Knowledge is better than Wealth because of the following seven reasons:

  1. Knowledge is inheritance of Prophets while wealth is inheritance of Firauns (Pharaohs).
  2. Knowledge does not diminish (rather increases) with spending, while wealth diminishes with spending.
  3. Wealth requires to be protected, while knowledge protects its owner.
  4. Knowledge will enter the Kafan (Shroud) while wealth will be prevented from doing so.
  5. Wealth reaches both believers and unbelievers (Kafir), while knowledge is reserved only for those who are worthy of it.
  6. Knowledge will facilitate passing over the Seraat (Bridge over Hell) while wealth will pore hurdles.
  7. People are always in need of scholars while they might not be in need of those possessing wealth.
  8. The only limit set to the acquisition of knowledge in Islam is that Muslims should seek useful knowledge. Our great Prophet (SAW) is reported as having said:

    My Lord, save me from the useless knowledge.

    Any knowledge helping man in performing his God assigned role in this world is useful, other than that is considered useless knowledge.
