VIDEO - DROPPING OUT FROM SECULAR KNOWLEDGE? NOT APPRECIATED IN ISLAM
The scholar explains everything very clearly. However, Islam never advocates about dropping out of Degree courses etc. Some people left pursuit of higher education only because they felt they were not hard-pressed for finances and they wanted to serve humanity with their call for Islam like Maulana Tariq Jameel. Dr. Israr, was a qualified doctor from King Edward also and he founded an Islamic institution because he felt he could make a difference there with a unique approach. His voice changed the lives of many indeed.
What most Muslims of today don't understand is that we need to have a basic understanding of Islam as to how to live this life on the basis of principles of Islam. Everyone does not need to become an Islamic scholar and of course everyone cannot become one. Once we have the basic knowledge of Islam, we are free to conquer this universe or dive into the depth of different disciplines of life as per the principles of Islam. That basic understanding/knowledge of Islam provides us with a vision. Unfortunately, most educated Muslims of today lack that vision because they thought being secular is everything and this world is everything. Hence they didn't bother to acquire that knowledge. In Qur'an: "If you obey most of those on earth, they will lead you astray from the path of Allah. They follow nothing but conjecture: they do nothing but lie." - Qur'an (6: 116)"
