Who those who know are, and those who know not, and those endowed with minds


احمد بن محمد عن الحسين بن سعيد عن القسم بن محمد عن على عن ابى بصير قال سئلت ابا جعفر عليه السلام عن قول الله تعالى هل يستوى الذين يعلمون والذين لا يعلمون انما يتذكر اولو الالباب قال نحن الذين نعلم وعدونا الذين لا يعلمون وشيعتنا اولو الالباب.


1 – Ahmad b. Muhammad from al-Husayn b. Sa`id from al-Qasim b. Muhammad from `Ali from Abu Basir.  He said: I asked Abu Ja`far عليه السلام about the saying of Allah تعالى “Shall those who know be deemed equal with those who know not? only those will remember, who are endowed with minds” (39:9) He said: We are the ones who know, and our enemies are those who know not, and our Shi`a are those endowed with minds.
