Imam Jafar Sadiq (a.s) narrates: My father (Imam Muhammad Baqir (a.s)) entered the mosque and saw a group of our Shias. He approached them and said Salaam to them.
Then he said: I swear to Allah that I love your fragrance and your souls.
You are following the religion of Allah, and I swear to Allah that if you knew your status you would envy yourselves.
So help us with piety and diligence. And those of you who follow an Imam, follow him in his deeds.
You are Allah’s sign and you are His aids and supporters.
You are the foremost from the first. You are the foremost from the last. And you are the foremost to enter Paradise.
We have guaranteed Paradise for you by the command of Allah and His Messenger (s.a.w.a.) and it is as if I can see you in Paradise, competing with each other for stages.
Every man from amongst your believers is truthful and every woman from amongst your believers is Houri.
Ameerul Momineen (a.s.) told Qanbar I have glad tidings for you: Allah is angry with the entire nation except our Shia.
Everything has an honour and the Shia are the honour of religion.
Everything has a base and the Shia are the base of religion.
Everything has a master and the Shia are the masters of the gatherings.
Everything has a witness and the Shia are the witnesses on earth.
Those who are against you (the Shia) are the ones indicated in this verse Some faces will be downcast on that day, toiling, weary, entering the blazing fire. (Surah Ghaashiyyah (88):2-4).
Those of you who pray will be answered. And if you ask for one thing, you will receive a hundred.
Oh how wonderfully Allah treats you!
On the Day of Judgement our Shia will be brought out of their graves with bright and shining faces, feeling safe without fear or sadness.
