Muhammad al-Baqir


Fifth Twelver Sh?Ďah Im?m, grandson of Husayn, and second generation grandson of Muhammad.
Muhammad al-Baqir
Whoevers tongue utters the truth, his practise becomes purified; and the one whose intention is decent and good, his sustenance increases; and whoever adopts good attitude and decent behavior with his family, his life span lengthens.
al-Baqir quotes
Indeed, when a man earns wealth from a haraam (prohibited source) - neither Hajj, nor Umra, nor strengthening of his blood kinship, is ever at all accepted or approved. By God, Almighty.
al-Baqir
There is no drop more loved by God than a teardrop that falls in the dark of the night from fear of God, meant solely for Him and no one else.




al-Baqir Muhammad quotes
The scholar whose knowledge is made use of and benefited from, is worthier and more virtuous than seventy thousand worshippers and adorers.
al-Baqir Muhammad
There is no strength higher than overcoming carnal desire.
Muhammad al-Baqir quotes
The person who loves for the sake of God, and detests and despises for the sake of God, and gives for the sake of God, is among those whose faith has achieved completion.
Muhammad al-Baqir
Learn knowledge and science from him who teaches it, even if he doesn't practice what he preaches.
al-Baqir Muhammad quotes
Take the good speech from whoever said it even if his practice was not accordingly.
al-Baqir
Indeed, the most terrifically sorry of all the people on the day of resurrection, will be the servant who defines and shows the way of justice to the people, while he himself opposes it.
al-Baqir Muhammad
Beware of sluggishness, annoyance and impatience, since they are the keys of all the evils. The person who commits sluggishness and slackness never at all discharges any rights (obligations); and the one who gets annoyed and restless, does never at all remain patient over the right (God's decree on him).
Muhammad al-Baqir
The person who teaches one chapter of guidance to the people will have a reward similar to all those who would act upon it, and nothing would be lessened or subtracted from the reward of those who practise it; and the one who teaches a chapter of misguidance, he will have the burden similar to each one who acts upon it, and nothing will be lessened from their burden of sin.




Muhammad al-Baqir quotes
By Allah no one is our Sh?Ďah except that he has piety for God and obeys him. They (the Sh?Ďah) are not known and recognized except for their humility, modesty, fear of God, trustworthiness, plenty of remembrance of God, fasting, service, kindness to the parents, looking after the poor neighbours and afflicted people, mentioning them with nothing except goodness and beneficence; and they are the trustees for their tribes in all the affairs.
Muhammad al-Baqir
On the Day of Judgement, God will interrogate people according to the wisdom he has granted them.
al-Baqir quotes
Being sociable and affable with people brings kindness and friendship.
al-Baqir Muhammad
Three things destroy a man: considering his own deeds to be really great, forgetting the sins that have been committed, considering his own opinion to be the highest.
al-Baqir Muhammad quotes
Our followers are of three kinds: one who follows us but depends on others; one who is like a glass involved in his own reflections; but the best are those who are like gold, the more they suffer the more they shine.
Muhammad al-Baqir
Consider the world as an abode where in you have dropped down for an hour, then you have got to leave it and go ahead; or (suppose it is) like the wealth which you lay hands upon in a dream and become over-joyed and glad. Then you wake up to find yourself empty handed.
Muhammad al-Baqir quotes
Goodness to parents, and paying visits to ones own relatives, will ease the accounting on the Day of Judgement.
Muhammad al-Baqir
There is no pain worse than ignorance and lack of intellegence.
al-Baqir Muhammad
Opposition of one's desires is the sign of the highest level of wisdom in a human being.
