"Verily, grasping the forms of knowledge only benefits,
those who act upon them whilst being a pious person.”

Abu Abdillah Muhammad ibn Ali ibn Abdillah as-Soori recited the following verses:


كم إلى كم أغدو إلى طلب العلم ٭ مجدا في جمع ذاك حفيا
طالبا منه كل نوع وفن ٭ و غريب و لست أعمل شيئا
و إذا كان طالب العلم ٭ لا يعمل بالعلم كان عبدا شقيا
٭ بها عاملا و كان تقيا إنما تنفع العلوم لمن كان



“For how long will I strive in seeking knowledge, 
working hard to gather it and welcoming it warmly,

Seeking to study from it all of its forms and subjects, 
and difficult topics, while not producing any deeds at all?

If the one seeking knowledge doesn’t produce good deeds, based on his knowledge, 
he becomes a wretched servant;

Verily, grasping the forms of knowledge only benefits, 
those who act upon them whilst being a pious person.”

Taken from: Knowledge Mandates Action (Iqtidaa-ul-‘Ilm al-‘Amal) By Imaam Abu Bakr Ahmad bin Alee Al-Khateeb Al-Baghdaadee (D. 463H)
