Pearl of Wisdom

'Allah Almighty said: 'I only accept the prayer of he who has humiliated himself to My Majesty, has refrained himself from carnal desires for My sake, he passes his day with My remembrance, does not act haughty over My creation, feeds the hungry, clothes the undressed, shows compassion to the afflicted and shelters the stranger. The light of such a person will shine like the sun and I shall grant him light in darkness and knowledge in ignorance. I will preserve him with My honour and guard him with My angels. When he calls me I will answer him, when he asks Me I will grant him. His example is like the story of gardens of Paradise where no fruit will become dry and its state will never change.'

Imam Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sadiq [as]
al-Mahasin, v. 1, p. 79, no. 44

Sermon 40 When Amir al-mu'minin heard the cry of Kharijites that "Verdict is only that of Allah" he said:

The sentence is right but what (they think) it means, is wrong. It is true that verdict lies but with Allah, but these people say that (the function of) governance is only for Allah. The fact is that there is no escape for men from ruler good or bad. The faithful persons perform (good) acts in his rule while the unfaithful enjoys (worldly) benefits in it. During the rule, Allah would carry everything to end. Through the ruler tax is collected, enemy is fought, roadways are protected and the right of the weak is taken from the strong till the virtuous enjoys peace and allowed protection from (the oppression of) the wicked.

 

Another version:

When Amir al-mu'minin heard the cry of the Kharijites on the said verdict he said:

I am expecting the verdict (destiny) of Allah on you.

As for good government the pious man performs good acts in it, while in a bad government the wicked person enjoys till his time is over and death overtakes him.
