As a Shia Muslim we know that:
— The most complete gift of God is a life based on knowledge.
–The innumerable fools have made the learned very scarce.
–The learned man understands the ignorant for he was once ignorant for he was once ignorant himself.
–The ignorant man does not understand the learned for he has never been learned himself.
–Knowledge gives life to the soul.
–To respect the learned is to respect God.
–Knowledge creates fear of God.
