Attaining knowledge

The Caliph Haroon Rashid once sent a message to Imam Malik rahmatullahi alayh requesting him to visit the palace and impart lessons of Hadith. The great Imam wrote in reply that:

"A person must seek Ilm for Ilm does not seek anyone"

The Caliph understood the implication of this and thus he travelled to Masjid an Nabawi to hear the Dars of the renowned Imam.
