الإمام السّجاد (عليه السَّلام):
إنْ أخَذْتَ الأسيرَ فعَجَزَ عنِ المَشْيِ ولَم يَكُنْ مَعكَ مَحْمِلٌ فأرْسِلْهُ ولا تَقْتُلْهُ؛ فإنّكَ لا تَدري ما حُكْمُ الإمامِ فيهِ.
Imam al-Sajjad (as):
If you take a captive who then cannot walk further, nor have you a carriage for him, then set him free and do not kill him, for you do not know what would be the Imam s ruling about him.

الإمام السّجاد (عليه السَّلام):
ما مِن قَطرةٍ أحَبَّ إلى اللّهِ عزّ وجلّ مِن قَطْرَتَينِ: قَطرةُ دَمٍ في سبيلِ اللّهِ، وقَطرةُ دَمعَةٍ في سَوادِ اللّيلِ، لا يُريدُ بها عبدٌ إلّا اللّهَ عزّ وجلّ.
Imam al-Sajjad (as):
No drops are more beloved to Allah, the Exalted, than two: a drop of blood [shed] in the way of Allah, and a teardrop shed by a servant in the darkness of the night solely for Allah s sake.

الإمام السّجاد (عليه السَّلام):
اللّهُمَّ صَلِّ على محمّدٍ وآلِهِ، واكفِني ما يَشغَلُنِي الاهتِمامُ بهِ، واستَعمِلْني بما تَسألُنِي غَدا عَنهُ، واستَفرِغْ أيّامِي فيما خَلَقتَنِي لَهُ.
Imam al-Sajjad (as):
O Allah, bless Muhammad and his Household, and spare me the concerns which distract me [from your worship and obedience], employ me in that which You will ask me about tomorrow (on the day of Judgment), and let me pass my days [engaged] in that for which You have created me!

الإمام السّجاد (عليه السَّلام):
حقُّ السَّمعِ تَنزيهُهُ عن سَماعِ الغِيبَةِ، وسَماعِ ما لايَحِلُّ سَماعُهُ.
Imam al-Sajjad (as):
The right of the ears is to keep them pure from listening to backbiting, and from that which is unlawful to listen to.

الإمام السّجاد (عليه السَّلام):
في دعائهِ: فلَولا أنَّ الشَّيطانَ يَختَدِعُهُم عَن طاعَتِكَ ما عَصاكَ عاصٍ، ولَولا أنّهُ صَوَّرَ لَهُمُ الباطِلَ في مِثالِ الحَقِّ ما ضَلَّ عَن طَرِيقِكَ ضالٌّ.
Imam al-Sajjad (as):
Were it not for the fact that Satan misleads them from Your obedience, no disobeyer would have ever disobeyed You, and were it not for the fact that he portrays falsehood to them in the likeness of truth, no strayer would have ever strayed from Your path.

الإمام السّجاد (عليه السَّلام):
طَلَبُ الحَوائجِ إلى الناسِ مَذَلَّةٌ للحياةِ، ومَذهَبَةٌ للحَياءِ، واستِخفافٌ بِالوَقارِ، وهُو الفَقرُ الحاضِرُ، وقِلَّةُ طَلَبِ الحوائجِ مِنَ الناسِ هُو الغِنى الحاضِرُ.
Imam al-Sajjad (as):
Asking for the fulfilment of one's needs from people degrades one's life, does away with one's modesty, and makes a mockery of one's own dignity and it is a ready poverty in itself, whereas refraining from seeking fulfilment of one's needs from people is ready wealth in itself.

كانَ آخِرُ ما أوصى بهِ الخضرُ موسى بنَ عِمرانَ عليهماالسلام:... ما رَفَقَ أحَدٌ بأحَدٍ في الدنيا إلّا رَفَقَ اللّهُ عزّوجلّ بهِ يَومَ القِيامَةِ.
Imam al-Sajjad (as):
The last piece of advice that al-Khidr gave to Prophet Moses (as) was: No one treats a person with leniency in the world except that Allah will be lenient with him on the Day of Resurrection.
