Oh Allah, help me to cry for myself, for I have wasted my life away with procrastination and false hopes. And now I have come to You hopeless of my goodness. So who is worse off than me?

Paradise is for those who maintain sincerity in worshipping Allah and in prayer to Him. Whatever they see does not occupy their heart. Whatever they hear does not make them forget to speak of Allah, and they do not feel depressed because of what is given to others.

Amirul Mo’minin Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib (ع) al-Kafi v. 2, ch. 9, h. 3

God said, “It is not because he is despicable that I delay My gift to him: That very delay is an aid.

His need brought him from heedlessness to Me, pulling him by the hair to My lane.

Were I to satisfy his need, he would go back and immerse himself in that game.

Although he laments to the bottom of his soul: ‘Oh Thou whose protection is sought!’

Let him weep with a broken heart and wounded breast.

For I am pleased by his voice, his saying, ‘Oh God!’ and by his secret prayers.

People cage parrots and nightingales to hear the sound of their sweet songs.

But how should they put crows and owls into cages? Who indeed has heard tale of that?

Know for certain that this is the reason the believers suffer disappointment in good and evil.

Why do we think Imam Ali (as) is a perfect human being?

Because he felt society’s pain, and his ‘I’ had become ‘we’. His personality attracted all others. He was not an individual separated from others. He was a limb or an organ of a whole body. He himself said that a pain in one part of society, as in a body, made itself felt in the other parts, one of which was himself…

….[Imam Ali] describes his own life and says that he felt other people’s pain more than his own, and their pain prevented him from feeling his own. His words show that he was a truly learned and wise sage. Yet the reason why we honor him so deeply is not only because of his wide knowledge, but because he was human.

When our Prophet (s) was asked how man could enjoy the favors and good grace of proximity to and mercy of Allah, he quoted Prophet Musa’s (as) supplication:

“Oh My God, I seek proximity to You,” Allah said: Proximity to Me is for him who stays awake on Laylatul Qadr

“Oh My God, I am in need of Your Mercy,” He said: My Mercy is for him who shows mercy to the poor on Laylatul Qadr

“Oh My God, I am in need of the passport to cross the bridge,” He said: that is for him who give alms on Laylatul Qadr

“Oh My God, I am in need of the trees in Paradise and their fruits,” He said: that is for him who seeks forgiveness on Laylatul Qadr

“Oh My God, I seek deliverance from fire,” He said: that is for him who remembers Allah on Laylatul Qadr

“Oh My God, I seek Your good pleasure,” He said: that is for him who says a two rakat prayer on Laylatul Qadr
