Inherit From The Prophets

Whoever desires to be one who inherits from the prophets and one who reaps from their fields of cultivation, let him learn beneficial knowledge – it being knowledge of dīn – for in a ḥadīth [it is mentioned], ‘The ʿulamāʾ are the heirs of the prophets.’ Let him also attend the gatherings of ʿulamāʾ, for indeed they are meadows of Paradise.

(Ibn al-Jawzī, al-Tadhkirah fī al-Waʿẓ 55: Dār al-Maʿrifah)
