Ad Diyaa Al Maqdisee advised his student when he wanted to travel for knowledge:

“Read the Quran much and do not leave it off for that which you seek is made easier for you in accordance to how much you read.”

His student replied,

“I seen that and experienced it a lot. When I would read much, listening to and writing a lot of Hadeeth, would be made easier for me, and if I did not read, it would not be made easy for me” End translation. [Thayl At Tabaqaat 3/205]
