The virtues of knowledge, the excellence of seeking it and the superiority of the ‘ulema are countless in the Qur’an and ample in the authentic prophetic hadiths. As for the statements of the pious predecessors and their followers and their disciples up to this day, then entire volumes can be filled which would cover walls of libraries.
This is a simple compilation of the forty prophetic hadith that I have selected for myself firstly and for the dear readers- my brothers and sisters in Islam secondly. I have tried my best to keep the book in the simplest and easiest form possible. ~Mufti Muhammad ibn Muneer
