Social Ethics » Family » Family’s Economy » Contentment » The Result of Lack of Contentment
الإمام جعفر الصادق (عليه السَّلام ):
اقنَعْ بما قَسَمَ اللّهُ لكَ‏ولا تَنظُرْ إلى ما عِندَ غيرِكَ ولا تَتَمَنَّ ما لَستَ نائلَهُ؛ فإنّهُ مَن قَنِعَ شَبِعَ ومَن لم يَقنَعْ لم يَشبَعْ، وخُذْ حَظَّكَ مِن آخِرَتِكَ.
Imam Ja‘far al-Ṣadiq (as):
Be content with what Allah has allotted for you, do not look at what others have, and do not wish for what you cannot acquire, for whoever is content will be full and whoever is not content will never be full, and take your portion of your hereafter.
