- I told to Imam Baqir (A.S): “What is the meaning of “truly, Ibrahim was awwah and patient”? He replied: “Awwah means (the one who is) praying (to) and wailing (for God) a lot.””
- “Two people, who have acted alike, enter the heaven, but one of them sees the other one in a higher place. Then, he says: O’ Lord! How come has he a superior place in comparison to me while we acted alike? God the Almighty replies: “because he asked Me (whatever he needed) and you did not do that”.
- “The most knowledgeable person to God is the one who asks more from Him”
- “Whoever prays a lot, the angels say: this voice is familiar (to us) and this is the prayer which is accepted and this is the need which is provided”
- “There is no servant who goes to a land and opens their hands and praises God and prays, unless God fills the land with his rewards, whether it is vast or tiny”
- If you knew god the way you should’ve known, Mountains definitely will be moved by your prayers.
- Crying out of fear of god is the key to his mercy, it’s a sign for his acceptance and it’s a door to answering (your prayers)
- Pray to god and believe in his answeres. But understand that god wont accept prays from an unwitting oblivious heart.
O’ Lord! This is the day in which You have honored us with the viceregency of Your Wali (guardian), Ali (Peace be upon him), and made him the Amir al-Muminin (the Commander of the Believers), and commanded us to confess his viceregency and obey him, and adhere to him- with what makes us close to You, and draws near to You- to his orders and prohibitions. O’ Lord! We have accepted Your orders and prohibitions, [and understood them] and obeyed Your Prophet, and we are surrendered and satisfied. We are the friends (supporters) of Ali -Peace be upon him- and his friends (supporters) as You have commanded, and we are the enemies of whoever is his enemy, and we are weary of whoever is weary of him. We hate whoever hates him and love those who love him, and Ali -Peace be upon him- is our Master as You have said and our Imam after our Prophet -Peace be upon him and his Household- as You have commanded.
