lecturing in a Razavi Shrine’s special propagative-religious program, Hujjat al-Islam wa al-Muslimini Mahdi Mandegari said, “If human’s life be based on what has been mentioned in Qur’an, he would reach to happiness and perfection”. This special program was held at Imam Khomeini (R.A.) Grand Portico.
He added, “Living in this world has got two exoteric and esoteric aspects. The exoteric aspect can be seen while the esoteric one is not visible to us. In the area of business, for instance, it seems to be just making deals and selling and buying which are done at the market. However, inner aspect of which is the blessing of the income known only by God”.
“If our deals and businesses are based on the divine orders mentioned in Qur’an, God will bless our income and property and if we don’t consider religious standards in our work, our property will not be blessed”, this religious expert said.
He went on, “If human believes in the unseen world and finds God as an always present observer of the his life and if he knows that he must be accountable of his actions on the day of judgment, he will not commit any sin”.
Hujjat al-Islam wa al-Muslimin Mandegari asserted, “Having such kind of view point in life will lead the man to overtake others in doing good deeds. This kind of view point will also help him to take refuge in God from all evils and sins”.
In continuation of his lecture, he elaborated on the characteristics of good deeds and stressed, “Good deed has got three important characteristics; pleasure and satisfaction of God, honor of the human on the day of judgment, and Satan’s anger”.
“Whenever your deed enjoys these features, you can be sure that it is a good deed. For example, since observing Islamic veil makes Satan and his followers angry, it is a good deed which brings God’s satisfaction and also promote man’s level and position on the day of judgment”, religious expert stated.
He added, “On contrary to the good deed which makes God happy and Satan angry, committing sins will make God angry and Satan happy. Therefore, a wise and thoughtful man never buys God’s anger and Satan’s happiness by doing evils”.
