First, let’s thanks to God Allah, and all prices to him, the Lord of the world, the creator of everything in the universe who has given us the mercies and blessing until we can attend this meeting in this place.
Secondly, peace be upon to our prophet Muhammad, who has moved our soul from the bad character to the good one. Who had guided us from the darkness to the lightness in this world as well as in the of judgment.
Thirdly, I’ll never forget to thank Mr. Chairman, who has given us an opportunity to deliver a speech in front of the public. Standing in front of you all I would present my speech under the title: “LOOKING FOR THE SCIENCE”
You must know that looking for science is the whole Moslem’s obligation.
Even the human kind in the world. It is called by our prophet Muhammad in this hadits
طَلَبُ الْعِلْمِ فَرِيْضَةٔ عَلٰى كُلِّ مُسْلِمٕ وَمُسْلمَةٕ
“The ecquisition of knowledge is a duty in cumbent on every Moslem, male and female.” (Related by Muslim)
Why our prophet Muhammad obligate us to looking for science? Because science is very important to our life. With science we can conquer the creatures in this world, like mountains, sky, moon, sun, fier animal and the planets.
With science we can be leader of all creatures in this world, we can be the best because of our science. If we don’t have will be like the other creatures. We will be foolish men and we do not know anything. So we will be worse than the creatures as like my said above, that looking for science is very important in this life, because with science we will get fortunate in the world or in the hereafter. Therefore, who want to get fortunate in this world, they must have science of world, so that who want to get fortunate in hereafter, they must have science of religion and do it in they life everyday. Like said by our prophet Muhammad said:
مَنْ أَرَادَ الدُّنْيَا فَعَلَيْهِ بِا لْعِلْمِ وَ مَنْ أَرَادَ الأخِرَةَ فَعَلَيْهِ بِا لْعِلْمِ وَ مَنْ أَرَادَ هُمَا فَعَلَيْهِ بِا لْعِلْمِ ( الحدث )
“Whosoever wants the world he should have knowledge, whosoever wants the next world hereafter he should have knowledge, too and whosoever wants both, the world and the next world hereafter, he should have knowledge.”
From this speech of our prophet Muhammad, we can to conclude that how the important of the science by life of man. Because the science, Allah wants to rise man hight rank. Allah saids in holy Qur’an in Mujadalah verses 11:
Æìsùöt ª!$# tûïÏ%©!$# (#qãZtB#uä öNä3ZÏB tûïÏ%©!$#ur (#qè?ré& zOù=Ïèø9$# ;M»y_uy 4 (المجادلة ١١)
“Allah will exalt those who believe among you and those who have knowledge to hight ranks……” (Al-Mujadalah verses: 11)
Because the knowledge to distinguish a man and animal. Therefore, the knowledge is very important by man of life. Allah said in holy Qur’an that the first verses was downed is verses of Al-Alaq and bigined with IQRA’ word the mean is read. This is to indicate that reading is good method to get science, without reading man difficult to get knowledge.
As human being, we have reason and intelligence. With this reason, we can look for science that will make us different from animal. The other creatures like animal and plant are unable to look for science, because they have no reason. That is why man is superior to other creatures. For example, man can conquer all creatures in this world such as huge mountain, ginat trees, wild, animal and so on.
We can emagine, suppose if we had knowledge, will be the same as te other creatures even worse than they are. Look at a crazy man, he is worse than animal, isn’t he? Time and place do not limit looking for science. The holy prophet said:
أُطْلُبُوا الْعِلْمَ مِنَ الْمَهْدِ اِلىَ اللَّهْدِ
”Seek knowledge from the cradle until the grave”
أُطْلُبُوا الْعِلْمَ وَلَوْ بِالصِّيْنِ
“Seek knowledge although in Cina”
Islam ordains a long life education. As long as we are still a live, we still have obligation look for knowledge.
That’s all for the time being. It is hoped that you have understood my speech well. Finally, I would like you to forgive me if I made mistakes in my speech. Thank a lot for your full attention to me. My Allah the almighty bestow on us His unldless blessings for this faithful activity.
