Hadith Explanation

Understanding of the Deen

The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “When Allah desires good for someone, He gives him understanding of the Deen.” [Bukhaari]

Knowledge (understanding of the Deen) is the shortest path to Allah. Whoever travels the road of knowledge reaches Allah and the Garden by the shortest route. Knowledge also clears the way out of darkness, ignorance, doubt and skepticism. It is why Allah called His Book, “Light.”

There are two kinds of knowledge: knowledge of the tongue and knowledge of the heart. The second kind is the beneficial kind which raises people in rank; it is the knowledge which is absorbed by the heart and puts it right. The knowledge that is on the tongue is taken lightly by people: neither those who possess it, nor anyone else, act upon it, and it is of no use on the Day of Judgement.

Understanding of the Deen is Allah’s gift to the heart of that person whom He loves.
