Salamunalikum warahmatullah,

Gate of Knowledge Foundation is a group of passionate individuals who have just got one aim, Islam Awareness through Education. We believe that Islamic knowledge needs to be spread far and wide so everyone should benefit from it.

We run knowledge sessions, kids programs, events, write articles, blogs, share extraordinary content and academic research.

Inshallah, the overall purpose is to strengthen the support network for Imam Mahdi (may Allah swt hasten his reappearance)

Prophet Muhammad (s) said: ‘One who proceeds on a path in the pursuit of knowledge, God makes him proceed therewith on a path to the Garden (Paradise). And, verily, the angels spread their wings for the seekers of knowledge out of delight. Verily, every creature of the heaven and the earth asks forgiveness for the seeker of knowledge, even the fish in the sea. The merit of the `alim (the learned) over the ‘abid (the devout) is like the merit of the moon over the stars on a full‑moon night. The learned are the heirs of the prophets, for the prophets did not leave behind a legacy of wealth but that of knowledge. So whoever partakes of it derives copious benefit.'” [Al‑Kulayni, al‑Kafi, vol. 1, kitab fadl al‑’ilm, hadith # 1]

Imam Ali (a) said: ‘O seeker of knowledge, knowledge has many merits. (If you imagine it to be a human being then) its head is humbleness, its eye is freedom from envy, its ear is understanding, its tongue is truthfulness, its memory is research, its heart is good intention, its intellect is the knowledge (ma`rifah) of things and matters, its hand is compassion, its foot is visiting the learned, its resolution is integrity, its wisdom is piety, its abode is salvation, its helmsman is well-being, its mount is faithfulness, its weapon is softness of speech, its sword is satisfaction (ridha), its bow is tolerance, its army is discussion with the learned, its wealth are refined manners, its stock is abstinence from sins, its provision for journey is virtue, its drinking water is gentleness, its guide is Divine guidance, and its companion is the love of the elect.” [Al‑Kulayni, al-Kafi, kitab fadl al-‘ilm, bab al‑nawadir, hadith # 3]
