Rasa – The teacher in the Islamic Seminary of Mashhad stated that the salvation of society ‎can be accomplished by having piety and said, “It’s in our interest to be more and more ‎pious.” ‎

RNA – Speaking during his class on Islamic ethics at the Ayatollah Khoei Seminary in ‎Mashhad, Ayatollah Sayyed Jafar Sayyedan discussed the benefits of taqwa or piety and ‎God-wariness and the signs of the pious with respect to Nahj al-Balaghah [‘The Peak of ‎Eloquence’].‎

The teacher in the Islamic Seminary of Mashhad said that in Nahj al-Balaghah, Imam Ali ‎stated more than fifty signs of piety and added, “Piety is summarized in three things, a ‎serious decision to perform good deeds, abandoning sins and good morals.”‎

He added, “One who takes care to avoid those acts which aren’t correct and earnestly ‎makes attempts to move toward the state of good actions is considered as a pious person.”‎

Ayatollah Sayyedan referred to some of the lofty statements on piety in Nahj al-Balaghah ‎and said, “Whosoever engages in piety and that which pleases God, God establishes him on ‎the path of salvation which means that obtaining this salvation will not be easy but at the ‎same time as he is experiencing difficulty, his soul will be calm as he knows that he has ‎fulfilled his duty and he will ultimately obtain a good result and will be granted eternal bliss.”‎

The Iranian scholar stated that the salvation of society can be accomplished by having piety ‎and said, “It’s in our interest to be more and more pious.”‎

Referring to verse two of Surah al-Talaq [‘The Divorce’] on the benefits of piety, he stated, ‎‎“A person who in his speech and all aspects of life, commits to not sinning and to move ‎towards acting in accordance with the will of God will receive good in this world and in the ‎hereafter.”‎

Ayatollah Sayyedan added, “In verses four and seven of Surah al-Talaq, God also promises ‎to those who are pious that He will correct their work and forgive their sins.”‎
‎ ‎
His Eminence said, “God has guaranteed that anyone who is truly pious, He will turn their ‎afflictions into blessings and their discomforts into comforts and will give him a spirit such ‎that he will be in patient and thankful in the face of difficulties and also, God will grant him ‎sustenance in regard to that which he doesn’t even think about.”‎

He pointed out, “The expression of someone who has piety in the face of sedition, God will ‎make the space so clear that he easily recognizes path of righteousness and falsehood and ‎knows his own duty.”‎
