This is a such beautiful quote:
Imam Sadiq (a) has said: “The number of those who die because of committing sins is larger than the number of those who die because of their natural death, and the number of those who live because of doing good deeds is larger than the number of those who live because of their real age”.
In my opinion, there are some very important views or implications from the quote:
- When, how and where we will die is surely a mystery, but it is not predestined. There is causal relationship between our death and our deeds.
- We must be carefull in any aspect of our life, because law of causation is not limited in material word, either it is also applied in spiritual world and in any other world that may be exist. There is always a particular consequence for any action we did.
- Morality is not only a convention. It does exist and has its own law. It is not only other people who could produce morality consequences toward us. Nature could also respond to any our moral action.
