Student of knowledge

It is reported in Tirmidhi amongst other compilations, that Abu Darda said,

“I heard the Messenger of Allah (saw) say: ‘Whoever travels a path seeking sacred knowledge, Allah (swt) will place him on a path leading to Paradise. The angels lower their wings for the student of sacred knowledge, pleased with what he is doing. The creatures in the heavens and earth seek forgiveness for the student of sacred knowledge, even the fish in the water. The superiority of the religious scholar over the devout worshipper is like the superiority of the full moon over other heavenly bodies. The religious scholars are the heirs of the prophets. The prophets leave no money as a bequest, rather they leave knowledge. Whoever seizes it has taken a bountiful share.’”
