Transit of Venus 6/5/12

Amir al-Mu'minin Imām 'Alī ibn Abī Tālib (a.s.) said:
to Qanbar when he wished to insult a man who had insulted him,

"Careful Qanbar! Leave your insulter to his disdain and you will please
the Beneficent Lord, displease Satan and punish thereby your enemy,
for by the One who split the grain and created the breeze, there is no stance
better than clemency with which a believer can please his Lord, and nothing
like silence to offend Satan, and an idiot is best punished by ignoring him."

[Reference: Amali al-Mufid, page 118, no. 2]
