Pearl of Wisdom

to his son Muhammad b. al-Hanafiyya when he gave him the standard in the Battle of the Camel, mountains may move from their position but you should not move from yours. Grit your teeth. Lend to Allah your head [i.e. give yourself to Allah]. Plant your feet firmly in the ground. Have your eye on the remotest foe and lower your gaze, and know that victory is from Allah, the Glorified.'

Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib [as]
Nahj al-Baldgha, Sermon 11

Making Claims E-mail

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.'
