  • Allah surely hates the oppressive wealthy man.
  • Certainly, knowledge is a lock and its key is the question.
  • He who treats people kindly will be accepted as arbiter.
  • Ignorance is in three (things): Arrogance, the intensity of dispute, and the ignorance about God.
  • Intellect is the guide of the believer.
  • Life is to rent a house and buy bread.
  • Some manners of the ignorant are: the answer before he hears, the opposition before he understands, and the judgement with what he does not know.
  • The perfection of intellect is in three (things): humbleness for God, good certainty, and silence except for good.
  • When the believer becomes angry, his anger should not take him out of the truth; and when he becomes satisfied, his satisfaction should not bring him into falsehood.
  • Whoever attacks a matter without knowledge cuts off his own nose.
