Pearl of Wisdom
When the governors [of a place] are dishonest, rainfall is withheld [from that place], and when the sultan is unjust the whole country is abased, and when the alms-tax is not paid, livestock die as a result.' sins whose punishment is hastened in the life of this world and is not delayed until the Hereafter: insolence to one's parents, intimidation of others and in gratitude for a favour.'
Imam Ali ibn Musa al-Ridha [as]
Amali al-Mufid, p. 310, no. 2
