Should One Possess Knowledge Or Wealth?

Alee Ibn Abee Taalib (radiallaahu `anhu) 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]

About Umm Abdulazeez

"I am a Muslim who is upon the Qur'aan and the Sunnah and upon the methodology of the Salaf As-Saalih (Pious Predecessors). And that can be said in short by saying, 'I am a Salafee' " [Shaykh Al-Albaanee رحمه الله] ________ Sufyaan Ath-Thawree (rahimahullaah) said: “Indeed knowledge should only be learned for the purpose of fearing Allaah. Indeed, knowledge has been given virtue over other than it because with it Allaah is feared.” [Jaam'i Bayaan al-'Ilm wa Fadlihi by Imaam Ibn Abdil-Barr (rahimahullaah)]
