Shaykh Muhammad ibn Saalih al Uthaymeen rahimahullaah a ra li dn

Therefore it is a must that (he) act upon what he has knowledge of
because if he does not act upon his knowledge he becomes from the first
of those who will be burned by the Fire on the Day of Resurrection:
Cho nn, bt buc (anh ta) phi thc hnh/hnh ng da trn nhng kin thc m anh ta
c c bi v nu anh ta khng thc hnh da trn kin thc ca anh ta, anh ta tr thnh

The scholar who does not act upon his knowledge
Will be punished before the worshippers of idols
Ngi hc gi khng hnh ng da trn kin thc ca anh ta

This is one aspect - if he does not act upon his knowledge, it will result
in disappointment regarding the knowledge, and no barakah (blessing),
and nisyaan (forgetfulness) of the knowledge And therefore it was
reported from Imaam Alee radi Allaahu anhu that he said: Knowledge
calls out for action, so either it is responded to or else it departs
So what is it that departs? Knowledge, and this is something clear
because if you act upon (your) knowledge, you will remember it each
time you act.

And I will strike an example for you that of a man who knows the
description of the salaat (prayer) from the Sunnah. So he begins to act

upon it whenever he prays. Will he forget what he has learned? He will


not forget because he keeps on repeating it. However if he were to leave
off acting upon it, he would forget.
V ti ly mt v d cho cc bn rng c mt ngi n ng bit c

anh ta t b vic thc hnh ny, anh ta s qun.
And this is an evidence which can be perceived (by us) that acting
upon knowledge necessitates firmness upon (that) knowledge, and that
(the person) does not forget it.
V y l mt bng chng chng ta c th lnh hi c rng hnh ng da

(Sharh hilyah taalib il ilm p24-25 of Shaykh Muhammad ibn Saalih al
Uthaymeen rahimahullaah)
