Where did the name of the blog orginate?

Assalamu Alaykum,
Behind the name of this blog lies a story which I wish to share....
Some of the posters on this blog are graduates of Madrasah Al Zahra. In our final year we wrote a book as a class as a small token of appreciation to our Principal who guided us throughout the seven years, with the tawfiq of Allah, whilst we were at the Madrassah. The name of the book was: Al 'ilm al-Nafi' which one member of the class came up with. After much help from many people here it is for everyone to read:

After graduating many of us didn't know how to reach out to people with our knowledge. We really wanted to act upon the Hadith of the Messenger (Peace and blessings be upon him):

بلغوا عني ولو اية

"Spread from me even if it be a single ayah".

After much help, support and ideas from the people we knew, a Sister came up with the idea that we start a blog. So, Alhamdulillah that is exactly what we have done. However, deciding on a name was quite hard! After much thought, we came to a decision that what name could be better than the name of the book we wrote:

"Al'ilmun Nafi-Beneficial Knowledge"

Having the blog the same name as the book is just a mark from us to that our work hasn't stopped with the booklet. Insha'Allah, we aim to get the message of the true Deen (religion) Islam far and wide to all corners of the world.

I urge all readers to constantly make du'aa (to supplicate) to Allah the Almighty, that He help us to deliver to others only that which is haqq (the truth).

Many of us will be posting on the blog. I urge all readers to notify us of any mistakes and to keep yourselves updates with the blog.

May Allah truly make this a means of attaining some beneficial knowledge. Ameen

Indeed, true teachings of Islam are like mansions of pure knowledge. When one acquires upright & beneficial knowledge, then there comes unshakeable faith.

May Allah (SWT) ease your way for disseminating the truth (Haqq)to others. Aa'meen!
