by Abu Abdullah Ibne Ismail
“An individual can only practice something once he becomes aware of it. For example one cannot fulfil the obligation of Zakaah if he is not aware of the method of giving Zakaah. Likewise one cannot perform Hajj unless he has knowledge of the essential rituals of Hajj.
Thus for a person to advance in the field of action and practice, he needs to first advance in the field of knowledge.
