Knowledge requires practice

Knowledge requires practice. If one does not practise on his knowledge it will leave him. The example of this is that of a person on camel-back who goes to visit someone and calls out for him. If the owner of the house does respond to his call he leaves.

`Ilm (knowledge) is noor (light) and jahaalat (ignorance) is zulmat (darkness). Therefore, when someone understands something he says, “I have got some light. I have come out from darkness into light.”
