Intentions & Seeking Knowledge

Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem

Hadhrat Abdullah Ibn Mas’ood (Radhiyallahu 'anhu) would advise his students:

"If your intention is one of these three, do not seek knowledge :

1.)    To shame the ignorant
2.)    To argue with the Fuqaha (Scholars)
3.)    To cause people to turn their faces in your direction

Intend with your actions and words that which is with Allah Ta’ala, 
for indeed that which is with Allah Ta’ala shall remain, 
and everything else shall perish.”
