Sayyidi wa sanadi Mufti Mohammed Taqi Usmani (Allah protect & preserve him) said,
“The advice is that acquiring knowledge on its own is not beneficial, it must be accompanied with action. The primary purpose is to follow the Sunnah in all areas of life.
Many non-Muslim orientalists have more knowledge than many Muslims, however, their knowledge is of little benefit.
A person who wishes to act upon the knowledge should remain in the company of scholars and pious people and always have the intention to please Allah Almighty.”
