“If people knew what is in seeking knowledge, they would seek it even through shedding blood and wading into the depth of the sea.”

Hawzah News Agency - Imam al-Baqir peace be on him, urged the Muslims to seek knowledge. He summoned them to strive to study knowledge because it is the creative means for their development and the prosper of their life. He, peace be on him said: “If people knew what is in seeking knowledge, they would seek it even through shedding blood and wading into the depth of the sea.”

He, peace be on him, advised some of his companions to spread knowledge. In addition, he ordered them not to be proud towards the teacher. He, peace be on him, said: “Indeed if you are good in teaching the people and do not show pride towards them, Allah will increase you from His favor. If you prevent them from learning your knowledge, then it is incumbent on Allah, the Great and Almighty, to deprive you of knowledge and its splendor and to drop your position from the hearts.”15

His Honoring the Seekers of Knowledge

He, peace be on him, took care of the seekers of knowledge and raised their position. When he saw one of them, he said: “Welcome to the will of the Apostle of Allah, may Allah bless him and his family. “Imam al-Baqir, peace be on him, said: “When my father, Zayn al-‘Abidin, looked at the young men who sought knowledge, he made them nearer to him, saying: ‘Welcome to you, you are the deposits of knowledge. If you are the young men of people, you are about to be the elders of others.'”
