Ilmay Keh Rah Bahaq Na Numaa yad Jihaalatast.
(Knowledge that does not lead to the straight path is crass ignorance)
( May Allah have mercy on him )
Khush Aaan Ko Az Adab Khud Ra Beynaarast
Nadaaram Aaan Musalmaan Zaadah Ra Dost
Keh Dar Daaish Fuzood-o-Az Adab Kaast
Observing proper etiquette devolves on all, the ignorant as well as the knowing. But truly blessed are those who are saturated with a sense of proper etiquette. I do not hold as friends those born to Muslim parents who are adequate in intellect but remiss in observing proper etiquette.
(May Allah have mercy on him)
