Benefit: Knowledge Without Actions and Actions Without Knowledge
In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy
Likewise, when actions are without knowledge, ignorance and confusion enters the worship; such a person resembles the Christians because they (i.e. the Christians) worship Allāh upon ignorance and misguidance.1
