Social Ethics » Society » Education » Wisdom » The Fruit of Humbleness
الإمام الكاظم (عليه السَّلام):
إنّ الزَّرعَ يَنبُتُ في السَّهلِ‏ولا يَنبُتُ في الصَّفا؛ فكذلكَ الحِكمَةُ تَعمُرُ في قَلبِ المُتَواضِعِ، ولا تَعمُرُ في قَلبِ المُتَكبِّرِ الجَبّارِ؛ لأنّ اللّهَ جَعلَ التَّواضُعَ آلَةَ العَقلِ، وجَعَلَ التَّكبُّرَ مِن آلَةِ الجَهلِ.
Imam al-Kaẓim (as):
A plant grows on level ground and not on the hard terrain, and similarly wisdom flourishes in the heart of the humble, and does not flourish in the heart of the haughty and overbearing, because Allah made humbleness the instrument of the intellect and haughtiness the instrument of ignorance.

الإمام الكاظم (عليه السَّلام):
لا تَمْنَحوا الجُهّالَ الحِكمَةَ فتَظْلِموها، وَ لا تَمْنَعوها أهْلَها فتَظْلِموهُم.
Imam al-Kaẓim (as):
Do not grant the ignorant ones wisdom for they will not do justice to it, and do not deprive it to those who are worthy of it for you will do injustice to them.

Imam al-Kaẓim (as):
Verily a seed grows in soft ground and does not grow on stone, in the same way that wisdom thrives in the heart of the humble and does not thrive in the heart of the proud and haughty , because Allah has made humbleness the instrument of the intellect.

الإمام الكاظم (عليه السَّلام):
إذا كانَ الجَورُ أغلَبَ مِنَ الحَقِ‏لَم يَحِلَّ لأحَدٍ أن يَظُنَّ بأحَدٍ خَيرا حتّى يَعرِفَ ذلكَ مِنهُ.

الإمام الكاظم (عليه السَّلام):
لا يَنبَغِي للرَّجُلِ أن يَدَعَ‏الطِّيبَ في كُلِّ يَومٍ، فإن لَم يَقدِرْ علَيهِ فَيَومٌ ويَومٌ لا، فإن لَم يَقدِرْ ففي كُلِّ جُمُعَةٍ و لا يَدَعْ.
Imam al-Kaẓim (as):
Man should not leave one day without perfuming himself, and if he is not able to do that, then he should perfume himself every other day, and if he cannot do that, then he should do so every Friday without fail.

Individual Ethics » Vices » Greediness » Reprehension of Greed
الإمام الكاظم (عليه السَّلام):
إيّاكَ والطَّمَعَ، وعلَيكَ باليَأسِ مِمّا في أيدِي الناسِ، وأمِتِ الطَّمَعَ مِن المَخلوقِينَ؛ فإنَّ الطَّمَعَ مِفتاحٌ لِلذُّلِّ، واختِلاسُ العَقلِ، واختِلاقُ المُرُوّاتِ، وتَدنِيسُ العِرضِ، والذَّهابُ بِالعِلمِ
Imam al-Kaẓim (as):
Imam al-Kazim (AS) said to Hashim, exhorting him, You must beware of greed, and despair of acquiring anything in the possession of others. Suppress the greed in others for verily greed is the key to disgrace, it exploits the intellect, fabricates valorous qualities for itself, tarnishes ones reputation, and does away with ones knowledge.
