    • Two Excerpts From the Mentor

      1. The mentor was saying:

      With the capacities and talents Allah has given you, going after the knowledge is mandatory upon you. Therefore, tomorrow in the judgment day when you are asked about your duties, you will be asked about how you went after the knowledge. You are told that by learning and then teaching you could save thousands from blasphemy and you could guide them to Allah, what do you reply at that time and what do you do?

      Our master, Imam Ali (Peace be upon him) had said (Wisdom #479 in Nahj-al-Balaghah): "God has not asked from the people of ignorance to learn the way he asked the people of knowledge to teach."

      Before Allah asks from the people of ignorance why didn't you learn, he will ask the people of knowledge why didn't you teach?

      If a person doesn't try to acquire knowledge (and he could) and then because of this ignorance some people are misguided, then isn't he/she responsible?

       

      2. The mentor was saying:

      If you think carefully, then you find out some how the crimes that future people will commit are written in our deeds. Because we could create a better environment for them to think correctly and not to commit crimes but we didn't.

      Yes, if we feel these responsibilities and believe that our ignorance could cause the sins of future people, then we, like great people (e.g. Ayatollah Boroujerdi), try not to waste even one minute of our time.

      Translated from the book in Persian about late Allameh Karbaschian named the letters of Mentor (Rasael Ostad).
