Muharram Reflections: Imam Ali’s Testament to His Son (No. 7)

Peace, one and all…


In this passage Imam Ali (as) focuses on the true meaning of honour, generosity and contentment.

My son, there is no honour higher than Islam, and no generosity dearer than God-consciousness, and no protection more secure than piety, and no intercessor more successful than repentance, and no garment more beautiful than well-being, and no wealth can eliminate poverty more than contentment with one’s sustenance.

Ask olsun! May love increase!
