What is the most valuable asset for the human being?

SHAFAQNA – It is narrated from Imam Reza (AS) who said the human being cannot live alone, must have a friend. Imam (AS) added that the human being has one friend on the earth and that is enough for him/her, Imam Reza (AS) said the only friend for the human being is his/her wisdom [1]; meaning human’s inappropriate desires, lusts, rage and anger, fantasies and fallacies are his/her enemies. The great Prophet of Islam (PBUH) said: The worst enemy for the human being is his/her inappropriate desires of soul [2]. Because whoever you see that has been destroyed is due to his/her own misbehaviour and selfishness.
