Shams Aimma Sarahsi (rahmatullah alayh), a great Hanafi scholar said:

Indeed, after believing in Allahu Ta’ala, the strongest Fard is to acquire Islamic knowledge. Hence, Rasulullah (s.a.w.) said:

To acquire (Islamic) knowledge is Fard upon every man and woman.

Indeed the prophets did not leave behind gold and silver. They only left behind knowledge. Whoever acquires from it, will have gained a great share.

Knowledge is in two parts: The knowledge of Tawhid and Aqaid, and Fiqh.

The foundation of the knowledge of Tawhid is to hold on tightly to the Qur’an and Sunnah, to stay away from Bid’at and desires, and follow the path of Sahaba, Tabi’un and Salafi Salihin. Even though their bodies are covered with soil, their works are still alive.

Fiqh knowledge, is a ‘great goodness’ as stated in Surah Baqarah, Ayah 269:And whoever has been given wisdom has certainly been given great goodness.Ibn Abbas said: “The ‘wisdom’ in this Ayah means to know the rules concerning Halal and Haram.

Allahu Ta’ala invites the believers to learn Fiqh with the Ayah: “…But there should separate from them a group who remain to obtain understanding in the religion and warn their people when they return to them that they might be cautious.” (Surah Tawbah, Ayah 122). The duty to warn people about the punishments of Allah and to invite them to the truth has been given to true Islamic scholars who have obtained Fiqh knowledge. This is the degree of the prophets, who have left knowledge behind for people to inherit. In the Hadith Shareef it is said:

True scholars are the heirs of prophets.

Whoever Allah desires goodness for, Allah makes them well-informed in Islamic knowledge (Fiqh).

For this reason, great Sahaba and the Tabi’un studied and acquired Fiqh knowledge.
