Peace, one and all…

In our third passage from this profound document, Imam Ali (as) explores detachment and simplicity.

My son, the honour of the one of faith is his detachment from others. Simplicity is wealth that is never exhausted and whoever remembers death is content with little of this world.  Whoever knows that his words are part of his deeds will speak little except of what is useful.

Ask olsun! May love increase!
