Amir-ul Mominin Mowla Murtaza Ali (A.S.) says in His Holy Qalam Mubarak: O Momins, be careful and remember that black hair of your head has now turned to grey. It is a message of the Angel of Death. His message states that now you should be prepared for your departure from this material world. The message also states that you have to leave your present home and that your new home will in the GRAVE. The message of the Angel of Death also states that you will have to leave your present home at any time either in the morning or in the evening and then you will sleep in the grave.
Amir-ul Mominin Mowla Murtaza Ali(A.S.) says in His Holy Qalam Mubarak: O Momins, this material world is full of sorrows and pains. There is terrible lamentation everywhere in this world. You will find people sad and always lamenting about their own daily problems. Take off the cotton pad from your ears. In other words, discard ignorance and do not keep deaf ears towards the cries and happenings in this world and you will find a terrible condition of people who are constantly suffering. Look at the piece of wood; it makes a noise. It is the cry of the wood while being sawn with the blade.

Give glad tidings to your soul, when you have exercised patience. The creature that has been patient, has been granted success by the Lord. Knowing the Creator's entire creation, if anyone does harm, be patient. Then through that, you will truly win over him. Keep this in your mind.
saburee teree tuj fateh deve, jeese keesee upar aave balaa;
dunee-aa ghar maatmakaa, jeese dekho so rotaa hae zaaro zaar;
gafalatkaa ddattaa kaanuse kaaddho, to suno kaysee paddee hae pukaar;
