Sign of a wise society


SHAFAQNA – It is narrated that Imam Baqer (AS) asked Saeed ibn Hassan: In the society which you live in, is it normal practice that if a Muslim brother who is in need goes to another and put his hand in that person’s pocket and takes the right amount of money needed whilst the owner of that money does not prevent him from doing so?
Saeed replied: No, I do not know about this method or a person who does such an act. Imam Baqer (AS) said: Therefore, Islamic brotherhood does not exist in your society. Saeed asked: In that case, are we going towards downfall and destruction? Imam Baqer replied: The wisdom of the people have not been completed [1].
