It is clear that not caring about learning religion is one of the causes of being the worst of creation. If this ignorant man asked about this, what about those who claimed that they follow the Prophets and know their message, and everything is accessible, but he does not care? And when he attends or listens, he will be as mentioned by All?h: “Comes not to them an admonition (a chapter of the Qur??n) from their Lord as a recent revelation but they listen to it while they play. With their hearts occupied (with evil things).” [S?rah Al-Anbiy?’ 21:2-3]Also, when the Prophet (May All?h elevate his rank & grant him peace) said: “All?h has sent me,” he replied: with what you have been sent? He said: so and so.” Thus, it is clear that the essence of All?h’s Message and the Prophet’s Dawah is the Oneness of All?h (Tawh?d), no partners with Him, and destroying idols. It is clear that idols cannot be destroyed but by showing enmity against them and combating them. So, think about the essence of religion. He also understood Tawh?d and that it is a great notion. Therefore, he said: “Who has followed you in this?” he replied: “a freeman and a slave,” he said: all the scholars, kings and laypeople were against his opinion, and no one followed his opinion.” This indicates that the truth can be followed by the least amount of people, but falsehood may be followed by many. Fu?ayl Ibn Iy?? (May All?h have mercy upon him) said: “Do not be afraid of the truth for its little followers, and do not be fascinated with the falsehood for its numerous bad successors .“
