“The first stage of knowledge is silence; the second is listening and memorizing; the third is applying what one learned; and the fourth is teaching and spreading the knowledge that one learned.”
—Sufyān al-Thawrī (رحمه الله )
I think brothers and sisters understand and apply this principle as best as they can. However, the 'listening and memorising' stage has an implication of understanding and Islam cannot be properly understood without knowing the Arabic language. Since a lot of people cannot understand the Arabic language this principle therefore cannot be applied in its fullest and truest sense.
