"Ilm (knowledge) is not memorization of lines from a book or storing mass information in memory, a computer can hold masses and masses of information, rather knowledge is internalization of the sacred texts, knowledge is presence of Rūh (soul) and Hāl (state), information that is not internalized and practiced is just information, not real Ilm and has no benefit, the whole purpose is to be transformed."
