Allah will not be ashamed to punish an Umma (nation) who has lived a religious life under the guardianship of an unjust Imam who has said the following would possess no authority form Allah, even though such people would be virtuous and pious in their deeds.
However, Allah will be ashamed to punish a people who lived a religious life under the guardianship of an Imam who is just in his dealings and possesses authority from Allah, even though they would be unjust in their dealings and have committed sins."
"The Imam is purified from sins, freed from defects, given knowledge exclusively, characterised with forbearance, the system of the religion, the stronghold of the believers, the punishment of the hypocrites, and the perdition of the disbelievers."
"We are only ladling from this world. He whose belief and religion are the same as his acquaintance will surely accompany that acquaintance everywhere. The life to come is surely the remaining abode."
"The limit of trusting in Allah is to fear none save Him."
