Those Mashaayikh Who Benefited Me The Most – By Ibnul Jawzi (rahimahullaah)
He [rahimahullaah] said:
I met the Mashaayikh-their circumstances were different and their stations in knowledge varied. The most beneficial of them for me in companionship was the scholar who acted upon his knowledge, even though there were others more knowledgeable than him.
