“Acquire knowledge and impart it to the people.” – Al-Tirmidhi, Hadith 107

The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: “If anyone travels on a road in search of knowledge, God will cause him to travel on one of the roads of Paradise. The angels will lower their wings in their great pleasure with one who seeks knowledge. The inhabitants of the heavens and the Earth and (even) the fish in the deep waters will ask forgiveness for the learned man. The superiority of the learned over the devout is like that of the moon, on the night when it is full, over the rest of the stars. The learned are the heirs of the Prophets, and the Prophets leave (no monetary inheritance), they leave only knowledge, and he who takes it takes an abundant portion. – Sunan of Abu-Dawood, Hadith 1631

    good job! there are also other hadith regarding knowledge. this is among my favourite; Safwan Ibn ‘Assal said: I came to the Prophet(peace be upon him) while he was reclining on a red coat(in the mosque) & I said to him :”O Messenger of Allah! I came to seek knowledge. He said:”Welcome knowledge seeker! Indeed the angels surround the knowledge seeker with their wings, then pile up on top of each other until they reach the lower heaven out of their love of what he is seeking.”
