The light of wisdom

SHAFAQNA – Imam Ali (AS) said: I am surpried at seeing people at night when the food is brought to them bother themselves to turn a light in order to see what they are putting in their stomachs; but at the time of feeding their souls, do not turn the light of wisdom with the rays of knowledge so that to be safe from the negative effects of ignorance and the effects which exist in their beliefs and actions [1].
