Imaam Ahmad ibn Hanbal on the intention behind learning

And Imaam Ahmad said: Al ‘ilm (knowledge) – nothing is equal to it, for the person who makes his niyyah  correct.

They said: How is the niyyah made correct, O Aboo ‘Abdillaah?

He said: (The person) has as his intention removing ignorance from himself and from other than himself.

(Sharh hilyah taalib il ‘ilm p13 of Shaykh Muhammad ibn Saalih al ‘Uthaymeen rahimahullaah, translated by Nasser ibn Najam)
