Luqman Al Hakim’s advice regarding the Scholars

Could you provide a reference for this narration:

Luqman Al Hakim advised his son:

“O my son! Sit with the scholars, crowd them at the knees [sit close to them]! For indeed Allah Ta’ala revives hearts with the nur of words of wisdom just as He gives life to barren land after the downpour of rain”


Imam Malik (rahimahullah) and others have recorded this narration.

(Muwatta Imam Malik, Hadith: 2859. Also see: Kitabuz Zuhd of Imam ‘Abdullah ibn Al Mubarak, Hadith: 1387, Targhib, vol. 1 pg. 112 and Awjazul Masalik, Hadith: 1828)

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
