May Allah Almighty give us from His Divine Wisdom, because we may have knowledge, but if no wisdom, knowledge is going to do nothing. We are in need of wisdom, and a little wisdom is more important than all of this world’s knowledge. Knowledge cannot push or pull you, but wisdom may pull you or push you. In wisdom there is power. Therefore, knowledge without wisdom never gives benefit.
If knowledge could give benefit to anyone, it would have given it to Satan, as he was the first in knowledge, knowing the Gospel, the Torah, the Psalms, and the Holy Qur’an. No one among scholars can compete with him, as he comes first. He knows so much, but without wisdom; he had so much knowledge without wisdom, and then he fell! Therefore, it is not important to learn so much or to know so much, but it is important to ask for some wisdom from Allah Almighty. Even one wisdom is going to be enough for you forever, to take you to happiness and peace here and Hereafter, to our Lord’s Pleasure.
