The ustadh spoke about the state man is born in, an ignorant state and how it is upon each individual for them to remove this state of ignorance, a state of jahal by seeking knowledge. The Ustadh went further to discuss the virtues of seeking knowledge and what ones intention should be for seeking knowledge.
