The best provision for hereafter

SHAFAQNA – Imam Ali (AS) was returning from Saffain and reached a cemetery behind the gates of Kufa, he faced the graves and said: O’ the residents of the frightening houses and empty districts and narrow graves; o’ those who are asleep in the soil, o’ strangers, o’ lonely ones, o’ frightened ones, you went before us  and we will follow you and will join you. But your houses! others are residing in them, but your wives! are married to others and your wealth has been distributed amongst others! This is the news that we have, now what kind of news you have? Then Imam Ali (AS) faced his companions and said: Know that if they could speak, they would tell you that: The best provision is piety [1].
