الإمام علي (عليه السَّلام):
إنّ لِلجِسمِ سِتَّةَ أحوالٍ: الصِّحّةُ، والمَرضُ، والمَوتُ، والحَياةُ، والنَّومُ، واليَقَظَةُ، وكذلكَ الرُّوحُ، فحياتُها عِلمُها، ومَوتُها جَهلُها، ومَرَضُها شَكُّها، وصِحَّتُها يَقِينُها، ونَومُها غَفلَتُها، ويَقَظَتُها حِفظُها.
Imam Ali (as):
The body experiences six different states: health, sickness, death, life, sleep and wakefulness, and so does the spirit. Its life is its knowledge and its death ignorance; its sickness is doubt whereas its health is certainty; its sleep is its negligence and its wakefulness is its consciousness.
