Maxims of Imam Hussein A.S

part 2


16 - Those who worship God for the hope of gaining , they're not real worshippers ,they're merchants. Those who

worship God out of fear ( of punishment ) , they're slaves. And those who worship God to be grateful towards their creator , they are the free people, and their worship is a real one. (Biharol Anwar, Vol. 78 , P. 117)


17 - Beware that the need of people to you is among the blessings of God to you. So do not scare away the needy people when they come to you, as the God’s blessings will return and go elsewhere. (Biharol Anwar, Vol. 78, P. 121)


18 - O' people take a lesson from the advice that God gave to His true believers, among which reproaching the Jewish scholars where he said:" Why do Jewish scholars not prohibit their people from saying sinful words? "And also (the Almighty) said:" Those who turned into atheists, from among the descendants of Israel, were cursed”‌‌... his Almighty added:" certainly evil was that which they did. "Surely the God criticized them for they turned a blind eye to what they saw of evil and corruption from the tyrants of their time out of greed or fear. The Almighty God says: " Do not fear people, rather, fear me! “The Almighty said: “The believing men and the believing women, they are guardians of each other; they enjoin good and forbid evil.”‌‌ (Tohaf-al- Uqoul , P. 237)


19 - Whoever seeks the satisfaction of people through disobedience of God; Then God subjects him to people. (Biharol Anwar, Vol. 78, P. 126)


20 - Avoid oppressing the one who does not have any supporter against you, other than the Almighty God. (Biharol Anwar, Vol. 78, P. 118)


21 - One who reveals your faults to you like a mirror is your true friend, and one who flatters you and covers up your faults is your enemy. (Biharol Anwar, Vol. 78 , P. 128)


22 - Wisdom will not be complete except by following the truth. (Biharol Anwar, Vol. 78, P. 127)


23 - Associating with corrupt people makes you subject to suspicion. (Biharol Anwar, Vol. 78, P. 122)


24 - Crying out of fear from God is salvation from the hellfire. (Mostadrakol Wasael, Vol. 11, P. 245)


25 - A man came to Imam Hussain (Master of the martyrs) and said: I am a sinful man and can't avoid doing sin, please advise me. Imam (as) said: If you can do these five things, then commit sin as much you like. First of all: don’t eat the sustenance of God and commit sin as much you like. Second: go beyond the domain of God and commit sin as much you like. Third: seek a site where God can not observe you and commit sin as much you like. Fourth :if the Angel of death comes to you to take away your soul, expel him away from yourself and commit sin as much you like. Fifth: If the Angel of Hell was about to throw you into the hell-fire, stop him and commit sin as much you like. (Biharol Anwar, Vol. 78, P. 126)


26 - Avoid doing what makes you obliged to apologize for it. True believers never do anything for which they have to apologize. Fake believers , on the contrary , keep doing wrong and say they are sorry in the aftermath. (Tohaf-al- Uqoul , P. 248)


27 - Hastiness is foolishness. (Biharol Anwar, Vol. 78, P. 122)


28 - Do not permit anybody (to come in) before saying Salam (greetings). (Biharol Anwar, Vol. 78 , P. 117)


29 - Among the signs of ignorance is arguing with irrational people. (Biharol Anwar, Vol. 78, P. 119)


30 - Among the signs of a learned man is criticising his own words and being informed of various viewpoints. (Biharol Anwar, Vol. 78, P. 119)
