as God Almighty has said: ﴿مَا لَهُمْ بِهِ مِنْ عِلْمٍ إِلَّا اتِّبَاعَ الظَّنِّ ۚ[1]; “They have no knowledge about it, but only conjecture to follow”. Even most of those who make the effort for Islam and have no intention but to serve it, do not know it based on the intellect, and their motivation is nothing but emotions; to the extent that most of them are like sheep going anywhere they are driven! While their ignorance violates their purpose, and their neglect leads to the opposite of their intention; because loving Islam before knowing it is not beneficial, and working for it before gaining knowledge about it is hazardous; considering that an ignorant lover wants to benefit it, but harms it, and a negligent doer wants to serve it, but betrays it. Therefore, knowing Islam takes priority over loving it, and gaining knowledge about it is essential before working for it; but it seems that most Muslims love Islam while they do not know it, and work for it while they have no knowledge about it; such as those about whom God Almighty has said: ﴿وَمِنْهُمْ أُمِّيُّونَ لَا يَعْلَمُونَ الْكِتَابَ إِلَّا أَمَانِيَّ وَإِنْ هُمْ إِلَّا يَظُنُّونَ[2]; “And from among them are illiterate people who consider the religion nothing but wishes, and do nothing but conjecture”.

[Causes of ignorance about Islam]

Their ignorance about Islam is the heritage of their predecessors that has arisen from various causes; like that they do not pay enough attention to knowing Islam and are unaware of its obligation on every one of them, and like that they do not consider the intellect as the criterion of cognition, nor do they care about the conformity of their perceptions of Islam to it, rather they avoid it and are proud to abandon it, and like that they cite conjectural narrations in order to know Islamic beliefs, although they must be certain, rather they follow the sects of theologians, following whom has no principle in Islam, and like that they do not refer to the original sources of Islam in order to know its rulings, but imitate the sects of jurists that there is no reason for imitating them, rather there are reasons for not imitating them, and like that they pay less attention to the Quran than to narrations in order to know Islamic beliefs and rulings,
