Islam joins knowledge and wisdom. Knowledge without wisdom harms mankind more than it benefits. As an example, knowledge of medicine without wisdom can be used to kill rather than cure.

Therefore the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) warns:

“Whoever increases his knowledge without increasing his asceticism and fear of Allah distances himself from Allah.”   (Kanz al-Irfân, 62)

- Islam is a religion of high morality: Man is envisaged as the peak of creation. He is the vicegerent of Allah on earth. Although he was created out of earth, Allah blew his spirit into his body. The holy Qur’an draws our attention to this fact and warns us not to let our souls be contaminated by our base desires. It advises man to purify his soul from vices and to reach Allah with a pure heart.

Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is the best example of one who has achieved this great purpose and has attained to the summit of morality. He has even stated that one of the main purposes of his prophethood was to exhibit the finest example of morality:

Indeed, I was sent to complete the perfection of morality.” (Muwatta, al-Hulk, 7)

The Holy Qur’an bears witnesses to this fact and praises him with the following verse:

And thou (standest) on an exalted standard of character.” (Qalam, 68:4)
