Kelebihan org berilmu


Allah akan mengangkat (derajat) orangorang yang beriman di antaramu dan orangorang yang diberi ilmu beberapa derajat
(Al-Mujaadalah: 11)

Surah Az-Zumar: 9 dan Al-Hasyr: 20, Allah membandingkan antara orang yang mengetahui dengan orang yang tidak mengetahui dan ahli surga dengan ahli neraka dengan redaksi yang mirip.

Kelebihan org berilmu


Keutamaan Orang Alim atas ahli ibadah adalah seperti keutamaanku atas orang yang paling rendah dari sahabatku. (HR. Ad Dailami). Sesungguhnya para Nabi tidak mewariskan dinar dan dirham, sesungguhnya mereka hanyalah mewariskan ilmu, maka barangsiapa yang telah mengambilnya, maka ia telah mengambil bagian yang banyak. (HR. Abu
Dawud dan At-Tirmidzi).

Mencari ilmu pengetahuan adalah kewajiban bagi setiap Muslim, lelaki & perempuan. Barangsiapa berjalan untuk menuntut ilmu maka Allah akan memudahkan baginya jalan ke syurga (HR. Muslim).

A master's degree deepens that specialty:

Reading research papers takes you to the edge of human knowledge:

Once you're at the boundary, you focus:

You push at the boundary for a few years:

Until one day, the boundary gives way:

And, that dent you've made is called a Ph.D.:

Of course, the world looks different to you now:

So, don't forget the bigger picture:
