SOMETIMES Muslims question the need to know about world affairs.

The Holy Qur’aan itself refers to the battles between the then world superpowers, Persia and Rome, in Surah Rum.

In these verses, although the Arabs were far removed from the battles, the Qur’aan mentioned the fact that the Muslims would become happy at the victory of the Romans.

Knowledge of world affairs is compatible with piety and is in accordance with Islamic principles.
