Is this a Hadith?

قليل من التوفيق خير من كثير من العلم

 

Answer

‘Allamah Subki and ‘Allamah ‘Iraqi (rahimahumallah) state that they have not come across any basis for this as a Hadith.

To be given a little ability to do [good deeds] is better than having a lot of knowledge.

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
