منهومان لا يشبعان منهوم في علم لا يشبع، ومنهوم في دنيا لا يشبع
Recorded by Imam Hakim (rahimahullah) on the authority of Sayyiduna Anas (radiyallahu ‘anhu): The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “The seekers of two concerns are never satisfied: the seeker of knowledge and the seeker of the world.”
