In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

The Cure of the Souls


Once, a man went to Imam Hussain (PBUH) and said, “I commit all sorts of sins and refuse none. Give me an advice I can benefit from.”

Imam Hussain (PBUH) said, “Take five things into consideration (before committing any sin) and then commit any sin you wish.” The Imam then began naming them, “Do not eat from the sustenance (Rizq) of Allah (SWT) and then commit any sin you wish.”

The man replied, “So what shall I eat? Everything in the world is provided by the Allah and belongs to Him.”

Imam Hussain (PBUH) said, “Leave the Kingdom (Mulk) of the Allah and you may sin all you want.”

The man replied, “This one is more difficult than the previous. Everywhere is His kingdom.”

Imam Hussain (PBUH) said, “Go somewhere so that the Allah cannot see you and then commit any sin you want.”

The man replied, “Truly, can one hide from Allah?” 

Imam Hussain (PBUH) said, ”When the angel of death comes to take your life, reject him and then commit any sin that you want. And fifth, do not enter the hell when you are taken there and then commit any sin that you want.”

The man said, “That is enough for me O grandson of the Messenger of Allah. From now on I will not perform any deed, which displeases Allah.”
