SHAFAQNA – Reputation is like drops of water gathering little by little. A person tries for years to establish some sort of reputation which can also be lost very easily. For a believer, reputation is worth more than wealth and life and that is why some are ready to sacrifice their life and wealth to protect their reputation. It is narrated from Imam Hassan (AS) who told his brother Imam Hussain (AS): You know better than me that the best use of wealth is where the reputation of a human being is protected .
