Pearl of Wisdom

Venerate the scholar for his knowledge and abandon argumentation with him. Depreciate the ignorant man for his ignorance but do not drive him away. Rather draw him near and teach him.' Shahid al-Awwal (may Allah sanctify his soul) wrote in his al-Qg,wa'id, 'The veneration of a believer is allowed according to what is current amongst the norms of the time, even though the practice has not been handed down from our forefathers but because of the general laws indicating to it. Allah, most High, says, That, and whoever venerates the sacraments of Allah indeed that arises from the godwariness in the hearts , and He, most High, says, That, and whoever venerates the sacraments of Allah, that is better for him with his Lord. , and The Prophet (SAWA) said, 'Do not display hatred towards each other, nor be jealous of each other, nor oppose each other, nor break off relations with each other, but rather be brothers as servants of Allah.' Based on this , standing and veneration through curtsying and the like is allowed, and may even be obligatory if abandonment of it will lead to mutual hatred and breaking of relations or to the insult of a believer. It is authenticated that the Prophet (SAWA) stood up for Fatima (AS) and for Ja'far [may Allah be pleased with him) when he arrived from Abyssinia, and he said to the Ansar, 'Stand up for your leader.' It has been reported that he (SAWA) stood up for 'Ikrima b. Abi Jahl when he arrived from Yemen, gladdened by his arrival.'

"The mercy of Allah and His blessings be upon you, O Ahl al-Bayt (People of the Prophet's House); surely He is Praised, Glorified" (Quran, 11:73).

In language, majd is glory; when combined with good deeds, a person's own prestige will be enhanced, so he will be called glorious. It also conveys the meanings of manliness, generosity, openhandedness, and gracious conduct.

"Al-Majeed" connotes general honor or abundance of wealth. A man who is majeed is extremely generous. Al-Majeed is glorified to the utmost extent of Glorification due to His own merits, qualities, and actions. He is also great in His attributes, beautiful in His power and authority. Al-Majeed has the utmost limit of glory; His benevolence is great.

Al-Majeed is the great One, the One whose status is Sublime, Who is most Benevolent. His status is tremendous, Whose Benevolence is great. He is Honored, Whose actions are beautiful, and who is generous in giving. Al-Majeed grants His favors to all others, who is Glorified because of His actions, who is Praised by His creation due to His greatness. He alone has the perfect Honor, the vast kingdom since time immemorial; the One Who does not disappoint anyone, whose will is always carried out. Whose Honor is not earned, whose actions are never abhorred, whose benevolence is beautiful, and who gives most generously...

All meanings of perfect and inclusive glory are always rendered to Allah, and all of them combined are but a drop in the ocean of His Glory. Glory is also attached to His prophets, to the successors of the latter, and to the mujahidin.

Allah has described the Holy Quran as majeed, saying, "Qaf. I swear by al-Quran al-majeed..." (Quran, 50:1). The Holy Quran is majeed because of the abundance of wealth of knowledge, ethics, and sublime objectives it contains and due to the benefits it contains; so, it is beneficial for man both in the life of this world and in the life to come.

One who personifies in his conduct the essence of this attribute ought to be gracious in all circumstances and most cultured.
