The Vastness of the Earth

Imam Malik {May Allah have mercy upon him} said:

“The limits and vastness of the earth are many and plentiful, and it is not possible for anyone to gather all of the sayings of the scholars {in regard to law, etc}, and one who even tries to claim this; then his lie is not hidden to anybody.”

~ Recorded in al-Bahr al-Muhit by Abu Hayyan al-Gharnati, which is a linguistic commentary on the Quran primarily from the standpoint of Arabic grammar and rhetoric. Volume 4 pg. 473
