O My master! Certainly wretched is he who opposes you and certainly happy is he who obeys you.

Imam Reza (a.s.) - The Leader

I (Dawud al-Raqqi) said to Abu Ibrahim (Musa), peace be on him:
“May I be your ransom, I have grown old. So take my hand and save me from hell-fire. Who is our leader (sahib) after you?”
“This is your leader after me,”
he (Imam Musa), peace be on him said and pointed to his son,
Abu al-Hasan (Imam Reza), peace be on him.

Say the Month of Ramazan

 Imam Ja'far as-Sadiq (alayhi salam) said:
"Say not, "This is Ramazan" and "Ramazan has departed" and "Ramazan has arrived" for surely, Ramazan is one of the names of Allah, The Mighty, the Glorious, who neither arrives nor departs. Surely, arrives and departs that, which is ephemeral, Instead say: "The month of Ramazan"”

 - Al-Kafi, vol. 4, pg. 70 -


Reciting one verse in the Month of Ramazan

Imam Ali ibn Musa al-Reza (alayhi salam) said:
"Someone who recites one verse from the Book of Allah, The Mighty, The Glorious, in the month of Ramazan, is like one who has recited the entire Holy Quran in the other months."
