Stick to the scholars…
Shaykh Abdus-Salaam Ibn Barjas Rahimahullaah:
“O student! If you want knowledge from its sources then you should stick to the great scholars [Kibâr-ul-'ulama]: those who have gray beards and weak bodies and have lost their power in [pursuit of] knowledge and educating. Stick to them before they disappear and take from their treasure before they take it with them.
One misses the full-moon in the dark night.”
