الإمامُ الباقرُ (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ) : ثلاثٌ لم يَجعلِ اللّه‏ُ عزّ وجلّ لأحدٍ فيهنّ رُخْصةً: أداءُ الأمانةِ إلَى البَرِّ والفاجرِ ، والوفاءُ بالعَهدِ للبَرِّ والفاجرِ ، وبِرُّ الوالِدَينِ بَرَّينِ كانا أو فاجِرَينِ.

Muhammad Bin Qasim says that he mentioned to Abul Hasan, Imam Musa al-Kazim (a.s.) regarding the person who had entrusted someone with something valuable. “The trustee is an Arab and he is competent enough not to return the trust. Whereas the one who entrusts is a wretched Khariji (enemy of Ahlul Bayt)?” Imam (a.s.) said, “Tell him to return the trust; because it is a divine trust that he is entrusted with.” (Meaning that it is a trust, which is to be restored according to divine command).
Imām Mūsā ibn Ja‘far al-Kāżim (a.s.)
Greater Sins Vol 2, The Twenty-SecondGreater Sin ,page 109

Hazrat Imam Zainul Abedin (a.s.) advises his Shias: “You must return the trusts when required. By the One who has sent Muhammad (s.a.w.s.) as a messenger with trust, even if the killer of my father Husain (a.s.) had entrusted me with the sword with which he had slain him, I would have delivered it back to him.”
Imām `Alī ibn Husayn (a.s.)
Greater Sins Vol 2, The Twenty-SecondGreater Sin ,page 109

If a person makes good the trust in his possession, he unties a thousand knots that had tied him to Hell. So, do not be sluggish in delivering trusts. When one becomes a trustee, Iblees orders a hundred of his assistants to follow him so that they may deviate him and suggest him to defalcate. They continue to pursue him till he is doomed. Except the one who is saved by Allah (a.j.).
Imām Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sādiq (a.s.)

Both Shias as well as Sunnis agree that before his passing away the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) had said, “I leave among you two weighty things, the Book of Allah and my Progeny.” The Prophet’s words after this, according to history are, “On the Day of Qiyamat I will question you concerning them (as to how you have safeguarded them)” According to Tafseer Majmaul Bayan: The Quran and the Progeny have been referred to as “two weighty things” because to follow them is a very difficult task indeed. A true Muslim is one who is able to carry the weight of this responsibility. A Muslim must obey the Quranic orders and follow the Ahlul Bayt (a.s.). Alas! The followers of Muhammad (s.a.w.s.) did not safeguard the important trusts.
Holy Prophet Muhammad al Mustafā (s.a.w.w.)
Greater Sins Vol 2, The Twenty-SecondGreater Sin ,page 112

The enemies of Allah lie! I have corrected every custom and belief of the age of Jahilya (ignorance) but (the matter of) trust is as it was. Whether the trust belongs to a righteous person or an evil one, it has to be returned.
Holy Prophet Muhammad al Mustafā (s.a.w.w.)
Greater Sins Vol 2, The Twenty-SecondGreater Sin ,page 119; Tafseer Majmaul Bayan

One day a poor man came to the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) and told him of his poverty. The Prophet (s.a.w.s.) said, “Sit down! Allah is most Powerful.” Another beggar came and the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) told him to sit down too. Then a third destitute arrived and the Prophet (s.a.w.s.) told him also to sit down. After some time a person came and presented four saa (approximately 12 kilos) of wheat as Zakat to the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.). The Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) distributed one saa (3kilos) of wheat to each of the poor men. One saa of it remained. After the Maghrib and Isha prayers the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) announced that a saa of wheat is remaining with him. Any needy person can come and collect it from him; but no one came forward. The Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) was compelled to take this trust home. Ayesha says that, that night the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) was very restless. When she inquired the reason of his restlessness he replied, “I am fearful of the consequences in case I die today and this trust is not delivered to a deserving person.” It is also mentioned that when the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) was on his deathbed, he had an amount of six or seven dinars for the poor and the needy, remaining with him. He sent for the money and after counting it, said, “It is possible that Muhammad (s.a.w.s.) may reach the presence of his Lord while these dinars are still in his custody!” Then he (s.a.w.s.) summoned Amirul Momineen Hazrat Ali (a.s.), and gave him the dinars for the poor and the destitutes and then said, “Now I can rest in peace.”
Holy Prophet Muhammad al Mustafā (s.a.w.w.)
Greater Sins Vol 2, The Twenty-SecondGreater Sin ,page 122; Naaseekhut Tawarikh Vol.3, Pg544

People who sit together must be careful of safe-guarding the trust. It is not permitted for a believer to expose a secret of his believing brother.”
Holy Prophet Muhammad al Mustafā (s.a.w.w.)
Greater Sins Vol 2, The Twenty-SecondGreater Sin ,page 123; Behaarul Anwaar Vol.16

Three types of people will be under the shade of Divine mercy when there will be no other shade: One), the person who arranges the marriage of his believing brother. (Two), the person who procures a servant for his believing brother. (Three), the person who has maintained a secret of his believing brother

There are several rulers who have entrusted their treasury with me, but do not pay you your due one-fifth levy. Should I return their property to them?” Imam Sadiq (a.s) replied “I swear three times by the Lord of this Qibla that even if Ibn Muljam who has killed my grandfather (Imam Ali (a.s)) (and I wish to take revenge on him) entrusts his property with me, I shall return it to him.”

وسئل أبو عبد الله عن قول الله ( إنَّا عرضنا الأمانة) ما الّذي عرض عليهنّ، وما الذي حمل الإنسان، وما كان هذا؟ قال: فقال: عرض عليهّن الأمانة بين الناس وذلك حين خلق الخلق.

Imam Sadiq (a.s) was questioned about Allah's statement: “We did indeed offer the Trust to the Heavens and the Earth and the Mountains, but being afraid, they all refused to undertake it. However man undertook it- he was indeed unjust and foolish.” [The Holy Quran: Ahzab 33:72]. He was asked: “What was offered to them? What did man undertake?

قال الصادق : أحبّ العباد إلىَ الله رجلٌ صدوقٌ في حديثه، محافظٌ على صلواته، وما افترض الله عليه مع أداء الأمانة، ثمّ قال: مَن ائتمن على أمانةٍ فأدّاها فقد حلّ ألف عقدةً مِن عنقه مِن عُقَد النار، فبادروا بأداء الأمانة، فإنّ مَن اؤتُمِنَ على أمانةٍ وكّل به إبليس مائة شيطانٍ مِن مَرَدَةِ أعوانه ليُضلّوه ويوسوسوا إليه حتّى يُهلكوه إلاّ مَن عصم الله .

“The dearest person near Allah is the one who is honest in his speech; the one who guards (i.e. he performs) his prayers, and does what is incumbent upon him; and the one who returns what he is entrusted with.” He then added: “Whoever is entrusted with something and returns what he is entrusted with has indeed opened up one thousand knots of the Fire of Hell from around his own neck. Therefore compete with each other in being trustworthy, and know that Satan will appoint one hundred of his followers to tempt whoever is known to be trustworthy. They will tempt him to violate the trust, and get ruined. Only those protected by Allah the Almighty shall be saved.”
