Importance of Fara’id
‘Umar Ibn Khattab (رضي الله عنه) said:
Learn Fara’id (knowledge of inheritance), language and the sunnah as you learn the Qur’an.
‘Abdullah Ibn Mas’ud (رضي الله عنه) said:
Learn Fara’id and teach it to the people. I am going to die, and the knowledge shall be removed that two men will disagree on an issue concerning Faraa’id and they will not find anyone who can decide between them.
‘Abdullah Ibn ‘Umar (رضي الله عنه) said:
Whoever studies the Qur’an should also study Fara’id.
