Ignorance Entails Infidelity, Knowledge Fear.

June 24, 2018

 

Abdullah Bin Mubarak Al Marwazi (A Sufi)
“I saw a Christian Monk (rahib) who was emaciated due to self-mortification and bent double by fear of God. I asked him to tell me the way to God. He answered, if you know God you would know the way to God. Then he said I worship Him though I do not know Him, whereas you disobey Him although you know Him, i.e. Knowledge entail fear, yet I see you confident; and infidelity entails ignorance, yet I feel fear within myself. I laid this to heart and it restrained me from many ill deeds”. Ignorance in Arabic is described by the word “Juhal” which is an antonym of knowledge “ilm”. “Jahalah” a derivative of “Juhl” describes an act done ignorantly, though may be done knowingly and willfully.

“Cursorily” knowledge is but “ignorance” exuding arrogance culminating in entrenched infidelity.
