Ash-Shafi’ee on Knowledge: Religion and medicine are the main branches of knowledge

Ibn Abi Hatim reported: Ash-Shafi’ee, may Allah have mercy on him, said, “Indeed, knowledge is of two types: knowledge of the religion and knowledge of the world. The knowledge of religion is to achieve understanding (fiqh) and the knowledge of the world is medicine. Do not settle in a land in which there is no scholar to inform you about your religion, nor a doctor to inform you about your body.”

عن  بن أبي حاتم عَنِ الشَّافِعِيِّ رَحِمَهُ اللَّهُ قَالَ إِنَّمَا الْعِلْمُ عِلْمَانِ عِلْمُ الدِّينِ وَعِلْمُ الدُّنْيَا فَالْعِلْمُ الَّذِي لِلدِّينِ هُوَ الْفِقْهُ وَالْعِلْمُ الَّذِي لِلدُّنْيَا هُوَ الطِّبُّ لا تَسْكُنَنَّ بَلَدًا لا يَكُونُ فِيهِ عَالِمٌ يُفْتِيكَ عَنْ دِينِكَ وَلا طَبِيبٌ يُنْبِئُكَ عَنْ أَمْرِ بَدَنِكَ
