رسول الله (صلى الله عليه وآله): من قال: أنا عالم فهو جاهل

💫 The Noble Prophet, peace be upon him and his family, said, “Whoever claims to be a scholar is ignorant.”

☝️Because such a person:
– Refuses to acknowledge others as #scholars to benefit from them.
– Does not #express_ignorance before God to receive Divine Knowledge.

💫 Although Allah Almighty commands His Prophet, saying, “And say: ‘O my Lord, increase me in knowledge.'” وَقُل رَّبِّ زِدْنِي عِلْمًا

However, this attitude leads to other #ethical_vices, such as #belittling and #humiliating others, especially those lower in status.

💫 From this point of view, Imam Baqir, peace be upon him, said, “No one can be considered a scholar unless they refrain from belittling those lower than themselves.”
