الإمام علي (عليه السَّلام):
مُجالَسَةُ أهلِ الهَوى مَنساهٌ للإيمانِ ومَحضَرَةٌ للشَّيطانِ.

Individual Ethics » Vices » Sin » Satan
الإمام علي (عليه السَّلام):
الشَّيطانُ مُوَكَّلٌ به (أي بالعَبدِ) يُزَيِّنُ لَهُ المَعصيَةَ لِيَركَبَها، ويُمَنِّيهِ التَّوبَةَ لِيُسَوِّفَها.
Imam Ali (as):
Satan takes charge of him [the servant] and glamorizes the sin to him in order that he commit it, and makes him entertain false hopes of forgiveness in order that he delay it.
Source: Nahj al-Balāgha Vol1 P95

الإمام علي (عليه السَّلام):
فاعتَبِرُوا بما كانَ مِن فِعلِ اللّهِ بِإبليسَ؛ إذ أحبَطَ عَمَلَهُ الطَّويلَ وجَهدَهُ الجَهِيدَ (الجميلَ) و كانَ قد عَبَدَ اللّهَ سِتَّةَ آلافِ سَنَةٍ، لايُدرى أمِن سِني الدُّنيا أم مِن سِني الآخِرَةِ عن كِبْرِ ساعَةٍ واحِدَةٍ.
Imam Ali (as):
You should take a lesson from what Allah did with Satan; namely He nullified his great acts and extensive efforts on account of the vanity of one moment, although Satan had worshipped Allah for six thousand years - whether they were years by the reckoning of this world or the next is not known.
Source: Nahj al-Balāgha Vol1 P287

الإمام علي (عليه السَّلام):
ما خَيرٌ بِخَيرٍ بَعدَهُ النارُ، و ما شَرٌّ بِشَرٍّ بَعدَهُ الجَنَّةُ، و كُلُّ نَعيمٍ دُونَ الجَنَّةِ فهُو مَحقورٌ، وكُلُّ بَلاءٍ دُونَ النارِ عافِيَةٌ.
Imam Ali (as):
That good is no good after which there is the Fire, and that hardship is no hardship after which there is Paradise. Every bliss other than Paradise is inferior and every calamity other than the Fire is comfort.

كُلُّ مُعاجَلٍ يَسألُ الإنظارَ، وكُلُ مُؤَجَّلٍ يَتَعَلَّلُ بِالتَّسوِيفِ.
Imam Ali (as):
He whom death overtakes early calls for more time, and he whose death is deferred continues to put forth excuses with further procrastination.

الإمام علي (عليه السَّلام):
أوَّلُ ما يَجِبُ علَيكُم للّهِ سبحانَهُ، شُكرُ أيادِيهِ وابتِغاءُ مَراضِيهِ.

The first duty incumbent upon you towards Allah, Glory be to Him, is thanksgiving for His favours and seeking out His pleasure.
