Knowledge is honor, if you abandon it, it will abandon you.

If you take the task seriously, you will be given some of it, from what Allah has decreed for you.

Hassan Al-Basree said:

“I met some people who would not feel elation at anything that they earn in this life, nor grieve for anything in it that they do not acquire.”


~ Az-Zuhd, by Imaam Ahmad p230

Imaam Ahmad (rahimahullaah) recorded a narration from Malik bin Nadlah (radi Allahu ‘anhu) who said,

“I came to Allaah’s Messenger while in filthy clothes.

He said,

«هَلْ لَكَ مَالٌ»

Do you have wealth?

I answered, ‘Yes.’ He said,

«مِنْ أَيِّ الْمَالِ»

What kind of wealth?

I answered, ‘All kinds: camels, slaves, horses, sheep.’ So he said,

«إِذَا آَتَاكَ اللَّهُ مَالًا فَلْيُرَ عَلَيْك»

If Allaah gives you wealth, then let it be seen on you.
