Golden Sayings of Imam Hussain (AS) part 2..

Golden Sayings of Imam Hussain (AS) part 2..

14 - If the world is counted valuable; surely the house of God's
rewards is higher and more worthy. If bodies were created for death;
surely being killed with swords in the way of God is a more
honorable death. If the share of daily sustenance, of each 
creature is provided by the creator, surely it is not decent
for man to be greedy for gaining and eating too much.. 
If wealth is amassed for one day to be left. Then why a free man
becomes so miser on something he has to leave. 

(Bihar al- Anwar, Vol. 44, P. 374)

15 - If you don't believe in any religion and don't fear 
the Resurrection Day, at least be free in this world.

(Bihar al- Anwar, Vol. 45, P. 51)

16 - Those who worship God for the hope of gaining , they're not
real worshippers ,they're merchants. Those who worship 
God out of fear ( of punishment ) , they're slaves. And 
those who worship God to be grateful towards their creator , 
they are the free people , and their worship is a real one. 

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

17 - Beware that the need of people to you is among the blessings of
God to you. So do not scare away the needy people when they 
come to you, as the God's blessings will return and 
go elsewhere. 

(Bihar al- Anwar, Vol. 78, P. 121) 

18 - O' people take a lesson from the advice that God gave to
His true believers, among which reproaching the Jewish scholars
where he said:" Why do Jewish scholars not prohibit their people 
from saying sinful words? "And also (the Almighty) said:" 
Those who turned into atheists, from among the descendants of Israel,
were cursed... his Almighty added:" certainly evil 
was that which they did. "Surely the God criticized them 
for they turned a blind eye to what they saw of evil and corruption 
from the tyrants of their time out of greed or fear. 
The Almighty God says: " Do not fear people, rather, fear me!
The Almighty said: The believing men and the believing women,
they are guardians of each other; they enjoin good and forbid evil.

� (Tohaf-al- Uqoul , P. 237) 

19 - Whoever seeks the satisfaction of people through disobedience 
of God; Then God subjects him to people. 

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

20 - Avoid oppressing the one who does not have any
supporter against you, other than the Almighty God. 

(Bihar al- Anwar, Vol. 78, P. 118)

21 - One who reveals your faults to you like a mirror is
your true friend, and one who flatters you and covers up 
your faults is your enemy. 

(Bihar al- Anwar, Vol. 78 , P. 128)
