Golden Sayings of Imam Hussain (AS) Part-7

70 - Yazid , the natural son of an illegitimate has placed me in a dilemma , 
drawing my sword and fighting or being humiliated by allegiance to him. 
But it is impossible for us to be humiliated , God , his messenger , 
the believers, my respectable family would not prefer obedience to mean 
people. To dying with glory. 

(Bihar al- Anwar, Vol. 45 , P. 83)

71 - Those who seek to win God's favor and satisfaction, no matter 
if it evokes people's wrath , God will make them dispense with people. 
But those who win contentment of people at the cost of enraging God , 
the Almighty will make them dependent upon people. 

(Bihar al- Anwar, Vol. 78 , P. 126)

72 - Best of wealth is that with which one protects his fame and dignity. 

(Bihar al- Anwar, Vol. 44 , P. 195)

73 - Swear by God , I did not rise against the tyrannical rule of Bani Omayah 
out of selfishness or with the aim of oppression or corruption. My revolt only 
aimed at reviving the religion of my grandfather , the holy Mohammad and 
the traditions of my father Ali ibn-Abi Talib , to enjoy good and forbid evil. 
So, whoever accepts me by accepting the truth , surely God rewards him 
for supporting the truth. And whoever rejects me , I will be patient until 
God judges between me and these people justly. Surely , His Almighty is 
the Best Judge of the judges. 

(Bihar al- Anwar Vol. 44 ", P 329)

74 - ( Since the world is mortal,) imagine as if there has been no world 
from the beginning ; and ( since the here after is eternal ) as if it has 
ever been existing. 

(Bihar al- Anwar, Vol. 45 , P. 87)

75 - Swearing by my own soul : Imam can be nobody except the one 
who rules according to Koran , rises for justice, affiliates to the true religion 
and contains himself to all that for the sake of God. 

(Bihar al- Anwar, Vol. 44 , P. 334)

76 - Those who worship God sincerely will be rewarded far more than 

what they had wished and even more than what they deserve. 

(Bihar al- Anwar, Vol. 71 , P. 184)

77 - Association with the wicked people is evilness , and association with 
the corrupted people brings doubts to oneself. 

(Bihar al- Anwar, Vol. 78 , P. 122)

78 - Imam Hussain(as) said : " whoever comes to us will find at least one of
 these four : 1)he will hear sound reasoning , 2) will see fair judgement , 
3) will face a helpful brother , and 4) will enjoy the company of learned men."

(Bihar al- Anwar, Vol. 44 , P. 195)

79 - Imam Hussain (as) said to a man who was backbiting someone 
in Imam's presence : " Stop this evil act , for your backbiting 
will be the food of dogs in the hell." 

(Bihar al- Anwar, Vol. 78 , P. 117)

80 - Sometimes God Almighty showers a man with grace and favor , 
instead depriving him of the blessing of being grateful , this is how 
God tests his mortals. 

(Bihar al- Anwar, Vol. 78 , P. 117)

81 - "Those stingy people who economize on even greeting are real misers." 

(Bihar al- Anwar, Vol. 78 , P. 120)
