Himran Ibn ‘Ayun narrates: I came to visit Imam Muhammad al-Baqir (PBUH) and asked him to advise me! And he said: “I advise you to be pious and fear Allah (SWT)…”1

Piety results in a clean life from any aspect. A clean life requires avoidance of sins at all costs. A clean life will eventually lead to a clean death and if one dies with many sins, then he won’t be able to enter the paradise.

In the end the one who lived a pious life hears upon entering the paradise: “Peace be on you, you shall be happy”2

We have prayed a lifetime to have a good ending after this life. A good ending can only occurs with piety as a driving force.3

The Roshd website congratulates the 1st of Rajab, the birthday anniversary of kind Imam, Imam Muhammad ibn Ali al-Baqir (PBUH), to all Muslims and especially you dear friend.
