Advice To Students Of Knowledge From Sufyaan Ath-Thawree


Sufyaan Ath-Thawree said:

“When a question or some verdict is put forward to you,then seize the opportunity,but do not vie or compete for them. Take care not to be like he one who loves that his sayings are acted upon, or that his saying should be publicised or heard – and when it is not, then the effects of that [rejection] can be seen on him.”

[Al-Hilyah, by Aboo Nu’aym, 6/377]
