Knowledge not acted upon is like treasure not spent in the way of Allāh.

Ḥukm: Ḥasan to Imām al-Būṣayrī, Shaykh al-Albānī, and others

Takhrīj: Shaykh al-Albānī said regarding this Ḥadīth, “This is a Ḥasan Ḥadīth. Even though ibn Lahīʾah and Darrāj are both weak, the Ḥadīth has another part of narration connected to Abū Hurayrah as well as a supporting evidence from the narration of ibn ʿUmar in Marfūʾ form, and another one from the narration of Salmān in Mawqūf form.” See Taʾliqāt ʿalá Kitāb al-ʿĪlm #162
