The most Intelligent

Baraa Bin Aazib (radhiallahu anhu) narrated that Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said that Allah Ta`ala will award the highest places in Jannat to certain of His servants who were the most intelligent. The Sahaabah enquired: "How did they become the most intelligent?" Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said:

"Their whole attention and all their efforts are directed towards Allah Ta`ala. The objective of all their efforts is Allah's Pleasure. They have completely lost interest in the world, in its futility, in its pleasures and comforts. The world is contemptible to them. They choose to bear the temporary hardships of the world, hence they will gain the everlasting comfort (of the Aakhirah)."

The criterion of intelligence by Allah is Taqwa.

Refrain the Friendship of Four persons

Hadhrat Baqir (rahmatullahi alayh) narrates:

"My father (Hadhrat Zainul Aabideen) instructed me not to associate with four types of people.

(1) A fasiq. He will betray you for a morsel of food.

(2) A liar. He will deceive you.

(3) A stupid man. He will harm you even if he does something with a good intention.

(4) A person who severs family ties. He is described as a Ma'loon (accursed) in three places in the Qur`aan Shareef ."

Stories of the Quraan

The Glorious Qur'an, recounts a number of stories that took place throughout far-remote points of history which are full of events that one's eyes and mind cannot fail to grasp its admonition and advice. These admonitions and advice, if seriously considered, can verify and restore to the right course a great number of false beliefs and concepts. Allah the Almighty says: {Thus We relate to you (O Muhammad (Peace be upon him)) some information of what happened before. And indeed We have given you from Us a Reminder (this Qur'an)}. (Ta-Ha, 99)
