Positive way of looking at the world

SHAFAQNA – Imam Ali (AS) heard a man was blaming and criticizing the world and replying to him, said: Verily, the world is the true place for truthful persons and the healthy house for those who know about the world, and an abode for collecting provision for those who are self-sufficient, and the place of learning for those who take heed. The world is the place of prostration (Sijdah) for the friends of Allah (SWT), is the worship place of Divine Angels, the descending place of Divine Revelation, the place of trade for the friends of God where they attained God’s Mercy, and gained paradise [1].
