Pearl of Wisdom
'The Prophet (SAWA) once entered the mosque to find a large group of people gathered around a man, so he asked, 'Who is this?' to which they replied, 'A most learned scholar ('allama).' He then asked, 'And what is a most learned scholar?' to which they replied, '[He is ] the most knowledgeable of all people about Arab ancestry and events, and pre Islamic history, and Arab poetry.' So the Prophet said, 'That is knowledge which neither harms one who remains ignorant of it nor avails one who knows it.'

Spirituality - Where Does Wisdom Come From?
In the Holy Qur'an
Indeed, those who are near your Lord are not prevented by arrogance from His worship, and they exalt Him, and to Him they prostrate. (7:206)
In the Traditions
The Prophet said to some of his companions, "Why is it that I do not see sweetness in your worship?" When they asked him what sweetness of worship was, he replied, 'Humility'.
The Prophet said, "Good fortune is theirs who are humble - but not through poverty, who spend of their wealth which they have gained lawfully, who have mercy on the abased and poor and who keep company with the scholars of law and the wise."
