A little collection of quotes from Imam Al-Hadi (pbuh)
Imam Ali Naqi Al-Hadi (A.S.), the tenth
infallible descendant of holy Prophet Muhammad (S.W.),
brightened the world with his appearance on Rajab 5. He
inherited his knowledge, righteousness and piety from his
forefathers. Imam (A.S.) was martyred by poisoning by the

A brief selection from Imam (A.S.)ís sayings is:
*~> There are definite places in which Allah likes the
servants to supplicate to Him. One of these places is the tomb
of Al-Hussein: Master of the Martyrs (A.S.).
*~> Others will fear him who fears Allah; He who obeys Allah
will be obeyed; He who obeys Allah will not care for the
dissatisfaction of the creatures; He who enrages the Creator
should be sure of encountering the dissatisfaction of the
*~> No one can describe Allah with attributes other than these
with which He describes Himself. How can anyone describe Him
when senses are too short to perceive Him, illusions are too
short to comprehend Him, ideas are too short to mark Him, and
sights are too short to appreciate Him? He is remote in His
nearness and near in His remoteness. He created the how
without being asked "How?" and founded the where without being
asked "where?" He is out of how and where. He is the One and
Only. Exalted be His Majesty and sacred be His Names.
*~> He who feels secure from Allah's unexpected retribution
and painful penalty will feel arrogant until Allah's act and
inevitable decree (death) will befall him. He whomever
receives evidence from his Lord will belittle the worldly
misfortunes even if he is cut into pieces.
*~> The neglector of the Bismillah is as same of the neglector
of the (obligatory) prayers.
*~> The thankful of a grace should be happy for thankfulness
more than it is for the grace.
*~> Allah has made this world for testing while He has made
the life to come for receiving the result. He has also made
the misfortunes of this world the cause of gaining the rewards
of the life to come and made the rewards of the life to come
as the compensation for the misfortunes of this world.
*~> You should present thorough obedience to those who present
for you their thorough love and advice.
*~> Do not expect honesty and purity of intention from someone
who has suffered from your malice; do not expect loyalty from
one to whom you have been disloyal; do not expect goodwill
from someone whom you regard with ill-will: his heart towards
you is the same as your heart towards him.

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
