Knowledge of Islamic Rules and Implementing them is the Lifeline of Every Muslim and all Humankind

Gaining the Knowledge of the daily Shariah rules necessary for life is an individual obligation (fard Ain) on every Muslim. This is because the Muslim is commanded to carry out his actions according to the Shariah rules, not according to interest and desire. وَمَا كَانَ لِمُؤْمِنٍ وَلَا مُؤْمِنَةٍ إِذَا قَضَى اللَّهُ وَرَسُولُهُ أَمْراً أَن يَكُونَ […]
