How they lived: Sufyan Bin Uyainah - - knowledge

From the lives of our pious predecessors:

Sufyan Bin Uyainah said: “The first step in knowledge is to listen, then to be quiet and attentive, then to preserve it, then to put it into practice and then to spread it.”

– Abu Nu’aym, Hilyah Al-Awliya’, vol. 3, pg. 283
