Try to transfer knowledge to your heart

The Imam advised that “If you are acquiring knowledge, try to transfer it to your heart after you have harmonized it with rational principles. It shall be effective when it goes to the heart. It is knowledge that sets you into motion. When you fail to send knowledge to the heart and simply gain it, it becomes a small box like a library in which you have collected things you learnt by rote so that this knowledge itself becomes a covering.”
