Imam Ibn Rajab al-Hanbali: “The sign of knowledge that does not benefit is pride, arrogance, and conceit. Such a person seeks high position and ranking in this world and competes for it. He debates with the scholars with the aim of defeating them, and argues with the foolish with the aim of directing their attention towards him. It is reported from the Prophet, peace and blessing be upon him, that whoever seeks knowledge for this purpose,"for him is the Fire, the Fire!" [ibn Majah No:254, ibn Hibban No:290, on the authority of Jabir. Albani, Sahih al-Jami’ No:7370 amongst others…]
