Wisdom from Prophets

Acquire knowledge, because one who gains it for the sake of Lord, performs an act of piety; who talks about it praises the Lord; who seeks it, adores God; who spends life in light of it, bestows alms; and who passes on it to others, performs an act of devotion to God. Knowledge helps to distinguish what is forbidden from what is not; lights the way to Heaven; it is our friend in the desert, our companion in solitude, when bereft of friends; it guides us to happiness; it sustains us in misery; it is our beauty and grace in the company of friends; it serves as an armor against our enemies. With knowledge, the creation of God rises to the heights of goodness and nobility, controls the affairs of this world and attains the perfection in happiness hereafter

–Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)

Wisdom from Quran

They say: "(Allah) hath begotten a son!" - Glory be to Him! He is self- sufficient! His are all things in the heavens and on earth! No warrant have ye for this! say ye about Allah what ye know not (10:68)

Wisdom from Imams

Have you fully realised what Islam is? It is a religion founded on truth. It is such a fountainhead of learning that from it flow out several streams of wisdom and knowledge. It is such a lamp that from it several lamps will be lighted. It is a tall beacon lighting the path to Allah. It is a set of principles and beliefs which will satisfy every seeker of truth and reality.

Know you all that Allah has made Islam the most sublime path towards His Supreme Pleasure and the highest standard of His Worship and Obedience. He has favoured it with noble precepts, exalted principles, undoubtable arguments, unchallengeable supremacy and undeniable wisdom.

It is up to you to maintain the eminence and dignity granted to it by the Lord, to follow it sincerely, to do justice to its articles of faith and belief, to implicitly obey its tenets and orders, and to give it the proper place in your lives- Imam Ali (AS)
