So you want to be a student of knowledge?


Ibn Aqeel said: “I try my very best to limit the time I spend eating, to such an extent that I choose dry biscuit and a sip of water over eating bread, because of the difference in chewing [time] between the two, so as to save my time for reading or writing down some useful ideas. The best thing for the wise man to save is time.”

Ibn Abi Ya’la, Tabaqaat al-Hanaabilah (1/145)
