Gatherings superior to one another

Narrated by 'Abdu'llah bin 'Amru:

The Prophet of God passed by two gatherings in his Mosque, and said,
'Both of them are(working) for good, but one of them is superior to the other. As to the one, they call upon God and eagerly(strive) after Him; so if He please, He may give them, if He please He may withhold(His possession) from them; and as to the other, they learn wisdom or knowledge, and teach the ignorant; so these are superior; and I am only raised up as teacher.'
