الإمامُ الصّادقُ (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ) : خَمسُ خِصالٍ مَن لم تَكُنْ فيهِ خَصْلَةٌ مِنها فلَيس فيهِ كَثيرُ مُسْتَمْتَعٍ ، أوَّلُها : الوَفاءُ ، والثّانيةُ : التَّدْبيرُ ، والثّالثةُ : الحَياءُ ، والرّابعةُ : حُسنُ الخُلقِ، والخامِسةُ ـ وهِي تَجْمَعُ هذهِ الخِصالَ ـ : الحُرِّيّةُ.

There are five attributes such that whoever does not even possess one of them does not have much to admire: loyalty, organisation, modesty, good temper, and the last which brings together all these attribute is freedom.

الإمامُ عليٌّ (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ) : أيُّها الناسُ ، إنّ آدمَ لَم يَلِدْ عَبداً ولا أمَةً ، وإنّ النّاسَ كلَّهُم أحْرارٌ.

O people! Indeed Adam did not beget a bondsman or bondswoman, so all people are free.

الإمامُ عليٌّ (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ) : لا تَكُونَنَّ عَبدَ غَيرِكَ وقَد جَعلَكَ اللّه‏ُ سُبْحانَه حُرّا.

Do not ever be a slave to others when Allah, glory be to Him, has made you free
Amir al-Mu'minin Imām ‘Alī ibn Abī Tālib (a.s.)
Nahj al-Balagha, Letter 31; Mizan ul Hikmah, page No. 339

الإمامُ الصّادقُ (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ) : إنَّ الحُرَّ حُرٌّ على جميعِ أحْوالِهِ : إنْ نابَتْهُ نائبَةٌ صَبرَ لَها ، وإنْ تَداكَّتْ علَيهِ المَصائبُ لَم تَكْسِرْهُ وإنْ اُسِرَ وقُهِرَ واسْتُبْدِلَ باليُسرِ عُسرا، كما كانَ يُوسُفُ الصِّدِّيقُ الأمينُ صلواتُ اللّه‏ِ علَيهِ : لَم يَضْرُرْ حُرِّيَّتَهُ أنِ اسْتُعبِدَ وقُهِرَ واُسِرَ.

The free is free in all his states: when he is inflicted by a calamity, he shows patience; when afflictions bear down on him, they do not break him, even though he be taken in captivity or defeated and his prosperity turns into poverty, just like the truthful trustworthy Prophet Joseph - blessings of Allah upon him - whose freedom was not affected even when he was enslaved, defeated and captivated.
Imām Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sādiq (a.s.)
al-Kafi, v. 2, p. 89, no. 6; Mizan ul Hikmah, page No. 339
