Shaykh Saalih ibn al-Fawzaan al-Fawzaan (hafidhahullaah) comments in his explanation of al-Usool ith-Thalaathah:

والعلم : هو إدراك الشيء على ما هو عليه في الواقع أو تصور الشيء على طبق الواقع

“And al-‘ilm (knowledge) is to comprehend something as it actually is or to perceive something in accordance with how it actually is.

و إدراك الشيء على خلاف ما هو عليه في الواقع أو تصور الشيء على خلاف الواقع فهو الجهل وهو ضد العلم

And to comprehend something in a manner contrary to how it actually is in reality or to perceive something contrary to reality of it – this is al-jahl (ignorance) and it is the opposite of al-‘ilm (knowledge).”

Source: Shaykh Saalih ibn al-Fawzaan al-Fawzaan (hafidhahullaah), in his Sharh al-Usool ith-Thalaathah, while explaining the statement “اعْلَمْ رَحِمَكَ اللهُ” (Know, may Allaah have mercy upon you).
