What is knowledge?

96:1 Read in the name of your LordLaw who creates,
96:2 Creates man from magnetic particles.
96:3 Read and your LordLaw is most Liberal,
96:4 Who taught by the Pen,
96:5 Taught mankind what it knew not.
96:6 Man, on the other hand, crosses the limits,
96:7 In thinking himself his own Master!
96:8 Indeed, to your LordLaw is the return.

You are free to choose but you are not free from the consequence of your choice.

How is knowledge acquired?

Allah has not made for any man two hearts. (33:4)

I have turned my face to Him Who manifested the heavens and earth into being, a pure natural believer. I am not one of the mushrikun. (6:79)

Is human knowledge trustworthy?

Have you seen the one who has taken his own passion as his god? Would you then be a Guide to him? (25:43)

You cannot will, unless Allah wills. (76:30)

__________
Free will is an illusion. People always choose the perceived path of greatest pleasure.

Can our senses be trusted?

Then He formed him and breathed His Ruh into him and gave you hearing, sight and hearts. What a little gratitude you acknowledge. (32:9)

We created many of the jinn and mankind for Hell. They have hearts they do not understand with. They have eyes they do not see with. They have ears they do not hear with. Such people are like cattle. No, they are even further astray! They are the unaware. (7:179)

The likeness of those who are kafir is that of someone who yells out to something which cannot hear — it is nothing but a cry and a call. Deaf — dumb — blind. They fail to understand. (2:171)

Difference between opinion, knowledge and wisdom?

They are only following their guess, and they only tell lies. (10:66)

That is Allah: your LordLaw. Apart from the truth, what else is there, except lies? (10:32)
