عَنْ اَبِي عَبْدِ اللهِ ع‏ فِي قَوْلِ اللهِ تَعَالَى‏ وَ اِنَّهُ لَذِكْرٌ لَكَ وَ لِقَوْمِكَ وَ سَوْفَ تُسْئَلُونَ‏ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللهِ ص وَ اَهْلُ‏ بَيْتِهِ‏ الْمَسْئُولُونَ‏ وَ هُمْ أُولُو الذِّكْرِ.

Imam al-Sadeq (peace be upon him) explained about the word of Allah the High, “Surely, it is a reminder for you and for your nation and soon you will be questioned” (Surah Zukhruf (43): Verse 44) that

“the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him and his holy progeny) and his family members (peace be upon him) are those about whom the nation will be questioned and they are the people of remembrance.”
