In our eighth installment, Imam Ali (as) counsels his son against covetousness, and against giving in to the ego.

My son, covetousness is the key to weariness and the way to toil, and it leads to the irruption of sins. Voraciousness contains all faults. It is sufficient training of your nafs to heed what you would not want done to you by others.

Ask olsun! May love increase
