Shaykh Muḥammad ibn ʿAbd al-Waḥhāb al-Aqīl explains the Ḥadīth of the Messenger (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam): "Whoever Allāh wants good for, He gives him understanding of the dīn." This Ḥadīth is so important that some of the scholars have written works based upon it. Shaykh Muḥammad ibn ʿAbd al-Waḥhāb al-Aqīlis one of the well-known scholars of Medīnah, and is a lecturer at the Islamic University of Menīnah. He wrote his PhD thesis on the topic: ʿAqīdah in the Belief in the Angels'. This lecture is translated by Abū Ḥakīm Bilāl Davis. (From the 2012 Madīnah Dawrah hosted by Salafī Publications.)

During the Toronto seminar, Bulūgh al-Marām: Chapter of Purification, in January 2017, our noble and respected Shaykh delivered a very important lecture concerning the importance of clinging to the Qurʾān and the Sunnah and the methodology of the Salaf, and the importance of staying away from the two extremes of exaggeration and falling short. Instead, one should maintain a balanced path of understanding, which can only be attained through seeking knowledge.
Seeking knowledge is a lengthy path that is not possible to embark upon except by abandoning play and amusement and approaching it in a serious manner. This is because Allāh the Exalted, the Most High, described what He revealed to Muḥammad (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhī wa-salām), and He (Allāh) is the most truthful in speech, as a weighty word. Allāh the Exalted, the Most High says, “Soon shall We send down to thee a weighty word.” [Sūrah al-Muzzammil, 73:5]
An extremely important benefit concerning the importance of curing ignorance with the medicine of knoweldge.
