Basis for given wisdom

SHAFAQNA (Shia International News Association) – It is narrated from Hemad who asked Imam Sadiq (AS) about Luqman and his wisdom. Imam Sadiq (AS) replied: Luqman’s wisdom has nothing to do with wealth, family or physical attributes. He was very strong in God’s ways, he always was dignified with deep vision and thinking, fast understanding and very quick to learn, did not sleep during the day, frightened to commit sin that is why he did not used to laugh unduly and without reason, never got angry with others, did not make fun of others, when the world favoured him did not become over-joyed, never felt sorrow regarding the worldly affairs, never interfered in disputes between two people unless he established reconciliation, always used to ask about people especially poor people and spent a lot of time with scholars, he used to meet with judges and rulers, always used to seek ways of learning how to overcome his carnal desires and stay away from Satan, he used to cure his heart with thinking, never travelled from one place to another without planning and purpose, that is why he was given wisdom [1].
