Pearl of Wisdom

once asked one of his companions about his means of income. He said, may I be your ransom. I have given up trading.' Imam asked why, and he answered, 'I am waiting for this rule [i.e. the reign of your government].' Imam said, 'That is strange from you. Your wealth will perish. Do not abandon trading, and seek out the bounty of Allah. Open your door and exhibit your goods, and seek out the sustenance of your Lord.'

Imam Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sadiq [as]
Da'a'im al-Islam, v. 2, p. 16, no. 14

Letter 49 A letter to Mu'awiya.

This vicious world will try to turn a man away from religion and from having faith in the Hereafter. And when a worldly-minded person grasp a little of it, it always opens before him vistas of false hopes, ambitions, temptations and greed, so that he is never satisfied with what he has grabbed and will always covet for more. The result often is that he loses what he has already amassed and his plans do not work out. If you take a lesson from the past then you can guard your future very well.
