imam ali quote

يَأْتِي عَلَى النَّاسِ زَمَانٌ لاَ يَبْقى مِنَ الْقُرآنِ إِلاَّ رَسْمُهُ، وَمِنَ الْإِسْلاَمِ إِلاَّ اسْمُهُ، مَسَاجِدُهُمْ يَوْمَئِذٍ عَامِرَةٌ مِنَ البنَاء، خَالية مِنَ الْهُدَى

A time will come upon people in which the only remaining thing from Quran is its writing, and the only remaining thing from Islam is its name. Their mosques are well established but are empty of spirituality.

—  Imam Ali (as)

“Hate no one, no matter how much they’ve wronged you. Live humbly, no matter how wealthy you become. Think positively, no matter how hard life is. Give much, even if you’ve been given little. Keep in touch with the ones who have forgotten you, and forgive who has wronged you, and do not stop praying for the best for those you love.” -Imam Ali (a.s)

Belief means that you should prefer truth (even) when it harms you rather than falsehood (even) when it benefits you, that your words should not be more than your action and that you should fear Allah when speaking about others.
—  Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib (as),
Nahjal-Balagha (Peak of Eloquence)

“Avoid oppressing the one who does not have any supporter against you, other than the Almighty God.” -Imam Hussain (a.s)
