The three stages of knowledge 


قال ابن جماعة رحمه الله:(العلم ثلاثة أشبار:

– من دخل الشبر الأول تكبر.

– ومن دخل الشبر الثاني تواضع.

– ومن دخل الشبر الثالث علم أنه لا يعلم)  

تذكرة السامع والمتكلم (ص:65)
Ibn jama’ha رحمة الله عليه said:

Knowledge has three stages:

1) the first leads one to arrogance 

2) the second leads one to humility

3) the third stage leads one to realise he does not know.
