SHAFAQNA – It is narrated from Imam Ali (AS) who said: Knowledge is life and belief leads to salvation. A learned/knowledgeable person is alive even when he/she is passed away. Knowledge revives the human being’s soul and kills ignorance. Knowledge is superior to all other virtues . In another narration, Imam Ali (AS) said: Each vessel will be filled by pouring something in it except the vessel of knowledge which whatever you place in it; its capacity will increase . It is also narrated from Imam Ali (AS) who said: The person who is dominated by negligence, his/her heart and soul will also dye. Negligence is enough for being misled and taking away the human being’s insight/vision (the power of perception and discernment) .
