Islam considers man to be the most dignified among all creatures. He has been deputed as Allah’s vicegerent to execute whatever his Master enjoins him to do on earth. He has been granted a sublime status as a reward to absolute submission to his Creator’s will. Allah has revealed His divine laws to man, demanding him to demonstrate strict discipline and restraint towards fulfilling his humanly desires. He has been urged to lead his life in accordance with these supreme tenets, which should be clearly reflective from his conduct and comportment. This study seeks to elicit man’s behaviour, character and reaction vis-a-vis, Allah’s absolute wisdom and prudence. It elucidates man’s moral and ethical standards by which he distinguishes between the vice and the virtue. It is a classified compilation of the sayings of Imam Ali (AS), which includes extensive references on the said subject. All possible effort has been made to translate and interpret these divine sayings in a simplest but profound form. A thorough study and understanding of this book could significantly help you reformulate your life in compliance with the laws of nature.
