  Imām Ibn al-Qayyim al-Jawziyyah

An inspiring reminder of the importance of acting upon knowledge. Stated the noble Imām of Ahl al-Sunnah wa-al-Jamāʿah, Ibn al-Qayyim al-Jawziyyah, “I have met many mashāyikh and the affair of one was different from the other, and their knowledge capacities were of varying levels. And the one whose company I benefited from the most was the one who used to apply what he knew, even though there were those who were more knowledgeable than him."

How to Read the Books of the People of Knowledge

This is because Allāh the Exalted, the Most High, described what He revealed to Muḥammad (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam), and He (Allāh) is the most truthful in speech, as a weighty word.
