SHAFAQNA – Imam Ali (AS) said: I am surprised the mean person who is rushing towards the poverty that he   is supposed to be escaping from; losing an asset that he is trying to obtain. He lives like a poor person but will be trialed like a wealthy one in the hereafter. I am surprised at an arrogant person who was born yesterday from a worthless seed and tomorrow will be a rotten corpse. I am surprised at the one who sees the creation but doubts the existence of God. I am surprised at the one who sees the dead people but has forgotten the death. I am surprised at the one who sees the beginning of the creation but rejects the resurrection. I am surprised at the one who builds the perishable house but has forgotten the eternal abode [1].
