بَرَكاتُ التَّجرِبَةِ / Experience

1ـ الإمامُ عليٌّ (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ): التّجارِبُ علمٌ مُستفادٌ.
1- Imam Ali (AS) said, ‘Experiences are a beneficial knowledge.’
[Ghurar al-Hikam, no. 1036]

2ـ عنه (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ) ـ لابنهِ (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ) ـ: فَبادَرْتُك بِالأَدَبِ قَبْل‏أَنْ يَقْسوَ قلبُكَ وَيَشتغِلَ لُبُّكَ لتَستَقْبِلَ بجِدِّ رأيِكَ من الأمرِ ما قَد كَفاكَ أهلُ التَّجارِبِ بُغيَتَهُ وتَجرِبَتَهُ، فتكونَ قد كُفِيتَ مَؤونَةَ الطَّلَبِ وعُوفِيتَ مِن عِلاجِ التَّجرِبَةِ.
2- Imam Ali (AS) said to his son (AS), ‘I started teaching you manners before your heart hardened and your mind became preoccupied in order for you to comprehend with your mind what experienced people have spared you from searching and experiencing. Thus you were spared the hardship of search and the pain of experience.’
[Tuhaf al-`Uqoul, no. 70]
