Should One Possess Knowledge Or Wealth?


‘Alee Ibn Abee Taalib (ra) said:

“Verily knowledge is more precious than wealth.

Knowledge  preserves you, while you preserve wealth.

Knowledge judges while wealth is judged upon.

The possessors of wealth have died, while the possessors of knowledge live on.

Their (the scholars) bodies have passed away, but they are still present in the hearts of the people.”

[Adab Al-Dunya Wa Al-Deen, p.48]
