Piety And Divine Guardianship

About divine guardianship, God says: “Surely the unjust are friends of each other, and Allah is the guardian of those who guard (against evil).” [2]

22) Piety And Divine Guidance

God says: “These (the pious) are on a right course from their Lord and these it is that shall be successful.” [3]  

[1] Bihar al-Anwar, vol. 67, P. 293.
[2] Qur'an, 45:19.
[3] Qur'an, 2:5.

23) Piety Is Never Undermined

Imam Ali (AS) has said, “He who is strong rooted in piety does not come to destruction, and the plantation of a people based on piety never remains without water.” [1]

Imam Ali (AS) means that the life of one that is based on piety, will not be ruined with negative propaganda in the same way that plantation based on piety will never get burnt down.

24) Piety Is Never Ignored

Imam Ali (AS) has also said: “Action accompanied with fear of Allah does not fail, and how can a thing fail that has been accepted?!” [2]

25) Piety, A Wealth

Imam Sadiq (AS) has been reported by Ya’qoob ibn Shu’aib as saying: “God does not promote a servant from the humiliation of sins to the honor of piety, except that He makes him rich without wealth, honorable without tribe, and a friend of Him without friends of people.” [3]

26) Piety, Cure For All

Imam Ali (AS) says: “Certainly, fear of Allah is the medicine for your hearts, sight for the blindness of your spirits, the cure for the ailments of your bodies, the rectifier of the evils of your breasts, the purifier of the pollution of your minds, the light of the darkness of your eyes, the consolation for the fear of your heart and the brightness for the gloom of your ignorance.” [4]  

[1] Nahj al-Balaghah, P. 669.
[2] Ibid., P. 1129.
[3] Wasa’il al-Shiah, vol. 11, P. 190.
[4] Nahj al-Balaghah, P. 635.

27) Piety, A Divine Grace

The Holy Quran says: “…and be careful of (your duty) to Allah, Allah teaches you.” [1]

The Holy prophet (SAW) has been reported as saying: “Fight against your passions so that your hearts will be filled with wisdom.” [2]

This concept proves the worth and the importance of piety which makes the wild and troublesome knowledge easy for human beings. With piety, man can easily get to know the mysteries in sciences as if these people are inspired with knowledge.  

[1] Qur'an, 2:282.
[2] Ten Discourses, P. 26.
