al-Rida Ali quotes
The miserly one is never restful; the envious is never pleased; the grumbler is never loyal; the liar has no conscience.
Ali al-Rida
He who takes himself to account gets benefitted, and the one who gets negligent and careless about himself bears loss. The one who fears (Allah) becomes peaceful, and the one who takes lesson becomes most clear sighted and discerning. He who becomes most clear sighted, understands; and he who understands and comprehends becomes knowledgeable and informed.
Ali al-Rida quotes
