Are knowledge and righteousness prone to decline or not?

SHAFAQNA – Knowledge is advantage, but it is not an inherent advantage of the human being, and is prone to decline. The belief is advantage, but it is prone to decline. The piety is advantage, but it is prone to decline. Also all the human virtues because they are prone to decline, they cannot be inherent advantages of one human being to another. On the other hand corruption, meaning having no fear of the condition the soul can adopt towards sins and becoming rebellious, is also not inherent in the human being.

According to our interpretation, it is adventitious, and because of that, is prone to decline; and an absolute decree of badness cannot be issued for a person who has this ugly spiritual condition. Therefore, the human being must not prefer himself/herself to anyone else, in order to avoid arrogance of the soul. The above-mentioned advantages are prone to decline and cannot cause the human being to have inherent advantages over another one, because they can be separated from human being’s soul [1].
