Promoting one’s position by good deeds not by lineage

SHAFAQNA – In Islamic teachings, one’s piety and good deeds are counted toward promotion of position in this world and the hereafter. Imam Ali (AS) said: The one whose deeds do not help him/her to get to any position, family honours will not help him/her either [1].
