أَبِي رَحِمَهُ اَللَّهُ قَالَ حَدَّثَنِي عَبْدُ اَللَّهِ بْنُ جَعْفَرٍ عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنِ اِبْنِ أَبِي نَجْرَانَ قَالَ سَمِعْتُ أَبَا اَلْحَسَنِ ع يَقُولُ مَنْ عَادَى شِيعَتَنَا فَقَدْ عَادَانَا وَ مَنْ وَالاَهُمْ فَقَدْ وَالاَنَا لِأَنَّهُمْ مِنَّا خُلِقُوا مِنْ طِينَتِنَا مَنْ أَحَبَّهُمْ فَهُوَ مِنَّا وَ مَنْ‌ أَبْغَضَهُمْ فَلَيْسَ مِنَّا شِيعَتُنَا يَنْظُرُونَ بِنُورِ اَللَّهِ وَ يَتَقَلَّبُونَ فِي رَحْمَةِ اَللَّهِ وَ يَفُوزُونَ بِكَرَامَةِ اَللَّهِ مَا مِنْ أَحَدٍ مِنْ شِيعَتِنَا يَمْرَضُ إِلاَّ مَرِضْنَا لِمَرَضِهِ وَ لاَ اِغْتَمَّ إِلاَّ اِغْتَمَمْنَا لِغَمِّهِ وَ لاَ يَفْرَحُ إِلاَّ فَرِحْنَا لِفَرَحِهِ وَ لاَ يَغِيبُ عَنَّا أَحَدٌ مِنْ شِيعَتِنَا أَيْنَ كَانَ فِي شَرْقِ اَلْأَرْضِ أَوْ غَرْبِهَا وَ مَنْ تَرَكَ مِنْ شِيعَتِنَا دَيْناً فَهُوَ عَلَيْنَا وَ مَنْ تَرَكَ مِنْهُمْ مَالاً فَهُوَ لِوَرَثَتِهِ شِيعَتُنَا اَلَّذِينَ يُقِيمُونَ اَلصَّلاََةَ وَ يُؤْتُونَ اَلزَّكََاةَ وَ يَحُجُّونَ اَلْبَيْتَ اَلْحَرَامَ وَ يَصُومُونَ‌ شَهْرَ رَمَضَانَ وَ يُوَالُونَ أَهْلَ اَلْبَيْتِ وَ يَتَبَرَّءُونَ مِنْ أَعْدَائِهِمْ‌[مِنْ أَعْدَائِنَا] أُولَئِكَ أَهْلُ اَلْإِيمَانِ وَ اَلتُّقَى وَ أَهْلُ اَلْوَرَعِ وَ اَلتَّقْوَى وَ مَنْ رَدَّ عَلَيْهِمْ فَقَدْ رَدَّ عَلَى اَللَّهِ وَ مَنْ طَعَنَ عَلَيْهِمْ فَقَدْ طَعَنَ عَلَى اَللَّهِ لِأَنَّهُمْ عِبَادُ اَللَّهِ حَقّاً وَ أَوْلِيَاؤُهُ صِدْقاً وَ اَللَّهِ إِنَّ أَحَدَهُمْ لَيَشْفَعُ فِي مِثْلِ رَبِيعَةَ وَ مُضَرَ فَيُشَفِّعُهُ اَللَّهُ تَعَالَى فِيهِمْ لِكَرَامَتِهِ عَلَى اَللَّهِ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ.

My father, Allah may have mercy upon him, narrated to us from Abdullah bin Ja’far from Ahmed bin Mohammed from Ibn Abi Nejran that he heard Abu al-Hasan (Imam ar-Ridha) saying: He who antagonizes our Shia is antagonizing us and whoever follows them is following us, because they are part of us. They were created from the same clay from which we were created. He who loves them is one of us, and whoever hates them is not with us. Our Shia see through the light of Allah, move about in the mercy of Allah, and will win the dignity of Allah. We feel the same pains that any of our Shia feels during ailment, we become grieved whenever any of our Shia becomes grieved, and we feel happy whenever any of our Shia feels happy. No one of our Shia can be out of our auspices, whether he was in the east or the west of the earth. The debt that is left by any of our Shia is in our responsibility while the estate is his heirs’. Our Shia are those who offer the prayers, defray the zakat, perform the hajj to the Holy House of Allah, fast during the month of Ramadan, declare their loyalty to the Prophet’s household, and declare their disavowal of the enemies of the Prophet’s household. Those are the people of faith, God-fearing, piety, and devoutness. He whoever rejects them is rejecting Allah, because they are the true servants and the genuine disciples of Allah. By Allah I swear, each individual of them will be granted (on the Day of Resurrection) the right to intercede for people as many as the individuals of the tribes of Rabeea and Madhar, out of Allah’s honor to them.
