Wisdom never attains perfection except by following the truth (obeying the commandments of Allah).

One who loves you prevents you from all evils, while your enemy persuades you to commit wrong or evil.

Act in this world like a person who knows that you will definitely be rewarded for good deeds and punished for sins and crimes.

One who annoys God to please people, God leaves him to the people.

Some people worship God coveting His rewards. This is the worship of merchants. Some people worship

God fearing His punishments. This is worship of slaves. Some people worship God thanking His Blessings.

This is the worship of free superior persons.

What is poverty? Imam replied, “Avarice and despair.”

What is richness? Imam replied, “To be happy with what suffices you and to have few desires.”

One who accepts your gifts has really helped you in attaining generosity.

One who removes troubles from a believer, God expels troubles from him in this world and in the Hereafter.

Do not seek help from any person except the one who is religious, or generous, or of noble parentage.

Compete for virtuous deeds and hasten to seize opportunities for good deeds.

The most forgiving person is the one who forgives in spite of his ability to punish.

If you hear someone back-biting the people, try to be unfamiliar to him.

Do not speak about your brother (in faith) behind his back except what you like to be spoken about you behind your back.

Salaam has seventy virtues, sixty nine of which are for the one who is first to greet.

Do not allow any one to enter or to speak to you if he does not greet you.

A miser behaves miserly even in greeting salaam to others.

What has he obtained who lost You O' God? And what has he lost who found You?

People are slave of this world and their religion is just like saliva or taste on the tongue. They revolve around religion as long as their material needs are well provided; but when they face difficulties, tests and trials, very few people prove to be stead-fast.

A person came to Imam Husayn (a.s.) and said, “I am a sinner and can not control myself. Please bless me with your admonition to me.”The Imam replied, “Don't eat any food created by God and commit whatever sin you like. Get out of God's realm (universe) and commit what ever sin you like. Find a place where God cannot see you and commit what ever sin you like. When the Angel of Death comes to withdraw soul from your body, make him flee from you and commit what ever sin you like.”

Beware of oppressing a person , who finds no one to revenge against you except God, the Mighty and Majestic.

No one should feel secured on the Day of Resurrection except those who feared God in this world. (Biharul Anwar volume 44 page 192)

One who reveals your faults to you like a mirror is your true friend, and one who flatters you and covers up your fault is your enemy. (Biharul Anwar volume 78 page 128)

Associating with corrupt people makes you subject to suspicion. Hastiness is foolishness .The most generous person is the one who offers help to those who do not expect him to help. Tolerance is man's ornament, keeping promises is a sign of nobility, and bonding with others is a grace. (Biharul Anwar volume 78 p. 121-122)

Never trust any body except those who fear God. (Balagat-ul-Husayn page 292)

A person asked, “How can we know God?”Imam replied, “By knowing and obeying the Imam of your time.”  (Biharul Anwar volume 5 page 312”
