Who must we fear in our religion?

SHAFAQNA – It is narrated from Imam Ali (AS) who said: Be fearful of three persons in your religion.

  1. The Quran reciter who has learned the Quran, and has reached a good social position, and is delighted with this position.
  2. The person who is used by others in (political) events of the day, and earns his/her income this way.
  3. The man who God has granted power and he thinks, others obeying him is the same as obeying God, and disobeying him, is the same as disobeying God. In fact it is not like this, and no one must obey another person in committing sins against God [1].
