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)]
