Three eyes don’t cry in the Day of Judgment


Imam Baqir (A.S)

All eyes are crying in the day of judgment except for three : an eye stayed the night vigilant in the way of God , an eye cried in fear of God , and an eye guarded from the Godly unlawful.

What is meant by a Young Person?


Imam Jafar Sadiq (A.S) said to a man:

“What is meant by a young person [Al-Fata] in your estimation?”

The man replied, “A youth.” The Imam (A.S) replied, “No, the young person [Al-Fata] is the true believer. Surely the Companions of the Cave [Ashab Kahf] were all old people, however Allah, Glory and Greatness be to Him, called them youth who believed in Him.”

The Condition of a Hospitable Believer on the Day of Judgement


Imam Ali (A.S) says:

“On the Day of Judgement a hospitable believer will arise from his grave in such a condition that his face will be shining like the disc of the moon.

The people will wonder and think within themselves as to whether he is a Prophet. However, the angel accompanying him will introduce him and say`:

“He is the man who was hospitable and entertained hid guests and thus he has no way other than that of entering Paradise”.

(Biharul Anwar, vol.XV, p.242)

What is the most important point before worshipping God?


Imam Ali (A.S) said: First of all place the knowledge and recognition of the one you are worshipping in your heart, soul, spirit and life. Find out fully who you are worshipping so that all the actions you do with all of your body parts and senses can be counted as your prayers and worship in order that all those prayers can benefit you, otherwise prayers without recognition of the one who you are worshipping, will have no use for you.

Remembrance of Allah


Imam Al-Baqir (peace be upon him) has said: “Allah’s remembrance of ‘people who pray’ is greater and superior to their remembrance of Him. Do you not observe that He has said (in the Noble Qur’an): {Remember Me and I shall remember you.}”‌1

Favoring One’s Father


Imam Javad (A.S): Favoring One’s Father
imam javad (a.s)
Bakr the son of Salih narrates the following story:
My son in law wrote Imam Javad (PBUH) a letter which included the following: “My father has great animosity with Prophet Muhammad’s progeny (PBUT). His belief is corrupted, and he mistreats me to a great extent.
My Master, I first like to request your prayer on my behalf, and second to ask for your suggestions on how to deal with this matter. Should I inform others of his corrupted thoughts or of his mistreatments to me? Or should I compromise and remain patient with him?”
Imam Javad (PBUH) wrote in his reply:
“I understand the situation between you and your father. Allah willing, I will not forget to pray for you, but do bear in mind that for you patience and good manners are far better than revealing (that which is bad). Do remember, after every hardship there will be relief. Be patient, and the good end belongs to the pious. May Allah keep you persistent in your love towards the Prophet’s progeny. We and you are under the shelter of Allah, and surely He will protect His sheltered people.”
Bakr continues: After this incident, my son in law’s father changed completely, and I never saw him disagree with his son’s beliefs from thereon.
