Pearl of Wisdom

when 'Abdullah b. Sinan asked him, 'Is man better or the angels?', replied, 'The Commander of the Faithful (AS) said, 'Allah, the Exalted, gave the angels intellect without desire, He gave the beasts desire without intellect, and He gave both to the sons of Adam. So a man whose intellect prevails over his desire is better than the angels whilst a man whose desire prevails over his intellect is worse that the beasts.'

Imam Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sadiq [as]
Bihar al-Anwar, v. 60, p. 299, no. 5

In the Holy Qur'an

Say (as for) the death from which you flee, that will surely overtake you, then you shall be sent back to the Knower of the unseen and the seen (62:8)

In the Traditions

The Holy Prophet said, “Remember the destroyer of pleasures.”
When asked what that was, he replied, “Death. Wherever one of Allah’s servants remembers this when he is wealthy, this world is constricted for him. Wherever he remembers it in hardship, it is expanded for him.”

Imam Ali said, “Wash the dead and your heart will be moved, for surely an empty body is a profound lesson.”
