then We relegated him to the lowest of the low,

except those who have faith and do righteous deeds. There will be an everlasting reward for them. (95.6)

Prophet Muhammed (saaww)
“Fast, you’ll be healthy”
“When you fast, let your ears, your
eyes, your hair, your skin and all your body fast too.
Do not let your fasting day be the same as non-fasting ones.”
Imam Jafer Al Sadiq
“O you who believe! Fasting is
prescribed to you as it was prescribed to
those before you that you may gain self-restraint.”
Quran-2:183
“God has made fasting compulsory
so that the rich shall find the pain of hunger so
they have a mercy upon the poor.”
Imam Hassan Al Askari (as)
“One who proceeds on a path in the
pursuit of knowledge, God makes him proceed therewith
on a path to the Garden (Paradise). Verily, every creature of the heaven and the earth asks forgiveness for the seeker of knowledge, even the fish in the sea. The merit of the ‘alim (the learned) over the ‘abid (the devout) is like the merit of the moon over the stars on a full-moon night.
Prophet Muhammed (saaww)

Who was he?
my desires do not control me,
I control my desires
"For indeed it is not the eyes that grow blind, but it is
the hearts, which are within the bosoms, that grow blind
." (22.46)
"Then woe unto those whose
hearts are hardened
against remembrance of God." (39.22)
"Then your
hearts hardened after that
; so they are like stones, or even harder. " (2.74)
The Holy Quran
""The day when wealth and sons avail not (any man). Save him who bringeth unto God a
whole heart
" (26.88-89)
"And whosoever believes in God, He
guides his heart
. And God is knower of all things." (64.11)
"Paradise will be brought near for the pious ones. This is what you were promised. It is for everyone who turned in repentance to God, kept his promise, feared the Beneficent God in secret, and turned to Him with a
repenting heart.
" (10.57)
"Every one who lacks
self restraint
and
piety
will have a
dead heart
; whoever have a dead heart will enter Hell."
Imam Ali (as):
"Learn the Holy Quran because, it is the best of learning; pay attention towards its verses because they are like the springs rain;
its recital revives the heart
; and utilize the Quranic illumination for the
healing of your hearts
."
Imam Ali (a.s):
Nahjul al-Balagha, sermon-110
