IMAM HOSSEIN (A.S.): DO YOU WANT TO STAY AWAY FROM SINS?

A man came to Imam Hossein (a.s.) and said, "I frequently disobey Allah and cannot prevent myself from sins; therefore, please, give me an advice O son of the Prophet so that I may keep away from sins." Imam Hossein (a.s.): "Do five things and then commit sins as much as you want." Sinner: "Please tell me what those five things are." Imam Hossein (a.s.): "(1) Do not eat from the provisions of Allah, and then do whatever you like." Sinner: "Then what will I be able to eat because whatever there is in his universe is from Allah!" Imam Hossein (a.s.): "(2) Then leave the earth of Allah, and then do whatever you like." Sinner: "O Imam, this is even more difficult than the first! If I leave the earth, then where would I live-all belongs to Allah."
