Al-Harith al-A'war said: While passing through the mosque I found the people engrossed in (prohibited) talk, so I went to Ali and told him. He asked if that was really so, and when I assured him that it was, he said: I heard Allah's Messenger (peace be upon him) say, "Dissension will certainly come." I asked him what is the way out of it, to which he replied,  "Allah's Book is the way (out), for it contains information of what has happened before you, news of what will happen after you, and a decision regarding matters which occur among you. It is the distinguisher and is not jesting. If any overweening person abandons it Allah will break him, and if anyone seeks guidance elsewhere Allah will lead him astray. It is Allah's strong cord, it is the wise reminder, it is the straight path, it is that by which the desires do not swerve nor the tongues become confused, and the learned cannot grasp it completely. It does not become worn out by repetition and its wonders do not come to an end. It is that of which the jinn did not hesitate to say when they heard it, 'We have heard a wonderful recital which guides to what is right, and we believe in it.' He who utters it speaks the truth, he who acts according to it is rewarded, he who pronounces judgment according to it is  just, and he who invites people to it guides to a straight path."

All of you are poor except him whom I have enriched, but if you ask of me I will  give you provision; all of you are sinners except him whom I have preserved  (from sin), but if any of you knows that I have power to pardon and ask my pardon I will pardon him, and I do not care. If the first and the last of you, the living and the dead among you, those of you who are fresh and those of you who are withered, all had hearts as pious as the heart of the most pious of My servants, that would not add as much as a gnat's wing to My dominion. If the  first and last of you, the living and the dead among you, those of you who are fresh and those of you who are withered, had all hearts as wretched as the heart of the most wretched of My servants, that would not diminish as much as a gnat's wing from My dominion. If the first and last of you, the living and the dead among you, those of you who are fresh and those of you who are  withered, were gathered in one plain, each one of you asking all he could hope for, and I were to grant the request of each of you who asked, that would cause no more diminution in My dominion than if one of you passed by the sea and, after dipping a needle in it, took it out, that being because I am  Generous and Glorious, doing what I wish. My giving is speech and my punishment is speech. My command to a thing when I want it is just to say to it `Be' and it comes into being."
