Imam Ali (a.s.) said, in his epistle to Malik al-Ashtar: ‘And if you make a covenant between yourself and your enemy or give him a surety [against life or property], then stand by your pact with loyalty and observe your liability with trustworthiness. Make yourself the shield for your word, for there is nothing from Allah’s mandates that all people agree upon, despite their diverse opinions on everything else, as much as they do with regards to respecting the fulfilment of covenants.’
‘The greatest right of God against you is that you worship Him without associating anything with Him. When you do that with sincerity (ikhlas), He has made it binding upon Himself to give you sufficiency in the affair of this world and the next.’
‘O son of Adam, you will always be with the good…as long as fear [of Allah] is your motto and grief your cloak.’
Imam al-Baqir (a.s.) said to Salama b. Kuhayl and al-Hakam b. ‘Autayba, ‘Go to the east and go to the west but you will never find true knowledge except for what comes from us, the household of the Prophet.’
‘The best act of common courtesy is that which good people are able to benefit from.’
‘A learned man’s sleep is better than the prayer of a devout.’
‘He who looks at a believer with a look that scares him, Allah, most High, will scare him on the Day when no shade will avail except His Shade.’
‘A fasting person’s sleep is worship, his silence is glorification of Allah, his good deeds are accepted, and his supplication is answered.’
