"Remember death repeatedly. This will save you from longing for the worldly pleasures. Show gratitude frequently and this will increase the graces upon you. Pray to Allah so recurrently, because you do not know in which time Allah will respond for your prayer. Beware of tyranny, for Allah has ordained that HE will support those whom are oppressed."

Sayings of Imam Sadiq [ A.S.]
Imam Jafar as Sadiq [ A.S.] said:
             
Surely, a little action (of worshipping) with piety is better than many deeds with no virtue.
               Treat your ailments with charity and repel varieties of affliction by invocation.
               Be careful of your knowledge and see from whom you get it.
               The love of this fleeting world is the origin of all vices.

The Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h) said:
“O’ people! Verily, there is no prophet after me, nor any Ummah after you (Muslims). So, take care to worship your Lord, perform your five ritual prayers, fast in the appointed month (Ramadan), make pilgrimage to the House of your Lord (Mecca), give alms of your wealth in order to purify your souls thereby, and obey the Holders of Authority, so that you enter the Paradise of your Lord.”
Khisal-I-Saduq, p. 152 in “A Bundle of Flowers”, Compiled by Aytullah Sayyid Kamal Faghih Imani

The Holy Prophet (sws) said:
“Fie upon that Muslim who does not allocate (at least) one day a week to the study of his religion.”
Bihar-ul-Anwar, vol. 1, p. 176. in “A Bundle of Flowers”, Compiled by Aytullah Sayyid Kamal Faghih Imani

"O Ali, three matters are within the doors to charity: they are generosity, good wording, and steadfastness against harm. "
Prophet Muhammed p.b.u.h.

"O Ali, three characters are the masters of deeds: they are to treat people fairly, justify your friends, and to praise Allah under any condition. "
Prophet Muhammad p.b.u.h.

"Do not dispute (with others) lest you will lose splendour and do not joke (with everyone) lest you will be disrespected. "
Hazrat Imam Hassan Al – Askari [a.s.]

Imam Ali (as) says:
"I swear to God that if I were to spend from night to morning upon thorns and if my hands and feet were to be chained in the day and I were to be pulled through the streets and bazaars, I am more willing to have this happen than to present myself to God's court if I have committed an oppression against one of God's creatures or if I have usurped the rights of another"
Nahj ul Balagha Sermon 224

"O Ali, no poverty is harsher than ignorance, no fortune better than the intellect, no loneliness drearier than pride, no victory like counselling, no intellect like moderation, no lineage like good manners and no worship like pondering (over things )"
Prophet Muhammad p.b.u.h.

Traditionists report that 'Abdu 'r-Rahman ibn 'Awf' said:
"I heard the Apostle of Allah say, 'I am a tree, Fatimah is its trunk and Ali is its pollen. Hasan and Husayn are its fruits, and our followers (Shi'ah) are its leaves. The roots of the tree are in the Garden of Eden, and its trunk, fruits and leaves are in Paradise.' "

Appearance of Mahdi - from The Sayings of Prophet Muhammed s.a.w.

Abu Dawoud in his 'Sahih' on Page 87, Vol. 4 narrated from Abdulla a tradition from the Holy Prophet (S.A.W.A.) as follows: 'If there remains not more than a day from the life of the earth, God Almighty will set the day so long until He appoints a person from my progeny.'

Thereafter he says - Similarly it has come in Hadith Sufyan that the Holy Prophet has said: 'The life of this world shall not end until an Arab from my progeny will rule over the world.'(8)

The same book on the afore-said page and volume mentions a tradition from Ali (A.S.) who narrates from the Holy Prophet (S.A.W.A.) as follows: 'If there remains not more than a day from the life of the earth, surely God shall appoint a person from my progeny.'

Tirmidhi in Vol. 2 of his 'Sahih' on Page 270 narrates a tradition from Abdullah who narrates from the Holy Prophet (S.A.W.A.) that he said: 'The life of this world shall not cease to exist until an Arab from my progeny shall come and rule.'

Tirmidhi says: This tradition is (acceptable) and (correct) and the same has also been narrated from Ali, Abu Sa'eed, Umm-Salma and Abu Huraira.

Also, in the afore-said book on the same page of the same volume, a tradition has been narrated by Abu Huraira from the Holy Prophet (S.A.W.A.) as follows:

'If there remains not more than a day from the life of the earth, God Almighty will set the day so long until a person from my progeny shall come and rule.' Then he says: This 'hadith' is (acceptable) and (correct). (9)

Ibn-Hajar in his Sawa'eq; on Page 97 says: Abu Ahmad, Abu Dawoud, Tirmidhi and Ibn Maaja have narrated from the Holy Prophet (S.A.W.A.) as saying:

If there remains not more than a day from the life of the earth, surely God shall appoint on that day a person from my progeny; Es'aaf-ur-Raghebeen too has narrated the same on Page No. 147(10)

Ibn Hajr in the afore-mentioned book on Page 97 writes: Abu Dawoud and Tirmidhi narrate from the Holy Prophet (S.A.W.A.) as such: -

"If there remains not more than a day from the life of the earth, surely God will set that day so long until He makes a person appear from my progeny."

Esa'af-ur-Raghebben too has narrated the same on Page 148.

Ibn Hajr, in the afore-mentioned book on Page 97 says: Abu Dawoud and Tirmidhi have narrated from the Holy Prophet (S.A.W.A.) as such: 'The life of this world shall not cease to exist until a person from my progeny shall come and rule.'

Es'aaf-ur-Raghebben too has narrated the same on Page 148.

Ibn Hajar in Sawa'eq; (Page 97) writes: Abu Dawoud and Tirmidhi have narrated from the Holy Prophet (S.A.W.A.) as such:

'If there remains not more than a day from the life of the earth, God will set the day so long, until He appoints a person from my progeny.' Es'aaf-ur-Raghebeen too has narrated the same on Page 148. (11)

In 'Nur-ul-Absar' Page 229 a tradition has been narrated from Ali (A.S.) who narrates from the Holy Prophet (S.A.W.A.) as such:

'If there remains not more than a day from the life of the earth, surely God will make a person from my progeny to appear' (on that day).

Then the author continues: 'This hadith has also been narrated by Abu Dawoud in his 'Sunan'.

In the same book on Page 231, it is narrated from Abu Huraira who narrates from the Holy Prophet (S.A.W.A.) that:

"Qiyamat shall not be established until a person from my progeny comes and rules". (11)

On Page 151 of Es'aaf-ur-Raghebben it is mentioned that Ahmad and Mawardi have narrated from the Holy Prophet (S.A.W.A.) who said: -

Glad-tidings to you (all) about Mahdi; The same has come in 'Nur-ul-Absar' Pg. 151.

Author of 'Nur-ul-Absar' writes on Page 230 as such: Ahmad narrates from Abu Sa'eed Khudri that the Holy Prophet (S.A.W.A.) has said: 'I give you glad-tidings about Mahdi.'

In Yanabi-ul-Mawadda; (Page 432) it is narrated from Qetaada who said: "'I asked Sa'eed-ibn-Maseeb: "Is there any truth in Mahdi?" He replied, 'Yes, he is the truth and he is from the progeny of Fatemah.'"(13)

In the same book, on the afore-said page it is narrated from Ali (A.S.) who has narrated from the Holy Prophet (S.A.W.A.) that: 'If there remains not more than a day from the life of the earth, indeed God shall make a person from my progeny to appear.'

Thereafter he writes: 'This hadith has also been narrated by Abu Dawoud, Ahmad, Tirmidhi and Ibn-Maaja.'

Also, in the same book on Page 432, a tradition is narrated from 'Musnad' of Ahmad who has narrated from the Holy Prophet (S.A.W.A.) as such: -

'Qiyamat shall not be established until the earth is filled with cruelty and oppression. Then a person from my progeny shall appear and fill it with equity and Justice. (14)

Again, in the afore-mentioned book On Page 440 he writes: Mufeq-ibn-Ahmad Akhtab narrates a sermon of Khawarazm who takes reference from Abdur-Rahman-ibn-Abi Laili who narrates from his father who said: - 'In the battle of Khaibar, the Holy Prophet (S.A.W.A.) handed over the banner to Ali (A.S.). Then Allah ordained victory by his hands. Later, at Ghadir-e-Khum he reminded the people that Ali was the 'Maula' (Master) of all believing men and women and continued until he expressed few sentences about the virtues of Ali, Fatemah, Hassan and Hussein. Thereafter he said: 

"Gabriel has informed me that after my departure they shall be subject to injustice and, oppression and this oppression shall continue until a movement is brought about by their Qa'em; and at that time their creed will be raised high, people shall turn towards their friendship, ill-speaking towards them shall diminish, those having unpleasantness for them shall be degraded and those eulogizing them shall increase. Such kind of events will occur when cities shall collide with each other and people become weak and helpless of respite. At that time shall appear the Qa'em; (Mahdi) from my progeny and God will manifest the truth through him and extinguish the falsehood by his sword. Thereafter he said: 'O people, glad-tidings to you of relief and respite. Surely the promise of Allah is true, He never breaks it, and His decree never gets refuted. He is All Aware and All seeing and the victory of Allah is near. (15)

In the same book on Page 447 he narrates from the book of Fara'ed-us-Semtain; from Shaikh Abu Ishaaq Ibrahim-ibn-Yaqub who narrates from Jabir-ibn-Abdulla Ansari that the Holy Prophet (S.A.W.A.) has said: The one who denies the emergence of Mahdi has surely disbelief to whatever God has revealed upon Muhammad and the one who denies the coming of Isa (Jesus) has surely become a disbeliever and the one who denies the revolt of Dajjal has surely become a disbeliever.;(16)
