Our Salaf: Maalik Ibn Deenaar–When a person seeks knowledge for action!
Maalik Bin Deenaar (rahimahullaah) said: ”When a slave (of Allaah) seeks knowledge to act upon it, it withholds him (from evil and guides him towards good). And when he seeks it for other than acting upon it, it increases him in boasting.”
