He (a.s.) said: ‘There is nothing with me (a.s.) regarding it’. The man said, ‘We are for Allah and we are returning to Him [2:156]! This is the Imam (a.s.) of the Obligatory obedience. I asked him (a.s.) a question, and he (a.s.) claims there isn’t anything with him (a.s.) regarding it.

He said, ‘Here I am!’ He (a.s.) said: ‘The word regarding it is like this’. Then he (a.s.) turned towards me and said: ‘If we (a.s.) are not increased, it would deplete what is with us (a.s.)’’.
