134 - In misfortunes, Mola Imam Jaafar e Sadiq (a.s) used to say

In misfortunes, Mola Imam Jaafar e Sadiq (a.s) used to say:

"All praise is due to Allah Who did not make my misfortune in my religious affairs. All praise is due to Allah Who could, if He willed, make my misfortune more catastrophic than what it is now. All praise is due to Allah for the matter that He willed to be, and it was as He willed."

132 - Friendship is nil unless its limits are kept

"Friendship is nil unless its limits are kept. He who does not keep these limits should not be regarded as friend. The first limit is that the inner self and the appearance should be identical. The second limit is that the friend should regard your goodness as his goodness and your evil as his evil. The third limit of friendship is that a position or fortunes should not change the friend's relation with his friends. The fourth limit is that the friend should not deprive his friend of anything that he is capable of doing. The fifth limit which is the most comprehensive, is that the friend should never leave his friend alone in calamities."

132 - The people that are most disrespected by Allah

"The people that are most disrespected by Allah are those who accuse Him. He who seeks Allah's decision and dissatisfies himself with it when it comes opposite to his will is accusing Allah. Then come those who complain against Allah. They are those who exaggerate in complaining about the misfortunes that they are suffering. Then come those who neglect showing gratitude when they are endowed with a grace and show intolerance when they are inflicted by a problem. The most respected people are those who show gratitude when they are given a grace and treat with their problems tolerantly."

130 - little permanent deed with conviction is more favorable to Allah

Mola Imam Jaafar e Sadiq (a.s) said to Humran-bin-A'yun:

"O Humran, look to him who is less powerful than you are and do not look at him who is more powerful so that you will be more satisfied with what Allah has allotted for you and will be a greater motive to deserve the Lord's increase. Know that little permanent deed with conviction is more favorable to Allah than the many deeds that are lacking conviction. You should know also that no piety is more profitable than avoiding committing the prohibited matters and the abstinence from harming and backbiting the believers. No living is more pleasant than good mannerism, no fortune is more advantageous than satisfaction with the sufficient and the little, and no ignorance is more harmful than self-conceit."

The Holy Prophet Rahmatallil Aalameen Hazrat Muhammad (s.a.w.w) said:

(On the Day of Judgment, a group would be seen in the most excellent and honourable of states. They would be asked if they were of the Angels or of the Prophets. In reply they would state):

"We are neither Angels nor Prophets but of the indigent ones from the ummah of Muhammad (S.A.W.)".

They would then be asked:

"How then did you achieve this lofty and honourable status?"

They would reply:

"We did not perform very many good deeds nor did we pass all the days in a state of fasting or all the nights in a state of worship but yes, we used to offer our (daily) prayers (regularly) and whenever we used to hear the mention of Muhammad (S.A.W.), tears would roll down our cheeks".
