Pearl of Wisdom

People who perform acts of courtesy towards others benefit more from them than the receptors of their kindness, for verily they have the reward for them, the [rewarding feeling of] pride for having helped someone as well as a mention. So however much good a man may do for others, it ultimately always starts by benefiting himself, and hence he never seeks thanks for the benefit incurred by himself through helping others.'

Imam Muhammad ibn Ali al-Taqi [as]
Kashf al-Ghamma, v. 3, p. 137

In the Holy Qur'an

And Allah has created you and what you make (37:96)

He said: Our Lord is He Who gave to everything its creation, then guided it (to his goal). (20:50)

In the Traditions

A person asked Imam Ali whether man has the power to exercise free will or not. If he has the power to do things, then how is it possible to say that there is no power to help but from Allah?
The Imam said, "You have ability by the Will of Allah, while He has it independently. If He endows you with it, that is His favour. If He takes it away from you, that means He is testing you. Iny any case, you should remember that whatever He bestows on you, He is still its owner. If He enables you to do a thing, that thing is still within His power."
