Hazrat Ali (R.A) quotes are widely shared because Allah granted him great Wisdom. The importance of Ali R.A was mentioned at several places by Prophet P.B.U.H. Once Prophet Muhammad S.A.W.W said:
The status of Hazrat Ali is important to both Shias and Sunnis. Islamic Quotes by Hazrat Ali are the source to provide spiritual assistance to the Muslims.
During his life, he had the best power to understand any problem, and he always gave the correct decision in any controversial situation.
Many people came to Hazrat Ali R.A to solve their personal matters because they believed in his wisdom and trusted that his decisions were always full of honesty and justice.
One of the most respected names in the history of Islam is Hazrat Imam Ali Ibn Abi Talib. I thought he is the luckiest companion of Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) because he grew up in the house of Last Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH).
He ruled as the fourth caliph from 656 to 661. Nahj al-Balagha, Supplications are read-worthy books written by Hazrat Ali.
As a fourth caliph in Islamic history, he advised his people to behave as true Muslims, warning that he would tolerate no revolution and those who were found guilty of subversive activities would be dealt with harshly.
10 Pearls of Wisdom by Ali ibn Abi Talib
1 – فَاعِلُ الْخَيْرِ خَيْرٌ مِنْهُ، وَفَاعِلُ الشَّرِّ شَرٌّ مِنْهُ
“The doer of good is better than the good itself, and the doer of evil is worse than the evil itself”
2 – أَزْرَى بِنَفْسِهِ مَنِ اسْتَشْعَرَ الطَّمَعَ وَ رَضِيَ بِالذُّلِّ مَنْ كَشَفَ عَنْ ضُرِّهِ وَ هَانَتْ عَلَيْهِ نَفْسُهُ مَنْ أَمَّرَ عَلَيْهَا لِسَانَهُ
“He who adopts greed as a habit devalues himself; he who discloses his hardship agrees to humiliation, and he who allows his tongue to overpower his soul debases the soul.”
3 – الصَّدَقَةُ دَوَاءٌ مُنْجِحٌ، وَأَعْمَالُ الْعِبَادِ فِي عَاجِلِهِمْ، نُصْبُ أَعْيُنِهِمْ فِي آجِلِهِمْ
“Charity is an effective cure, and the actions of people in their present life will be before their eyes in the next life.”
4 – إِذَا وَصَلَتْ إِلَيْكُمْ أَطْرَافُ النِّعَمِ فَلَا تُنَفِّرُوا أَقْصَاهَا بِقِلَّةِ الشُّكْرِ
“When you are bestowed with small favors, do not push them away through lack of gratefulness.”
5 – قُرِنَتِ الْهَيْبَةُ بِالْخَيْبَةِ وَالْحَيَاءُ بِالْحِرْمَانِ وَالْفُرْصَةُ تَمُرُّ مَرَّ السَّحَابِ، فَانْتَهِزُوا فُرَصَ الْخَيْرِ
“The consequence of fear is disappointment and the consequence of bashfulness is frustration. Opportunity passes away like the passing of clouds, so make use of good opportunities.”
6 – مِنْ كَفَّارَاتِ الذُّنُوبِ الْعِظَامِ إِغَاثَةُ الْمَلْهُوفِ، وَالتَّنْفِيسُ عَنِ الْمكْرُوبِ
“Rendering relief to the grief-stricken and providing them with comfort in hardship are among the means of atonement for great sins.”
7 – لِسَانُ الْعَاقِلِ وَرَاءَ قَلْبِهِ، وَقَلْبُ الاْحْمَقِ وَرَاءَ لِسَانِهِ
“The tongue of the wise man is behind his heart, and the heart of the fool is behind his tongue.”
