A little collection of Imam al-Jawad (A) maxims

By: Faez Karimi

29 Dhol-Qada marks the martyrdom anniversary of Al-Imam Muhammad Taqy Al-Javad (p), ninth infallible imam from the holy progeny of holy Prophet (p). He was 25 years old at the time of his martyrdom.

A little collection of his sayings is:

Put your head on steadfastness, embrace poverty, reject the lusts, oppose your passions, and know that you cannot be out of Godís sight.

Delay of repentance is deception, excessive procrastination is perplexity, arrogance against God is perdition, and insistence on sins is security against Godís unexpected retribution.

No one can consider himself secure from the retribution of God except those who are lost.

Godís increasing gifts will be stopped when the servants stop showing Him gratitude.

  "Knowledge is better than wealth because it protects you while you have to guard wealth. it decreases if you keep on spending it but the more you make use of knowledge ,the more it increases . what you get through wealth disappears as soon as wealth disappears but what you achieve through knowledge will remain even after you."MORE ..
