Never be afraid to ask a question. Being inquisitive teaches. And surely ‘the truth’ can only bring good, unless you are up to something no good. But, in the end your reliance upon truthfulness will be of benefit to you.

Of course, when asking a question you should be tackful, having a respect for whatever the circumstance or situation may be (ex. university class room, church, masjid, etc.). Is someone else talking, don’t just interrupt. The way we ask a question is important, but don’t let that keep you from asking if your question is important enough and you have tried to no avail to get the answer, being conscious of how you should ask, and also ‘whom.’ If a teenage girl has a question regarding herself she should go to her mother (although her father should be prepared for certain female questions). So, the circumstance can dictate who a person should approach for an answer.

Some questions may be too big for anyone we know. The Prophet Abraham (may peace and blessing from Allah be upon him) had some real ‘big’ questions which he took directly to God (Allah). For example:

With the name Allah, The Most Gracious, The Most Merciful.

And (mention) when Abraham said, “My Lord, show me how You give life to the dead.” (Allah) said, “Have you not believed?” He said, “Yes! but (I ask) only that my heart may be satisfied;” (Quran 2:260).

All the Praises belong to Allah.

How dare Abraham question Allah! But does Allah punish Abraham? No. Allah looked into Abraham’s heart which held true belief in Allah Most High. Abraham did not seek to mock Allah in any way, but only to strengthen his Faith in Allah

All the Praises belong to Allah Most High.

Can you see the tack Abraham showed when he questioned his fathers (his people).

When he (Abraham) said to his father and his people: “What are these images مَا هَذِهِ التَّمَاثِيْلُ , to which you are devoted?” They said: “We found our fathers worshiping them.” He said: “Indeed, you and your fathers have been in manifest error;” (Quran 21:52-54).

Never be afraid to ask a question, and never be afraid to speak the truth. The truth is from Allah, He is Al-Haqq (The Truth).

With the name Allah, The Most Gracious, The Most Merciful.

Say: “O my Lord! Let my entry be by the Gate of Truth and Honour, and likewise my exit by the Gate of Truth and Honour; and grant me from Your Presence an authority to aid (me). And say: “Truth has (now) arrived, and Falsehood perished: For Falsehood is ( by its nature) bound to perish;” (Quran 17:80-81).
