SHAFAQNA – It is narrated from Imam Sadeq (AS) who said: The one who seeks position (those who do everything in their power to reach top position), destroys himself . In another narration, Imam Sadeq (AS) explained: The one who seeks position is cursed, the one who plans to reach top position is cursed. The one who also pursue this goal and all the time is dreaming of reaching the top position is also cursed. Imam Sadeq (AS) described all of these as the cursed ones . In this regard, it is narrated from Imam Reza (AS) who said: There are those who are qualified for top positions whom God knows them, therefore any one going after it (top position) will be destroyed .
