“Seek To Write Your Way Out Of Everything”

In one Hadith recorded in Mustadrak-e-Haakim, an explicit and clear order
of writing is given. The words are "Tie down knowledge", the Sahaabi enquired,
"What is tying down knowledge?" The Prophet (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam)
replied, "It's writing." (Mustadrak vol. 1 pg. 106)
From an authentic, recorded tradition of the Prophet. I love the phrase ‘tie down knowledge’ in its sense of anchoring knowledge. That really appeals to someone such as I, who can express himself more eloquently in a written format than face–to–face. Tying down knowledge.
