The Stages of Knowledge

Al-Mahdee Abu ‘Abdullaah reported that he once heard Sufyaan Ath-Thawree [rahimahullaah] say,

The first stage of knowledge is silence;

the second is listening and memorizing;

the third is applying what one learned;

and the fourth is teaching and spreading the knowledge that one learned.”
