প্রত্যেক মুসলমানের জ্ঞানার্জন করা ফরয। জ্ঞান-বিজ্ঞানের উৎস হল কুরআন মজীদ। আধুনিক জ্ঞান-বিজ্ঞান ও কুরআন হাকীম একই সূত্রে গাঁথা। তাই বিজ্ঞানের যতই উৎকর্ষ সাধিত হচ্ছে কুরআন মাজীদের অলৌকিকত্ব ততই বিকশিত হচ্ছে। জ্ঞান আহরণ ও বিজ্ঞান গবেষণায় কুরআন হাকীম হল পথ প্রদর্শক ও পথনির্দেশক। কুরআন মাজীদের সাথে যেটির সাংঘর্ষিক তা প্রকৃত বিজ্ঞান নয়। কুরআন হাকীমে ইল্ম বা জ্ঞান-বিজ্ঞান শব্দটি ৭৭৯ বারের বেশি ইরশাদ হয়েছে। কুরআন গবেষণায় আতœনিয়োগে উৎসাহিত করে আল্লাহ্ তা’আলা ইরশাদ করেন, তারা কি কুরআন নিয়ে চিন্তা-গবেষণা করে না? নাকি তাদের মনের দুয়ারে তালা দেয়া আছে? (সূরাহ্ মুহাম্মদ-২৪)
