قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ طَلَبُ الْعِلْمِ فَرِيضَةٌ عَلَى كُلِّ مُسْلِمٍ

The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Seeking knowledge is an obligation upon every Muslim.” Sunan Ibn Mājah 224

Summary of the address below:
– It is obligatory to gain knowledge and it should not be taken lightly. 
– Never stop learning
– Never think you have become a scholar 
– It is not enough to gain knowledge, but understanding the wisdom related to the gained knowledge is important as well
– Dive deep
– Seek beneficial knowledge which leads to action, (People listen to Mushairas, but gain no benefit)

اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ عِلْمٍ لَا يَنْفَعُ وَمِنْ قَلْبٍ لَا يَخْشَعُ وَمِنْ نَفْسٍ ‏لَا تَشْبَعُ ‏ ‏وَمِنْ دَعْوَةٍ لَا يُسْتَجَابُ لَهَا‏
“O Allah, I seek refuge in You from knowledge which does not benefit, from a heart that does not entertain the fear (of Allah), from a soul that is not satisfied (not referring to knowledge) and the supplication that is not answered.” Prayer of the Holy Prophetsa
