Pearl of Wisdom

The Holy Prophet asked a group of people who were praising a man, 'How is the man's intellect?' to which they replied, ?O Prophet of Allah, we are telling you about his endeavours at worship and other good acts, and you are asking us about his intellect?!' So he replied, 'Verily the stupid person suffers as a result of his stupidity worse than the licentiousness of an immoral person. The servants will rise up in rank in the Hereafter and will receive great proximity towards their Lord in proportion to their intellects.'

Prophet Muhammad al-Mustafa [sawa]
Majma' al-Bayan, v. 10, p. 487
