NOTE: What are “The precepts of wisdom”?

In the name of The One True GOD, Most Gracious, Most Merciful…

I’m realllyyyy sorry for not being to update at all…But I guess silence is better than writing or speaking something that is empty and without any given thought.

I’ll make a quick note. These verses hold something very precious for someone growing…

Wisdom is one of the invaluable gifts…it’s a nutrient that is essential. That’s all that I can write for now. Hope you can find these verses clear too…

“Thy Lord has decreed that ye worship none but Him, and that ye be kind to parents. Whether one or both of them attain old age in thy life, say not to them a word of contempt, nor repel them, but address them in terms of honour.

And out of kindness, lower to them the wing of humility, and say “My Lord! bestow on them Thy Mercy even as they cherished me in childhood.”

Your Lord knoweth best what is in your hearts: if you do deeds of righteousness, verily He is Most Forgiving to those who turn to him again and again (in true penitence).

And render to the kindred their due rights, as (also) to those in want, and to the wayfarer: but squander not (your wealth) in a manner spendthrift.

Verily spendthrifts are brothers of the Evil Ones; and the Evil One is to his Lord (Himself) ungrateful.

And even thou hast to turn away from them in pursuit of the Mercy your Lord which you do expect, yet speak to them a word of easy kindness.

Make not thy hand tied (like a niggard’s) to thy neck, nor stretch it forth to its utmost reach, so that thou become blameworthy and destitute.

Verily thy Lord doth provide sustenance in abundance for whom He pleaseth, and He provideth in a just measure. For He doth know and regard all His servants.

Kill not your children for fear of want: We Shall provide sustenance for them as well as for you. Verily the killing of them is a great sin.

Nor come night to adultery: for it is a shameful (deed) and an evil, opening the road (to other evils).

Nor take life- which GOD has made sacred- except for just cause. And if anyone is slain wrongfully, we have give his heir authority (do demand Qisas or to forgive): but let him not exceed bounds in the matter of taking life; for he is helped (by the Law).

Come not night to the orphan’s property except to improve it, until he attains the age of full strength; and fulfil (every) engagement, for (every) engagement will be enquired into (on the Day of Reckoning).

Give full measure when ye measure, and weigh with a balance that is straight: that is the most fitting and the most advantageous in the final determination.

And pursue not that which thou hast no knowledge; for every act of hearing, or of seeing or of (feeling in) the Heart will be enquired into (on the Day of Reckoning).

Nor walk on the earth with insolence: for thou canst not rend the earth asunder, nor reach the mountains in height.

Of all such things the evil is hateful in the sight of thy Lord.

These are among the (precepts of) wisdom, which thy Lord has revealed to thee. Take not, with GOD, another object of worship, lest thou shouldst be thrown into Hell, blameworthy and rejected.”

(20.23-39)
