Q1. What is the Personal Obligatory Knowledge of the Religion [Islam]?
A1. The Personal Obligatory Knowledge of the Religion is the amount that one has to learn from the Knowledge of Belief, the rules of purification (taharah), prayer (salat), fasting, and judgments pertaining to dealings for the one who engages in transactions. Other issues about which one must know are also included such as the sins of the heart, the organs, the tongue and the like. Moreover, the one for whom az-Zakah is obligatory has to know about the explicit judgments pertaining to az-Zakah. Likewise, the one who is able to perform Pilgrimage (Hajj) has to know about its rules. The prophet, sallallahu ^alayhi wa sallam, said:
طلب العلم فريضة على كل مسلم
Which means: Seeking the Personal Obligatory Knowledge is obligatory upon every Muslim (narrated by al-Bayhaqiyy)
