Pearl of Wisdom

in regards to the verse, They give food, for the love of Him, to the needy, the orphan and the prisoner. 'Fatima (AS) had some barley which she made into a sweet paste. When they had finished cooking it and placed it on the table, a poor man came and said, may Allah have mercy upon you! Feed us from the sustenance Allah has given you.' 'Ali (AS) stood up and gave him a third of it. Soon afterwards, an orphan came and said, may Allah have mercy upon you! Feed us from the sustenance Allah has given you.' 'Ali (AS) stood up and gave him a third. Soon afterwards, a prisoner came and said, may Allah have mercy upon you! Feed us from the sustenance Allah has given you.' So 'Ali (AS) gave him the last third, and they did not even taste it. So in honouring them, Allah, the Exalted, sent down the Qur'anic verses until, And your endeavour has been well appreciated.?

Sermon 20 Death and taking lessons from it

If you could see that has been seen by those of you who have died, you would be puzzled and troubled. Then you would have listened and obeyed; but what they have seen is yet curtained off from you. Shortly, the curtain would be thrown off. You have been shown, provided you see and you have been made to listen provided you listen, and you have been guided if you accept guidance. I spoke unto you with truth. You have been called aloud by (instructive) examples and warned through items full of warnings. After the heavenly messengers (angels), only man can convey message from Allah. (So what I am conveying is from Allah).
