Imam Hassan (AS) said: O people, he who advises for Allah's sake and betakes His sayings as guidance will surely be led to the most upright way and Allah will grant him success to the right guidance and will direct him to the best. The disciple of Allah is certainly secured and preserved while His enemy is surely fearful and disappointed. Be cautious of Allah by very much mention of Him, fear Him by means of God-fearing, and approach to Him through obedience to Him, for He is surely near and replying.

Allah the Blessed the Elevated says: If any of My servants asks you about Me, tell them that the Lord says, "I am near; I accept the prayers of those who pray." Let My servants answer My call and believe in Me so that perhaps they may know the right direction. (Holy Qur'an,2:186)

Answer Allah and believe in Him because it is improper for any one who acknowledges Allah's greatness to behave arrogantly. The sublimity of those who acknowledge Allah's greatness is certainly their modesty, the dignity of those who acknowledge Allah's majesty is their submission to Him, and the safety of those who acknowledge Allah's power is to acquiesce to Him and to avoid denying after acknowledgment and deviating after guidance.

You should know convectively that you will not recognize God-fearing before you realize the character of guidance, you will not hold on the bond of the Book before you know those who deserted it, and you will not recite the Book so properly before you know those who distorted it. After you know all these, you will know heresies and overacting, will see forgery against Allah and distortion, and will know how the declining ones fell. Let not the ignorant engage you in their ignorance.

Seek these from their proper people, for they are surely the light by which enlightenment is sought and the leaders whose examples should be followed. By them, knowledge survives and ignorance fades away. Their clemency refers to their ignorance, their utterance of wisdom refers to their silence, and their appearance refers to their hidden.

They neither oppose the right nor do they disagree about it. Different traditions existed before them and Allah's decision passed before them. This is surely a reminder for those who mention. When you hear it you should understand it heedfully, not just for relation. The relaters are certainly numerous while the heedful are few. Allah is the One Whose help is sought.

His Admonition

You should know that Allah has not created you vainly and will not let you pass to nothing. He limited your terms of death and arranged your livings so that every intelligent will realize his actual position and realize that whatever Allah has disposed for him will unavoidably befall him and whatever is taken away from him will never hit him.

Allah has saved you from running after the sustenance of this world, given you all the time for worshipping Him, urged you thanking Him, ordained you to mention Him, advised you to fear Him, and made fear of Him the utmost purpose of His satisfaction. Certainly, God-fearing is the door to all repentance, the head of all wisdom, and the honor of all actions. God-fearing is the means by which triumph is achieved.

(Allah says: The pious ones will be triumphant.) (Holy Qur'an 78:31)

(Allah will save the pious ones because of their virtuous deeds. No hardship will touch them nor will they be grieved.) (Holy Qur'an 39:61).

O servants of Allah, fear Allah and know that he whoever fears Allah will have an exit from seditious matters and Allah will direct him in his affairs, prepare for his guidance, support him with argument, whiten his face, and achieve all his hopes with those whom receive Allah's grace, such as the prophets, the veracious, the martyrs, and the virtuous. They are the best friends one can have.
