Companionship of Knowledge

"Knowledge is my Companion; it is with me everywhere I go. My heart is its container and not the bookshelf."

COMMENTARY: Hazrat Ali (karamAllah wajhu) states that his heart contains the 'Ilm which he uses and practices unlike those people who have knowledge but do not practice it, whom he compares with a trunk (or a bookshelf) loaded with books. In the Holy Qur'an, such people are compared with a donkey carrying a load of books.
