السلام عليكم

A short story:

رِجَالُ الْعِلْمِ

فِي يَومٍ مِنَ الْأَيّامِ , كَانَ أَرْبَعَةَ رِجَالٍ بُرْمِيّينَ. بَعْضَهُمْ كَانُوا عَلَامَاتٍ
مَشْهُورِينَ وَلكن كَانَ الرَّجُلُ الْآخِرُ مِسْكِيناً فَلَمْ يَدْرُسْ فِي الْمَدِينَةِ.
حِينَئِذٍ قَرَّرُوا أَنْ يُسافِرُوا خَارجَ الْبِلَدِ. خِلَالَ رِحْلَتِهِمْ رَأوا أَسَدً كَبِيرً فِي
غَابَةٍ عَلَى الْأَرْضِ. صَاحَ العَلَامَةُ الْأَكْبَرُ "إِنَّ الْأَسَدُ سَقِيمٌ
وَيَحْتَاجُنَا! "
وأَجَابَ الْمِسكِينُ " لَا يا شَيْخُ! لَا تُسَائِدْهُ, الْأسَدُ
يَنَامُ فَقَطْ وَعِنْدَمَا يَسْتَيْقِظُ سَيَقْتُلُنَا! "
ولكن صَاحَ الْعَلَامَاتُ " أُسْكُتْ! قَرَأْنَا
كُتُباً لَا سَمِعْتَهَا! "
فَسَكَتَ الْمسْكِينُ وَأَخَفَى حَتَّى الْحَيَوانُ قَفَزَعَلَيهِمْ فَجَأْةً وقَتَلَهُمْ بِسُرْعَةٍ!
" يَا رَبُّ! " نَطَقَ الرَّجُلُ الْخَفِي " ماذَا الْعِلمُ بِدونِ العَقْلِ؟؟!



TRANSLATION:
‘Men of Knowledge’
Once upon a time (lit: on a day from among the days), there were four Burmese men. Some among them were famous savants but the last man was unfortunate for he did not study in the city. At that time, they (the four men) decided to travel abroad. During their journey, they saw a large lion in a forest, on the ground.
The eldest savant said, ‘Indeed the lion is sick and needs us!’ and the Unfortunate One replied, ‘O no, O Scholar! Do not help him! The lion is only sleeping and when he wakes he will kill us!’
But the savant shouted, ‘Be silent! We have read books (that) you have not heard of!’ And so the Unfortunate One was silent; and he hid until the animal jumped upon them (the famous savants) suddenly and killed them with haste!
‘O God!’ uttered the hidden man...
‘What is Knowledge without Intellect?!’
