she marry ? " A man", answered the Imam , " of faith and God fearing for if

he loves her, he will respect her , and should he hate her won't do injustice

24 - Indeed , this world offers no everlasting blessing , nor one is

immune to its damages and evils . The world is a sham standing on the way to

happiness , an unreliable support .

Showing bravery towards friends and running away from enemies .

 

30 - Infamy is easier than entering the Hell .

misguided .

 

32 - Imam , peace be upon him , described his benefactor brother as follows :

I thought him to be the greatest of all . The secret of his greatness lay in

his low opinion of this world . Ignorance had no control on him . He did not

take any action unless he made sure that the action was useful . He never

complained,nor , did he get angry and distressed . He was silent for the

greater part of his life time and when he spoke , he was the most eluquent of

all . He looked weak ; how ever , he fought as bravely as a lion . At the

precence of scholars , he preferred listening to speaking . He spoke whenever

it was necessary , never saying anything he did not act upon and acting upon

things he did not speak about . When faced with two alternatives he was not

sure which one was more pleasing to God , he considered the alternative less

pleasing to himself . He did not blame anybody for doing something for

which there existed an acceptable excuse .

 

33 - An irrational person is rude , and a person with no ambition lacks

manliness , An infidel has no shame . Wisdom causes one to keep good

company with people . Happiness in both worlds is obtained by wisdom .

 

34 - I am astonished to see people thoughtful of their food , but unthoughtful

of their spiritual nourishment . They protect themselves against harmful

food , but fail to reject dirty and mean thoughts .

prayers . In response to those who had asked the reason , Imam said : " God is

beautiful and likes beauty , that is why I adorn myself at His presence .

 

36 - The only permanent phenomenon in this perishing world is Quran . There-

fore , let Quran be your Imam and leader to be guided . Indeed , those who

apply the teaching of Quran to their conduct , are the most deserving of the

Book , not withstanding they have not learnt it by heart .

And the farthest people from Quran are those not acting upon it's instructions ,

though they are able to recite it .

 

37 - O' people ! whoever with sincerity and devotion towards God ,

listens to His guidance , will be guided to the most righteous path and God

will assist him in knowledge and awareness to reach a happy end .

 

38 - A right question is tantamount to half knowledge , tolerance of people

is tantamount to a half of reason , and econmny is tantamount to a half of

expenditures .

 

39 - The highest degree of cleverness is God-fearing and piety , and the

highest degree of ignorance is gratifying one's passions .

 

40 - Friday night , I saw my mother worshipping till dawn bowing down and

prostrating herself . She offered petitions to many believers mentioning

their names , she did not offer any petition for herself , I therefore ,

asked her : " Mother , why did not you not offered any petition for yourself

as you did for others ? " " My son , " replied she , " Neighbours are to be

given priority over the members of the household amd oneself . "
