Preserving the Jewels of Islaamic Knowledge

Warning Against Concealing Knowledge

Posted by tayybahppn on April 8, 2009

Allah  says in the Qur’an:


إِنَّ الَّذينَ يَكتُمونَ ما أَنزَلنا مِنَ البَيِّنٰتِ وَالهُدىٰ مِن بَعدِ ما بَيَّنّٰهُ لِلنّاسِ فِى الكِتٰبِ ۙ أُولٰئِكَ يَلعَنُهُمُ اللَّهُ وَيَلعَنُهُمُ اللّٰعِنونَ

Verily, those who conceal the clear proofs, evidences and the guidance, which We have sent downafter We have made it clear for the People in the Book, they are the ones cursed by Allah and cursed by the cursers.

{Surat Al-Baqarah 2:159}


This ayah generally goes into and refers to those people who hide knowledge. Such people are cursed by Allah .


The Prophet  said,

Whoever was asked about knowledge that one has, but he hid it, then a bridle made of fire will be tied around his mouth on the Day of Resurrection.”

[Abu Dawood]


And Abu Hurayrah  said about this ayah, “If it was not for an Ayah in Allah’s Book, I would not have narrated a Hadith for anyone.”
