Benefit: What Is Knowledge When It Is Merely Statements Without Actions?

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

وَالعِلْمُإِنْكَانَأَقْوَالًابِلَاعَمَلِ     فَلَيْتَ صَاحِبَهُفِيالجَهْلِمُنْغَمِرُ

“And when knowledge is just statements without action, 
Had only its companion been submerged in ignorance.”

You must perform deeds in accordance with knowledge. Knowledge without action is like trees without fruits. What are the benefits of trees that do not bear any fruit? Thus, Allāh has become angry with such people because they have knowledge, yet they do not act in accordance with it. So they justly deserve the anger of Allāh, the Glorified and Most High. And they deserve His disgust and hatred of them, even while they may believe themselves to be people of civilization, advancement, high status, and all the other claims that they make! The reality is that they are upon misguidance and have earned the anger of Allāh, the Exalted and Most High.1
