Pearl of Wisdom

'Prophet Moses (AS) [addressed Allah] saying, ?O Lord, who are your special people whom You will shade with the shade of Your Throne on the day when no shade will avail except Your Shade?' So Allah revealed to him, '... and those who are angered when the things that I have prohibited are deemed lawful [by people], the way a leopard is angered when it is wounded!'

Imam Ali ibn Hussain Zayn al-'Abidin [as]
Wasa'il al-Shi'a, v. 11, p. 416, no. 3
