What are the reasons behind dignity and degradation of nations?

SHAFAQNA – Imam Ali (AS) said: When you study and think about the lives of the previous generations, undertake the factors which gave them dignity, and removed enemies from their path, and provided blessed lives for them, and granted them abundant of blessings, and gave them identity. It was when they avoided dispute and disunity, and worked on unity and thinking alike, and encouraged each other to having unity. And they avoided acts which broke their backs, and destroyed their strength, like enmity towards each other, filling their hearts with jealousy, cutting relations, and not helping each other [1].
