There are four types of people in this world who enter a conversation/ discussion:

1) One who knows not, and himself knows he knows not, is a student. Teach that person.
2) One who knows, and others know he knows, is a teacher. Learn from that person.

3) One who knows, and himself knows not that he knows, is humble. Encourage him.
4) One who knows not, and himself knows not that he knows not, is stupid. Avoid that person. (Note a person who himself thinks he knows, but does not know that he does not know – usually due to arrogance mixed with ignorance)

In any dialogue keep these in mind and you shall be guided to productive discourses.

      Inshallah May this post help you Brother Raheel, it most certainly helped me a great deal. The wisdom of the wise must surely be shared.
      Walaikum as salaam
      “O Allah, make my love for You the most beloved thing to me, and Your displeasure with me the most fearful thing to me, and instill in me a passion for meeting You; when you have given the people of the world the pleasures of their world, make the coolness of my eyes (pleasure) in worshipping You. Aameen Thuma Aameen”
