The Excellence Of Knowledge, Ibn Al-Qayyim


Ibn Al-Qayyim mentioned:

“… Optional knowledge is better than the excellence of extra and optional worship. This is because the benefit of knowledge is general, it benefits its possessor and it benefits the rest of the people as well. Whereas the benefit of worship is particular to the person who does that worship.

Also because with the scholar, his benefit and knowledge remains after his death. Whereas worship is cut off from him at his death.”

[Miftaah daaris Sa’aadah, 1/120]
