The Supreme Religious Authority has stated during the second sermon of the blessed Friday prayer for the day of 6th of Rabi' al-Thani 1440 AH, corresponding to December 14, 2018, which was held in the holy shrine of Imam al-Hussayn (peace be upon him) and was led by his eminence Sayed Ahmad al-Safi, several ethical and educational points that affect our daily lives, such as:
- The story that happened in front of the Commander of the Faithful (peace be upon him) between ‘Ammar Ibn Yasser and Mughira bin Sho’ba before the Camel battle.
- Imam Ali (peace be upon him) said to ‘Ammar: "Leave Mughira alone. He wants only that much from the religion which guarantees his world (i.e. worldly gains). He purposely makes things dubious for himself and his idea is that these doubts should cover his lapses and serve as an excuse for his deviations.”
- There are some people who purposely makes things dubious for them so their doubts serve as an excuse for their mistakes. And so, they are intentionally unable to distinguish between the right and falsehood.
- The person is aware and certain of the matter but he is closing his eyes deliberately to find excuses to others, because as said by the Prince of eloquence; Imam Ali (peace be upon him): "He wants only that much from the religion which guarantees his world (i.e. worldly gains)."
- Many people apologize saying that the things were dubious for them and they could not see clear. Here, we say that such things can happen in certain matters, but not in the obvious subjects, as the right is clear and the falsehood is clear. And those who were not being able to take the right decision because it was a dubious matter, say this excuse only because they had other interests.
- The person must be precise and conscious, and must deal with things wisely for fear of making things dubious for themselves. As this is a serious case, when the person deliberately do this to not take a position, and be in doubt.
- And this is a lesson we have to learn from the eloquent words of the Commander of the Faithful (peace be upon him) in all sides of our life.
