One of the most malicious issues in the life a youth is desires. Every
youths decision is affected by his desires and it is his choice to
suppress it, harness it, or misuse it. Imam Jafar Sadiq and he quoted
Imam Ali: Are we greater than the angels?" In response he replied,
"Allah endowed angels with intellect without desire, animals with desire
without intellect and man with both of them. So he whose intellect
manages to conquer his desire,is greater than the angels, and he whose
desires overcome his intellect, he is lower than the animals."
Therefore, before committing any act, we must always remind ourselves of
this hadith and think of our actions.
The Holy Prophet [s] said: "For whosoever I am his Leader (mawla), 'Ali
is his Leader (mawla)."
The Reward of Loving Ahlul-bayt [a]
“….On the commentary of the Quranic verse: "Lo! those who believe and do good, the Beneficent will appoint for them love (Quran 19:96)," al-Hafidh al-Salafi wrote: Muhammad Ibn Hanafiyyah said: "There will not be a believer unless in whose heart love of Ali and his family exists." In this connection, al-Bayhaqi, Abu al-Shaikh, and al-Daylami reported that the Messenger of Allah said: "A servant (of God) will not be a (true) believer unless he loves me more than his own soul, and loves my progeny more than his own soul and his own family." See al-Sawa'iq al-Muhriqah, by Ibn Hajar al-Haythami, Ch. 11, section 1, pp 261-262 quoted from al-Hafidh al-Salafi, al-Bayhaqi, Abu al-Shaikh, and al-Daylami).”
