Sufyan on Knowledge: The purpose of learning is to become conscious of Allah and purify the heart

Ibn Abdul Barr reported: Sufyan Ath-Thawri, may Allah have mercy on him, said, “Verily, knowledge is only studied to become mindful of Allah. Verily, knowledge is only favored over other virtues because one is made conscious of Allah by it.”
Source: Jāmiʻ Bayān al-ʻIlm 759
Al-Ghazali said, “Seeking knowledge is an act of worship of the soul. In the language of the law, it is an act of worship of the heart. It will not be sound unless the heart it purified from evil behaviors and foul characteristics.”

عن ابن عبد البر قَالَ سُفْيَانُ الثَّوْرِيُّ رحمه الله إِنَّمَا يُتَعَلَّمُ الْعِلْمُ لِيُتَّقَى اللَّهُ بِهِ وَإِنَّمَا فُضِّلَ الْعِلْمُ عَلَى غَيْرِهِ لأَنَّهُ يُتَّقَى اللَّهُ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ بِهِ
759 جامع بيان العلم وفضله لابن عبد البر
وقال الغزالي العلم عبادة النَّفس وفي لسان الشَّرع عبادة القلب فلا يصح إلاَّ بطهارة القلب عن خبائث الأخلاق وأنجاس الصِّفات
