Whenever One Increases In Knowledge, Let Him or Her Remember These Two Aayaat- [A Short Faa’idah From Shaikh Uthaymeen (rahimahullaah)]
In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy
“Regardless what level you reach in knowledge, remember the [vast amount of knowldege] left behind by the predecessors for the successors.”
Shaikh Uthaymeen [rahimahullaah] said: This [statement] is good, but we say that what is better than that is: “Regardless what level you reach in knowledge, remember the statement of Allaah [The Mighty and Majestic]:
وَفَوْقَ كُلِّ ذِي عِلْمٍ عَلِيمٌ
But over all those endowed with knowledge is the All-Knowing [Allaah][Surah Yusuf’ Aayah 76]
And remember the other Aayah:
وَمَا أُوتِيتُم مِّنَ الْعِلْمِ إِلَّا قَلِيلًا
And of knowledge, you [mankind] have been given only a little.
[Surah Al-Israa’ Aayah 85]
