خَمْسٌ مِنَ الإيْمَانِ: مَنْ لَمْ يَكُنْ فِيْهِ شَيْ‏ءُ مِنْهُنَّ فَلا اِيْمَانَ لَهُ: التَّسْلِيْمُ لأمْرِ اللَّهِ، وَالرِّضَا بِقَضَاءِ اللَّهِ، وَالتَّفْوِيْضُ إلَى اللَّهِ، وَالتَّوَكُّلُ عَلَى اللَّهِ، وَالصَّبْرُ عِنْدَ الصَّدَمْةِ الاُوْلَى

من كتاب المحاسن: عن أبي عبد الله قال: أتى رجلٌ إلى رسول الله فقال: يا رسول الله إنّي جئتُ أبايعك على الإسلام، فقال له رسول الله : على أنْ تقتل أباك، فقبض الرجل يده وانصرف، ثمّ عاد وقال: يا رسول الله إنّي جئتُ لأُبايعك على الإسلام، فقال له: على أن تقتل أباك، قال: نعم، فقال له رسول الله : إنّ المؤمن يرى يقينه في عمله، والكافر يرى إنكاره في عمله، فَوالّذي نفسي بيده ما عرفوا أمرهم فاعتبروا إنكار الكافرين والمنافقين بأعمالهم الخبيثة.

In Al-Mahasin it is narrated that Imam Sadiq (a.s) said: “A man went to the Prophet of Allah (a.s) and said that he had come to swear allegiance to Islam. Allah's Prophet (a.s) said: “So that you kill your father?” The man withdrew his hand and changed his mind. Later he returned and said he had come to swear allegiance to Islam. Allah's Prophet (a.s) said: “So that you kill your father?” The man said: “Yes.” The Prophet (a.s) said “A believer sees his faith in his actions and an unbeliever sees his disbelief in his actions. I swear by Him who has control over my life! They do not realize their own position and learn a lesson from the evil deeds of the hypocrites and the infidels which are due to the disbelief.”

Imam Sadiq (a.s) quoted the following on the authority of Ameer al-Momineen (a.s) : “There are certain signs by which religious people can be recognized. These are truthfulness, trustworthiness, fulfilling one's promise, observing the relations of kin, being kind with the weak ones, and the subordinates, minimal sexual intercourse with women, doing good deeds, being good-tempered, using knowledge, and doing whatever helps man approach Allah. Blessed be such people. They shall prosper, and have a good place to return to.”
Imām Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sādiq (a.s.)
Mishkat ul-Anwar, Section 1 on Faith, Islam & Related Issues, Chapter 10 on on Faith and Islam, Hadees 160

قال أبو عبد الله أيضا: كان أمير المؤمنين يقول: لا يطعم عبدٌ طعم الإيمان حتّى يعلم أنّ ما أصابه لم يكن ليخطئه، وأنّ ما أخطأه لم يكن ليصيبه، فانّ الضارّ النافع هو الله.

Imam Sadiq (a.s) reported the following on the authority of Ameer al-Momineen (a.s) : “No one shall experience real faith unless he realizes that he shall suffer from whatever he is to suffer, and he shall be safe from whatever he should be saved from. Indeed it is Allah who brings forth loss or gain.”

عن الصّادق عن آبائه عن أمير المؤمنين: قال: قال رسول الله : مَن أسبغ وضوءه، وأحسن صلاته، وأدّى زكاة ماله، وكفّ غضبه، وسجن لسانه، واستغفر لذنبه، وأدّىَ النصيحة لأهل بيته فقد استكمل حقائق الإيمان، وأبواب الجنّة مفتّحة له.

عن أبي عبد الله قال: لقي رسول الله يوماً حارثة بن مالك بن النعمان الأنصاري فقال له: كيف أصبحتَ يا حارثة؟ قال: أصبحتُ يا رسول الله مؤمنا حقّا، فقال: إنّ لكلّ إيمانٍ حقيقةٌ، فما حقيقة إيمانك؟ فقال: عزفت نفسي عن الدنيا فأسهرتُ ليلي واظمأتُ نهاري فكأنّي نظرتُ إلى عرش ربّي قد قرب الحساب، فكأنّي بأهل الجنّة فيها يتزاورون وأهل النار يعذّبون، فقال رسول الله : أنتَ مؤمنٌ؛ نوّر الله الإيمان في قلبك فاثبِت ثبَّتَكَ الله، فقال: يا رسول الله! ما أنا على نفسي من شيءٍ أخوف منّي عليها من بَصَري، فدعا له رسول الله فذهب بصره.

“One day when the Prophet of Allah (a.s) saw Harith ibn Malik ibn al-Naemane al-Ansarie, he asked him: “O' Harith! How did you spent the night until the morning?” Harith replied: “O' Prophet of Allah! I spent the night until the morning as a true believer.” The Prophet (a.s) said:

Imam Sadiq (a.s) said the following regarding Allah's statement: “And most of them believe not in Allah without associating (others as partners) with Him: [The Holy Quran: Yusuf 12:106] They follow Satan in the same way that they attribute partners to Allah.”

عن الباقر قال: قال رسول الله : ألا أنبئكم بالمؤمن؟ المؤمن مَن ائتمنه المؤمنون على أموالهم أنفسهم، ألا أنبئكم بالمسلم؟ المسلم مَن سَلِم المسلمون مِن يده ولسانه، المهاجر مَن هجر السيّئات وترك ما حرّم الله عليه.

“Do you want me to tell you who a believer is? A believer is one with whom the believers trust their lives and property. Do you want me to tell you who a Muslim is? A Muslim is one from whose hands and tongue other Muslims are safe. And an emigrant is one who abstains from doing evil deeds and does not do whatever Allah has forbidden him to do.”

عن الرضا عن أبيه عن آبائه: قال: قال رسول الله : الإيمان بضعٌ وسبعون باباً، أكبرها شهادة أنْ لا إله إلاّ الله، وأدناها إماطة الأذى عن الطريق.

Imam Reza (a.s) quoted the Prophet of Allah (a.s) on the authority of his father (a.s) on the authority of his grandfather (a.s): : “Faith has seventy gates and a few more. The biggest one is witnessing that there is only one Allah, and there are no partners for Him, and the smallest one is cleaning up the walkways.”

كتاب المحاسن: عن معلّى بن خُنيس قال: قال أبو عبد الله : يا معلّى، أُكتُم أمرنا ولم تُذِعهُ، فإنّه مَن كتم أمرنا ولم يذعه أعزّه الله في الدنيا وجعله نورا بين عينيه في الآخرة يقوده إلى الجنّة. يا معلّى! من أذاع أمرنا ولم يكتمه أذلّه الله في الدنيا والآخرة ونزع النور من بين عينيه في الآخرة، وجعله ظلمةً تقوده إلىَ النار. يا معلّى، إنّ التقيّة ديني ودين آبائي، ولا دين لمن لا تقيّة له، إنّ الله يحبّ أنْ يُعبَدَ في السرّ كما يحبّ أنْ يُعبَدَ في العلانيّة. يا معلّى، إنّ المذيع لأمرنا كالجاحد له.

In Al-Mahasin it is narrated that Muala ibn Khunays narrated that Imam Sadiq (a.s) told him “O' Muala! Conceal our secrets, and do not divulge them since Allah will honor those who conceal our secrets in this world, and will provide him with a guiding light directing him to Heaven in the Hereafter. O' Muala! Allah will abase whoever divulges our secrets in this world, and will darken his path in the Hereafter leading him to Hell. O' Muala! Concealing faith is a part of my religion, and the religion of my forefathers. Whoever does not practice it, is not religious. Allah likes to be worshipped in secret the same way that He likes to be worshipped publicly. O' Muala! Whoever divulges our secrets is like one who denies them.”
Imām Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sādiq (a.s.)

Bashir narrated that Imam Sadiq (a.s) reported on the authority of his father (a.s): “I swear by Allah that there is nothing on the Earth dearer to me than concealing faith, my darling. Allah will raise the status of whomever practices concealing faith, and Allah will abase whoever does not. O' my darling son! The people are in peace. If the decree to the holy Jihad is issued by the Imam (a.s), then the followers do not have to conceal their faith anymore.”
Imām Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sādiq (a.s.)
Mishkat ul-Anwar, Section 1 on Faith, Islam & Related Issues, Chapter 11 on Concealing Faith, Hadees 174

Regarding Allah's statement: “Twice will they be given their reward, for that they have persevered, that they avert evil with good” [The Holy Quran: Qasas 28:54], Imam Sadiq (a.s) commented: “This means by their perseverance in concealing faith they will receive a double reward. And here good means concealing faith and evil means divulging our secrets.”

Abi Basir said that he once asked Imam Sadiq (a.s) “Why do you not inform us about secrets in the same way that (Imam) Ali (a.s) informed his companions?” Imam Sadiq (a.s) replied: “By Allah you are right. But can you tell me of even one case when I told you a tradition about something and you kept it as a secret?” Then Abi Basir said: “By Allah I cannot even remember one tradition which I kept a secret.”

Abi Basir said that once he asked Imam Sadiq (a.s) about traditions. Then Imam Sadiq (a.s) asked him if he had kept any of the ones he had been told a secret so that he could be told new ones. When Imam Sadiq (a.s) noticed that Abi Basir was upset he said: : “Do not worry about the ones that you told your friends. Divulging traditions means telling them to people other than your companions.”

عن ابن مسكان قال: قال أبو عبد الله : إني لأحسِبُك إذا شُتِمَ عليٌّ بين يديك إن تستطع أن تأكل أنف شاتِمِهِ لَفَعَلتَ، فقلتُ: إي والله جُعِلتُ فداك إنّي لهكذا وأهل بيتي، قال: فلا تفعل، فوالله لربّما سمعت من شتم عليّاً وما بيني وبينه إلاّ أُسطوانةٌ.فأستتر بها، فإذا فرغتُ من صلاتي أمرّ به فأُسلّم عليه وأُصافحه.

Ibn Miskan said that Imam Sadiq (a.s) told him “I think if someone insults Imam Ali (a.s) in front of you, you will chop off his nose if you can.” Ibn Miskan replied: “May I be your devoted servant! Yes, my family and I are all this way.” Imam Sadiq (a.s) said: “Do not do this. I swear by Allah that there were many occasions when I heard someone insult Imam Ali (a.s) while there was only a small pillar between the man who insulted Imam Ali (a.s) and me. I hid behind that pillar and when I finished my prayer I walked by, greeted him and shook hands with him.”

Imam Sadiq (a.s) said the following regarding Allah's statement “And slew the Prophets in defiance of right” [The Holy Quran: Al-i-Imran 3:112], “I swear by Allah that they did not kill them with their swords, but caused them to be killed by divulging their secrets.”

عن أبي بصير عن أبي عبد الله : التّقية من دين الله، قلت: من دين الله؟ قال: إي والله من دين الله، ولقد قال يوسف: أَيّتُهَا العِيرُ إنَّكُمْ لَسارِقوُنَ والله ما كانوا سرقوا شيئاً، ولقد قال إبراهيم: إِنّي سَقِيمٌ والله ما كان سقيماً.

Abi Basir narrated that Imam Sadiq (a.s) said: “Concealing faith is a part of Allah's religion.” He was asked: “Is it a part of Allah's religion?” He replied: “Yes, I swear by Allah that when Joseph said: “Behold! Ye are thieves, without doubt!” [The Holy Quran: Yusuf 12:70], they had not really stolen anything. And also when Abraham said he was ill and would not attend the party, “I am indeed sick (at heart)!” [The Holy Quran: Saffat 37:89], by Allah he was not ill.” Translators' note: Yusuf had put the Kings drinking-cup in his brother's saddlebag, as the only possible means of keeping his brother. See verses 55 through the end of chapter Yusuf of the Holy Quran for more details. Also in verses 83 through 96 of the chapter Saffat of the Holy Quran we read that Abraham said he feels sick, and they left him. He then turned to their gods, and attacked them in order to fight idol-worshipping
