Living in this world would not be possible without science. It is appropriate as Muslims to continue to increase our knowledge, and also to be accompanied by prayer.
Allah Almighty will exalt the degree of people of faith and knowledge. So that humans should be competing to study. And God is the source of all knowledge. If you want knowledge to increase, try reading prayers to increase knowledge.
Having broad insight and knowledge is certainly everyone’s dream, maybe including you. because then we will not be difficult in living life. but still broad science is meaningless if it is not tempered with good morals. Then of course morals remain the top priority.
What is the dua to increase knowledge?
Rabbi Zidnee I’lmaa.
My Lord! increase me in knowledge
Allaahumma ‘innee ‘as’aluka ‘ilman naafi’an, wa rizqan tayyiban, wa ‘amalan mutaqabbalan
O Allah, I ask You for knowledge that is of benefit , a good provision , and deeds that will be accepted.
Rabbi hab lee hukman wa alhiqnee bis saliheen. Waj’al lee lisana sidqin fil akhireen. Waj’al nee min warathati jannatin na’eem. Waghfir li-abee innahu kanamina addalleen. Wala tukhzinee yawma yub’asoon. Yawma la yanfa’u malun walaa banoon. Illa man ata Allah bi qalbin saleem.
My Lord! Bestow Hukman (religious knowledge, right judgement of the affairs and Prophethood) on me, and join me with the righteous. And grant me an honourable mention in later generations. And place me among the inheritors of the Garden of Pleasure. And forgive my father. Indeed, he has been of those astray. And disgrace me not on the Day when (all the creatures) will be resurrected. The Day when there will not benefit [anyone] wealth or children, But only one who comes to Allah with a sound heart.
