On the authority of Zayd ibn Arqam (ra) that the Messenger of Allah (saw) used to say, "O Allah, I seek refuge in you from knowledge which does not benefit, from a heart which does not feel humble, from a soul that does not feel contented and from an invocation that is not answered." (Muslim, Engl. trans. vol.4, p.1425, no.6568; and others).

How does reading these books benefit you?
