Imam Ali(pbuh) warns us not to be like some people. Those who hope for the Hereafter without acting … admiring the righteous people and yet not acting like them.

Hawzah News Agency – The important instructions of the first Imam of Shiites (peace be upon him):

لا تَكُن مِمَّن يَرجو الآخِرَةَ بِغَيرِ العَمَلِ... يُحِبُّ الصّالِحينَ ولا يَعمَلُ عَمَلَهُم، ويُبغِضُ المُذنِبينَ وهُوَ أحَدُهُم... يَخافُ عَلى‏ غَيرِهِ بِأدنى‏ مِن ذَنبِهِ، ويَرجو لِنَفسِهِ بِأكثَرَ مِن عَمَلِهِ... يُقَصِّرُ إذا عَمِلَ، ويُبالِغُ إذا سَألَ... فهُوَ بِالقَولِ مُدِلٌّ، ومِنَ العَمَلِ مُقِلٌّ

 

 

'Do not be among those who hope for the Hereafter without acting … admiring the righteous people and yet not acting like them, and despising the sinners whilst he is one of them … he fears for others worse chastisement than what he himself deserves for his sin, and for himself hopes for greater [reward] than his actions deserve … When he acts he falls short of the action, and when he asks something, he exaggerates … so he is presumptuous in his speech though performing little action.'
