One who is shy will never gain knowledge

Reference: al-Bukhaaree; Mabaahith fee Ahkaam al-Fatwa – Page 25

The Messenger of Allaah (sal-Allaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

«One who is shy will never gain knowledge, nor one who is proud»

Translator’s note: What is implied here, is one who is shy of asking questions, wAllaahu A’lam!
