Knowledge and Faith
We ask Allah, most high, to grant us knowledge and faith – they are the greatest and highest of the gifts of the Most Merciful. These people are the best of the best, the very core. They are the ones qualified for the high levels and lofty statuses.
Imam Ibn all Qayyim (rahimahu Allah) said: "The best that the souls have acquired, and that the hearts have obtained, and that with which the slave has attained prestige in this world and the hereafter – is knowledge and faith. And for that, the Exalted has linked them in His saying: 'And those who have been bestowed with knowledge and faith will say: Indeed, you have stayed according to the Decree of Allah, until the Day of Resurrection.' [Ar-Room:56] And His saying: 'Allah will exalt in degree those of you who believe (have faith), and those of you who have been granted knowledge.' [Al-Mujadilah:11]"
