SHAFAQNA – In a letter to his eldest son Imam Hassan Mojtaba (AS), Imam Ali (AS) wrote: Prohibit your soul from any impurity, even if it helps you to achieve your target (you may reach your aim/target by impurity of the soul, but it is not worth it); because you cannot gain to the amount which you lose from your dignity [1].
