French Proverb

By Allah no one is our Shīah except that he has piety for Allah (guards himself against sin) and obeys him. They (the Shīah) are not known and recognized except for their humility, modesty, fear of Allah, trustworthiness, plenty of remembrance of Allah, fasting, service, kindness to the parents, looking after the poor neighbours and afflicted people, mentioning them with nothing except goodness and beneficence; and they are the trustees for their tribes in all the affairs.

al-Baqir, Muhammad

Fasting is a shield against (hell) fire. Charity and dole remove and finish sin, as does the remembrance of Allah in the midnight.

al-Baqir, Muhammad

Long after midnight the windows of the house shone like gold, and golden song flowed out into the winter air.

Karen von Blixen-Finecke

Of joys departed, Not to return, how painful the remembrance!
