2. الإمامُ عليٌّ عَلَيهِ السَّلامُ: أيُّها النّاسُ، سَلُوا اللّه اليَقينَ، وارغَبوا إلَيهِ في العافيَةِ؛ فإنّ أجَلَّ النِّعمَةِ العافِيَةُ، وخَيرُ مادامَ في القَلبِ اليَقينُ، والمَغبونُ مَن غُبِنَ دِينَهُ، والمَغبوطُ مَن غُبِطَ يَقينَهُ.

12. The archangel Gabriel (AS), coming down to the Prophet (SAWA) said, ‘O Messenger of Allah, Allah Almighty sent me to you with a gift which He has not given to anyone before you.

These are all branches of complete trust
[in Allah] and the steps to asceticism.’
[Bihar al-Anwar, v. 77, p. 20, no. 4]

[to the truth], and attestation is testifying, and testifying is fulfilment
[of one’s obligations], and fulfilment is action.’

علاماتُ المُوقِنِ / The Signs of a Person of Conviction

14. رسولُ اللّه صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيه وَ آلِهِ: أمّـا عَـلامَةُ المُوقِنِ فَسِتَّةٌ: أيْقَنَ باللّه حَقّا فآمَنَ بهِ، وأيقَنَ بأنّ المَوتَ حقٌّ فحَذِرَهُ، وأيقَنَ بأنّ البَعثَ حَقٌّ فخافَ الفَضيحَةَ، وأيقَنَ بأنّ الجَنّةَ حَقٌّ فاشتاقَ إلَيها، وأيقَنَ بأنّ النّارَ حَقٌّ فظَهَرَ سَعيُهُ لِلنَّجاةِ مِنها، وأيقَنَ بأنّ الحِسابَ حَقٌّ فحاسَبَ نَفسَهُ.
14. The Prophet (SAWA) said, ‘There are six signs of a person of conviction: he has truly attained conviction in Allah and believed in Him, he is convinced that death is true and he is wary of it, he is convinced that Resurrection is true and he fears shame , he is convinced that Heaven is true and he longs for it, he is convinced that Hell is true and his endeavour is apparent in his wanting to be saved from it, he is convinced that the Account is true and so he takes account of himself.’

16. Imam Ali (AS) said, ‘Whoever has conviction in that he will depart from his loved ones, will dwell in the earth, be faced with the Account, be in no need for what he has left behind but be in need of what he has sent forth, is worthy of having short expectations and lengthy deeds.’
[Bihar al-Anwar, v. 73, p. 167, no. 31]

17. الإمامُ عليٌّ عَلَيهِ السَّلامُ: مَن تَيَقَّنَ أنّ اللّه سبحانَهُ يَراهُ وهُو يَعمَلُ بِمَعاصيهِ فَقَد جَعَلَهُ أهوَنَ النّاظِرينَ.
17. Imam Ali (AS) said, ‘Whoever has conviction that Allah sees him while he continues to commit sins, then he has considered Him the most insignificant of onlookers.’

21. Imam al-Sadiq (AS) said, ‘A greedy person has been deprived of two things, as a result of which he lacks two more things: he is deprived of contentment and so he lacks comfort, and he is deprived of satisfaction and so he lacks conviction.’

23. The Prophet (SAWA) said, ‘Weakness of conviction is that you satisfy people by displeasing Allah Almighty, and that you praise them for the sustenance that Allah Almighty has given you, and you blame them for what Allah has not given you.’
