Pearl of Wisdom
lt narrated that Imam al-Rida (AS) recited some verses composed by 'Abd al-Muttalib: All of people place the blame on time When the trouble with time is only ourselves; We reprove time while the fault lies within us If time could speak, it would surely mock us. The wolf shuns the meat of a fellow wolf Whereas we devour each other in broad daylight. Attired to deceive with our beautiful clothes, Yet woe betide the stranger when he approaches us.'
Imam Ali ibn Musa al-Ridha [as]
'Uyun Akhbar al-Rida (AS), v. 2, p. 177, no. 5
