A Seed Grows in Soft Ground

Peace, one and all…

Imam Musa al-Kazim (God sanctify his noble soul) is reported to have said:

‘Verily a seed grows in soft ground and does not grow on stone,
in the same way that wisdom thrives in the heart of the humble and does not thrive in the heart of the proud and haughty, because God has made humbleness the instrument of the intellect’
The Scale of Wisdom, 1719
