What Did Our 'Ilm Do For Us?

From the sayings of ‘Abdullāh ibn Al-Mubārak رحمه الله:

‘We acquired ‘ilm (religious knowledge) for the world, but it led us to leave the world aside.’[1]

One who acquires true ‘ilm will find that it leads him away from overindulgence in the pleasures of this world, and a deeper yearning for the pleasures of the Hereafter.

[1] Ibn Khallikān in Wafayāt Al-A‘yān.

ومن كلام ابن المبارك رحمه الله: تعلمنا العلم للدنيا فدلنا على ترك الدنيا.
