His Eminence the Grand Ayatollah Sayyed Sadiq al-Husseini al-Shirazi, may Allah prolong his life, has long insisted on insight and resilience in order to achieve happiness in both countries.

This came during a meeting with Sheikh Suhaib Habli, a Sunni cleric from the Lebanese city of Sidon, who handed a report to the Grand Ayatollah on the religious preaching and activities as well as problems faced in these fields. 

His Eminence said that the world has multiple markets, and if one enters one of these markets and does not succeed, he tries another market, and if he does not succeed in the second market, he will try a third, and so on until he succeeds. 

The Grand Ayatollah added, there is only one market in the Hereafter, which is the market of truth. He brought the example of Abi Dhar al-Ghafari, peace be upon him, who was deported from his homeland and lived alone as a stranger and died of hunger, however lived happily in this world and the Hereafter due to his insight and resilience.
