قَالَ اَبُو عَبْدِ اللهِ ع‏ يَا اَبَا الصَّبَّاحِ نَحْنُ قَوْمٌ فَرَضَ اللهُ طَاعَتَنَا لَنَا الْاَنْفَالُ وَ لَنَا صَفْوُ الْمَالِ وَ نَحْنُ الرَّاسِخُونَ‏ فِي‏ الْعِلْمِ‏ وَ نَحْنُ‏ الْمَحْسُودُونَ‏ الَّذِينَ قَالَ اللهُ‏ اَمْ يَحْسُدُونَ النَّاسَ عَلى‏ ما آتاهُمُ اللهُ مِنْ فَضْلِهِ‏

Imam Abu Abdillah (al-Sadeq) (peace be upon him) said,

“O Aba al-Sabaah! We are the people whose obedience Allah has made obligatory; for us are the spoils of war and for us is the purification of wealth; we are those firmly entrenched in knowledge and we are those whom people envy about whom Allah says, ‘Or are they jealous ofthe people (viz. Imams a.s.) due to what Allah has given them of his grace?”
