SHAFAQNA – It is narrated from Imam Jawad (AS) who said: Three factors are needed for a believer to travel the route of belief to accomplishment; first divine grace, second a warner from inside and third acceptance of true advice by others. In the above narration, anything that is out of human’s control is called divine grace or from God; those things that humans do not possess but can be granted to a person by God.
Also the internal factor is described as “the preacher of the soul” and if this is missing in a person, no matter how many facilities are available, such a person will not be able to use them. This factor is left to the person and is not forced upon him/her. When the two mentioned factors are combined with the external reinforcement, very often they are effective .
