Pearl of Wisdom

Action is unacceptable when based on any of three things: polytheism, infidelity and one's own opinion. When asked what action based on an opinion meant, he replied, 'It is when you leave the Book of Allah and the practice of His Prophet and act upon your own opinion.'

Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib [as]
Ibid. no. 1640

The Lantern of the Path

The path of Islam contains a most comprehensive and total system of conduct for the wayfarer. The outer behaviour of a true Muslim reflects what is deep in his inner consciousness.

In his teachings, Imam Ja'far al-Sadiq shows the way to equilibrium in a most inspired way of tawhid. As a man of insight and knowledge he sees the unified hand and demonstrates it to the sincere seeker. These teachings can be of benefit to anyone who has an interest in spiritual matters and is concerned with benefiting from the path of Islam.

The Imam's explanations in 'The Lantern of the Path to Almighty Allah' contain many levels of understanding. Much depends upon the state of the seeker and the extent of his sincerity. Although this section is small, its meanings are vast.

We pray to Allah to increase our knowledge and experience of His vast compassion and mercy.
