He had no expectations from me

One observes that any person, who has a grandparent suffering from an illness, knows that he expects those around to look after and take care of him; but as far as I can remember, the Imam never had the least expectation even in a single case. Even the lady of the household says that in the course of sixty years of living with him – they lived exactly sixty years together – she does not remember the Imam ever having an expectation from her. The only expectation he had from us was that we should not commit any sinful act.
