الْمُؤمِنُ یَحْتاجُ إلى ثَلاثِ خِصالٍ: تَوْفیقٍ مِنَ اللّهِ عَزَّوَجَلَّ، وَ واعِظٍ مِنْ نَفْسِهِ، وَقَبُولٍ مِمَّنْ یَنْصَحُ

(بحار‌الانوار، ج75، ص358)

1. Every believer needs three qualities: grace from Allah Almighty, a preacher inside himself, and acceptance of the advice of others.

 

إیّاکَ وَ مُصاحَبَةُ الشَّریرِ، فَإنَّهُ کَالسَّیْفِ الْمَسْلُولِ، یَحْسُنُ مَنْظَرُهُ وَ یَقْبَحُ أثَرُهُ

(بحار‌الانوار، ج71، ص198)

2. Avoid the friendship of evil people, because an evil person is like a poisonous sword which looks beautiful yet its effects are ugly and dangerous.

 

 

مَن لَم يَعرِفِ المَوارِدَ أعيَتهُ المَصادِرُ

(مسند الامام الجواد، ص 243)

3. He who does not know how to step into a way, will be devastated when stepping out.

 

عِزُّ الْمُؤْمِنِ غِناه عَنِ النّاسِ

(بحارالانوار، ج72، ص109)

4. The dignity of the believer lies in his disinterest towards the riches of others.

 

مَنْ أصْغى إلى ناطِقٍ فَقَدْ عَبَدَهُ، فَإنْ کانَ النّاطِقُ عَنِ اللّهِ فَقَدْ عَبَدَ اللّهَ، وَ إنْ کانَ النّاطِقُ یَنْطِقُ عَنْ لِسانِ إبلیس فَقَدْ عَبَدَ إبلیسَ

(کافی، ج6، ص434)

5. Anyone interested in a speaker will be his servant, so if the speaker spoke of Allah he would be Allah’s servant, and if the speaker spoke on behalf of Satan he would be Satan’s servant.

 

لَوْ سَکَتَ الْجاهِلُ مَا اخْتَلَفَ النّاسُ

(بحارالانوار، ج75، ص81)

6. Had the ignorant chosen to be silent, people would not be divided by dissension.

 

مَنِ اسْتَحْسَنَ قَبیحاً کانَ شَریکاً فیهِ

(بحارالانوار، ج75، ص82)

7. Anyone who praised an ugly deed [or word] would have a share in it.

 

لَنْ یَسْتَکْمِلَ الْعَبْدُ حَقیقَةَ الاْیمانِ حَتّى یُؤْثِرَ دینَهُ عَلى شَهْوَتِهِ، وَلَنْ یُهْلِکَ حَتّى یُؤْثِرَ شَهْوَتَهُ عَلى دینِ

(بحارالانوار، ج75، ص81)

8. A servant of Allah would never find the truth of faith until he preferred the rulings of his religion over his desires, and he would never be succumb until he preferred his desires to the rulings of his religion.

 

ثَلاثُ خِصالٍ تَجْتَلِبُ بِهِنَّ الْمَحَبَّةُ: الاْنْصافُ فِى الْمُعاشَرَةِ، وَ الْمُواساةُ فِى الشِّدِّةِ، وَ الاْنْطِواعُ وَ الرُّجُوعُ إلى قَلْبٍ سَلیمٍ

(بحارالانوار، ج75، ص82)

9. Three qualities will make you adored by others: fairness when treating them, commiseration with their distress, and seeking a spiritual heart.

 

التَّوْبَةُ عَلى أرْبَع دَعائِم: نَدَمٌ بِالْقَلْبِ، وَاسْتِغْفارٌ بِاللِّسانِ، وَ عَمَلٌ بِالْجَوارِحِ، وَ عَزْمٌ أنْ لایَعُودَ

(کشف‌الغمه، ج2، ص349)

10. Repentance would be accepted by four signs: feeling regret at heart, seeking forgiveness by tongue (Istighfar), seeking compensation through deeds, and a serious decision not to repeat the sin.
