Samaad says that he told Imam Ja’far as-Sadiq (a.s.), that he was travelling to an area populated by polytheists and that he would have to stay there for some time. Some of the Momineen had told him that it was not advisable to travel there because if he were to die in that place he would be counted among the polytheists. Imam (a.s.) asked him if he would be able to propagate the Wilayat of Ahlul Bayt and invite people towards truth in that place? Samaad said, “Yes, master, there is total freedom of expression and religion. The people there, are receptive of truth.” Then Imam (a.s.) asked whether such a freedom was possible in an Islamic area. Samaad said, “No! On the contrary we have to practise extreme taqayya, and none of us can even dare to utter the names of one of you (Imams).” Imam (a.s.) told him, “If death overcomes you in such a place you would be counted as a monotheist community.” [i.e. he will be equal to a whole community of monotheists; like Hazrat Ibrahim (a.s.)]. The light of belief will emanate from your face.”
Imām Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sādiq (a.s.)
