Knowledge İs Light
shakautu ila Waki` sua hifdhi
wa arshada-ni an tark al-ma`asi
wa akhbara-ni bi anna ilman nur
wa nur Allah la yu`ta al-`as
The great Imam ash-Shafi, he went to his teacher Waki`
Complaining about the weakness of his memory.
He told him, abandon rebellion, for knowledge is a light
And the light of Allah is not bestowed upon a rebel.
