"The seven heavens and the earth and whatever is in them exalt Him. And there is not a thing except that it exalts [Allah] by His praise, but you do not understand their [way of] exalting. Indeed, He is ever Forbearing and Forgiving."

"

God said, “It is not because he is despicable that I delay My gift to him: That very delay is an aid.

His need brought him from heedlessness to Me, pulling him by the hair to My lane.

Were I to satisfy his need, he would go back and immerse himself in that game.

Although he laments to the bottom of his soul: ‘Oh Thou whose protection is sought!’

Let him weep with a broken heart and wounded breast.

For I am pleased by his voice, his saying, ‘Oh God!’ and by his secret prayers.

People cage parrots and nightingales to hear the sound of their sweet songs.

But how should they put crows and owls into cages? Who indeed has heard tale of that?

Know for certain that this is the reason the believers suffer disappointment in good and evil.

"We have indeed revealed this (Message) in the Night of Power:
And what will explain to thee what the night of power is?
The Night of Power is better than a thousand months.
Therein come down the angels and the Spirit by Allah’s permission, on every errand:
Peace!…This until the rise of dawn!"

"There was certainly in their stories a lesson for those of understanding. Never was the Qur’an a narration invented, but a confirmation of what was before it and a detailed explanation of all things and guidance and mercy for a people who believe."

"

Why do we think Imam Ali (as) is a perfect human being?

Because he felt society’s pain, and his ‘I’ had become ‘we’. His personality attracted all others. He was not an individual separated from others. He was a limb or an organ of a whole body. He himself said that a pain in one part of society, as in a body, made itself felt in the other parts, one of which was himself…

….[Imam Ali] describes his own life and says that he felt other people’s pain more than his own, and their pain prevented him from feeling his own. His words show that he was a truly learned and wise sage. Yet the reason why we honor him so deeply is not only because of his wide knowledge, but because he was human.
