عنوان مقاله [English]
Self-knowledge has been amongst important concepts and issues in divine and non-divine schools of thought. To underscore this concept, Imam Ali (a) has employed the word Ma’rifat- e Nafs (Knowledge of self) comparing which with other synonyms words and phrases uncovers the accuracy and perspicacity of choice. Self-Knowledge is prior to other kinds of knowledge in importance. For the same weight it is also called the utmost of science and understanding, the highest of wisdoms and reasons, greatest of deliverances and etc. Numerous stipulations and description of self-knowledge has made this concept realizable but the reality of current human life runs contrary to it. Nonchalance, self-centeredness, egotism, self-excellence, devolvement, complacency, God-forgetfulness, negligence and ignorance are amongst barriers in the way f self-knowledge which are pointed to by Imam Ali (a).
