What are the benefits of asking questions in the religion?


بم أدركت العلم ؟ قال : أدركت العلم بلسان سؤول ،وقلب عقول ، وبدن غير ملول

Ibn Abbas رضي الله عنهما was asked:

How did you gain your knowledge?

He said, “I gained it with an inquisitive tongue [i.e. a tongue that asks questions], an understanding heart, and a body that doesn’t get tired.

[Reported by al-Imam Ahmad in his book the virtues of the Sahaabahs (970/2)]
