(Bihar al- Anwar, Vol. 78 , P.102)

141 - A man told Imam Hussain (as): "I have built a 
new house. I like you to enter it and pray to God for me. 
Imam accepted. After entering the house, Imam had 
a look at it and said,” You have demolished your house 
and have built a larger and more luxurious house. People 
on the earth admire you and respect you for that house , 
while those up in the Heavens despise you. 

(Mustadrak al- Wasael , Vol. 3 , P. 467)

a profound inward

discussed when Imam said :" Man's intelligence 
would not be perfect unless truth is followed". 

(Bihar al- Anwar, Vol. 78 , P. 127)

he asked Imam Hussain : "What were you before 
the creation of Adam ? ". Imam replied : " We were spiritual lights

146 - Twelve Mahdis are to be from us. First of them is 
Amir al-Mo'menin Ali Ibn Abi Talib , and the last is the 
Imam who rises by justice. Through him, God will revive 
the earth after its death , and let the real belief overcome 
other beliefs , in spite of the polytheists' dislike. He has 
a long occultation ,during which some will abandon their faith , 
and some will firmly stay in their belief. Then, they will be 
annoyed and asked : " When will this promise be fulfilled, 
if you are telling the truth ? " Truly , whoever withstands 
annoyance and denial of others during the occultation of Mahdi 
is like the one who fights by sword alongside the Prophet (pbuh ). 

(Bihar al- Anwar, Vol. 51, p. 133)

147 - Imam (as) was asked what virtue is. He said : 
" Holding your tongue, and good deed." Then he was 
asked what defect is. He said : " Involving yourself in a futile task." 

(Mustadrak al-Wasael , vol. 9 , P. 24)
