Read: the first word to be revealed to Prophet Muhammad ﷺ. Even if this was the only reference to seeking knowledge in Islam, the fact that it is was chosen as the first word of the Quran to be revealed to humankind would be enough to demonstrate its utter magnitude. With the proper intention and etiquette, seeking knowledge is one of the greatest acts of worship.
