The importance of seeking sound knowledge 


May Allah reward the translator abundantly آمين 
‎عن محمد بن سيرين رحمة الله عليه ، قال : إن قوما تركوا طلب العلم ، ومجالسة العلماء ، وأخذوا في الصلاة والصيام حتى يبس جلد أحدهم على عظمه ، ثم خالفوا السنة ، فهلكوا ، وسفكوا دماء المسلمين ، فوالذي لا إله غيره ، ما عمل أحد عملا على جهل إلا كان يفسد أكثر مما يصلح

A group of people left the study of knowledge and the gatherings of scholars and took up praying and fasting until the skin on their bones became dry. Then they went against the Sunnah and were destroyed, spilling the blood of the muslimeen. I swear by Allah, no one does an action upon ignorance except what he corrupts is more than what he rectifies.

– Imam Muhammad ibn Sirin رحمة الله عليه 

‎الاستذكار الجامع لمذاهب فقهاء الأمصار

‎ابن عبد البر رحمة الله عليه
