Advice of Luqman Hakeem (51)

“Indeed wisdom does ten things;

Firstly it gives life to the dead heart,

It raises the destitute to the mantles of kings,
It gives honour to the lowly,

It emancipates slavery,

It shelters the strangers,

It enriches the poor,

It increases the honour of the honoured,

The dominion and reign of the rulers,

It is better than wealth,

A guard against fear,

A readiness and preparation in war,

A capital at the time of profit,

It is an intercessor when faced with terror/horror,

It is a proof when belief ends,

And it is a screen when clothes fail to cover.”[1]
