الإمام الهادي (عليه السَّلام ):
المِراءُ يُفسِدُ الصَّداقَةَ القَديمَةَ، ويُحَلِّلُ العُقدَةَ الوَثِيقَةَ، وأقَلُّ ما فيهِ أن تَكونَ فيهِ المُغالَبَةُ، والمُغالَبَةُ اسُّ أسبابِ القَطيعَةِ.
Imam al-Hadi (as):
The quarrel corrupts a long friendship and dissolves strong ties, the least of it is that one tries to overcome the other, and strife is the main cause of a break in friendship.

Fundamental Beliefs » Human and God » Gratefulness » The Significance of Thanksgiving
الإمام الهادي (عليه السَّلام ):
الشاكِرُ أسعَدُ بالشُّكرِ مِنهُ بِالنِّعمَةِ التي أوجَبَتِ الشُّكرَ؛ لأنَّ النِّعَمَ مَتاعٌ، والشُّكرَ نِعَمٌ وعُقبى.
Imam al-Hadi (as):
The thankful person prospers more as a result of his thanks than as a result of the bounty which incited the thanks, because bounties are sources of delight [in this world] whereas to thank brings bounties in this world and the hereafter.

When Allah allowed [Prophet] Moses son of Imran (as) to converse with Him, Moses (as) asked, My God, what is the reward of one who maintains relations with his kin? He replied, O Moses, I delay the appointed time of his death, and ease the pangs and agonies of death for him.
