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

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.
