Some time ago, I heard a quote that someone said came from the Qur'an. I have not been able to find it, and I would like to know if it is a real quote. It went something like this: "If a person gains knowledge and does not pass it on, then the knowledge is like a seed that is not planted". I'm not sure if that is exactly right, I am sorry if I am misquoting the Qur'an. Does anybody recognize this?

  • Closest ayah I can think of is Al-Baqarah 261 but that's about wealth rather than knowledge. – goldPseudo Apr 18 '17 at 6:06
  • It seems to me that here a mix between two different verses happened. – Medi1Saif Apr 21 '17 at 17:09
