عيسى (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ): خُذوا الحَقَّ مِن أهلِ الباطِلِ ، ولا تأخُذوا الباطِلَ مِن أهلِ الحَقِّ ، كونوا نُقّادَ الكَلامِ .

Take the truth even if it be from wrongdoers, but do not take falsehood even if it be from the righteous – be critics of speech.

قَلْبٌ لَيْسَ فِيْهِ شَيْ‏ءٌ مِنَ الحِكْمَةِ كَبَيْتٍ خَرِبٍ فَتَعَلَّمُوْا وَعَلِّمُوْا وَتَفَقَّهُوْا، وَلا تَمُوتُوا جُهَّالاً؛ فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ لا يَعْذِرُ عَلى الجَهْلِ

A heart with no sign of wisdom is like unto a ruined house. So, learn and teach, meditate deeply, and try not to die in ignorance, for God will not pardon people for ignorance.

Nahj al Fasahah; Tradition No. 75; Page No. 18

خَصْلَتَانِ لا تَجْتَمِعَانِ في مُنَافِقٍ: حُسْنُ سَمْتٍ، وَفِقْهٌ في الدِّيْنِ

A hypocrite is devoid of two traits: reputation and deep knowledge of religion.
Holy Prophet Muhammad al Mustafā (s.a.w.w.)

قَلِيْلُ التَّوْفِيْقِ خَيْرٌ مِنْ كَثِيْرِ العَقْلِ، وَالعَقْلُ في أمْرِ الدُّنْيَا مَضَرَّةٌ، وَالعَقْلُ في أمْرِ الدِّيْنِ مَسَرَّةٌ

A little chance (opportunity to do good deeds)is better than much intellect. Intellect is the cause of loss in worldly and that of pleasure in otherworldly affairs.
Holy Prophet Muhammad al Mustafā (s.a.w.w.)
Nahj al Fasahah; Tradition No. 91; Page No. 20&21

حِفْظُ الغُلامِ الصَّغِيْرِ كَالنَّقْشِ في الحَجَرِ، وَحِفْظُ الرَّجُلِ بَعْدَ ما يَكْبُرُ كَالْكِتابِ عَلَى المَاءِ

A Little knowledge is better than praying much. Worshipping God suffices to show one’s knowledge and selfish judgment is enough to show his ignorance. People are two groups: the faithful and the ignorant. Do not annoy the former and do not be a company to the latter.
Holy Prophet Muhammad al Mustafā (s.a.w.w.)

العِلْمُ خَيْرٌ مِنَ العَمَلِ، وَمِلاكُ الدِّينِ الوَرَعُ، وَالعَالِمُ مَنْ يَعْمَلُ

Knowledge is superior to deed, religion is founded on abstinence, and a (true) scholar is he who practices what he knows.

العِلْمُ مِيْرَاثِي وَمِيْرَاثُ الأنْبِيَاءِ مِنْ قَبْلِي

Nahj al Fasahah; Tradition No. 1165; Page No. 166

العِلْمُ حَيَاةُ الإسْلامِ وَعِمَادُ الإيمَانِ، وَمَنْ عَلِمَ عِلْمَاً أتَمَّ اللَّهُ لَهُ أجْرَهُ، وَمَنْ تَعَلَّمَ فَعَمِلَ عَلَّمَهُ اللَّهُ مَا لَمْ يَعْلَمْ

Knowledge is the spirit of Islam and the pillar of faith, and God will give perfect reward to s(he) who acquires some sort of knowledge, and if s(he) happens to practice it, He will let him\her know what s(he)knows not.
Holy Prophet Muhammad al Mustafā (s.a.w.w.)
Nahj al Fasahah; Tradition No. 1166; Page No. 166

العِلْمُ خَزَائِنُ وَمِفْتَاحُهَا السُّؤَالُ؛ فَسَلُوْا يَرْحَمكُمُ اللَّهُ فَاِنَّهُ يُوجِرُ فِيْهِ أرْبَعَة: السَّائِلَ وَالمُعَلِّمَ وَالمُسْتَمِعَ وَالُمحِبَّ لَهُمْ

Knowledge is treasures, and the key to them is asking. So, question to gain God’s Mercy, for God rewards four groups in so far as knowledge is concerned: seekers of knowledge, teachers, listeners, and those who love the first three groups.

Nahj al Fasahah; Tradition No. 1169; Page No. 167

عِلْمٌ لا يَنْفَعُ كَكَنْزٍ لا يُنْفَقُ مِنْهُ، وَعَلى كُلِّ شَي‏ءٍ زَكَاةٌ؛ وَزَكَاةُ الجَسَدِ الصِّيَامُ

Knowledge without use is like unto untouched treasure. For everything there is a poor-rate, and for the body, fasting.

Nahj al Fasahah; Tradition No. 1170; Page No. 167

اِرْمُوا وَارْكَبُوا؛ وَأَنْ تَرْمُوا أَحَبُّ اِلَىَّ مِنْ أَنْ تَرْكَبُوا؛ كُلُّ شَيْى‏ءٍ يَلْهُو بِهِ الرَّجُلُ باطِلٌ اِلاّ رَمْى الرَّجُلِ بِقَوْسِهِ؛ أَوْ تَأْديبِهِ فَرَسَهُ؛ أَوْ مُلاعَبَتِهِ امْرَأَتَهُ، فَاِنَّهُنَّ مِنَ الْحَقِّ، وَمَنْ تَرَكَ الرَّمْىَ بَعْدَ مَا عَلِمَهُ فَقَدْ كَفَرَ الَّذِي عَلَّمَهُ

Learn shooting and horsemanship, but I love you shoot more than ride on horseback. Whatever makes you busy is idle, save shooting an arrow, training your horse or playing with your wives. All these are among your rights, and whoever abandons shooting after having learned it, is guilty of ingratitude to his teacher.
Holy Prophet Muhammad al Mustafā (s.a.w.w.)
Nahj al Fasahah; Tradition No. 1173; Page No. 168

تَعَلَّمُوْا ما شِئْتُمْ أَنْ تَعْلَمُوا؛ فَلَنْ يَنْفَعَكُمُ اللَّهُ بِالعِلْمِ حَتَّى تَعْمَلُوا بِمَا تَعْلَمُونَ

Learn whatever you like, for God will not let you avail yourself of your knowledge unless you put it to practice.
Holy Prophet Muhammad al Mustafā (s.a.w.w.)
Nahj al Fasahah; Tradition No. 1174; Page No. 168&169

مَثَلُ الَّذِي يَتَعَلَّمُ العِلْمَ في صِغَرِهِ كَالنَّقْشِ عَلى الحَجَرِ؛ وَمَثَلُ الَّذِي يَتَعَلَّمُ العِلْمَ في كِبَرِهِ كَالَّذِي يَكْتُبُ عَلَى المَاءِ

Learning in childhood is like unto carving (something) on stone, and learning in old age resembles writing on water.
Holy Prophet Muhammad al Mustafā (s.a.w.w.)
Nahj al Fasahah; Tradition No. 1175; Page No. 169

مِنَ الصَّدَقَةِ أنْ يُعَلَّمَ الرَّجُلُ العِلْمَ؛ فَيَعْمَلَ بِهِ ويُعَلِّمَهُ

Learning knowledge, putting it to practice and teaching it to others is a form of charity for man.
