Shaykh Ibn Uthaymeen was asked:
What is the optimal way to benefit from knowledge?
“The path of benefiting from the knowledge is easy. If you learn something, apply it. If you know that congregation prayer is obligatory, then pray in congregation. If you know that treating parents well is obligatory, then treat your parents well. Application is easy, however, the desire of the soul prevents it. So be stronger than the desire of your soul”.
