Wisdom: A Great Treasure
[2:269] He bestows wisdom upon whomever He chooses, and whoever attains wisdom, has attained a great bounty. Only those who possess intelligence will take heed.
God gave us the key to wisdom in the first three revelations of the Quran: read, write, think and read the Quran from cover to cover
[96:1] Read, in the name of your Lord, who created.
[96:2] He created man from an embryo.
[96:3] Read, and your Lord, Most Exalted.
[96:4] Teaches by means of the pen.
[96:5] He teaches man what he never knew.
[68:1] NuN,* the pen, and what they (the people) write.
Thidly: Think and Read the Quran from cover to cover
[73:2] Meditate during the night, except rarely.
[73:3] Half of it, or a little less.
[73:4] Or a little more. And read the Quran from cover to cover.
When we read, write and think we are absorbing information and knowledge. A smart person learns from their own experience, but a wise person learns from other peoples experience. If we weren’t for writing and the ability to store information and for others to be able to read it we would never have advanced as a civilization because we would never be able to build on top of the knowledge of the people who preceded us.
