When you will acquired the knowledge then to keep away from the show and do not keep secret of your knowledge from the creations and by acting upon your knowledge you should continue your search for the willingness of Haq (truth ). Because the example of that learned person who will not act upon the knowledge is same as the soulless body of the person.
He told do not earn the world with the help of your knowledge because as per the saying of the Noble Prophet (Salla Allahu ta’ala ‘alayhi wa Sallam) “ It will bring disgrace by giving preference to the world than the deeds of the another world and such person’s name will be added in the list of persons who will deserve for the hell.” And he told it will be also remembered that those who will demand the another world from the affairs of this world and for this reason they will not get anything in the another world.” He told to seek legal the provisions upon getting knowledge and there is no better thing than this thing because those who will not demand the legal provisions then their prayers and deeds are not accepted by Allah. He told if you act upon all the above things then reserve all your life for the service of creations.

He told Allah did small favour for me upon my death and He ( Allah) accepted the salvation of all his disciples whose names were written in his register. He used to pray Allah to accept the wishes and desires of persons who will used to visit him for the fulfilment of their wishes and desires.
