Imam told him to write his request if he was too shy to say it. The man wrote :"
I owe someone 500 dinars and he is pressuring me for returning it. Please talk
to him and ask him to give me more time. " When Imam read the request ,
he bestowed the man a purse. The purse contained 1000 dinars. He said , "
500 to pay your debts , and the rest for improving your living conditions.
"Then Imam said , " Avoid asking for help from anyone but three types of people
: the religions , the generous , and the noble ;The religions for their fear of God ,
the generous for their charitability ,and the noble for their dignity, will not let you down.
(Bihar al- Anwar, Vol. 78 , P. 118)

(Bihar al- Anwar, Vol. 78 , P. 128)
89 - Shifter are the orphans of Mohammad's household. Whoever takes an orphan of ours under his protection and guides him , the Almighty God Will tell him , O My generous mortal , you deserve my grace. Then he will order his angels to give him one thousand palace ,
for each word he how taught.
(Bihar al- Anwar, Vol. 2 , P. 4)
90 - If it were not the realization of the Moslem brothers' rights , for whatever evil you did ; you would have been punished. But the glorified God says :" Whatever affliction befalls you , it is on account ,of what your hands have wrought , and (yet) He pardons most (of your faults)".
(Bihar al- Anwar Vol. 75 , P. 415)
91 - A man told Imam Hussain: O' the son of the Prophet! I am your Shi’a (follower)! Imam replied: "Fear God and don't claim this, otherwise God will tell you : You are a liarin what you claimed. Surely our Shi’as ( followers ) are those whose hearts are pure and free from insincerity and treason , you had better say you are an admirer and friend".
(Bihar al- Anwar Vol. 68 , P. 156)
92 - Brothers are of four kinds : A brother who cares both about you and about himself , a brother who is only concerned about you , a brother who is only after harming you , and a brother who benefits neither you nor himself. When asked to clarify this , Imam said , " A brother , who cares about you and himself , is beneficial for both you and himself. such a brother maintains friendship with you , as in a perfect friendship ,
the two friends live together happily , but in a deficient one relations sour soon. The brother who is only concerned about you, he does not seek any material gains in his friendship with you. Rather , he will make every effort to help , and that is true friendship. The brother who constantly seeks to harm you : such a brother is in fact an enemy disguised and masked. He looks for an opportunity to harm you. He cleverly hides his real face from you. He lies about you in your absence , and he is jealous of you. May he suffer eternal damnation : And the brother who benefits neither you nor himself , he is a truly stupid person. Avoid making friends with his type. Such a friend seeks superiority to you and
plots to possess whatever you have.
(Bihar al- Anwar Vol. 78 , P 119)
93 - Imam Hussain (as) said to one of his followers : Which one is preferred to you? Saving the life of a weak man who is being killed by an oppressor , or saving a poor believer from among our Shi’as , who is being misled by an unbeliever and an enemy to the household of the prophet , through false reasoning and arguing ?T
hen Imam himself replied : Certainly saving the poor believer , as God Almighty says. " Reviving a misguided man by enlightening him , is tantamount to reviving all the world's people.
"(Tafseer Al - Askari or Bihar al- Anwar, Vol. 2 , P. 9)
94 - For a king , the worst characteristics are three :fearing enemies ,
