Statements from the lecture:
“Adding knowledge to actions shows that Allāh’s favour is upon a person!”
“The Salaf used to say, ‘Knowledge is not that people relate a lot, knowledge is sought in order to fear Allāh.'”
“The salaf used to say ‘ the one who does not act upon knowledge is ignorant.'”
“Fuḍayl Ibn Iyāḍ said ‘The Scholar remains to be ignorant until he acts upon his knowledge.'”
“The two feet will not proceed on Yawm al-Qiyyammah until they are asked about four things, one of those things is ‘knowledge’ and what he did with it. Why did he learn? Was his purpose to learn and act upon knowledge?”

Also the Rubūbīyyah (Oneness of Allāh in Lordship) of Allāh and that he agrees with Ahl al-Sunnah concerning Allāh being worship alone (‘Uboodiyyah).
