بسم الله الرحمان الرحيم

السلام عليكم و رحمة الله و بركاته

الحمد الله

قال زين العابدين رحمه الله

وَلي بَقايــا ذُنوبٍ لَسْتُ أَعْلَمُها *** الله يَعْلَمُهــا في السِّرِ والعَلَنِ
مـَا أَحْلَمَ اللهَ عَني حَيْثُ أَمْهَلَني *** وقَدْ تَمـادَيْتُ في ذَنْبي ويَسْتُرُنِي
تَمُرُّ سـاعـاتُ أَيّـَامي بِلا نَدَمٍ *** ولا بُكاءٍ وَلاخَـوْفٍ ولا حـَزَنِ
أَنَـا الَّذِي أُغْلِقُ الأَبْوابَ مُجْتَهِداً *** عَلى المعاصِي وَعَيْنُ اللهِ تَنْظُرُنـي
يَـا زَلَّةً كُتِبَتْ في غَفْلَةٍ ذَهَبَتْ *** يَـا حَسْرَةً بَقِيَتْ في القَلبِ تُحْرِقُني
دَعْني أَنُوحُ عَلى نَفْسي وَأَنْدِبُـهـا *** وَأَقْطَعُ الدَّهْرَ بِالتَّذْكِيـرِ وَالحَزَنِ

Zayn Al ‘Ābidīn (May Allah’s mercy be upon him) said,

I don’t know since when I have been committing sins, (only) Allah knows (what I did) in secret and public,

How Forbearing has Allah been with me with what he has given me! But indeed I have persisted in sinning but He has veiled me (i.e. me sinning),

I have spent hours of my days without regret, crying, fear or sadness,

I am the one who has striven to close the door for sins but the Eye of Allah is watching me,

O’ faults that have been written for me that have passed away in ignorance! O’ regret that has lingered in my heart burning me!

Leave me to wail and lament for myself and pass in time with its remembrance and sadness!”

A Poet once said,

لاَ تَعْمَلْ للِنَّاسِ شَيْئاً

وَ لاَ تَتْرُكْ لَهُمْ شَيْئاً

Don’t do anything for the sake of people!

And don’t leave anything because of them!”

One of the poets said,

عَرَفْتُ شَرْ لَا لِشَرْ **** لَكِنْ تُلَا فِيْهِ

وَ مَنْ لَا يَعْرِفُ شَرْ**** جَدِيْر أَنْ يَقَعَ فِيْهِ

“I learned evil not to indulge in it,
rather to abstain from it,
and whoever does not know what evil is,
it is likely that he will fall into it.”

A jurist is the one…

بسم الله الرمان الرحيم

السلام عيكم و رحمة الله و بركاته

الحمد الله

A poet said,

ليس الفقيه بنطقه و مقالهإن الفقيه هو الفقيه بفعله

و كذا الرئيس هو الرئيس بخلقه ليس الرئيس بمقامه و رجاله
و كذا الغني هو الغني بحاله ليس الغني بملكه و بماله

“A jurist is the one with action not with good speech or writings,

A leader is not the one who has status and (number of) men rather a leader is one with (good) mannerisms,

An opulent is not he who has dominion or wealth rather an opulent is the one with his condition (of Imaan).”
