Knowledge is mandatory in order to be successful on the path to peace and happiness. But what type of knowledge? Is it secular knowledge such as the knowledge of math and science? Or is it the knowledge about how to meet the challenges that life presents to us such as the meaning of life, what is moral and what is not, what comes after death, etc. This lecture tackles the many important aspects of seeking knowledge and the attitude and understanding one must have to be successful in such an endeavor. Imam Mokhtar looks at the importance of seeking knowledge, the virtues of seeking knowledge, the three things that continue to benefit a person after death, the right intention in seeking knowledge, the four types of people seeking knowledge, the importance of women seeking knowledge, examples of women participating in society and seeking knowledge in early Islamic history, and learning wisdom at an early age. Other topics discussed: are women allowed to seek knowledge by going away to college alone, the Islamic concept of freedom, and can women lecture at a conference where men are present?
