Education And Learning

Education and learning-التعليم والتعلّم

1. The most helpful thing in purifying the intellect is education.

1ـ أعْوَنُ الأشْياءِ عَلى تَزْكِيَةِ العَقْلِ التَّعْليمُ.

2. Learn and you will become knowledgeable, honour and you will be honoured.

2ـ تَعَلَّمْ تَعْلَمْ، وتَـكَرَّمْ تُـكْرَمْ.

3. Be humble in front of the one from whom you gain knowledge and the one whom you teach; and do not be from among the haughty scholars, lest your ignorance rises alongside you knowledge.

3ـ تَواضَعُوا لِمَنْ تَتَعَلَّمُوا مِنْهُ العِلْمَ، ولِمَنْ تُعَلِّمُونَهُ، ولاتَـكُونُوا مِنْ جَبابِرَةِ العُلَماءِ، فَلا يَقُومَ جَهْلُكُمْ بِعِلْمِكُمْ.

4. Acquire knowledge, for indeed if you are wealthy it will adorn you and if you are poor it will provide for you (or guard you).

4ـ تَعَلَّمِ العِلْمَ فَإنَّكَ إنْ كُنْتَ غَنِيّاً زانَكَ، وإنْ كُنْتَ فَقيراً مانَكَ (صانَكَ).

5. Learn the knowledge of the one who knows, and teach your knowledge to the one who is ignorant, for if you do this, he will be teach you that which you are ignorant of and you will benefit [others] with what you have learnt.

5ـ تَعَلَّمْ عِلْمَ مَنْ يَعْلَمُ، وعَلِّمْ عِلْمَكَ مَنْ يَجْهَلُ، فَإذا فَعَلْتَ ذلِكَ، عَلَّمَكَ ما جَهِلْتَ، وانْتَفَعْتَ بِما عَلِمْتَ.

6. He who places knowledge with one who is unworthy of it has wronged it [or him].

6ـ واضِعُ العِلْمِ عِنْدَ غَيْرِ أهْلِهِ ظالِمٌ لَهُ.

7. Through education, knowledge is gained.

7 ـ بِالتَّعَلُّمِ يُنالُ العِلْمُ.

8. Gain knowledge and you will be known by it, act upon it and you will be one of its worthy possessors.

8ـ تَعَلَّمُوا العِلْمَ تُعْرَفُوا بِهِ، واعْمَلُوا بِهِ تَـكُونُوا مِنْ أهْلِهِ.
