It is reported that Abû Al-Dardâ` –(Allâh be pleased with him) used to say:
“Learn knowledge before it is taken way, & it is taken away by its people (scholars) being taken away. The scholar & the student are partners in good & there is NO good in any other people. The richest of men is the knowledgeable man whose knowledge is needed: he benefits those who need him & if done without, he benefits himself with the knowledge Allâh ‘azza wa jalla has placed with him.

"O student! If you want knowledge from its sources then you should stick to the great scholars [Kibâr-ul-'ulama]: those who have gray beards & weak bodies & have lost their power in [pursuit of] knowledge & educating. Stick to them before they disappear & take from their treasure before they take it with them. One misses the full-moon in the dark night."
(al-'Awa'iq, p. 26)
