"If you want to test someone’s character, give him respect. If he has good character, he will respect you more, if he has bad character, he will think he is the best of all."

— Imam Ali Ibn Abi Talib (a)

Does this have a source? I keep on seeing it shared if it has no source please don’t say ‘Imam Ali (ع)’ but say ‘Ascribed to imam Ali (ع)’. Since I research this and I couldn’t find anything. If someone can please do tell me. If there is no source is a great sin to say its from Him (ع).

"O Ali, He who discards (departs) from me has discarded himself from Allah, and he who discards himself from you has discarded himself from me."

Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وآله). Source is found in several books of the Mukhālifeen (Ahul Al-Sunāh), such as:

Fadhā’īl Al-Sahābā, V.2, Pg.570, H.962; Al-Hākim, Al-Mustādrāk, V.3, Pg.123; Al-Thahābi, Al-Mizān Al-‘Itidāl, V.1, Pg. 323; Al-Hathāmi, Mujm’ā, V.9, Pg.135; Muhib Al-Tabāri, Al-Riyādh Al-Nāthirāh, v.2, Pg.167; Kanz Al-‘Ummāl, V.6, Pg.157

Benefits of Invoking Lā’nāh

The benefits of invoking curses (Lā’nāh) upon the enemies of Allah (swt). In the Quran, Allah (swt) uses “La’n” in various forms in approximelty 32 different verses. These verses range from Allah’s curse, angels, Prophets, as well as the servants of Allah on this Earth. Hence, we can conclude that Lā’nāh has great benefits to the invokator of the curse, for why would Allah (swt) do something without reason?

We read in our narrations the several good deeds that are recorded when sending a curse upon the enemy. We also read that one of the biggest crimes is to send a curse upon a believer. Since these curses are kept for the enemies of Allah.

As an example, I present to you with this narration I had translated from Tāfsīr Al-‘Ayyāshi:

Muhāmmād b. Mās’ood Al-‘Ayāāshi in his Tāfsīr with his Isnād on authority of the Thiqāt Zurārāh, from Abu ‘Abdullāh (عليه السلام), he said concerning the following words in the Holy Qurān, ‘He who brings forth a Hasānah (Good Deed), his Hasānah will be multiplied.’ Imam (عليه السلام) said, “He who remembers them (Abu Bakr & Omār) and curses (Lā’nāh) them, Allah will write for him seventy Hasanāt and erase from him ten bad deeds and raise him ten levels (in heaven). (2)

(1) Surāh Al-An’ām, Verse 160
(2) Tāfsīr al-‘Ayāāshī, V.1, Pg.387; Al-Bihār, V.30, P.222; Al-Muhtādhr, Pg.35

Note: This is one out of 100’s of examples. We read in sahifa al-Sajadyia a similar example where the number is 70,000 and in some narrations 10,000. You can find a similar longer version in Basā’ir Al-Darajāt.

For Arabic source:

محمد بن مسعود العياشي في تفسيره, عن زرارة عن أبي عبد الله (ع) قال: {من جاء بالحسنة فله عشر أمثالها}[١] قال: من ذكرهما فلعنهما كل غداة كتب الله له سبعين حسنة, ومحى عنه عشر سيئات, ورفع له عشر درجات. [٢].

[١] سورة الأنعام, الآية 160.
[٢] تفسير العياشي ج1 ص387، عنه البحار ج30 ص222، المحتضر ص35.

Quote
"The house of Sayyida Al-Zahra (س) is so quiet now. No Ali, no Zahra just tears now. Eid approaches and young Zaynab is in pain. After her mother she watched her father slain. Drenched from the blood of his head. Zaynab cried as Ali bled."

The Holy Month is Upon Us: Waste not One Minute

This Holy Month comes once in a year. Furthermore, who says we will be breathing to witness it’s greatness next year.

Don’t waste these Holy hours. Allah (عز) has given us several perks such as: Our breathing equal glorification of Allah (Tasbih) & our sleep is Worship (Ibādāh). The angels in this month work over time in recording these constant blessings. Bring smiles to there faces and follow what the Holy Messenger (ص) said in his sermon, where he mentioned the most important act is to stay away from what Allah has made unlawful.

Bless All in this Holy Month

Your sinful brother in faith - keep me in your Siyām & Qiyām.
