Question

I'm 23 and studying cost and management
accountancy. I frequently think my
education is not according to Islam, because,
this education won't help us on the Day of
Judgment.
Is it correct to say that we should learn
Quran and Sharee'ah law first and then learn
other knowledge? If it is correct, then are we
committing sin by studying worldly
education and knowing nothing about Islam?

Fatwa:
All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the
Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of
worship except Allah, and that Muhammad
is His Slave and Messenger.

Knowledge is of two kinds:
1) Fard 'Ayn (individual obligation). It is
every Muslim's duty to acquire such
knowledge. One who neglects such knowledge
is sinful. This kind includes: learning the
sound essentials of Islamic creed and pillars
of Islam such as prayer, Zakah, fasting and
Hajj.
2) Fard Kifaayah (collective duty). It means
that if some people have acquired such
knowledge, the others will be exempt of
responsibility. This kind includes: worldly
sciences such as medicine, accounting and
other sciences that the Muslim society needs.
You should know that learning Fard al-'Ayn
knowledge comes in priority. Then, you can
do your best to acquire other kind of
knowledge (Fard Kifaayah) such as accounting
and, Inshaa Allah, you will be rewarded for
that since you work to satisfy the Muslim
society's need.

Allah Knows best.
