Orator : Ayatollah Ansari

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

الحمدلله رب العالمین الصلاة والسلام علی اشرف الانبیاء والمرسلین سیدنا و نبینا طبیب قلوبنا و شفیع ذنوبنا العبد المؤید الرسول المسدد المحمود الاحمد ابی القاسم المصطفی محمّد و علی اهل بیته الطیبین الطاهرین و اصحابه المنتجبین.

عبادالله! أوصيكم و نفسي بتقوی الله و اتّباع امره و نهیه.


Imam Ali (peace be upon him), in verse 239, says:

مَنْ أَطَاعَ التَّوَانِيَ ضَيَّعَ الْحُقُوقَ

Anyone who obeys weakness will ruin the rights. These rights include that persons rights, the rights of others, and the right of God. Because a lazy man loses everything at his tasks, For example at prayer he doesn’t have enough attention. Which in the Quran says to the hypocrites:

وَإِذَا قَامُوا إِلَى الصَّلَاةِ قَامُوا كُسَالَىٰ.

Usually, humans are caught up with some kind of laziness that creates problems for them and these kind of laziness are mentioned:


First: Laziness in religious duties. Sometimes people are lazy towards their religious duties and obedience to the divine commandments; while they believe in God and his commands, but they don’t attend to them because of laziness.

The bases of this kind of laziness are in a few things:

A: Doubts; if there is a doubt in the minds of anyone about religious affairs, hes going to lose his faith soon. The solution is to eliminate these doubts in the person's mind, so that it doesn’t cause laziness in performing religious duties.

B: Bad Friends; Bad Friend Causes Laziness in Individual Beliefs. When on the Day of Resurrection they ask to some of the people of hell, why are you in this situation, they will answer:

وَكُنَّا نَخُوضُ مَعَ الْخَائِضِينَ

We accompanied bad friends.

As a result, one has to be careful about choosing his friends and accompanies.

C: Feeling guilty and frustrated of divine blessing; People may have lost their hope of divine blessings because of the past sinful acts, and it is conceivable that due to the heavy burden of their sins, their repentance is not accepted by the Lord of the universe.

This makes a person no longer to abide by his religious duties. But God says in holly Quran:

 قُلْ يَا عِبَادِيَ الَّذِينَ أَسْرَفُوا عَلَىٰ أَنفُسِهِمْ لَا تَقْنَطُوا مِن رَّحْمَةِ اللَّـهِ إِنَّ اللَّـهَ يَغْفِرُ الذُّنُوبَ جَمِيعًا إِنَّهُ هُوَ الْغَفُورُ الرَّحِيمُ. 

Say, “O My servants who have transgressed against themselves: do not despair of God’s mercy, for God forgives all sins. He is indeed the Forgiver, the Clement.”


D: Failure by families, sometimes families themselves, are lazy to carry out their religious duties. A child growing up in this kind of family is expected to be lazy in performing religious duties.

One of the solutions to this problem is to think about the effects of action.

Second: ethical laziness; for example, a person has become accustomed to an ethical ugly act and he is lazy to leave that act, such as having a bad language, or being accustomed to falsehood or lying. The solution is to set a fine for himself so that his will to reinforce this bad habit gets weak. (For example, make a vow)

Thrid: Laziness in employment; employment has a positive effect in human spirits and causes mental vibrancy in humans, although when man is good financial . Like water, it stays If water stays in a same place for a long period, it will be obsolesce. Especially in those countries where social aid is paid by the state, one should not feel unnecessary for society. In terms of Islam, man must be useful for society. And he himself must seek to meet his own needs. God says in the Quran:

وَلَا تَنسَ نَصِيبَكَ مِنَ الدُّنْيَا

and [yet], do not forget your share of the world.

Joblessness, other than the loss of vitality, brings with itself other harms, such as moral corruption and....

4. Social laziness; If a person has a lazy social relationship, his relationship with the community will be cut off. Duties such as visiting others, visiting sick people, attending a funeral procession, which is from the rights of a Muslim to his Muslim brother.

5. Laziness in education and knowledge, which stops human knowledge and makes the mind of man sluggish. Human beings should not be confine of their knowledge at any stage and level of science or education. But he must seek knowledge and study to the end of his life.
