(2) Benefits and Pearls from Rawdatul ‘Uqalā – Consequences of Acting, or not Acting on Knowledge
It is reported that Mālik ibn Dīnār (rahimahullāh) said,
If a man seeks knowledge to act upon it, his knowledge will make him happy. And if he seeks knowledge, for other than acting upon it, his knowledge increases him in haughtiness.
