Learning Islamic Rulings

Learning Islamic RulingsA Muslim is required to learn about the Islamic rulings in all aspects of life—acts of worship, social relationships, among other things—in order to carry out his duties with accurate knowledge and immense certainty, as the Qur’an states, “Whomever Allah wishes to show goodness, He gives him understanding of the religion.” (Saheeh Al-Bukhaaree: 71; Saheeh Muslim: 1037)

Therefore, he must learn all about the religious duties he is required to undertake, such as purification, the manner of performing the prayer (salaat ) and the lawful and unlawful foods and drinks in Islam. He is also urged to learn about acts which are recommended but not obligatory.
