Without a doubt as humans, we tend to lack many of the qualities by which we can appreciate knowledge and understand it's benefits. The most fundamental of these qualities, that many of us are guilty of not practicing many a time, is that of good manners. Only with good manners, do all the pieces fall into place.

Yusuf ibn al-Hunain said:
"With good manners you undersatnd the knowledge, and with knowledge your actions are corrected. And with actions wisdom is obtained. And with wisdom you understand Zuhd(abstinence) and are granted the benefit of it. And with Zuhd comes abandoning the world and with abandoning the world comes the longing for the Hereafter. And with the longing for the Hereafter the pleasure of Allaah, Azzawajjal is obtained."
