    Knowledge and Its Value

    Knowledge and Its Value

    The Holy Prophet [s] said: "Teachers and students both share in rewards but other people are deprived of them."

    Bihar-ul-Anwar, vol. 2, p. 25

    The Holy Prophet [s] said: "He who propagates religious affairs without having required competency does a disservice to the religion rather than serving it."

    Bihar-ul-Anwar, vol. 2, p.121

    Imam Amir ul Mu'mineen Ali [a] said: "The worth of every man is in his attainments."

    Nahjul-Balagha, saying No. 482


    The real value of a person is his knowledge (and the perfection of his attainments). His worth and position would be in accordance with the status of knowledge and attainment he holds. Eyes that are conscious of real values do not look at the face, features, tallness of stature, size or worldly pomp and position but look at the attainments of a person and assess his worth according to these attainments. The conclusion is that a man should strive to acquire distinction and knowledge.

    The worth of every person is according to the extent of his knowledge.

    Ghurar-ul-Hikam, p. 341

    The Holy Prophet [s] said: "The good of this world and the world to come is with knowledge."

    Bihar-ul-Anwar, vol.1, p. 204

    The Prophet (peace be upon him and his progeny), said: "A learned
    man among the ignorant people is like a living person among the
    dead. And everything, including the fish, the poisonous vermins, the
    wild beasts and the cattle pray for the forgiveness of the one who
    seeks knowledge. So, seek knowledge, for surely, it is a conducive
    mean between you and Allah, Most High. And surely, seeking of
    knowledge is obligatory upon every Muslim."
