In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful,
'Read! In the name of your Lord Who has created,
He has created man from a clot,
Read! and your Lord is Most Generous,
Who has taught by the pen,
He has taught man which he knew not.
Holy Quran, Surah Al Alaq 96:1-5
Sunan Ibn Majah, Chapter 1, The Book of the Sunnah, hadith number 226:
Narrated: Zirr bin Hubaish
I went to Safwan bin Assal Al-Muradi and he said: ‘What brought you here?’ I said: ‘I am seeking knowledge.’ He said: ‘I heard the Messenger of Allah (saw) say: “There is no one who goes out of his house in order to seek knowledge, but the angels lower their wings in approval of his action.’”
