Fictional Reality... expressive silence in a free society.

"The best of deeds are those which are the most difficult" (Usul al-Kafi, vol. iv, p. 9.).

For instance, waking up for the sake of praying to God Almighty in the biting cold of a winter night and sacrificing the delights of sound sleep makes the soul triumphant over the body and strengthens the will. Though it is a bit difficult and unpleasant in the beginning, but after a little practice, its hardship and inconvenience becomes lesser and lesser and the subservience of the body to the soul grows.

We see the people who perform it doing all this without any trouble, and if we are lazy and find it difficult, it is because we do not take action. But if we force ourselves to act, gradually the difficulty turns into ease.

– Imam Khomeini (r), 40 Hadith (via al-sabur)

If you’re a muslim and you don’t know about the day of Mubahila, you’ve been wronged by your religious community,
If you know it but it’s not significant to you, you’ve wronged yourself.

“Once you lose me, you will see many things from the hands of the unbelievers, the enemies, the selfish people who will belittle God’s right and threaten your life. Then you will wish death. Once this happens you should unite together and do not divide up into several groups. You should adhere to God’s Strong Rope.”

Amirul Mo’minin Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib (ع) al-Khisal p. 1088 (via shiaislam)

“The decline of empires is evinced by four things: neglecting the principles and core values and justice and equity, clinging to vanities, promotion of the wicked and demotion of the virtuous.”

Amirul Mo’minin Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib (ع) Ghurar al-Hikam p. 397, h. 6 (via shiaislam)
