Quotes from Al-Kazim

“On the day of Resurrection, there will stand on the Divine Throne four individuals from the past generations and four from the later generations.

Then, food will be served. Those who visited the shrines of the Imams will be invited to that food. The visitors of my son’s shrine will be the foremost and the most favorable.”

He (A.S.) said: “No believer commits a sin but he regrets it and feels ashamed. And the Prophet has said:
Enough is regret as repentance, ‘and also he has said: `Whoever is pleased by a good deed and displeased by a bad deed, he is a believer.’ Therefore, if there is someone who does not feel remorse for a sin he has committed, he is not a believer, and intercession will not avail him, and he will be an unjust one. And Allah says: `The unjust shall have no true friend nor any intercessor who should be obeyed’ (40:18).”

“The world is soft and beautiful like a snake but there is a (disastrous) killer poison hidden inside it.”
