Knowledge Is Power
Knowledge a sort of thing that separates an ignorant person from learned one. Knowledge is must and without knowledge a body is like without soul. Hence it is necessary for a person to gain knowledge at any cost. Today, many institutions have sprung up with both the intension that is imparting education and earning money from it. But we should gain knowledge as this knowledge would be our source of earning. It would make us stand in this complex world. We should gain even Islamic knowledge to see about our past and present. Knowledge is like a torch that lights others. And a learned person would educate another person like that knowledge would spread on generations to come. We should keep ourselves updated and not out dated. In today's world knowledge is must or we would be thrown away. Government has also taken many measures and steps to launch various schemes to attract students towards schools and institutions imparting education to gain free knowledge. Knowledge gained cannot be stolen and it can be put to use at times to come we would only have profit regarding knowledge and no loss would be gained. Hence make up our mind to gain knowledge as soon as possible and insist our children to join nearby school. Islam also insists to gain knowledge and become an educated person and not to remain illiterate.
If anyone travels on a road in search of knowledge, Allah will cause him to travel on one of the roads of Paradise.
