Description: Imam Ali (a.s.) said, ‘Beware of anxiety, for it cuts off hope, weakens action, and brings sorrow. And know that the way out [of trouble] lies in two things: resourcefulness where a stratagem exists, and perseverance wherever stratagems fail.’
Description: Imam Ali (a.s.), upon hearing the weeping of women for the dead killed in the battle of Siffin, said, ‘Do your women prevail over you from what I can hear?! Can you not prohibit them from making this din?!’
الإمامُ عليٌّ (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ) ـ لمّا سَمِعَ بُكاءَ النِّساءِ علي قَتْلي صِفِّينَ ـ: أتَغلِبُكُم نِساؤكُم علي ما أسْمَعُ ؟! ألا تَنهونَهُنَّ عن هذا الرَّنينِ؟!

Description: Imam al-Baqir (a.s.) said, ‘The worst expression of grief is screaming and wailing with loud cries, beating one’s face and chest, tearing out one’s hair; and a man who takes up wailing is a man who has abandoned patience.’
