The Student

The student-المتعلم والمستمع

1. If you are not an articulating scholar then be an attentive listener.

1ـ إذا لَمْ تَـكُنْ عالِماً ناطِقاً فَكُنْ مُسْتَمِعاً واعِياً.

2. The student must discipline himself in his quest for knowledge and must neither become bored of his studies nor overestimate what he already knows.

2ـ عَلَى المُتَعَلِّمِ أنْ يَدْأبَ نَفْسَهُ في طَلَبِ العِلْمِ، وَلايَمَلَّ مِنْ تَعَلُّمِهِ وَلايَسْتَكْثِرُ ما عَلِمَ.

3. One who learns becomes knowledgeable.

3ـ مَنْ تَعَلَّمَ عَلِمَ.

4. One who does not learn does not become knowledgeable.

4ـ مَنْ لَمْ يَتَعَلَّمْ لَمْ يَعْلَمْ.

5. One who gains knowledge so that he can act upon it is not distressed by its dullness.

5ـ مَنْ تَعَلَّمَ العِلْمَ لِلْعَمَلِ بِهِ لَمْ يُوحِشْهُ كَسادُهُ.

6. One who does not learn in his young age, does not progress in his old age.

6ـ مَنْ لَمْ يَتَعَلَّمْ فِي الصِّغَرِ لَمْ يَتَقَدَّمْ فِي الكِبَرِ.

7. One who does not bear the hardships of gaining knowledge (or education) remains in the abject ignorance?

7ـ مَنْ لَمْ يَصْبِرْ عَلى مَضَضِ التَّعْليمِ(التَّعَلُّمِ) بَقِيَ في ذُلِّ الجَهْلِ.

8. One who does not discipline himself (or spend his life) in acquiring knowledge cannot gain great successes.

8ـ مَنْ لَمْ يُدْئِبْ (لَمْ يُذِبْ) نَفْسَهُ فِي اكْتِسابِ العِلْمِ لَمْ يُحْرِزْ قَصَباتِ السَّبْقِ.

9. The one who does not know must never be too proud to learn.

9ـ لايَسْتَنْكِفَنَّ مَنْ لَمْ يَكُنْ يَعْلَمُ أنْ يَتَعَلَّمَ.

10. Do not speak to the ignorant ones about that which they do not know such that they belie you, for indeed your knowledge has a right over you and its right is that you bestow it to those who are deserving of it and deny it to those who are not deserving of it.

10ـ لاتُحَدِّثِ الجُهّالَ بِما لايَعْلَمُونَ فَيُكَذِّبُوكَ بِهِ، فَإنَّ لِعِلْمِكَ عَلَيْكَ حَقّاً، وحَقُّهُ عَلَيْكَ بَذْلَهُ لِمُسْتَحِقِّهِ ومَنْعُهُ مِنْ غَيْرِ مُسْتَحِقِّهِ.

11. One who is haughty does not learn.

11ـ لايَتَعَلَّمُ مَنْ يَتَكَبَّرُ.
