Imam once wrote in his letter to Ali ibne Babweh Qummi:
"Praise be to Allah. As you are from our shias so I advise you:
• Be pious and virtuous • Forgive and pardon the mistakes of people • Suppress your anger • Do sila-e-Rehmi (do good with your relatives) • Help the needy • Get acquaintance with Holy Quran • Establish prayer (salat/namaz) and perform ibadat
follow my commandments and induce others to do so. "
