We decided to give you advice

Letter written by school girls of a primary school to the Imam and his reply:
In the Name of God the Beneficent, the Merciful
Peace to the beloved Imam; we are the fifth grade students of the Fatimiyah Jihad School. Because in our religious text book Imam Muhammad Taqi (‘a) wrote a letter to the Commander of Sistan province and gave him recommendations, we too decided to write you a letter and to give you advise. But O Imam, we cannot give you advice because you are honorable and are far removed from all sins. O Imam, we small children want to make a request to you from the bottom of our hearts and hope to be deserving of it. First is that O our honorable father! O the wise sage of Jamaran! O the spirit of God! Please write to us in your own beautiful handwriting and give us advice...
With peace and blessings of God
In reply, the Imam wrote as follows: “O my beloved children! I have read your warm letter. How I wish you my beloved would advise me who is in need of your advice. I hope that you study your lessons well in a spirit of joy and with the same spirit perform your Islamic duties that develops human beings. You must be of good moral behavior and regard obedience and serving your parents as a blessing and favor and make them to be content with you. Accord respect to your teachers and try to be useful for Islam, the Islamic Republic and your country. I pray to the Almighty and Exalted God for the health, happiness and progress in both theory and practice of my beloved children. Peace to all of you.
