Pearl of Wisdom

A man came to the Commander of the Faithful and said, 'Verily I have supplicated to Allah, but I have not received an answer!', the Imam (AS) said, 'You have described Allah in a manner that he is not worthy of being described, for verily supplication has four stages: sincerity of the heart, making the intention, having true knowledge of the means, and being fair regarding the request. So did you supplicate knowing these four conditions?' He said, 'No', then the Imam (AS) said, 'Then know them now.'

Tanbih al-Khawatir, v. 1, p. 302

In the Holy Qur'an


Repel (evil) with what is best, and lo! He between whom and you was enmity would be as if he were a warm friend (41:34)

In the Traditions


The Prophet said, "I have been sent to perfect the nobility of your character."

The Prophet said, "Good character melts sins as the sun melts ice, and bad character spoils an action just as vinegar spoils honey."

A man came to the Prophet saying "O Prophet of God, which prople have the most perfect faith?" "Those of them who have the best character", he replied.

Imam Ali said, "Cheerfulness is the basis of love, tolerance the burial of faults, conciliation the concealing of shortcomings, and there is no better relative than good character."
