Ibraaheem Ibn Habeeb Ibn Ash-Shaheed (rahimahullaah) said: ”My father said to me: O my son! Go to the jurists and the scholars. Learn from them and take from their (good) etiquettes, (good) manners and (upright) guidance. Indeed that would be more beloved to me than if you were to narrate numerous hadeeth.
