Sharh al-‘Aqeedah al-Waasitiyyah – v2, p148

Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen said:

If a person makes the intention to seek knowledge, and he intends [by doing so] to benefit the people with his knowledge and defend the Sunnah of the Messenger ﷺ and propagate the religion of Allaah, and [if] he is then unable to do that because – for example he has died whilst he was seeking [knowledge], then the reward for what he intended and strived towards will be recorded for him [even though he did not attain his goal].

He is a graduate of the Islaamic University of Madeenah, having graduated from the Institute of Arabic Language, and later the Faculty of Sharee'ah in 2004. He currently resides in Birmingham, UK.
