الإمامُ الكاظمُ (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ): تَفقَّهُوا في دِينِ اللّهِ، فإنَّ الفِقهَ مِفتاحُ البَصيرَةِ، وتَمامُ العِبادَةِ، والسَّببُ إلَى المَنازِلِ الرَّفيعَةِ والرُّتَبِ الجَليلَةِ في الدِّينِ والدنيا، وفَضلُ الفَقيهِ علَى العابِدِ كَفَضلِ الشَّمسِ علَى الكواكِبِ، ومَن لم يَتَفَقَّهْ في دِينِهِ لم يَرضَ اللّهُ لَهُ عَمَلاً
Imam al-Kazim (AS) said, ‘The superiority of a learned person over a worshipper is as the superiority of the sun over the planets, and whoever does not educate themselves in their religion, Allah will not accept a single deed from them.’[Bihar al-Anwar, v. 78, p. 321, no. 19]
