The Highest Knowledge

Peace, one and all…

‘The Prophet (alaihi al-salatu wa al-salam) said: ‘Seek knowledge even as far as China’.  There is more than one kind of knowledge, however.  The highest knowledge is the knowledge that helps us to realise what it means to be a human being: the purpose of being human, and our relationship with Absolute Truth, Allah’
(Shaykh Kabir Helminski, The Book of Language, p. 86)
