Knowledge of Imam al-Sadiq (a.s.)

Abu-Abdullah Ja'far al-Sadiq (a.s.) quotes the Apostle of Allah (s.a.w.) as saying:

"Knowledge-seeking is an obligation on every Muslim. Allah certainly likes knowledge-seekers." 47

"Prophet is Allah's proof on His servants. And the proof between the servants and Allah is the reason." 48

"He who learns, acts in accordance to what he learns, and teaches for the sake of Allah, is ranked in the Kingdom of Allah as 'a great man'. It shall be said, 'He learned for the sake of Allah, acted for the sake of Allah and taught for the sake of Allah.'"
