When a man dies no further reward is recorded for his actions, with three exceptions: Sadqa
which continues to be supplied, or knowledge from which benefit continues to be reaped, or the
prayers of a good son to his dead father. (Muslim).
If anyone removes (one of the) anxieties of this world from a believer, Allah تعالى will remove (one of
the) anxieties from him on the Day of Resurrection; if one smoothes the way for one who is
destitute, Allah تعالى will smooth the way for him in this world and the next; and if anyone conceals the
faults of a Muslim, Allah تعالى will conceal his faults in this world and the next. Allah تعالى helps a man as long as
he helps his brother. If anyone pursues a path in search of knowledge Allah تعالى will thereby make easy
for him a path to paradise. (Muslim).
He who goes out in search of knowledge is in Allah تعالى’s path till he returns. (Tirmidhi, Darimi)
The search of knowledge is an obligation laid on every Muslim. (Ibn Majah, Baihaqi).
The one who would have the worst position in Allah تعالى’s sight on the Day of Resurrection would be a
learned man who did not profit from his learning. (Darimi).
