He has said: Whenever an obedient cuts ties totally from others besides God, the first consequence is that he becomes needless from the people. And said: Association with the wicked and sinful is a disease and its remedy is abstention from them. And said: whenever the fear of God takes place in heart, un-necessary talk does not flow from the tongue. The Almighty God says, the one will reach me is the one who bears for us (that is bearing calamities coming from us).
Of the disposition and generosities of His Holiness it suffices that he stated: whenever difficulties comes upon me, I see Hazrat Mostafa (S) in my dreams and ask about that problem.
