Imam Sajjad (as) said “And the faithful his practice is intermingled with forbearance and clemency, he sits at a place to learn; and keeps silent to remain sound; does not speak out a word trusted to him among his friends; and he does not conceal a witness about the strangers and does not practice any thing from the righteousness out of pomp and show and does not abandon it out of shame and shyness. If he is praised he gets afraid from it that the conversation of those praising him (would put him in a state of pride) and (so) he repents over his sins which they are unaware of and the ignorance of ignorant ones does not harm him.”[i]
