The Tenth Talk To make one miss the mandatories
prompting people to busy in optional rites
Sometimes Satan encourages people to give more attention
to optional matters to make them miss the mandatory
duties. For example, he prompts a person to proceed
on a pilgrimage to the mausoleum of Imam Reza (a.s.).
he convinces him that performing this optional pilgrimage
will bring him lots of reward in the Hereafter. The
person neglects his mandatory duty of providing for
his old parents and family and proceeds on the pilgrimage.
Satan thus makes people overlook mandatory duties in
the performance of the optional.
