Tanbih al-Khawatir, v. 2, p. 170; Mizan ul Hikmah, page No. 782

الإمامُ زينُ العابدينَ (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ): إنَّ قَسوَةَ البِطنَةِ وفَترَةَ المَيلَةِ وسُكرَ الشِّبَعِ وغِرَّةَ المُلكِ مِمّا يُثَبِّطُ ويُبطِئُ عَنِ العَمَلِ ويُنسِي الذِّكرَ.

Verily filling the stomach, weakness of will, the intoxication of being fully satiated and the delusion of power, all hinder and delay one from the performance [of good deeds] and cause one to forget Allah.
Imām `Alī ibn Husayn (a.s.)
Bihar al-Anwar, v. 78, p. 129, no. 1; Mizan ul Hikmah, page No. 783

الإمامُ عليٌّ (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ): مَن نَسِيَ اللّه‏َ سبحانَهُ أنساهُ اللّه‏ُ نفسَهُ وأعمى قَلبَهُ .

Whoever forgets Allah, Glory be to Him, Allah makes him forget himself and blinds his heart

الإمامُ‏الباقرُ أو الإمامُ‏الصّادقُ(: لايَكتُبُ المَلَكُ إلّا ما يَسمَعُ ، قالَ اللّه‏ُ عزّوجلّ: «وَاذْكُـرْ رَبَّكَ في نَفسِكَ»: لا يَعلمُ ثوابَ ذلكَ الذِّكرِ في نَفسِ العَبدِ غيرُ اللّه‏ِ تعالى.

The angel only writes down what he hears, but when Allah, Mighty and Exalted, has said, “And remember your Lord within your heart…”, no one knows the reward of that remembrance in the heart of the servant except Allah, most High.

Zurarah narrates that he asked Imam Muhammad Baqir (a.s.), “What deed Allah likes best?” Imam (a.s.) replied, “His glorification.”
