Gaining Knowledge or Going Ribat?

Hibbaan Ibn Musa said:

“When went out for ribat to Syria with Ibn Al-Mubarak. When he saw how the people were worshiping, making battle and sending out expeditions every day, he turned to me and said, ‘We belong to Allaah and to Him we shall return. Alas for the part of our lives that we have spent, and for the nights and days that we whiled away in acquiring knowledge of the legal intent of divorce, leaving aside the open doors of Jannah here.‘ “
