Pearl of Wisdom

from his fathers (AS) the conversation of John with the devil: 'John (AS) asked, 'Have you ever been triumphant over me for any moment?' He [the devil] said, 'No, but you have a feature that pleases me.' John asked, 'And what is that?' He said, 'You are a person who eats too much, so when you break your fast and fill yourself, it prevents you from performing some of your prayers and night vigils.' John (AS) said, 'Therefore I will make a pledge to Allah that I will never fill myself with food until I meet Him.' Satan said to him, 'I will make a pledge to Allah that I will never advise a submitter [muslim] again until I meet Him.' So he left and never returned to him after that.'

Imam Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sadiq [as]
al-Kafi, v. 2, p. 665, no. 20

Letter 37 A letter to Mu'awiya.

Allahu Akbar! How hopelessly you are engulfed in your inordinate and sinful desires, how mercilessly you are swept by such vicious and unholy cravings which misguide you in this life and will bring you to a sad end. You have forsaken the cause of truth and justice and have arrogantly spurned the arguments which are agreeable to Allah and were unacceptable to man.
What do you mean by creating this faction and revolt with pretence of taking revenge on the murderers of Uthman?

The real facts of the case are that during the life of Caliph Uthman, you only went to his help when this action in the end was profitable to you and you could get something out of him, and you refused to help him when he was really in need of you and your support and for which he had frequently requested you.
