Benefit: A Neglected Beneficial Type of Gift

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

  It has become commonplace when one is told: “I have a gift for you”, that he looks toward the hand of the gifter to see if he is carrying something or waits for him to reach in his pocket, forgetting that from types of gifts one can receive—which is indeed considered to be from the best, most honourable and beautiful types of gifts—is the matter of knowledge. None can comprehend the magnitude of this type of gift except those who know the [true] status of knowledge. Ibn al-Qayyim mentions:

((وإنما الهدية النافعة كلمة يهديها الرجل الى أخيه المسلم))
Verily the beneficial gift is a word [of truth] a man gifts to his brother in Islām.
