This book offers 24 pieces of valuable advice to seekers of knowledge.


  • Touches on all aspects of life, from material wealth and the love of this life, to Islamic etiquette and acquiring knowledge.
  • Illustrates his ideas throughout with relevant quotations from the Qur'an and Hadith, as well as poetry and logical examples.
  • A clear analogy which demonstrates the need to cleanse ourselves of bad manners so that we can develop good characteristics.
  • A powerful reminder of the importance of constantly identifying ourselves with the next life.

To counsel others is an easy matter, the difficulty is accepting advice since it is bitter for those who follow their own inclination and desire. They love the forbidden from the depth of their hearts.

This is more applicable to seekers of knowledge and students of learning, those of them who are busy with the benefits of this world. They believe that mere abstract knowledge, without proper action, will rescue them. This is the belief of the philosophers.

Praise and Glory be to Allah, the Greatest of all. They do not know this much, that when they acquire knowledge, if they do not work according to it, the indictment against them is certain.

The Messenger of Allah said "The person most severely punished on the Day of Judgement is the learned one who did not follow Allah's guidance and did not benefit from his knowledge."
