Alhamdulillah… Infinite praise and thanks are due to the Almighty Allah, the ultimate inspirer of all good legacy. He has provided for everyone all the possible means to attain the good of life. Complete blessings and salutations go to anyone with a good legacy.
In Islam, legacy comes in various forms. It comes in the form or money or property. It comes in the form of children. It also comes in the form of knowledge.
This is understood from the ḥadīth of Imām Abū Dāwūd from the narration of Sayyidunā Abū al-Dardā’ raḍiya Allāhu ‘anhu, that the Prophet ṣallā Allāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam says:
وَإِنَّ الْعُلَمَاءَ وَرَثَةُ الأَنْبِيَاءِ وَإِنَّ الأَنْبِيَاءَ لَمْ يُوَرِّثُوا دِينَارًا وَلاَ دِرْهَمًا وَرَّثُوا الْعِلْمَ فَمَنْ أَخَذَهُ أَخَذَ بِحَظٍّ وَافِرٍ
“The learned are the heirs of the Prophets, and the Prophets leave neither dinar nor dirham, leaving only knowledge, and he who takes it takes an abundant portion.”
