Seeking Knowledge of Islam Compulsory

Why is seeking knowledge of Islam compulsory?

Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) had said that seeking knowledge is compulsory for every Muslim. This is because of the tendency of human beings to deviate and fall into corruption and to pass this corruption down generation after generation as a legacy of immorality in different aspects of human life in relation to Allah, human beings around them. Because of that tendency, the Prophet (ﷺ), with Allah’s instructions, made it Fardh; a religious obligation on each and every Muslim to seek knowledge of the religion, to practice that religion of Islam based on knowledge and not on customs and traditions and to go back to the sources.
