  1. Salaam brother, you may explore the article below which explicitly answers your question, https://hubeali.com/articles/Rajja_Return_to-Life.pdf
  2. The Holy Prophet (saws) said, Complete repentance is repenting (one's) sins in the sense that when you commit a sin, you should ask for the Exalted God's forgiveness and never commit that sin again. Nahj al Fasahah; Tradition No. 407; Page No. 62 The Holy Prophet (saws) said, He who repents is like unto a sinless person, and he who asks God for forgiveness but insists in committing sins is like unto the one who ridicules Him, and he who annoys Muslims is sinful to the extent of palm groves. Nahj al Fasahah; Tradition No. 881; Page No. 125 Imam Amir-ul-Mu'mineen Ali (asws) said, Repentance stands on four pillars: remorse with the heart, asking for forgiveness with the tongue, work with the limbs, and resolve not to repeat [the offense]. Bihar al-Anwar, v. 78, p. 81, no. 74; Mizan ul Hikmah, page No. 787 Though, i feel the hadith above is sufficient to answer your question, however there are alot of hadith in our literature which says if we sincerely repent, Allah (عزّ وجلّ) will forgive all our sins Insha'Allah (عزّ وجلّ). (Extract) Rasool Allah (saws) turned towards the people and said, “If someone repents a year before his death, his repentance will be accepted. If a year is more, one who repents a month before his death, his repentance will be accepted. If a month is more, one who repents one Friday before his death, his repentance will be accepted. If one Friday is more, one who repents a day before his death, his repentance will be accepted. If a day is more, one who repents an hour before his death, his repentance will be accepted. If that is more, one who repents till his last breath (he pointed towards his neck), his repentance will be accepted.” Imam Ja'far Al-Saadiq (asws) said, Imam Ja'far Al-Saadiq (asws) narrates from his predecessors that the Holy Prophet (saws) said, "Allah gives abundant sustenance to whomsoever He desires. Similarly the mercy of Allah is spread far and wide for the sinners day and night waiting for the person to repent and be forgiven. The mercy of Allah waits at sunset for the people who committed sins during the day to repent and get themselves forgiven." Sawab al-A`amal, Page 232 Rasool Allah (saws) said, God's pleasure with a penitent person weighs over that of a thirsty man who arrives at water or a barren woman who begets a child or a loser who finds his lost one. Verily He will make the guardian angels, his limbs and all the points on the earth to forget the sins and faults of the one who repents and turns to God sincerely. Nahj al Fasahah; Tradition No. 803; Page No. 114&115 Imam Ameer-ul-Mu'mineen Ali (asws) said, Repentance purifies the hearts and washes away the sins. Ghurar al-Hikam, no. 1355; Mizan ul Hikmah, page No. 784 Rasool Allah (saws) said, There are four signs to the penitent person: honesty in his work for the sake of Allah, avoiding misdeeds, adhering to what is right, and eagerness for what is good Tuhaf al-`Uqoul, no. 20; Mizan ul Hikmah, page No. 785 Imam Ameer-ul-Mu'mineen Ali (asws) said, A man who is blessed with repentance will not be deprived of its acceptance, and a man who is blessed with seeking forgiveness will not be deprived of forgiveness Bihar al-Anwar, v. 69, p. 410, no. 124; Mizan ul Hikmah, page No. 785 Imam Muhammad Al Baaqir (asws) said, When the soul reaches this and pointed at the back of his throat there will not remain a chance to repent for the knowledgeable man, but there will remain a chance for the ignorant one al-Kafi, v.2, p.440 no. 3; Mizan ul Hikmah, page No. 786 Again, Imam Ali ibn Musa Al-Riza (asws) said, Imam Ali ibn Musa Al-Riza (asws), when he was asked about the reason for Allah's drowning the Pharaoh after he believed in Him and attested to His oneness, replied, 'Because he believed after he saw the wrath [of Allah], and belief at such a time is not accepted". Bihar al-Anwar, v. 6, p. 23, no. 25; Mizan ul Hikmah, page No. 786
  3. He is the One Who Revealed the Book unto you; from it are Decisive Verses - these are the Mother of the Book; and others are Allegorical. Then as for those in whose hearts there is perversity, so they are following what is allegorical from it, seeking the Fitna and seeking its (personal) interpretation. And none knows its interpretation except Allah, and those who are firmly rooted in the Knowledge. They are saying, ‘We believe in it. It is all from the Presence of our Lord’. And none (would) mention except those with the understanding [3:7] Let's see how "those who are firmly rooted in the knowledge" i.e the Holy Ahlulbayt (a) interpret this verse, And We will be Testing you with something from the fear and the hunger and scarcity of the wealth and the lives and the fruits; and give glad tidings to the patient ones [2:155] Al Ayyashi, from Al Sumaly who said, ‘I asked Abu Ja’far Imam Muhammad Al Baaqir (asws) about the Words of Allah (عزّ وجلّ): And We will be Testing you with something from the fear and the hunger [2:155]. He (Imam) said: ‘That is a particular hunger, and a general hunger. So as for at Syria, it would be general (widespread), and as for the particular (hunger) is would be at Al-Kufa, in a particular (area) and not be general but it would be in particular at Al-Kufa for the enemies of the Progeny (asws) of Muhammad (saws), so Allah (عزّ وجلّ) would Destroy them by the hunger. And as for the fear, so it would be general (widespread) at Syria, and that is the fear when Al-Qaim (Imam Mahdi) rises; and as for the hunger, it would be before the rising of Al-Qaim (Imam Mahdi (a)), and these are Allah's Words: And We will be Testing you with something from the fear and the hunger [2:155]’. Tafseer Al Ayyaashi 1: 68/125 Let's see another interpretation, Muhammad Bin Ibrahim Al No’mani – well known as Ibn Zaynab, from Muhammad Bin Hamaam, from Abdullah Bin Ja’far Al Humeyri, from Ahmad Bin Hilal, from Al Hassan Bin Mahboub, from Ali Bin Ra’ib, from Muhammad Bin Muslim, (It has been narrated) from Abu Abdullah Ja’far (a) Bin Muhammad (a) having said: ‘Surely before the rising of Al-Qaim (a) there are signs, a Trial from Allah (عزّ وجلّ) the Exalted to His servants, the Momineen’. I said, ‘And what are these?’ He (a) said: ‘So that is the Speech of Allah (عزّ وجلّ) Mighty and Majestic: And We will be Testing you with something from the fear and the hunger and scarcity of the wealth and the lives and the fruits; and give glad tidings to the patient ones [2:155] He (a) said: ‘And We will be Testing you – meaning the Momineen, with something from the fear – from the kings of the Clan of so and so at the end of their rule, and the hunger – with expensive prices (inflation), and scarcity of the wealth – spoiling of the businesses and the scarcity of the grace therein, and the lives – catastrophic deaths, and the fruits – scarcity of yield from what is cultivated and scarcity of the Blessings of the fruits, and give glad tidings to the patient ones [2:155] – during that, with the rising of Al-Qaim (a)’’. Then he (a) said: ‘O Muhammad! This is its interpretation that Allah (عزّ وجلّ) Mighty and Majestic is Speaking of but none know its interpretation except Allah, and those who are firmly rooted in the Knowledge’ [3:7]’’. الغيبة: 250 /5 ينابيع المودة: 421 https://hubeali.com/books/English-Books/TafseerHub-e-Ali/CH2_SuraAlBaqarah_Verses133-158_P6.pdf https://www.hubeali.com/tafseerhubeali/ More tafseer books, https://www.hubeali.com/tafseer-imam-hassan-askari-asws/ (Tafseer Imam Hasan Al Askari (a) http://hubeali.com/online-books/online-english-books/tafseer-abu-hamza-sumali (Tafseer Abu hamza al sumali) (tafseer by Imam Zain Ul Aabideen (a)) https://www.hubeali.com/online-books/online-english-books/tafseer-qummi/ (Tafseer Al Qummi)
  4. The narrator asked Imam Ja'far Al-Saadiq (a), “It is difficult for me to fast for three days every month. Is it enough that I give one dirham in charity for every fast?” Imam ((عليه السلام).) replied, “Giving a dirham in charity is better than fasting for a day.” My father said, ‘Sa’ad Bin Abdullah narrated to us, from Ahmad Bin Muhammad, from Muhammad Ibn Al Hassan Bin Alaan, from Muhammad Bin Abdullah, from Abdullah Bin Jundab, (It has been narrated) from one of the two truthful ones (asws) (5th or 6th Imam (asws), having said: ‘The one l who comes over to his brother, and he is Fasting a voluntary (Fast), so he should break it, and there would be double Recompense for him – one Recompense for his intention for his Fast, and one Recompense for making enter the cheerfulness unto him’. ILLAL AL SHARAIE – V 2 Ch 120 H 1 Ahmad Bin Muhammad narrated to us, from Sa’ad Bin Abdullah, from Muhammad Bin Al Husayn, from Salih Bin Uqba, from Jameel Bin Daraaj, Abu Abdullah (asws) has said: ‘The one who goes over to his brother and he is Fasting, so he should break his Fast with him, and not to let him know of his Fast. Thus, he would be from the ones upon who Allah Mighty and Majestic would Write for him the Fasts for a year’. ILLAL AL SHARAIE – V 2 Ch 120 H 3 Hadeeth related to common issues while fasting, http://hubeali.com/articles/Soam_Roza_Fast.pdf Optional fast, https://hubeali.com/articles/MustahabSoam_OptionalFast.pdf "Reward For Fasting In The Month of Rajab" The Holy Prophet (saws) says, “Know that Rajab is a great month of Allah (عزّ وجلّ). It is called Asam because there is no month so dear and excellent for Allah (عزّ وجلّ) except this. It was respected even during the time of ignorance. When Islam arrived, it too increased the greatness and excellence of this month. Know that Rajab is the month of Allah (عزّ وجلّ), Shaban is my month and Ramadan is the month of my Ummah. Know that if a faithful person fasts seeking reward from Allah (عزّ وجلّ) he has gained lots of pleasure of Allah (عزّ وجلّ). The fast of that person would end the anger of Allah (عزّ وجلّ) upon him; a door of Hell would be closed for him. The reward of this fast with pure intention is better than giving an earth filled with gold as charity. No object in this world can make his reward complete except good deeds. As soon as night falls, Allah (عزّ وجلّ) would fulfill his ten wishes. If he prays for worldly life his prayers would be accepted. One who prays for His friends, lovers and chosen people, Allah (عزّ وجلّ) would accept his prayers. One who observes two fasts in the month of Rajab nothing in the earth and heavens can imagine the greatness of that person. He would get the reward of a truthful person who has never lied in his whole life-time. He would appear on the Day of Judgment in the similar state. That person would do intercession of others along with other truthful people till they all enter Paradise and settle down with those truthful persons. One who fasts for three days in Rajab, Allah (عزّ وجلّ) would erect a barrier between him and Hell whose distance would be equal to travel of seventy years. Allah (عزّ وجلّ) would say at the time of Iftar, ‘You have right upon Me and My love for you has become obligatory. O angels! I hold you witness that I have forgiven his sins from start till the end’. One who fasts for four days in the month of Rajab, he will remain safe from calamities like the evils of Jinns, leprosy, leucoderma, mischief of Dajjal and the punishment of grave. He would get the reward of wise persons who repent. He would be handed over the scroll of deeds in his right hand and made to stand in the first row of worshippers. One who fasts for five days in the month of Rajab it is the duty of Allah (عزّ وجلّ) to please him on the Day of Judgment. His face would be shinning like the full moon when he is resurrected on the Day of Judgment. Rewards equal to the number of grains of sand would be written for him and he would be made to enter Paradise without any accounting. He would be given choice to ask whatever he wants from Allah (عزّ وجلّ). One who fasts for six days in the month of Rajab, his face would be brighter than sun when he is resurrected on the Day of Judgment. Apart from this, he would be given extra light, which would light up all those gathered on that day. He would be gathered along with protected people and would pass through the Sirat Bridge without any accounting. His sins as great as disobeying parents and breaking relations will be forgiven. One who fasts for seven days in the month of Rajab, Allah (عزّ وجلّ) would close all seven doors of Hell for him and prohibit the fire of Hell for his body. One who fasts for eight days in the month of Rajab, Allah (عزّ وجلّ) would open all eight doors of Paradise for him one by one and he would be given choice to enter Paradise from whichever door he wishes. One who fasts for nine days in Rajab would come out of his grave saying Laa ilaaha illallaah and would not see anything except Paradise. The light of his face would brighten the people gathered on that day and people would think of him as a prophet. The minimum reward given to him at that time is entrance to Paradise without any accounts. One who fasts for ten days in Rajab would be given two emerald wings decorated by illuminating pearls and rubies. He would enter Paradise flying over the Sirat Bridge with the help of these wings. He would be counted among the just and dear ones of Allah (عزّ وجلّ). He is like one who prayed for a hundred years with the pure intention of seeking reward from Allah (عزّ وجلّ). One who fasts for eleven days in Rajab, there would be no one greater in front of Allah (عزّ وجلّ) than him except one who has fasted more than him. One who fasts for twelve days in Rajab would be made to wear two dresses of brocade and silk. If one of those dresses is brought to this world it would illuminate the world from east to west and scent the world with fragrance better than musk. One who observes thirteen fasts in Rajab, a table would be spread under the shade of the Divine throne and a number of eatables would be laid on it for him. The span of this table would be seventy times the area of this earth. Trays made of brocade and rubies will be laid on it. Every tray would have seventy thousand types of eatables each having distinct aroma and color. That person would have food from this table while others would be involved in a great difficulty. One who fasts for fourteen days in Rajab, Allah (عزّ وجلّ) would grant him huge palaces made of pearls and rubies of such kind that eyes have l neither seen nor ears heard about nor can a human mind imagine them. One who fasts for fifteen days in Rajab would stand at the place of faithful people. Every angel, messenger and apostle passing by him would say, ‘Congratulations, for you are in peace, near to Allah (عزّ وجلّ), honest, fortunate and happy and would rest in gardens’. One who fasts for sixteen days in Rajab would be among those who are first to ride upon the vehicles of bright light. He would fly from Paradise to the door of Mercy in these vehicles. One who observes seventeen fasts in Rajab, seventy thousand lamps would be illuminated for him at the Sirat Bridge so that he enters Paradise passing the bridge in the light of these lamps. Angels would welcome him saying,‘ Well done’ and ‘Peace be upon you’. One who fasts for eighteen days in Rajab would be given a place on the thrones made of pearls and rubies in the Minaret of Ibrahim in Paradise. One who fasts for nineteen days in the month of Rajab, Almighty Allah would construct a palace of pearls for him facing the palaces of Adam (a) and Ibrahim (a). He would salute them and they too would salute him and respect his position. He would be given the reward of a thousand fasts for each fast. One who observes fast for twenty days in Rajab it is as if he has worshipped Allah for a thousand years. One who fasts for twenty-one days in Rajab, on the Day of Judgment he would get to intercede for people numbering the sinners of Rabi and Mudhir tribes. One who fasts for twenty-two days in Rajab a caller would give call from heaven, ‘O friend of Allah! (عزّ وجلّ) There are glad-tidings for you. There is great honor for you in Allah’s eyes. You are friend of prophets, truthful ones, martyrs and the virtuous upon whom Allah (عزّ وجلّ) has revealed His bounties and mercy. They are your best friends’. One who fasts for twenty-three days in Rajab a call would be given from heaven, ‘O slave of Allah! (عزّ وجلّ) You are fortunate. You have taken less pain and you are getting much more benefit. The veil is taken off from you. You are rewarded greatly by your Lord. You will be a neighbor of Khaleel (Prophet Ibrahim) in Darus Salaam. One who observes fast for twenty four days in Rajab the Angel of death would come to him in the form of a handsome youth wearing a green brocade dress mounted on a green horse of Paradise. He would be holding a golden cup decorated with a green silk more fragrant than musk filled with the pure wine of Paradise. He would make that person drink that wine while taking his soul away. The difficulties at death-bed would be eased for him and his soul would be wrapped in green silk. Such a sweet fragrance would come out if it that all the inhabitants of seven heavens would be scented with it. He would remain satisfied in his grave as well as when he would be resurrected until he reaches the cistern of The Holy Prophet (saws). One who fasts for twenty-five days in Rajab would be surrounded by seventy thousand angels, each holding an umbrella made of pearls and rubies when he is resurrected from the grave. They would have ornaments and excellent dresses. They would say, ‘O dear one of Allah! (عزّ وجلّ) Let us go to Him soon’. Then he would go to Paradise first along with the dear ones of Allah. Indeed it is a great success. One who fasts for twenty-six days in Rajab the Almighty Allah (عزّ وجلّ) would build a hundred palaces of pearls and rubies under the shade of His throne. There would be a tent made of red silk of Paradise in front of each palace. While people would be busy in accounting of their deeds, this person would rest over here peacefully. One who observes fast for twenty-seven days in Rajab, the Almighty Allah (عزّ وجلّ) will expand his grave to the distance covered in four hundred years and the whole area would be fragranced with Amber and Musk. One who fasts for twenty-eight days in Rajab Allah (عزّ وجلّ) would create a distance of nine barriers between him and the fire of Hell. The width of each barrier is equal to the distance covered in five hundred years between the earth and heaven. For a person who fasts for twenty-nine days in Rajab, Allah (عزّ وجلّ) would forgive him even if he would have robbed every man on the order of an unjust or even if she is a woman who has been unchaste seventy times. One who fasts for thirty days in the month of Rajab a caller would call out, ‘O slave of Allah! (عزّ وجلّ) Your past sins are forgiven. Your deeds can have a new beginning’. Allah would grant him all the gardens and every garden would have forty thousand cities. Every city would have forty palaces and every palace would have forty thousand houses and every house will have forty thousand dining tables and every dining table would have forty thousand dishes and every dish would have forty thousand types of cuisines each having a distinct color and aroma. Every house will have forty thousand golden thrones and the span of those thrones would be equal to two thousand hands. A virgin Hoorul Ein would be seated on each throne having three hundred thousand dazzling hair on their heads and each lock of hair would be held by one thousand slave-girls who will be scenting it with musk and amber so that the person who fasted during Rajab comes near her. All this is for the person who fasted for the whole month of Rajab.” Someone asked, “O Messenger of Allah! (saws) What should a person do who is not able to observe fast for the whole month due to weakness, menstruation or some other reason?” The Holy Prophet (saws) said, “They should give food to poor as charity. I swear by Him in Whose control is my life that they would get much more than what I have said if they give l charity daily. All the creatures of this earth and the heavens cannot even estimate one-tenth of the reward, which that person would get in Paradise.” (HubeAli translation:- someone asked Rasool Allah (saws), how about someone, due to weekness or illness or a lady out of impurity, is able to fast during the month of Rajab. Is there any substitute for him/her to reap these rewards? The Holy Prophet (saws) replied: ‘Yes, every day donate a bread as a ‘Saddaqa’ (charity) to a ‘Masqeen’ (deprived), I say it in the name of that Who Posses my soul, when he acts this way, he would achieve these rewards which I have describes above and even more than that. Indeed, if all inhabitants of the earth and heavens would collectively strive to level those rewards which he has secured in the Paradise then they would not succeed). Someone asked, “O Messenger of Allah! (saws) What should a person do who is not able to pay charity also?” The Holy Prophet (saws) said, “He should recite the following Tasbeeh of Allah (عزّ وجلّ) a hundred times daily for thirty days in the month of Rajab: ‘Sub-h’aanal ilaahil jaleeli sub-h’aana mallaa yambaghit tasbeeh’u illaa lahu sub-h’aanal a-a’zzil akrami sub h’aana mallabisal i’zza wahuwa lahu ahl’. Ref:- Sawab ul Amaal wa Aqab ul Amaal, pp. 62, haith no. 4 Bihar ul Anwar, vol. 94, pp.31 Wasailushia, vol. 10, pp. 483 Rawzatal Waizeen, vol. 2, pp.58 additional hadeeth, Imam Ja'far Al-Saadiq (عليه السلام) says, “Nuh (a) boarded his ark on the first of Rajab and ordered his companions to fast on that day. He said that Hell goes away to a distance of one year from one who fasts on this day. One who fasts for seven days all the seven doors of Hell would be closed for him. One who fasts for eight days all eight doors of Paradise would be opened for him. One who fasts for fifteen days would have his problems solved. One who fasts for more than this Allah (عزّ وجلّ), the Mighty and Sublime would grant him a greater reward. Imam Ja'far Al-Saadiq (عليه السلام) narrates from his predecessors that the Holy Prophet (saws) said, “A fasting person is considered to be in worship of Allah (عزّ وجلّ) even though he may be asleep on his bed; but if he does not backbites a Muslim.” Imam Ja'far Al-Saadiq (عليه السلام) narrates from his predecessors that The Holy Prophet (saws) said, “The sleep of a fasting person is like worship and his breath is like glorification of Allah (عزّ وجلّ).” Imam Ja'far Al-Saadiq (عليه السلام) says, “The sleep of a fasting person is worship, his silence like the glorification of Allah (عزّ وجلّ), his deeds are accepted and his wishes, fulfilled.” Imam Ja'far Al-Saadiq (عليه السلام) says, “The smell of the mouth (breath) of a fasting person is dearer to Allah (عزّ وجلّ) than the fragrance of musk.” Imam Musaa Al Kaazim (عليه السلام) says, “Take a nap in forenoon; for Allah (عزّ وجلّ) provides food and water to the fasting person in his sleep.” Imam Ja'far Al-Saadiq (عليه السلام) narrates that The Holy Prophet (saws) said, “If a person observing fast is present among those who are eating, the parts of his body glorify Allah (عزّ وجلّ) and angels send salutations and seek peace for that person and the salutations of angels is forgiveness.” Imam Ja'far Al-Saadiq (عليه السلام) says, “One who applies perfume at the start of the day while fasting, his intelligence won’t decrease.” Imam Muhammad Al Baaqir (عليه السلام) says, “If the last deed of a person in his life is a fast he would directly enter Paradise.” Imam Ja'far Al-Saadiq (a) says, “One who observes fast for a single day during summer and feels extremely thirsty, Allah, the Mighty and Sublime appoints a thousand angels to go to him, move their hands on his face and give him glad tidings. When he intends to end his fast, Allah (عزّ وجلّ) says, ‘How good your soul and your smell are! O angels! I hold you witness that I have forgiven this person’.” Imam Musaa Al Kaazim (عليه السلام) says, “Rajab is a river of Paradise whiter than milk and sweeter than honey. One who observes one fast in the month of Rajab, Allah, the Mighty and Sublime would satisfy him with this river.” Imam Musaa Al Kaazim (عليه السلام) says, “Rajab is a glorious month. Allah (عزّ وجلّ) doubles good deeds and wipes the sins in this month. One who observes one fast in Rajab, Hell would go away from him to a distance of a year and Paradise would be made obligatory on one who fasts for three days.” https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=http://asserattours.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/Sawabul-Aamaal.pdf&ved=2ahUKEwjk1reorOPuAhX763MBHQpWCP0QFjAAegQIARAB&usg=AOvVaw22xnTcHq2o8qtN24vIzda1 (Sawab Al A'amal wa iqaab Al A'amaal) https://www.hubeali.com/alkafivol4/ (Al Kafi vol.4, the book of fasts)

Here are few hadeeth from wasaail ash shi'a, (30368) 6 - وعنه عن فضالة عن العلاء عن محمد بن مسلم عن احدهما (عليهما السلام) قال: سألته عن عن آنية اهل الكتاب ؟ فقال: لا تأكلوا في آنيتهم، إذا كانوا ياكلون فيه الميتة والدم ولحم الخنزير.

  9. Salaam alaikum. I feel this is the hadith you're reffering to, Imam Muhammad Al Baaqir (عليه السلام) said Imam Muhammad Al Baaqir (عليه السلام) asked Jabir: "Does it suffice for one who claims to be our follower to just express his friendship with the members of the Holy Household? I swear by Allah that no one is our true follower unless he fears Allah and obeys Him. Our followers are known for their humbleness and frequent remembrance of Allah; fasting; praying; helping the orphans, the needy, the ones in debt and needy neighbors; reading the Quran; and talking properly with the people. They have always been trustworthy in their tribes." Jabir asked: "O' Grandson of the Prophet! I do not know anybody with these traits. Do not let the various sects affect you. Do you think that it suffices for one to say that he likes Imam Ali (عليه السلام) and he is his follower, but does not do anything to support his claim? Or he says that he likes the Prophet (saws), who is even better than Imam Ali (عليه السلام) but does not take his example and follow his deeds and act according to the Prophet's tradition. Just having love for the Prophet (saws) is of no use for him. Therefore fear Allah, and act in such a way as to attain what is near Allah, since there is no relation of kin between Allah and anyone. The one most loved by Allah is the one who is the most pious, and the noblest one is the one who fears Allah and obeys Him. I swear by Allah that it is not possible to get close to Allah unless by His obedience, and we do not hold the key to relief from the Fire of Hell, and no one has any authority over Allah. Whoever is obedient to Allah is our friend, and whoever disobeys Allah is our enemy. No one can attain our friendship unless by having nobility and piety." Mishkat ul-Anwar, Section 2 On Shiites: Their Signs, and Manners Chapter 1 On Shiite Characteristics, Hadees 290 I will post more relevant hadith. Imam Ja'far Al-Saadiq (عليه السلام) said Muhzam said that once he went to see Imam Ja'far Al-Saadiq (عليه السلام) and he talked about Shiites. The Imam (عليه السلام) said: "O' Muhzam! Our true follower is one whose voice will not pass through his ears and leave his body and reach someone else . He does not like our enemies, and is not the enemy of our friends. He does not associate with those who boast about us, does not bark like dogs, and is not greedy like crows. He does not ask anyone for anything even if he is starving to death. He is aloof. If our follower's houses are distant from each other, their words are not. If they are absent, no one will look for them; and if they are present, no one will pay any attention to them. If they propose marriage, no one will marry off their daughters to them. They leave this world with their desires still in their hearts. If they see a believer, they will respect him. If they see an infidel, they will abandon him. If a needy person comes to see them, they will have mercy upon him and help him by using their own property." Then he (عليه السلام) added: "O' Muhzam! My grandfather, the Prophet of Allah (saws) told Ali (عليه السلام): 'O' Ali! One who thinks that he likes me and does not like you is a liar. I am the city, and you are its gate. How can anyone enter a city without going through its gate?" Mishkat ul-Anwar, Section 2 On Shiites: Their Signs, and Manners Chapter 1 On Shiite Characteristics, Hadees 297 Imam Amir-ul-Momineen Ali (عليه السلام) said Amir al-Momineen Imam 'Ali ibn Abi Talib (عليه السلام) asked Nawf al-Bakali, 'Do you know who my Shi`aa are, Nawf?' to which he replied, 'By Allah, no.' Imam (عليه السلام) replied, 'My Shi`aa have parched lips and empty stomachs. They are those whose faces disclose asceticism, for they are ascetics by night, lions by day.' Bihar al-Anwar, v. 78, p. 28, no. 95; Mizan ul Hikmah, page No. 843 "Verily I am one of your Shi`aa", Imam Hasan ibn Ali (عليه السلام) said 'O Aabdallah, if you are truly obedient to us in our commands and prohibitions, then you are telling the truth. But if not, then do not add to your sins by falsely claiming such a dignified position that you are not worthy of. Do not say, 'I am one of your Shi`aa', but say rather, 'I am one of your adherents and one of your lovers and an enemy to your enemies.' You are [doing] good and aiming towards good Tanbih al-Khawatir, v. 2, p. 106; Mizan ul Hikmah, page No. 843 Imam Muhammmad Al Baaqir (عليه السلام) said Our Shi`aa are none other than those who are consciously wary of their duty to Allah and obey Him. They are known solely for their humbleness, their humility, their returning promptly whatever is entrusted in their care and their Abundant remembrance of Allah Tuhaf al-`Uqoul, p. 295; Mizan ul Hikmah, page No. 843 Imam Muhammad Al Baaqir (عليه السلام) said Our Shi`aa are of three types: one type dupe people in our name, one type are like glass which discloses everything that is inside it [that they, like glass, cannot keep hidden that which is placed in their trust, like secrets (ed.)], and one type are like red gold, which the more it is brandished in the fire, the purer it becomes. Bihar al-Anwar, v. 78, p. 186, no. 24; Mizan ul Hikmah, page No. 845 Imam Ja'far Al-Saadiq (عليه السلام) said Verily the Shi`aa of Ali were those who restrained their stomachs and their sexual desires, who struggled and fought intensely, who worked hard for their Creator, who hoped for His reward and feared His punishment. If you have seen such people, then they are the very Shi`aa of Ja'far. al-Kafi, v. 2, p. 233, no. 9; Mizan ul Hikmah, page No. 844 Imam Ja'far Al-Saadiq (عليه السلام) said Test our Shi`aa with regard to three things: the prayer times to see how well they observe them, their secrets to see how well they guard them from our enemies, and their wealth to see how they help out their fellow brothers with it Bihar al-Anwar, v. 83, p. 22, no. 40; Mizan ul Hikmah, page No. 844 Imam Ja'far Al-Saadiq (عليه السلام) said Verily our Shi`aa are those who possess four eyes: two in their head, as well as two in their heart. Actually, all people are such, except that Allah has opened their [the Shi`aa's] eyes, and blinded others' [as a result of their rejection of His guidance]. al-Kafi, v. 8, p. 215, no. 260; Mizan ul Hikmah, page No. 844 Imam Ja'far Al-Saadiq (عليه السلام) said One who claims to follow us with his tongue, but does the opposite to our actions and deeds is not from among our Shi`aa. Bihar al-Anwar, v. 68, p. 164, no. 13; Mizan ul Hikmah, page No. 844 Imam Ja'far Al-Saadiq (عليه السلام) said There is a group of people who claim that I am their Imam, but by Allah, I am no Imam of theirs may Allah curse them every time I conceal a secret, they disclose it. Every time I explain a matter, they retort, saying, 'Actually that means such and such.' I am only the Imam of those who obey me Bihar al-Anwar, v. 2, p. 80, no. 76; Mizan ul Hikmah, page No. 844 Imam Ja'far Al-Saadiq (عليه السلام) said The one who rejects four things is not from among our Shi`aa. They are: the Prophet's Ascension to the heavens, the questioning in the grave, the creation of Heaven and Hell, and intercession Bihar al-Anwar, v. 69, p. 9, no. 11; Mizan ul Hikmah, page No. 845 Imam Ja'far Al-Saadiq (عليه السلام) said Once asked a man about his tribe and brothers whom he had left back home, which the latter replied by praising them, attesting to their integrity and extolling them. Then Imam (عليه السلام) asked, 'Do the rich among them visit the poor when they are ill?' He replied, 'Not much.' 'Do the rich frequent the poor at all?' asked Imam. The man replied, 'Not much.' 'Then, do the rich maintain relations with the leaders from amongst the poor?' The man replied, 'Verily you are listing virtues that people amongst us rarely possess.' Imam said, 'Then how can these people claim to be Shi`aa?! al-Kafi, v. 2, p. 173, no. 10; Mizan ul Hikmah, page No. 845 Imam Moosa Al Kaazim (عليه السلام) said One who goes into retreat [in order to achieve spiritual upliftment] and who does not attain piety in his heart as a result is not from among our Shi`aa. Basa'ir al-Darajat, p. 247, no. 10; Mizan ul Hikmah, page No. 845 Imam Ja'far Al-Saadiq (عليه السلام) said The Shi`aa are of three types: one type who loves us and shows affection towards us, and he is one of us. The other type is he who adorns himself through us, and we will serve as an adornment for whoever adorns himself through us. And the third type seeks to cheat people and enrich himself in our name, and whoever does this will be impoverished. al-Khisal, p. 103, no. 61; Mizan ul Hikmah, page No. 846 Imam Muhammad Al Baaqir (عليه السلام) said O community of Shi`aa the Shi`aa of the household of Muhammad be like the middle saddle-cushion, on which the extremist who has slid forward falls back, and with which the follower who is yet to come catches up.' Upon hearing this, a man called Sa`ad from among the ansar asked him, 'May I be your ransom, who is an extremist?' He replied, 'They are a group of people who say such things about us that we do not say about ourselves. Neither are these people from among us, nor do we associate ourselves with them.' Then the man asked, 'Who is the follower that is yet to come?' He replied, 'The one who is searching for good and wants it, and who will eventually attain it and be rewarded for it. al-Kafi, v. 2, p. 75, no. 6; Mizan ul Hikmah, page No. 846 Imam Ja'far Al-Saadiq (عليه السلام) said O `Aabd al-A`ala, give my greetings of peace and the mercy of Allah to my Shi`aa, and tell them: 'Allah has mercy on the servant who incites love in the people towards himself and towards us [when attracting them towards Islam], by displaying to them that which they already like, and keeping from them that which they would reject. Bihar al-Anwar, v. 2, p. 77, no. 62; Mizan ul Hikmah, page No. 846 Imam Ja'far Al-Saadiq (عليه السلام) said Meysareh narrated that Imam Muhammmad Al Baaqir (عليه السلام) said: "O' Meysareh! Do you want me to tell you about our followers?" He said: "May I be your devoted servant! Yes." "They are like strong castles in faithful hearts. They have strong ideas. They do not hide the truth. They are not vain and ostentatious people. They are worshippers at nighttime and courageous like a lion during the daytime." Mishkat ul-Anwar, Section 2 On Shiites: Their Signs, and Manners Chapter 2 On Signs of the Shiites, Hadees 298 Imam Ja'far Al-Saadiq (عليه السلام) said: "Once a group of people started walking behind Ameer al-Momineen (عليه السلام). He asked them who they were. They said that they were his followers. He asked them why they did not have the signs of his followers. They asked him what the signs of the Shiites are. He said: "Paleness due to shortage of sleep, being slim due to fasting, dried lips due to extensive praying and humbleness." Mishkat ul-Anwar, Section 2 On Shiites: Their Signs, and Manners Chapter 1 On Shiite Characteristics, Hadees 282 It has been narrated that Muhammad ibn Nabik narrated on the authority of Abu Abdullah Ja'far ibn Muhammad ibn Muqbal al-Qumi on the authority of abul-Hassan Ali ibn Muhammad al-Za'edi al-Basri on the authority of al-Hassan ibn Sa'd on the authority of al-Haysam ibn Vaqed al-Jazri on the authority of Muhzam: "Muhzam said that once he went to see Imam Ja'far Al-Saadiq (عليه السلام) and he talked about Shiites. The Imam (عليه السلام) said: "O' Muhzam! Our true follower is one whose voice will not pass through his ears and leave his body and reach someone else . He does not like our enemies, and is not the enemy of our friends. He does not associate with those who boast about us, does not bark like dogs, and is not greedy like crows. He does not ask anyone for anything even if he is starving to death" then it is continued: Muhzam said: "May I be your devoted servant! Where can I find them?" Then Imam Sadiq ((عليه السلام)) said "Look for them on the Earth. They live a simple life. They move about from one town to another. They do not get in fights often. No one will visit them if they get ill. No one will follow their corpse in their funeral processions when they die. If an ignorant person addresses them, they will greet him. They are not restless when it is time for them to die. They help others with their property. If a needy person comes to see them, they will have mercy upon him and give him from what they own. Their hearts are not separate from each other even if their towns are." Then he said: "Allah's Prophet (saws) said: 'O' Ali! Whoever says that he thinks he likes me, but is your enemy is a liar." Mishkat ul-Anwar, Section 2 On Shiites: Their Signs, and Manners Chapter 1 On Shiite Characteristics, Hadees 297 Imam Muhammad Al Baaqir (عليه السلام) said "The true followers of Imam Ali (عليه السلام) are those who donate from their wealth to each other due to our friendship; become friends with each other due to our friendship; do not act oppressively if they get angry; do not waste things when they are pleased. They are blessings for their neighbors; and are a source of comfort and convenience for their associates." Mishkat ul-Anwar, Section 2 On Shiites: Their Signs, and Manners Chapter 1 On Shiite Characteristics, Hadees 296 Imam Ja'far Al-Saadiq (عليه السلام) said "Ali's follower is one who is careful about what he eats and guards his honor, is hard-working, works for his Creator and expects his rewards from Him, and fears His chastisement. When you see such people, they are my followers also." Mishkat ul-Anwar, Section 2 On Shiites: Their Signs, and Manners Chapter 1 On Shiite Characteristics, Hadees 283 Imam Ja'far Al-Saadiq (عليه السلام) said "Three acts perfect good deeds: rushing in performing them, hiding them, and not making a big deal out of them. Good deeds are pleasant if done fast. They are important if one does not make a big deal out of them. They are perfect if they are done in secret." Mishkat ul-Anwar, Section 2 On Shiites: Their Signs, and Manners Chapter 1 On Shiite Characteristics, Hadees 284 Imam Ja'far Al-Saadiq (عليه السلام) said "There are some servants of Allah on the Earth who struggle to fulfill the needs of other people. They will be saved on the Resurrection Day." Mishkat ul-Anwar, Section 2 On Shiites: Their Signs, and Manners Chapter 1 On Shiite Characteristics, Hadees 285 Imam Ja'far Al-Saadiq (عليه السلام) said "There are some servants of Allah who are eloquent, wise and knowledgeable but their hearts are filled with the fear of Allah and have stopped talking. They compete with each other in doing good deeds to approach Allah. They do not overestimate their deeds, and do not get pleased with the small amount of good deeds that they perform. Although they are intelligent and good people, they consider themselves to be wicked people." Mishkat ul-Anwar, Section 2 On Shiites: Their Signs, and Manners Chapter 1 On Shiite Characteristics, Hadees 287 Imam Ja'far Al-Saadiq (عليه السلام) said "Allah will humiliate anyone who humiliates a believer due to his being poor. He will remain in such a state until he repents." He also said: "On the Resurrection Day believers will be proud." Mishkat ul-Anwar, Section 2 On Shiites: Their Signs, and Manners Chapter 1 On Shiite Characteristics, Hadees 288 The Holy Prophet (saws) said It has been narrated that the Prophet of Allah (saws) entered the House of Allah accompanied by Fazl ibn Abbas and Usamat ibn Zayd the year he conquered Mecca. When he left that House, he held the door knob in his hands and said "Praise be to Allah who fulfilled His promise and acknowledged His servant, and conquered all the parties alone. Allah removed all the Arab's hatred and arrogance due to their lineage. You are all the children of Adam, and Adam was made of clay. The noblest one among you is the most pious one." Mishkat ul-Anwar, Section 2 On Shiites: Their Signs, and Manners Chapter 1 On Shiite Characteristics, Hadees 289 Imam Muhammad Al Baaqir a.ssaid "Lean on the mid-sized cushion so that those who have gone too far return and those who have been too slow reach you. By Allah, O' followers of the family of Muhammad (saws)! Beware that there are no relations of kin between Allah and us and we have no authority over Allah. One cannot get close to Allah except by obeying Him. Our friendship is useful for those who obey Allah, and is useless for those who are disobedient to Him. Amr said that the Imam (عليه السلام) then turned around, faced them and said: "Do not be fooled, and do not accuse." Amr asked: "What is meant by the mid-sized cushion?" The Imam (عليه السلام) said: "Have you not noticed that when a group of people enter a house in which there are a variety of cushions, they choose the mid-sized ones to lean on and rest?" Mishkat ul-Anwar, Section 2 On Shiites: Their Signs, and Manners Chapter 1 On Shiite Characteristics, Hadees 291 Imam Ja'far Al-Saadiq (عليه السلام) said "I advise you to be careful about what you say and guard your honor." Mishkat ul-Anwar, Section 2 On Shiites: Their Signs, and Manners Chapter 1 On Shiite Characteristics, Hadees 292 Imam Ja'far Al-Saadiq (عليه السلام) said: "Those who possess knowledge are the ones who are trustworthy. The pious people are the ones who strictly guard the religion, and the ones who act according to religious decrees are the masters of religion." Mishkat ul-Anwar, Section 2 On Shiites: Their Signs, and Manners Chapter 1 On Shiite Characteristics, Hadees 293 Imam Ja'far Al-Saadiq (عليه السلام) said Imam Ja'far Al-Saadiq (عليه السلام) quoted on the authority of Allah's Prophet (saws): "Whoever recognizes Allah and His Grandeur will shut his mouth up. He will neither talk nor eat. He will fast and stay up at night to pray." They asked him: "O' Prophet of Allah! (saws) May our parents be your devoted servants! Are they Allah's saints?" He said: "Allah's saints are quiet, and their silence is in remembrance of Allah. They look, and their looking is to learn a lesson. They talk, and their sayings are words of wisdom. They walk around, and their walking is a blessing for the people. If their life was not predestined for them, their souls would leave their bodies from the fear of divine chastisement and the eagerness for receiving divine rewards." Mishkat ul-Anwar, Section 2 On Shiites: Their Signs, and Manners Chapter 1 On Shiite Characteristics, Hadees 294 Imam Ali ibn Husayn (عليه السلام) said "Ameer al-Momineen (عليه السلام) said his morning prayer, sat in his place of prayer and waited until the sun started to rise. Then he faced the people and said: "I swear by Allah that I saw some people who stood up in prayer and prostrated in Allah's worship all night long, and pressed their knees and foreheads against the floor as if they heard the blazing Fire of Hell, and would shake like trees whenever they were reminded of Allah, as if they had been in ignorance." Imam Zayn al-Abedin (عليه السلام) continued: "Then Ameer al-Momineen (عليه السلام) stood up and was never seen to laugh again until he died." Mishkat ul-Anwar, Section 2 On Shiites: Their Signs, and Manners Chapter 1 On Shiite Characteristics, Hadees 295 Imam Muhammad Al Baaqir (عليه السلام) said "Imam Ali's (عليه السلام) followers are slim and their lips are dry due to frequent mentioning and praise of Allah in His remembrance." Mishkat ul-Anwar, Section 2 On Shiites: Their Signs, and Manners Chapter 2 On Signs of the Shiites, Hadees 299 Imam Ja'far Al-Saadiq (عليه السلام) said "Indeed the companions of Imam Ali (عليه السلام) were trustworthy and trusted by the tribes. The people were pleased with them. They used to stay up at night for worshipping, and were bright sources (of guidance) in the daytime." Mishkat ul-Anwar, Section 2 On Shiites: Their Signs, and Manners Chapter 2 On Signs of the Shiites, Hadees 300 Imam Ja'far Al-Saadiq (عليه السلام) said "How good it is for an eloquent person to be silent! There are instances of slip of the tongue in talking that might cause one's failure." Mishkat ul-Anwar, Section 2 On Shiites: Their Signs, and Manners Chapter 1 On Shiite Characteristics, Hadees 286 Imam Ja'far Al-Saadiq (عليه السلام) said "Three acts perfect good deeds: rushing in performing them, hiding them, and not making a big deal out of them. Good deeds are pleasant if done fast. They are important if one does not make a big deal out of them. They are perfect if they are done in secret." Mishkat ul-Anwar, Section 2 On Shiites: Their Signs, and Manners Chapter 1 On Shiite Characteristics, Hadees 284 Imam Ja'far Al-Saadiq (عليه السلام) said O Shi`aa community, be an adornment for us [amongst people] and not a disgrace to us. Say good words to people, guard your tongues and restrain yourselves from mindless chatter and offensive speech Amali al-Saduq, p. 327, no. 17; Mizan ul Hikmah, page No. 847 The Holy Prophet (saws) said On the Day of Resurrection, pulpits will be set up around the Throne for my Shi`aa and the Shi`aa of my household, who are sincere in their adherence to our guardianship.

Amali al-Tusi, p. 72, no. 104; Mizan ul Hikmah, page No. 847 Imam Amir-ul-Mu'mineen Ali (عليه السلام) said Imam Ali (عليه السلام) said, I complained to the Prophet (saws) about people's jealousy towards me, so he replied, 'O Ali, the first four people to enter Paradise will be myself, you, Hasan and Husayn. The rest of our progeny will be behind us, those who love us will be behind them, and our Shi`aa will be on either side of us. Kitab al-Irshad, v. 1, p. 43; Mizan ul Hikmah, page No. 842 Imam Muhammad Al Baaqir (عليه السلام) said Umm Salama, the wife of the Prophet (saws), was once asked about [the status of] Ali b.

  11. First we need to understand what worship is. And I have not Created the Jinn and the Humans except to be worshipping Me [51:56] Let's see the interpretation of this verse by "those who are firmly rooted in knowledge" i.e the Holy infallibles (asws)/the Holy Ahlulbayt (asws). He is the One Who Revealed the Book unto you; from it are Decisive Verses - these are the Mother of the Book; and others are Allegorical. Then as for those in whose hearts there is perversity, so they are following what is allegorical from it, seeking the Fitna and seeking its (personal) interpretation. And none knows its interpretation except Allah, and those who are firmly rooted in the Knowledge. They are saying, ‘We believe in it. It is all from the Presence of our Lord’. And none (would) mention except those with the understanding [3:7] And from him, from Muhammad Bin Musa Bin Al-Mutawakkal, from Ali Bin Al-Husayn Al-Asadabady, from Ahmad Bin Abu Abdullah Al-Barqy, from Al-Hassan Bin Ali Bin Fazal, from Sa’albat Al-Maymoun, from Jameel Bin Daraaj, ‘Abu Abdullah (asws), said, ‘I asked him (asws) about the Words of Allah (عزّ وجلّ) Mighty and Majestic [51:56] And I have not Created the Jinn and the Humans except that they should worship, he (asws) said: ‘Created them for the worship’. I said, ‘In particular, or generally?’ He (asws) said: ‘No, but, generally (for worship)’. علل الشرائع: 14 /12. Let us explore some more hadeeth. Imam Ja'far Al-Saadiq (asws) said Verily above every act of worship is an even better act of worship, and love for us, the household of the Prophet, is the best act of worship. al-Mahasin, v. 1, p. 247, no. 462; Mizan ul Hikmah, page No. 1014 A number of our companions, from Sahl Bin Ziyad, from Ibn Mahboub, from Abu Khalid Al Kufy, (It has been narrated) raising it to Abu Ja’far (asws) having said: ‘Rasool-Allah (saws) said: ‘The worship has seventy parts, the most superior of it being seeking the livelihood’. Al Kafi – V 5 – The Book of Subsistence Ch 5 H 6 Prophet Isa (a) asked a man, 'What are you doing?' The man replied, 'I am worshipping.' So he asked, 'Then who is it that supports you [financially]?' He replied, 'My brother', to which Prophet Jesus (عليه السلام) said, 'Your brother is a better worshipper than you.' Tanbih al-Khawatir, v. 1, p. 65; Mizan ul Hikmah, page No. 1013 Imam Muhammmad Al Taqi (asws) said Feeling Allah in every breath is more advantageous than exhausting your body in worshipping Him. al-'Allama al-Majlisi, Bihar al-anwar, vol.78, p.364. Muhammad Bin Yahya, l from Ahmad Bin Muhammad Bin Isa, from Moammar Bin Khalid who said, ‘I heard Abu Al-Hassan Al-Riza (asws) saying: ‘The worship is not the abundance of the Salāt (prayer) and the Soām (fast). But rather, the worship is the contemplation regarding the Command of Allah (عزّ وجلّ) Mighty and Majestic’. Al Kafi V 2 – The Book Of Belief and Disbelief CH 29 H 4 RasoolAllah (saws) said Engage yourself in acts of worship to the extent of your ability, for as you get exhausted, God gets exhausted too.Verily, the most beloved deed in the sight of God is the most durable, though in quantity little.

  12. A number of our companions, from Ahmad Bin Muhammad Bin Khalid, from his father, from Ibrahim Bin Muhammad Al Ashary, from Abu Yahya Al Hannat, from Abdullah Bin Abu Yafour who said, ‘I complained to Abu Abdullah (asws) of what I face from the pains, and I was sick. So he (asws) said to me: ‘O Abdullah! If the Momin was to know what is for him from the Recompense in the difficulties, he would desire to be cut (into pieces) with the scissors’. Al Kafi V 2 – The Book Of Belief and Disbelief CH 106 H 15 (Extract from tawheed al muffazal) As for one with lack of intellect, so he is attached with the status of the beasts, but he is ignorant of many things from what the beasts are guided to. Do you not think that these organs, systems, intellect and everything else required for his orientation (without which the perfection of his design is imperfect)are duly provided? Have all these been produced without balance, power and knowledge? Certainly not! They are necessarily the outcome of definite Design and Planning of the Almighty Designer”. I (the narrator) asked, “Master! How is it that some people are lacking in those organs and systems, and undergo the losses that you have described?” He (Imam) said: ‘That is for the discipline and the preaching for one to justify that with him, and for others by his reason, just as the disciplining by the king of the people for the teaching a lesson and the preaching, so he does not deny that upon them, but he is praised by the one sees them and the correction of their management. The people who are thus afflicted will be recompensed after death, provided they are grateful to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) and turn to Him, so munificently that all the troubles undergone by them due to lack of such organs, will appear trivial in comparison. So much so that if they had the choice after the death, they would choose to return to the affliction, in order to get an increase from the rewards.
  13. Muhammad Bin Al Hassan Bin Ahmad Ibn Al Waleed narrated to us, from Muhammad Bin Al Hassan Al Saffar, from Ahmad Bin Muhammad Bin Isa, from Al Hassan Bin Mahboub, from his father, from Sa’ad Bin Abdullah, from Ahmad Bin Muhammad Bin Isa, from Al Hassan Bin Mahboub, from Hisham Bin Salim, from Habeeb Al Sajastany who said, ‘I heard Abu Ja’far (عليه السلام) saying: ‘Allah (عزّ وجلّ) Mighty and Majestic, when He Extracted the offspring of Adam (عليه السلام) from his back in order to Take the Covenant against them, for Him for the Lordship, and with the Prophet-hood of every Prophet, the first of what was Taken against them for the Covenant was the Prophet-hood of Muhammad Ibn Abdullah (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) Then Allah (عزّ وجلّ) Majestic is His Majesty, Said to Adam: “Look, what do you see?” He (عليه السلام) (Imam Baqir) said: ‘So he (Prophet Adam) looked at his offspring, they were particles which had filled the sky. So Adam (عليه السلام) said: ‘O Lord! How numerous are my offspring, for what matter did You Create them? So what do You Intend by Taking the Covenant against them?’ Allah (عزّ وجلّ) Mighty and Majestic Said: “To worship Me, and not associating anything with Me, and believing in My Rasools and following them”. Adam (عليه السلام) said: ‘So what is the matter that I see some of the particles to be greater than the others, and some of them have a lot of light for them, and some of them have little light, and some of them have not light for them?’ Allah (عزّ وجلّ) Mighty and Majestic Said: “It is like that that I have Created them to Test them in every situation of them”. Adam (عليه السلام) said: ‘O Lord! Do You Permit me so that I speak to them?’ Allah (عزّ وجلّ) Mighty and Majestic Said: “Speak, for your spirit is from My Spirit, and your nature is different from what I am”. Adam (عليه السلام) said: ‘O Lord! If only You would have Created them upon one likeness, and one measurement, and one nature, and one constitution, and one colour, and one build, and same livelihood, some of them would not rebel against each other and there would not come be envy in between them, nor hatred, nor differing in a thing from the things?’ Allah (عزّ وجلّ) Majesticy is His Majesty, Said: “It is by My Sprit that you speak, and by your nature you have spoken of what you have no knowledge of. And I am Allah, the Creator, the All Knowing. It is by My Knolwedge that I have Caused difference to be in between their creation, and it is by My Desire that My Judgements get Established among them, and it is upon My Management and My Power that they have come to be. There is no change to My Creation. But rather, I Created the Jinn, and the human beings in order to worship Me, and I Created the Paradise for the one who worships Me, and obeys Me, from among them, and follows My Rasool, and I do not care. And I Created the Fire for the ones who disbelieve in Me, and disobey Me, and do not obey My Rasool, and I do not care. And I Created you and Created your offspring from other than there being a need for Me, to you or to them. But rather, I Created you and Created them for Testing you, and Testing them as which ones of you is the best in deeds in the house of the world, during your lifetimes before your deaths. And thus, I Created the world and the Hereafter, and the life, and the death, and the obedience, and the disobedience, and the Paradise, and the Fire. And thus I Wanted it to be in My Power, and My Management, and with My Knowledge, and the Establishment among them the difference between their images, and their bodies, and their colours, and their builds, and their livelihoods,and their obedience, and their disobedience. So I Made among them the happy and the miserable, and the seeing and the blind, and the short and the tall, and the beautiful and the reprehensible, and the knowledgeable and the ignorant, and the rich and the poor, and the obedient and the disobedient, and the healthy and the sick, and the ones with the (long short) ages and the one with no sovereign to him. So the able-bodies one looks at the one with the disability and he Praises Me over his own health, and the one with the disability looks at the one who is able-bodied, so he supplicates to Me and asks Me that I should Grant him health, and he observes patience upon My Afflictions, so I Reward him for being obedience to Me. And the rich one looks at the poor, so he Praises Me and thanks Me, and the poor one looks at the rich, so he supplicates to Me and asks Me. And the Believer looks at the disbeliever, so he Praises Me upon what I have Guided him. So it is due to that, that I Created them in order to Test them during the thick and thin, and regarding their well-being, and their Trials, and what I have Given them, and what I have Prevented them from. And I am Allah, the King, and Powerful. And it is for Me that I should Make it to come to pass whatever I Measure upon what I Manage, and it is for Me that I should change that whatever I so Desire to, to whatever I so Desire to. So I Bring forward from what I Delayed, and Delay what I had (Intended to) bring forward. And I am Allah! The Doer of whatsoever I Intend to. I Cannot be questioned about what I do, and I question My creatures about what they are doing”. Ref:- illal Al Sharaie – V 1 Ch 9 H 4
  14. Salaam dear brother. The fatwa and hadith both are present in front of you. Fatwa clear cut contradicts the hadith. Rest is upto you. But you should definitely avoid the redundant requirements. No hate towards anyone, i would love to accept what agha sistani says if i find a proof from the Holy Qur'an or from the Holy talking Qur'an i.e hadeeth.
