Prophet Isa (a.s.) when asked about the traits of the fool said, ‘He is one who is proud of himself and his own opinion, who sees all good traits as coming from himself and sees no one better than himself, who has decided that all rights are his and others have no right over him, so this is the fool for whom there is no cure for his disease.’

الإمامُ‏زينُ‏العابدينَ (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ) ـ في وصيّتهِ لابنهِ الباقرِ (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ) ـ : إيّاكَ يا بُنيَّ أنْ تُصاحِبَ الأحمَقَ أو تُخالِطَهُ ، واهْجُرْهُ ولا تُحادِثْهُ ؛ فإنّ الأحمَقَ هُجْنَةٌ غائباً كانَ أو حاضِراً ، إنْ تَكَلَّم فضَحَهُ حُمقُهُ ، وإنْ سَكَتَ قَصُرَ بهِ عِيُّهُ ، وإنْ عَمِلَ أفسَدَ ، وإنِ اسْتُرعِيَ أضاعَ . لا عِلمُهُ مِن نَفْسِهِ يُغْنيهِ ، ولا عِلمُ غَيرهِ يَنْفَعُهُ ، ولا يُطيعُ ناصِحَهُ ، ولا يَستريحُ مقارِنُهُ ، تَوَدُّ اُمُّهُ أنّها ثَكَلَتْهُ ، وامْرَأتُهُ أنّها فَقَدتْهُ ، وجارُهُ بُعدَ دارِهِ ، وجَليسُهُ الوَحْدةَ مِن مُجالَسَتِهِ . إنْ كانَ أصْغَرَ مَن في المَجلِسِ أعْنى مَن فَوقَهُ ، وإنْ كانَ أكْبَرَهُم أفْسَدَ مَن دُونَهُ.

Imam Zayn al-Abidin (AS) in his counsel to his son al-Baqir (AS) said, ‘My son, beware of taking a fool as a companion or mingling with him; keep away from him and do not converse with him for verily the fool is a lowly person whether he is absent or present. When he talks he exposes his foolishness and when he is silent he displays his inability to express himself. If he acts he spoils and when he is given responsibility he fails it. His own knowledge does not suffice him and others’ knowledge is of no benefit to him, he does not follow the one who advises him, his associates do not find rest [from him], his mother wishes to be bereaved of him, his wife wishes to lose him, his neighbour wishes to live far from him and the one who sits with him would rather be absent from his company. If he is the lowest [in status] in the gathering he abases those above him and if he is the highest of them he denigrates the others.’
Imām `Alī ibn Husayn (a.s.)
Amali al-Tusi, p. 613, no. 1278; Mizan ul Hikmah, page No. 334

الإمامُ الصّادقُ (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ) : مَن لَم يَجْتَنِبْ مُصادقَةَ الأحمَقِ أوْشَكَ أنْ يَتَخلّقَ بأخْلاقِهِ.

The one who does not refrain from the friendship of a fool will soon adopt his character.
Imām Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sādiq (a.s.)
Amali al-Saduq, p. 222, no. 1; Mizan ul Hikmah, page No. 335

الإمامُ عليٌّ (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ) : أحمَقُ النّاسِ مَن ظَنَّ أنّهُ أعْقَلُ النّاسِ.

The most foolish of people is the one who thinks that he is the most intelligent.
Amir al-Mu'minin Imām ‘Alī ibn Abī Tālib (a.s.)
Ghurar al-Hikam, no. 3089; Mizan ul Hikmah, page No. 335

الإمامُ عليٌّ (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ) : أحمَقُ النّاسِ مَن يَمْنَعُ البِرَّ ويَطْلُبُ الشُّكْرَ ، ويَفعَلُ الشَّرَّ ويَتَوقّعُ ثَوابَ الخَيرِ.

The most foolish of people is the one who prevents goodness but expects thanks, and he commits evil and expects the reward of good.
