The sources of goodness

SHAFAQNA – It is narrated from Imam Ali (AS) who said: The sources of goodness are available in three characteristics; looking, silence and talking. Any look which does not serve as an example, is an omission; and any silence without thought is negligence; and any talk without reminiscence, is futile. How prosperous is the one whose look serves as an example, and whose silence is for thinking, and whose talking is for remembering; and who cries for his/her mistakes, and people are not bothered by his/her mischief [1].
