Hakeemul Ummat ra’s waseeyat #5

5.To seekers of knowledge I advise that they should not become arrogant merely by being involved in learning and teaching activities.

Acquiring true benefit of these activities is dependent on providing service to, keeping company with and receiving special attention of the pious (ahlul-Allah).

Special effort should be adopted to do this with precision (i.e. being with ahlul-Allah).

(Persian verse):

Without benevolence of Haqq or those dear to Haqq, (even)
If you were to become an angel, your profile will remain black.
