High Position of Teaching and Teacher in Islam

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

It is clear that having sufficient knowledge is necessary to have an Ideal life.
On the other hand, when a man is born, he/she does not know anything and needs to be educated.
Hence, one of the most important persons in a society is the teacher. A teacher teaches required things to the student and guides him/her to the right way. Teacher is able to instruct the customs of life to his/her student and ensure his/her future. And also teacher can prevent his/her student from slip and mistake.
Due to this high position of a teacher, the sacred religion of Islam gives directives about the place and rights of teacher. In fact, the high position of a teacher is because of the high position of science and learning in Islam. As it is stated in the Glorious Qur’an: “Say: Are those who know equal to the ones who do not know? (39:9)
And also, Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him and his progeny) has said: “The good of the world and the Hereafter is in learning and the evil of the world and the Hereafter is in ignorance.” (Bihār al-Anwār/volume79/page170)

قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا أَحْمَدُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَنِ بْنِ أَبِي نَجْرَانَ وَ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ الْحُسَيْنِ عَنْ عَمْرِو بْنِ عَاصِمٍ عَنِ الْمُفَضَّلِ بْنِ سَالِمٍ عَنْ جَابِرٍ عَنْ أَبِي جَعْفَرٍ ع قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ص‏ إِنَّ مُعَلِّمَ‏ الْخَيْرِ يَسْتَغْفِرُ لَهُ دَوَابُّ الْأَرْضِ وَ حِيتَانُ الْبَحْرِ وَ كُلُّ ذِي رُوحٍ فِي الْهَوَاءِ وَ جَمِيعُ أَهْلِ السَّمَاءِ وَ الْأَرْضِ ...


Also the holy prophet said:

Indeed livestocks and fishes in the sea and anything which has a spirit (is alive) in the sky and all of the residents of the skies and the earth, will seek forgiveness (Al Maqfira') for a good teacher…

Basair Al Darajat, V 1, P 3
