Firmness of religion and the world

SHAFAQNA – Imam Ali (AS) told Jaber ibn Abdullah Ansari: O’ Jaber, firmness of religion and the world depend on four things: A scholar who acts on his knowledge; an illiterate person who does not refuse to learn; a generous person who is not stingy at the time of giving; and a needy person who does not sell his hereafter to the world [1].
