Pearl of Wisdom

in his advice to Ibn Mas'ud said, ?O Ibn Mas'ud, increase in the acts of righteousness and good, for both the good [people] and the bad will regret; the good-doer will say, 'If only I had done more good!' And the bad-doer will say, 'I was negligent', and the evidence for this is the verse: And I swear by the self-blaming soul.?

Prophet Muhammad al-Mustafa [sawa]
Makarim al-Akhlaq, v. 2, p. 353, no. 2660

In reality the claim belongs to the prophets, the Imams and the truthful, and a man who makes a claim improperly is like the accursed Iblis. He lays claim to devoutness while in reality he contends with his Lord and opposes His command.

Whoever makes such claims reveals his lie, and the liar is not trustworthy; whoever claims what is not lawful for him has the gates of affliction opened for him. Anyone who makes a claim will doubtless be asked for clear proof, upon which he is shown to be bankrupt and disgraced. The truthful person is not asked the reason for his actions; as 'Ali said, 'No one sees a truthful person without being in awe of him.'
