Ash Shaykh Al Allamah Yahya Ibn Ali Al Hajooree Hafithahullah said:

فهو والله داء عضال ومرض قتّال لا يبرأ منه إلا من أقبل على علم كتاب الله وسنة رسوله بكل محبة ورغبة

For it (ignorance) by Allah is a chronical disease and a deadly sickness which he doesn’t become free from it except with acceptance upon knowledge of the book of Allah and the Sunnah of his Messenger with complete love and desire!

مع بذل وسعه في الاجتهاد من أجل تحصيله،

Whilst excreting his capability in striving due to its attainment [knowledge]

والحرص الكامل على صرف الأوقات والقوى لنيله،

And full eagerness upon withdrawing the time and the strength to achieve it

واللجوء إلى الله بدعائه وطلب فتحه وتوفيقه ،

And the returning to Allah with invoking him and seeking his success

ومجالسة أهله والرحلة إليهم والاستفادة منهم،

And sitting with its people, travelling to them and benefiting from them
