1073. Enjoinment of Consultation

(وَالَّذِينَ اسْتَجابُوا لِرَبِّهِم وَأقامُوا الصَّلاةَ وَأمرُهُمْ شُورَى‏ بَيْنَهُمْ وَمِمَّا رَزَقناهُم يُنْفِقُونَ).1

“Those who answer their Lord, maintain the prayer, and their affairs are (executed) by counsel among themselves, and they spend out of what We have provided them with.”2

3392.الإمامُ عليٌّ عليه السلام : الاستِشارةُ عَينُ الهِدايَةِ، وقد خاطَرَ مَنِ استَغنى‏ بِرَأيِهِ .3

3392.Imam Ali (AS) said, ‘Seeking to consult someone [in one’s affairs] is guidance in itself, and the one who suffices himself with his own opinion endangers himself.’4

3393.الإمامُ عليٌّ عليه السلام : لا ظَهِيرَ كالمُشاوَرَةِ .5

3393.Imam Ali (AS) said, ‘There is no better support than good counsel.’6

3394.الإمامُ عليٌّ عليه السلام : إنّما حُضَّ على المُشاوَرَةِ لأنّ رَأيَ المُشيرِ صِرْفٌ ، ورَأيَ المُستَشِيرِ مَشُوبٌ بالهَوى‏.7

3394.Imam Ali (AS) said, ‘Seeking counsel has been highly emphasised because the opinion of the counsellor is unadulterated whereas the opinion of the one seeking counsel is polluted with his own whims.’8
