What are the main elements of belief?

SHAFAQNA – Imam Ali (AS) was asked: What is belief? Imam (AS) replied: Belief has four main elements;

1) Patience

2) Certainty

3) Justice

4) Jihad [1].

Of course each element has also been described separately in Nahjul Balaghah and authentic narrations by Imam Ali (AS).

[1] Nahjul Balaghah, Short Elequent Saying Number 31.
