الإمام السّجاد (عليه السَّلام):
عَلاماتُ المؤمنِ خَمسٌ: الوَرعُ في الخَلوةِ، وَ الصَّدقةُ في القِلّةِ، وَ الصَّبرُ عند المصيبةِ، والحِلْمُ عند الغضبِ، والصِّدقُ عند الخوفِ.
Imam al-Sajjad (as):
The signs of a believer are five: piety [even] when in seclusion, giving charity in spite of lack, patience in the face of calamity, clemency when angered, and truthfulness in spite of fear.
