Hadith on Wisdom: Allah increases wisdom for the humble, He decreases wisdom for the arrogant

April 8, 2013

Ibn Abbas reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “There is no human being except that the wisdom of his mind is in the hands of an angel. When he shows humility, the angel is ordered to increase his wisdom. When he shows arrogance, the angel is ordered to decrease his wisdom.”
