Ibn Al-Mubarak on Knowledge: A man becomes ignorant when he stops seeking knowledge

Nu’aim ibn Hammad reported: Ibn Al-Mubarak, may Allah have mercy on him, said, “A man will continue to have knowledge as long as he is seeking knowledge. If he assumes that he has knowledge, then he has become ignorant.”

In another narration, it was said, “For how long will you seek knowledge?” Ibn Al-Mubarak said, “Until death, if Allah wills. Perhaps the words that will benefit me have not yet been written.”

عن نعيم بن حماد قَالَ ابْنُ الْمُبَارَكِ رحمه الله لَا يَزَالُ الْمَرْءُ عَالِمًا مَا طَلَبَ الْعِلْمَ فَإِذَا ظَنَّ أَنَّهُ قَدْ عَلِمَ فَقَدْ جَهِلَ
