*!* Knowledge is Better than Money! *!*

Bismillaah!
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Knowledge is Better than Money


Alee رضي الله عنه said:


اَلْعِلْمُخَيْرٌمِنَ المَالِ

Knowledge is better than money,

لأَنَّ المَالُ تحْرِسُهُ وَ الْعِلْمُ يَحْرِسُكَ


since you have to protect money, while knowledge protects you.


وَ المَالُ تُفْنِيهِ اَلنَّفَقَةُ وَ الْعِلْمُ يَزْكُو عَلَى الإِنْفَاقِ

And money is depleted from spending, while knowledge grows when you spend it.

وَ الْعِلْمُ حَاكِمُ وَ المَالُ مَحْكُمُ عَلَيْهِ

And knowledge makes rulings, while money is ruled over.


مَاتَ خُزَّانُ المَالِ وَ هُمْ أَحْيَاءٌ وَ الْعُلَمَاءُ بَاقُونَ مَا بَقِيَ الدَّهْرُ


People who hoard money have died while they are still living, while the scholars live on through the ages. . .


أَعْيَانُهُمْ مَفْقُودَةٌ وَ آثَارُهُمْ فِي الْقُلُوْبِ مَوْجُودَةٌ

Their souls may have passed away, but their effects remain present in the hearts of people.
(جَامِعُ ْبَيَانِ الْعِلْم وَ فَضْله #٢٨٤ وَ إِسْنَادُهُ ضَعِيفٌ)
