Luqman on Life: Knowledge gives life to hearts, like rain on earth

Malik reported: Luqman al-Hakim, upon him be peace, instructed his son, saying, “O my son, sit with the scholars and keep close to them. Allah gives life to the hearts with the light of wisdom, just as he gives life to the dead earth with rain from the sky.

عَنْ مَالِك أَنَّ لُقْمَانَ الْحَكِيمَ عليه السلام أَوْصَى ابْنَهُ فَقَالَ يَا بُنَيَّ جَالِسْ الْعُلَمَاءَ وَزَاحِمْهُمْ بِرُكْبَتَيْكَ فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ يُحْيِي الْقُلُوبَ بِنُورِ الْحِكْمَةِ كَمَا يُحْيِي اللَّهُ الْأَرْضَ الْمَيْتَةَ بِوَابِلِ السَّمَاءِ
