Performance of Obligation

Wise Sayings of Imam Khomeini


o For us the important thing is that we perform our duty.

o We should not worry that perchance we will be defeated; we should worry

      lest we failed to perform our duties.

o Divine duties are God's trusts.

o We will perform our duty, and God, the Blessed and Exalted, does not

      expect from us anything beyond our capacity.

o If we perform the duty that God, the Blessed and Exalted, has made

     incumbent on us, we should not be afraid of (the possibility of) being


o If we get killed, it is in the line of duty and if we kill, that, too, is in the

      line of duty.

o We want to preserve Islam; this cannot be done by withdrawal. Don't

     think that withdrawal exempts you from performing your duty; it makes it

     (duty) double.

o All of us are responsible for the performance of duty and responsibility;

      not on the end-result of such performance.
