 The Prophet (SAWA) said, 'The best of what has been placed in the heart is conviction.' Amali al-Saduq, p. 395, no. 1

رسولُ اللَّهِ صلى اللَّه عليه وآله :  أمّا عَلامَةُ المُوقِنِ فَسِتَّةٌ : أيْقَنَ باللَّهِ حَقّاً فآمَنَ بهِ ، وأيقَنَ بأنّ المَوتَ حقٌّ فحَذِرَهُ ، وأيقَنَ بأنّ البَعثَ حَقٌّ فخافَ الفَضيحَةَ ، وأيقَنَ بأنّ الجَنّةَ حَقٌّ فاشتاقَ إلَيها ، وأيقَنَ بأنّ النّارَ حَقٌّ فظَهَرَ سَعيُهُ لِلنَّجاةِ مِنها ، وأيقَنَ بأنّ الحِسابَ حَقٌّ فحاسَبَ نَفسَهُ . تحف العقول : 20 .

 The Prophet (SAWA) said, 'There are six signs of a person of conviction: he has truly attained conviction in Allah and believed in Him, he is convinced that death is true and he is wary of it, he is convinced that Resurrection is true and he fears shame , he is convinced that Heaven is true and he longs for it, he is convinced that Hell is true and his endeavour is apparent in his wanting to be saved from it, he is convinced that the Account is true and so he takes account of himself.' Tuhaf al-Uqul, p. 20

رسولُ اللَّهِ صلى اللَّه عليه وآله :  إنّ مِن ضَعفِ اليَقينِ أن تُرضِيَ النّاسَ بِسَخَطِ اللَّهِ تعالى‏ ، و أن تَحمَدَهُم على‏ رِزقِ اللَّهِ تعالى‏ ، و أن تَذُمَّهُم على‏ ما لَم يُؤتِكَ اللَّهُ . بحار الأنوار : 77 / 185 / 30 .

 The Prophet (SAWA) said, 'Weakness of conviction is that you satisfy people by displeasing Allah Almighty, and that you praise them for the sustenance that Allah Almighty has given you, and you blame them for what Allah has not given you.' Bihar al-Anwar, v. 77, p. 185, p. 30
