Which is a better person in Islam - between one who has doctorate in medicine, or doctorate in deen? Can we compare these two?
Well the issue in the end is about who is more religious. Who is more pleasing in the sight of Allah?
Therefore, if that person who learned the religion was a showoff, then he is worse. The doctor is better. However, if both of them were religious and both of them have this knowledge, the one with the knowledge in deen is superior over the one with the knowledge in medicine. This is because the one with the knowledge in deen will be able to guide people in their lives, guide them to paradise. The one with the knowledge of medicine, he can help the few people who come to him. They get sick; they need this they need that, he can help them. Nevertheless, that help is not taking the person up to paradise.< Back to Questions
