quotes of the pious

Taqwa knowledge and beauty

It is reported that Abû Al-Dardâ – Allâh be pleased with him – said:
You will never be pious (a person of taqwâ) until you become knowledgeable, and you will never be beautiful with your knowledge until you act [by it].

Ibn Ábd Al-Barr, Jâmi’ Bayân Al-’Ilm wa Fadlihî article 1239.

The quest of knowledge

عن أبى هريرة رضى الله عنه قال‏:‏ قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم‏: من سلك طريقا يلتمس فيه علما سهل الله له طريقا إلى الجنة ، و إن الملائكة لتضع أجنحتها لطالب العلم رضا بما يصنع ، و إن العالم ليستغفر له من في السماوات و من في الأرض ، حتى الحيتان في الماء ، و فضل العالم على العابد كفضل القمر على سائر الكواكب ، و إن العلماء ورثة الأنبياء ، إن الأنبياء لم يورثوا دينارا و لا درهما ، إنما ورثوا العلم ، فمن أخذه أخذ بحظ وافر

Abu Hurairah ( رضي الله عنه) reported that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: "He who follows a path in quest of knowledge, Allah will make the path of Jannah easy to him. The angels lower their wings over the seeker of knowledge, being pleased with what he does. The inhabitants of the heavens and the earth and even the fish in the depth of the oceans seek forgiveness for him. The superiority of the learned man over the devout worshipper is like that of the full moon to the rest of the stars (i.e., in brightness). The learned are the heirs of the Prophets who bequeath neither dinar nor dirham but only that of knowledge; and he who acquires it, has in fact acquired an abundant portion.'
