رسول الله (صلی الله علیه و آله):
مِن علاماتِ الشَّقاءِ: جُمُودُ العَينِ، و قَسوَةُ القَلبِ، و شِدَّةُ الحِرصِ في طَلَبِ الرِّزقِ، و الإصرارُ على الذَّنبِ.
The Prophet Muhammad (S):
Among the symptoms of wretchedness are: a look of apathy in the eyes, hardness of the heart, intense greed in seeking out one's livelihood, and persistence in committing sins.

رسول الله (صلی الله علیه و آله):
إنّ أقرَبَكُم مِنّي غَدا و أوجَبَكُم عَلَيَّ شَفاعَةً: أصدَقُكُم لِسانا، و أدّاكُم لِلأمانَةِ، و أحسَنُكُم خُلُقا، و أقرَبُكُم مِنَ الناسِ.
The Prophet Muhammad (S):
Verily the closest of you to me tomorrow [in the Hereafter], and the most eligible of you for my intercession are those who are the most truthful ones, the most conscientious at returning a trust placed in their care, the most good-natured, and the ones who have close ties with people.

رسول الله (صلی الله علیه و آله):
مَن شَفَعَ شَفاعَةً يَدفَعُ بها مَغرَما أويُحيِي بها مَغنَما، ثَبَّتَ اللّهُ تعالى قَدَمَيهِ حِينَ تَدحَضُ الأقدامُ.
