Pearl of Wisdom

when an atheist asked him about the science of the stars [i.e. astrology] said, 'It is a science whose benefits are few and whose harms are many... an astrologer contradicts Allah in His knowledge, claiming he is refuting Allah in His fate over His creation.'

Imam Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sadiq [as]
It can be understood from these traditions that the science of stars that is prohibited is not astronomy that exists in this present time, but rather it is the study of stars that looks into the effect of stars on the fate of a person and foretelling future events through observing the planets in that they themselves effect human beings.

Sermon 202 Transience of this world, and importance of collecting provisions for the next life.

O' people, certainly this world is a passage while the next world is a place of permanent abode. So, take from the passage (all that you can) for the permanent abode. Do not tear away your curtain before Him Who is aware of your secrets. Take away from this world your hearts before your bodies go out of it, because herein you have been put on trial, and you have been created for the other world. When a man dies people ask what (property) he has left while the angels ask what (good actions) he has sent forward. May Allah bless you; send forward something, it will be a loan for you, and do not leave everything behind, for that would be a burden on you.
