The Six Stages Of Learning, By Ibn Al-Qayyim

Ibn al-Qayyim – rahimahullaah – said:

“There are six stages to knowledge:-

Firstly: Asking questions in a good manner.

Secondly: Remaining quiet and listening attentively.

Thirdly: Understanding well.

Fourthly: Memorising.

Fifthly: Teaching.

Sixthly: and it is its fruit: Acting upon the knowledge and keeping to its limits.”
[Miftaah Daarus-Sa'aadah (p.283)]
