(‘يؤتي الحكمة من يشاء و من يؤت الحكمة فقد أوتي خيرا كثيرا و ما يذكر إلا أولو الألبب’ ( سورة البقرة ٢٦٩

“He giveth wisdom unto whom He will, and he unto whom wisdom is given, he truly hath received abundant good. But none remember except men of understanding.” (Surah Al Baqarah 269) Continue reading
