"O my Lord! Make me perfect in knowledge and conduct and include me among those whom You have rewarded with Your nearness." - Qur’ān (ash-Shu‘arā’, the Poets) 26:83   [Where Hazrat Ibrāhīm(عليه السلام) is praying to Allah - Src: Ch3 of Beseeching for Help, Tahir-ul-Qadri]

 "Truly, Allah does not remove Sacred Knowledge by taking it out of servants, but rather by taking back the souls of Islamic scholars [in death], until, when He has not left a single scholar, the people take the ignorant as leaders, who are asked for and who give Islamic legal opinion without knowledge, misguided and misguiding"

(Sahih Bukhari - Fath al-Bari, 1.194, hadith 100) [src: suhba.org]
