Amir-u1-Mominin Mow1a Murtaza A1i (A.S.) says in His Holy
Qalams: Those who are tempted by wealth are never satisfied in
their hearts, even if the wealth of the whole world is given to
them. Their eyes remain thirsty of seeing more and more wealth.
A remedy for this situation, that is, a remedy for tempted eyes
is the graveyard. When the sand of the grave yard goes into the
eyes of the person having temptation, then and only then, does
his temptation subside. A tempted person ruins himself. The
heart of a tempted person remains as that of a beggar's. As a
result, a tempted person loses his reputation. A tempted person
is totally untrustworthy and therefore no one listens to him.
He discredits his own next seven generations. The life of a
tempted person is totally disgraceful. A person having
temptations ruins both lives, that is, the life of this world
and the eternal life. A person who lends money with the
temptation of gaining high interest, feels miserable, in case
the principle and the interest is unpaid. Even if he decides to
sue the debtor, he remains disturbed. The mind of a tempted
person always remains at unrest. He has no peace of mind and
lacks happiness in life. Even the great physician, Luqman,
attempted to cure a greedy and tempted personís fire of the
heart but could not extinguish it. This is because the love of a
tempted and greedy person for this material world is extreme.
The remedy for such persons is with MURSHID QAMIL, the SHAH AND
PIR. If such persons surrender to Him completely, then the
MURSHID QAMIL can cure their hearts. A tempted person is always
humiliated but he is unaware of the fact. He is degraded and
loses his spiritual dignity. His greediness and temptations keep
him away from doing good deeds in life. As a result, a tempted
person sinks day by day. It is the most deplorable state of his
Amir-u1 Mominin Mow1a Murtaza Ali (A.S.) says: Beware of
persons praising someone for the sake of gaining material
benefits. Such persons have temptations in their hearts. One
should say SHUKRAN LILLAH (THANKS) to Allah when anything is
received. Never praise anyone except Allah. Never keep
temptations in your hearts.
People who are tempted with this world are unhappy. The only
remedy for them is to avoid temptation.
0 Momins, when you find your life-boat involved in a storm,
better direct it towards the shore. Anyone who directs his life-
boat towards the right direction, that means avoids temptation,
will never be unhappy. He will be every time gay and cheerful.
0 Momins, avoid temptation and greediness. Perform IBADAT
BANDAGI regularly and do a charity. Bad actions discredits the
name and the reputation. By good reputation becomes good.
By good actions one can know ALLAH. ALLAH-SUBHAN is in the
hearts of all.
0 Momins, understand this most important factor and respect
all people. If you will act in this way, ALLAH-RAHEMAN will be
pleased with you and shower His DIVINE GRACE upon you.
