[3] Imaam Ash-Shaafi’ee (rahimahullaah)

Imaam Ash-Shaafi’ee (rahimahullaah) said:

”Whoever wants the dunyah (i.e. a blessed life in this dunyah and not that one seeks religious knowledge for the purpose worldly goods), then upon him is (to pursue) knowledge. And whoever wants the afterlife, then upon him is (to pursue) knowledge.”

Imaam Shaafi’ee (rahimahullaah):

”After fulfilling what Allaah has obligated (i.e. through knowledge that is Fard Ayn); there is (nothing) more virtuous than seeking knowledge (i.e. knowledge that is Fard Kifaayah) by way of which the slave seeks to get closer to Allaah.”
