In the Name of Allah, the Most Merciful,

the Most Compassionate

Praise be to Allah, and may His peace and blessings be upon Muhammad,

and upon his family and companions, and all those who follow him

Once a Bedouin asked Imam Hussain (as) what is the best thing to do? Imam Hussain (as) replied, "Belief in God".

Bedouin asked again, what is the best means of deliverance from destruction, Imam Hussain (as) said, "Trust in God".

Bedouin asked, what man's ornament is, Imam Hussain (as) replied, "knowledge associated with intelligence".

Bedouin insisted, if this be not available, what then, Imam Hussain (as) replied, "Wealth accompanied with generosity".

What if this be out of reach, Imam Hussain (as) said, "Poverty allied with patience".

What if this be not practicable? Imam Hussain (as) smiled and said, let the lightening consume the man to ashes.
He then gave whatever money he had with him to fulfill his needs
