What is the connection between arrogance and wisdom?


SHAFAQNA – It is narrated from Imam Baqer (AS) who said: No amount of arrogance enters the human being’s heart, unless to the same amount, whether more or less, is deducted from his/her wisdom [1]. Arrogance is the result of another dangerous illness which is called selfishness (egotism), and this is caused by comparing oneself constantly to other people. Therefore, arrogance (Takabbor) is when a person feels and believes that he/she is higher and better than others [2].
