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.
