Manners of those seeking knowledge and Students of the Quran
Many Muslims know that seeking knowledge is encouraged in Islam, but a few know what is necessary as far as intention, deeds and manners when seeking knowledge.
Abu Hurairah (R.A) said, “I heard the Messenger of Allah saying, the world is cursed, that which is in it is cursed, except zikr Allah (remembering Allah) and what follows it, or a learned person, or a student.” (Ibn e Majah)
