Importance of Seeking Knowledge

Mu’ath bin Jabal (ra) said: “ Seeking knowledge for the Sake of Allah is a khashyah (directs one to fear Allah), and an act of worship; studying the knowledge is Tasbih (praising Allah); searching for it is struggling for Allah; teaching it is a sadaqah (charity) to those who do not have it; conveying it to those who deserve to learn it is Qurbah (a good deed); and knowledge is the companion and the friend when one is alone.”
