Key points of success

SHAFAQNA – A person asked to be advised by Imam Ali (AS) and Imam (AS) replied: Do not be of those who recommend taking heed but do not take heed themselves; do not be of those who give excessive advice to others but do not accept advice themselves; do not be of those who talk a lot but their good deeds are negligible; do not be like the one who makes a lot of effort for this fast passing world but forfeits easily the eternal hereafter; do not be like the one who considers loss as gain and vice-versa; do not be of those who is fearful of death but misses the opportunity; do not be like the one who counts his sins as small but others sins as great \[1].

\[1] Nahjul Balaghah, Wisdom Number 150.
