He had experienced the taste of many sins; however, he still looked for a way to free himself from his vicious ending. Destiny guided him to the noble descendant of the Prophet of Mercy (PBUH&HP). So he spoke out his cause to Imam Hossein (PBUH):

I am a sinful man that cannot resist any sin. Give me an advice.

Imam (PBUH) replied: Observe these five rules; then feel free to do any sin.

First, don’t receive your provisions from Allah (SWT); then do what you want.

Second, exit the territory of Allah (SWT); then do what you want.

Third, go somewhere that Allah (SWT) does not see you; then commit any sin.

Fourth, when the angle of death came to you, save yourself from him; then do as you wish.

Fifth, when the angel of hell wants to put you in fire, don’t enter; then do whatever sin you desire.
