One Does Not Cease To Seek (Religious) Knowledge

Shaykhul-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah (may Allah have mercy upon him) stated:

The person does not cease to seek the knowledge (of the religion) and faith. When something from the (matters of) knowledge becomes clear to him that which was hidden from him, he follows it. This person is not (to be considered) one who wavers back and forth. Rather this person is one who is guided, one who Allah has increased in guidance.

:قال شيخ الإسلام

الإنسان لا يزال يطلب العلم والإيمان ، فإذا تبين له من العلم ما كان خافياً عليه اتبعه ، وليس هذا مذبذباً بل هذا مهتدٍ زاده الله هدى
