Knowledge Hive is an opportunity to take time away from being completely occupied with this dunya to train and immerse yourself to strive for the Hereafter. It is an opportunity to isolate yourself from the distractions of the dunya and concentrate on mental and spiritual refinement through intensive study of your deen.
