Pearl of Wisdom

when it was said to him that his community will be tested, they asked how they may be delivered from it, to which he replied, 'The noble Book of Allah that cannot be overcome with falsehood, neither from in front nor from behind. It is descended from the all Wise, the Praised One. Allah will lead astray whoever seeks knowledge in other than it.'

Prophet Muhammad al-Mustafa [sawa]
Tafsir al-'Ayyashi, v. 1, p. 6, no. 11

This world is like a body whose head is pride, whose eyes are avarice, whose ears are greed, whose tongue is dissimulation, whose hand is desire, whose legs are vanity, whose heart is heedlessness, whose being is annihilation, and whose product is extinction.

It brings pride to whoever loves it, avarice to whoever prefers it, greed to whoever seeks it, and cloaks with hypocrisy whoever praises it. It gives vain power over whoever desires it; it leads to heedlessness in the person who relies on it. It seduces whoever admires its goods, but those goods do not last for him. It returns the person who gathers it and is miserly with it to its own abode, which is the Fire.
