الإمام الكاظم (عليه السَّلام):
لَيس مِنّا مَن لَم يُحاسِبْ نَفْسَهُ في كُلِّ يَومٍ، فإنْ عَمِلَ خَيرا اسْتَزادَ اللّهَ مِنهُ و حَمِدَ اللّهَ علَيهِ، و إنْ عَمِلَ شَيئا شَرّا اسْتَغْفَرَ اللّهَ و تابَ إلَيهِ.
Imam al-Kaẓim (as):
The one who does not take account of himself every single day is not one of us. And when doing so, if he comes across a good deed he has done, he should thank Allah and ask Him to grant him the ability to do more, and if he has committed an evil deed, he must seek Allah s forgiveness and repent.

الإمام الكاظم (عليه السَّلام):
الإمامةُ هِيَ النُّورُ، وذلكَ قولُهُ عزّوجلّ: «آمِنُوا باللّهِ وَرَسُولِهِ والنُّورِ الّذي أنْزَلْنا»، قالَ: النُّورُ هُوَ الإمامُ.
Imam al-Kaẓim (as):

Individual Ethics » Vices » Greediness » Reprehension of Greed
الإمام الكاظم (عليه السَّلام):
إيّاكَ والطَّمَعَ، وعلَيكَ باليَأسِ مِمّا في أيدِي الناسِ، وأمِتِ الطَّمَعَ مِن المَخلوقِينَ؛ فإنَّ الطَّمَعَ مِفتاحٌ لِلذُّلِّ، واختِلاسُ العَقلِ، واختِلاقُ المُرُوّاتِ، وتَدنِيسُ العِرضِ، والذَّهابُ بِالعِلمِ
Imam al-Kaẓim (as):
Imam al-Kazim (AS) said to Hashim, exhorting him, You must beware of greed, and despair of acquiring anything in the possession of others. Suppress the greed in others for verily greed is the key to disgrace, it exploits the intellect, fabricates valorous qualities for itself, tarnishes ones reputation, and does away with ones knowledge.
