Q: I have heard people say that it is important to gain knowledge in Islam. Is it true? Which knowledge does it refer to, secular or religious? Why?
A: It is important to gain knowledge of the obligations and sunnats of deen as well as the prohibitions and undesirable acts in deen.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
