says in the Qur an that what causes human salvation and also it is good for the
hereafter, is that the believer brings a clean heart to the Hereafter with himself.

يَوْمَ لَا يَنفَعُ مَالٌ وَلَا بَنُونَ.
مَنْ أَتَى اللَّـهَ بِقَلْبٍ سَلِيمٍ
  شعراء 88-89

The Day when neither wealth nor
children will help. Except
for him who comes to God with a sound heart.”

Having a good sequel is a great deal of
key discussion that God has ordered in the Qur an

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اتَّقُوا اللَّـهَ حَقَّ
تُقَاتِهِ وَلَا تَمُوتُنَّ إِلَّا وَأَنتُم مُّسْلِمُونَ آل
عمران 102

O you who believe!
Revere God with due reverence, and do not die except as Muslims.

Both Abraham and Ya qub AS have
ordered their children that:

بِهَا إِبْرَاهِيمُ بَنِيهِ وَيَعْقُوبُ يَا بَنِيَّ إِنَّ اللَّـهَ اصْطَفَىٰ
لَكُمُ الدِّينَ فَلَا تَمُوتُنَّ إِلَّا وَأَنتُم مُّسْلِمُونَ

And Abraham exhorted his
sons, and Jacob, “O my sons, God has chosen this religion for you, so do not
die unless you have submitted.

And Imams who are pious in knowledge
have The same is prayer:

لَا تُزِغْ قُلُوبَنَا بَعْدَ إِذْ هَدَيْتَنَا وَهَبْ لَنَا مِن لَّدُنكَ
رَحْمَةً إِنَّكَ أَنتَ الْوَهَّابُ

Our Lord, do not cause
our hearts to swerve after You have guided us, and bestow on us mercy from Your
presence; You are the Giver.

Majlesi, in the book of Bihar al-Anwar, has opened a section about the narratives
that have come about having a good sequel and collected all narratives there.

There are
many examples in history. Pharaoh s wizards who came to fight with Moses peace
be upon him , but they turned good and the threats of Pharaoh did not affect
them. In the Karbala case, hor is a person who eventually became good. On the
other hand, there were people in history who eventually became evils, such as:
Iblis, Balaam Ba orah and berhsis Abed.

The sequel to
goodness is one of the important concerns of the Prophet and imams. There is a
narration of the Prophet pbuh that he says:

اَ يَزَالُ اَلْمُؤْمِنُ خَائِفاً مِنْ سُوءِ اَلْعَاقِبَةِ

A Mumin is
always frightened and fearful about the badness of sequel.

This is a
concern that a believer must always have.

Yusuf s peace be upon him concern that he asked god when he reached
the rank of Egyptian Chancellor was that:

تَوَفَّنِي مُسْلِمًا وَأَلْحِقْنِي بِالصَّالِحِينَundefined

my soul in submission, and unite me with the righteous.

al-Muminin s concern was that: when the Prophet s informed him about the
death of Amir al-Muminin during the month of Ramadan, Amir al-Mu minin peace
be upon him immediately asked: Is my death beside health of my religion?

introducing good solutions for goodness of sequel and what can we do to earn
that, I will introduce prayer from Imam Sajjad as in Sahifeh Sajjadiyah, the
eleventh prayer titled “Prayers for Khatam al-Khair” which is for
goodness of sequel.

But the
factors and solutions of having a good sequel:


the divine red lines and be careful and see what our disadvantages are and to
fix it. Because no one has all of disadvantages. Everyone knows and eliminates their
own disadvantage and the underlying factor. Someones disadvantage is reputation,
and for someone else its presidency, for someone it is wealth and…


إِنَّ الَّذِينَ قَالُوا رَبُّنَا اللَّـهُ ثُمَّ
اسْتَقَامُوا تَتَنَزَّلُ عَلَيْهِمُ الْمَلَائِكَةُ أَلَّا تَخَافُوا وَلَا
تَحْزَنُوا وَأَبْشِرُوا بِالْجَنَّةِ الَّتِي كُنتُمْ تُوعَدُونَ

Surely, those who say: “Our
Lord is God,” and then go straight, the angels will descend upon them: “Do not
fear, and do not grieve, but rejoice in the news of the Garden which you were

We all
believe that our God is Allah and we say it day by day, but that is not enough.
You have to endure. Endurance means stability in religion. Demanding
perseverance and seeking resistance to things that hurt human religion and
beliefs. A example for that was Somayeh in the history of Islam, who stood firm
and gave her life, either Yasir and Meysam, who stood firm, or Imam Hussein s
supporters. Endurance is sometimes with life, sometimes with property and
sometimes with language.

Amir Al-Momenin s Love:

One day the
Prophet pbuh and Amir al-Mu minin as walked with one of the companions on
the palms of Medina. Somewhere the Prophet Muhammad stopped and told Amir
al-Mu minin AS :

أنت أخي ووزيري وخليفتي في أهلي تقضى ديني وتبرئ ذمتي، من أحبك في حياة مني
فقد قضى له بالجنة، ومن أحبك في حياة منك بعدى ختم الله له بالأمن، والايمان، ومن
أحبك بعدك ولم يرك ختم الله له بالأمن والايمان وآمنه يوم الفزع الأكبر، ومن مات
وهو يبغضك يا علي مات ميتة جاهلية يحاسبه الله عز وجل بما عمل في الاسلام.

The one who
loves you, God will bless him in the end. Amir al-Momenin s peace and
blessings affection and his friendship are one the most important things for
goodness of sequel. Of course, it s not just like that to say that I love Amir
al-Mu minin AS . But also doing anything that Amir al-Muminin AS expects
from us.

Correct use of divine blessings:

narration from Imam Sadiq as :

إِنْ أَرَدْتَ أَنْ يُخْتَمَ بِخَيْرٍ عَمَلُكَ حَتَّى تُقْبَضَ وَ أَنْتَ فِي
أَفْضَلِ اَلْأَعْمَالِ فَعَظِّمْ لِلَّهِ حَقَّهُ أَنْ تَبْذُلَ نَعْمَاءَهُ فِي
مَعَاصِيهِ وَ أَنْ تَغْتَرَّ بِحِلْمِهِ عَنْكَ وَ أَكْرِمْ كُلَّ مَنْ
وَجَدْتَهُ يَذْكُرُنَا أَوْ يَنْتَحِلُ مَوَدَّتَنَا ثُمَّ لَيْسَ عَلَيْكَ
صَادِقاً كَانَ أَوْ كَاذِباً إِنَّمَا لَكَ نِيَّتُكَ وَ عَلَيْهِ كَذِبُه

Do not spend
God s blessing on sin. Everything has a usage. Divine blessings have a
particular use. The use of language is for the sake of God, for goodness, for
good words; and it’s not for lies, absenteeism, slander, and ridicule.undefined

Do not be proud of God s affection

God has
forgiveness for the iniquity and sin of men. God does not have to punish
everyone immediately. Incidentally God gives the sinner a chance. As he gave
Pharaoh so much opportunity. In the term of the word, it is said to be the
tradition of istidraj.

فَلَمَّا نَسُوا مَا ذُكِّرُوا بِهِ فَتَحْنَا عَلَيْهِمْ
أَبْوَابَ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ حَتَّىٰ إِذَا فَرِحُوا بِمَا أُوتُوا أَخَذْنَاهُم
بَغْتَةً فَإِذَا هُم مُّبْلِسُونَ انعام 44

sent messengers to communities before you, and We afflicted them with suffering
and hardship, that they may humble themselves.

Respect and reverence for one who speaks of Ahlul Bayt as .undefined
