1167 - موجِباتُ الضَّلَالَةِ


(وَمَنْ يَتَبَدَّلِ الكُفْرَ بِالْإيْمانِ فَقَدْ ضَلَّ سَواءَ السَّبِيلِ).1

“Whoever changes faith for unfaith certainly strays from the right way.”2

(وَمَنْ يَكْفُرْ بِاللَّهِ وَمَلائِكَتِهِ وَكُتُبِهِ وَرُسُلِهِ وَاليَوْمِ الآخِرِ فَقَدْ ضَلَّ ضَلالاً بَعِيْداً).3

“Whoever disbelieves in Allah and His angels, His Books and His apostles and the Last Day, has certainly strayed in far error.”4

(وَمَنْ يَعْصِ اللَّهَ وَرَسُولَهُ فَقَدْ ضَلَّ ضَلالاً مُبِيْناً).5

“And whoever disobeys Allah and His Apostle has certainly strayed in manifest error.”6

(أفَرَأيْتَ مَنِ اتَّخَذَ إِلهَهُ هَواهُ وَأضَلَّهُ اللَّهُ عَلَى عِلمٍ وَخَتَمَ عَلَى سَمْعِهِ وَقَلْبِهِ وَجَعَلَ عَلَى بَصَرِهِ غِشاوَةً فَمَنْ يَهْدِيهِ مِنْ بَعْدِ اللَّهِ أفَلَا تَذَكَّرُونَ).7

“Have you seen him who has taken his desire to be his god and whom Allah has led astray knowingly, and set a seal upon his hearing and his heart, and drawn a blind on his sight? So who will guide him after Allah? Will you not then take admonition?”8

3750.الإمامُ عليٌّ عليه السلام : لِكُلِّ ضَلَّةٍ عِلَّةٌ، ولِكُلِّ ناكِثٍ شُبهَةٌ .9

3750.Imam Ali (AS) said, ‘For every misguidance there is a cause, and behind every disloyal act is an obscurity.’10

3751.الإمامُ عليٌّ عليه السلام : ألَا وإنّ شَرائعَ الدِّينِ واحِدَةٌ، وسُبُلَهُ قاصِدَةٌ، مَن أخَذَ بها لَحِقَ وغَنِمَ، ومَن وَقَفَ عَنها ضَلَّ ونَدِمَ .11

3751.Imam Ali (AS) said, ‘Know that indeed the paths to religion are one, and its courses lead straight ahead. Whoever follows them attains the objective, and whoever stops, moving away from them, strays and ends up regretful.’12

3752.الإمامُ عليٌّ عليه السلام : اُنظُرُوا أهلَ بَيتِ نَبِيِّكُم فَالْزَمُوا سَمْتَهُم ... لا تَسبِقُوهُم فَتَضِلُّوا، ولا تَتَأخَّرُوا عَنهُم فَتَهلِكُوا .13

3752.Imam Ali (AS) said, ‘Look at the household of your Prophet and adhere to their direction…Do not overtake them, for then you will stray, nor lag behind them lest you fall into ruin.’14

3753.الإمامُ عليٌّ عليه السلام : مَن يَطلُبِ الهِدايَةَ مِن غَيرِ أهلِها يَضِلَّ .15

3753.Imam Ali (AS) said, ‘He who seeks guidance from the wrong source goes astray.’16
