Wisdom of Imam Ali

Nature of this World

Surely, the likeness of this world is that of a snake:
it is soft to touch, and deadly poisonous.
The ignorant child is distracted by it,
and the one with understanding and intellect is cautious of it.

So turn away from what fascinates you in it,
for how little of it stays with you.
Pin It Now!
