How to Combine Between Memorizing the Quran, Seeking Knowledge, and Da’wah – Shaikh Ibn ul-‘Uthaymeen

Question: How is it possible to combine between memorizing the Book of Allah, seeking knowledge, and da’wah?

Answer: “Each of these is from the other. They do not contradict. However, as long as a person is young, then memorization is more deserving. This is because the young one is quick in memorizing and [his] forgetfulness is little. He does not have large responsibilities. Then, every time a person grows [in age] he expands in the issues of knowledge and in da’wah to Allah, the Exalted”.

[Liqaa al-Baab al-Maftooh no. 210]
