Imam Ali (a.s) told to his son Imam Hussain (a.s): O Son! After every bad and evil time if there becomes a way for paradise, then its not bad and evil and for every happiness which really has a path for hell is not really happiness and every blessing that is less than heaven is a waste of time and every arrest as compared to hell is a blessing. O My Son! The respect of a true Muslim is not being dependent on anyone and contentment is the wealth that is never ending and who ever remembers death with heart, he will be satisfied with the little and invaluable wealth of this world and who ever realizes that his conversations are also a part of his actions ( and his written ) so his level of conversations will decrease and he will not speak until its important. Oh my son! Blessing has 10 parts out of which nine parts are in being silent except for the praise of god and one part is in denying the companionship of foolish people
