It was narrated that Anas bin Malik, may Allah ta'ala be pleased with him said,

the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said:

"Seeking Knowledge is a duty upon every Muslim".

Scholars are the inheritors of the Prophets.  We can never become scholars but if we try to learn the core subjects as per the designed curriculum of our elders, which they named as ‘Alim Program’, and we call it "Arabic and Shariah Program", we have a hope in Allah ta'ala that He will write our names in the list of the inheritors of the prophets.  This  is a 6-years program based on the traditional Dars-e-Nizami Curriculum.
