The Scholars are three types—Abee Muslim Al-Khawlaanee (rahimahullaah)

Abee Muslim Al-Khawlaanee (rahimahullaah) said: The scholars are three types:

(a)A man who lives with his knowledge and people live with it alongside him; (b) A man who lives with his knowledge but none else besides him lives with it; (c) A man who lives with his knowledge and destroys himself. [1]

Shaikh Abdullaah Al-Bukhaari (may Allaah preserve him) said: He [i.e. Abee Muslim Al-Khawlaanee (rahimahullaah)] means by this that the first (man) knows, acts and teaches; the second (man) knows  and acts, but he does not teach; and the third (man) knows and teaches, but he does not act! [2]


[1] Reported by Ibn Abee Shaybah in Al-Musannaf 14/55; Abu Nu-aym in Al-Hilyah 5/12 with an authentic chain.
