Union of the believers

Question:

How are the infallible (a.) connected with the believers?

Answer:

Abu Basir reported that Imam As-Sadiq (a.) said: “The believer is the brother of the believer and they are like one body. If a suffering happens to him, this pain is also felt in the rest of the body. The spirit of the two is a single spirit and the spirit of the believer is more in connection with the Spirit of God than the rays of the sun are in connection with the sun.” Muhammad Baqir Al-Majlisi writes: “Authentic (Sahih) at the highest levels.” [Al-Kafi of Al-Kulaini, volume 2 page 166 Hadith 4; Mir’at-ul-Uqul of Al-Majlisi, volume 9 page 12]

الكليني، عن محمد بن يحيى، عن أحمد بن محمد بن عيسى، عن ابن محبوب، عن علي بن رئاب، عن أبي بصير، عن أبي عبد الله عليه السلام قال: المؤمن أخو المؤمن كالجسد الواحد إن اشتكى شيئا منه وجد ألم ذلك في سائر جسده، وأرواحهما من روح واحدة وإن روح المؤمن لأشد اتصالا بروح الله من اتصال شعاع الشمس بها. قال شيخ الإسلام المجلسي رضي الله عنه: في أعلى مراتب الصحة

Ja’far As-Sadiq (a.) reported that the Prophet Muhammad (s.) said: “When I was brought to my Lord during the night journey, He shared with me a revelation and inspiration behind the curtain, and He said to me: “O Muhammad, whoever humiliates a protégé of Mine has made war with Me, and whoever makes war against Me, I make war against him.” I said: “O Lord, who is that protégé of yours about whom You have informed me that You wage war against him who wages war against Me?” He said: “This is he from whom I received his covenant for you, and also for the guardian authorized by you, and for your descendants in regard to the guardianship.” Hadi An-Najafi writes: “The tradition is authentic according to its chain (Sahih).” [Al-Kafi of Al-Kulaini, volume 2 page 353 Hadith 10; Mawsu’at Ahadith Ahl Al-Bait of Hadi An-Najafi, volume 3 page 54 – 55 Hadith 7]

الكليني، عن علي بن إبراهيم، عن محمد بن عيسى، عن يونس، عن معاوية، عن أبي عبد الله عليه السلام قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم لقد أسرى ربي بي فأوحى إلي من وراء الحجاب ما أوحى وشافهني إلى أن قال لي: يا محمد من أذل لي وليا فقد أرصدني بالمحاربة ومن حاربني حاربته قلت: يا رب ومن وليك هذا فقد علمت أن من حاربك حاربته قال لي: ذاك من أخذت ميثاقه لك ولوصيك ولذريتكما بالولاية. قال الشيخ هادي النجفي: الرواية صحيحة الإسناد

Al-Husain Ibn Sa’id reported that the Imams Al-Baqir and As-Sadiq (a.) said: “The servant submits to God on the day of resurrection and therefore He will settle up with him quickly. Then God exposes him and says: “O believer, what kept you from visiting Me when I was sick?” The servant says: “You are my Lord and I am Your servant, You are the Living One whom neither pain nor suffering can touch.” Then the Lord says: “He that is hostile to a believer has already been hostile to Me.” Then the Great One says: “Do you know this one who is the son of that one?” The servant says: “Yes.” Then the Lord says: “What kept you from visiting him when he was sick? If you had visited him, you would have visited Me and then you would have found Me at your request. Then if you had asked Me for a need, I would have taken care of it and not kept it away from you.” [Jami’ Ahadith Ash-Shi’ah of Al-Burujirdi, Volume 3 Page 113 Hadith 43]

عن الحسين بن سعيد رضي الله عنه عن أبي جعفر وأبي عبد الله عليهما السلام قالا إذا كان يوم القيمة أدنى العبد المؤمن إلى الله عز وجل فيحاسبه حسابا يسيرا ثم يعاتبه فيقول يا مؤمن ما منعك ان تعودني حيث مرضت فيقول المؤمن أنت ربي وانا عبدك أنت الحي الذي لا يصيبك الم ولا نصب فيقول الرب عز وجل من عاد مؤمنا فقد عادني ثم يقول عز وجل هل تعرف فلان بن فلان فيقول نعم فيقول ما منعك ان تعوده حيث مرض اما لو عدته لعدتني ثم لوجدتني عند سؤلك ثم لو سئلتني حاجة لقضيتها لك ثم لم أردك عنها

Ibn Abi Najran reported that Imam Ar-Rida (a.) said: “Whoever is an enemy of our followers is our enemy and whoever is a follower of them is our follower, for they are created by us and from our clay. He who is a lover of our followers is from us, and he who has anger against our followers is not from us. Our followers see through the light of God and are received into the mercy of God and they are the successful ones through the glory of God. None of our followers are sick without us being sick and none of our followers are sad without us being sad and none of our followers are happy without us being happy. None of our followers is hidden from us, whether in the east or west of the earth. Whoever abandons the faith of our followers turns against us and whoever abandons possessions of them is their heir. Our followers are those who establish prayer, pay the alms, make their pilgrimage to the Holy House, fast in the month of Ramadan, turn to the people of the house, and dissociate themselves from their enemies. These are the people of faith and piety. These are the people of righteousness and the fear of God. He who rejects them rejects God, and he who attacks them attacks me, for they are the true servants of God and his true protectors. By God, one of them intercedes for the number of the sons of Rabi’ah and Mudar, and God grants them intercession on the basis of His glory of it.” [Sifat-ush-Shi’ah of As-Saduq, pages 3 – 4]

أبى رحمه الله قال حدثني عبد الله بن جعفر عن أحمد بن محمد عن ابن أبي نجران، قال سمعت أبا الحسن (الرضا) عليه الصلاة والسلام يقول: من عادى شيعتنا فقد عادانا ومن والاهم فقد والانا لأنهم منا خلقوا من طينتنا من أحبهم فهو منا ومن أبغضهم فليس منا، شيعتنا ينظرون بنور الله ويتقلبون في رحمه الله ويفوزون بكرامة الله ما من أحد شيعتنا يمرض إلا مرضنا لمرضه ولا اغتم إلا اغتممنا لغمه، ولا يفرح إلا فرحنا لفرحه ولا يغيب عنا أحد من شيعتنا أين كان في شرق الأرض أو غربها ومن ترك من شيعتنا دينا فهو علينا، ومن ترك منهم مالا فهو لورثته، شيعتنا الذين يقيمون الصلاة ويؤتون الزكاة ويحجون البيت الحرام، ويصومون شهر رمضان ويوالون أهل البيت ويتبرؤون من أعدائهم أولئك أهل الايمان والتقى، وأهل الورع والتقوى، ومن رد عليهم فقد رد على الله، ومن طعن عليهم فقد طعن على لأنهم عباد الله حقا وأولياؤه صدقا، والله ان أحدهم ليشفع في مثل ربيعة ومضر فيشفعه الله تعالى فيهم لكرامته الله عز وجل
