al-Bidaayah wan-Nihaayah – v9, p255

al-Imaam Mujaahid ibn Jabar (rahima-hullaah) said:

The jurist (الفقيه) is one who fears Allaah, even if his knowledge is little.

And the ignoramus[1] (الجاهل) is one who sins against [the command of] Allaah, even if his knowledge is a lot.

Translator’s note:
[1] Because his knowledge has not benefited him
