He guides the people toward it praising Him and rewards them and compensates them for it — an increasing praise which does not vanish nor end. His might is exalted and His sovereignty is great. He is exalted, His names are sacred, and His blessings are continuous.
One cannot describe His characteristics and the imagination cannot fathom knowing Him. He is alone and He has no partners. He has elevated him above all of His creation from among the inhabitants of His heavens, His earths, His lands, and His oceans. He has elevated him to a position which no one can ascend to and no one can describe. He supported them with Imamate and made obeying them mandatory on everyone who follows His religion, believes in His Oneness, and testifies to the prophethood of His Messenger.
He has made their merits such that no one can describe them and no one can truly praise them. The most intelligent ones cannot truly understand their merits and no one can wrongfully desire their unique merits.
He has appointed them as the stars for the earth through whom people are guided and prevented from going astray and through whom confusion and spiritual blindness are kept away. And He has appointed them as the pillars of the earth who prevent it from destroying its inhabitants. Despite this, they expect to be guided to the right path, they believe that they are the followers of the correct path and that they fulfill that which has been made obligatory on them day and night.
And they expect the intercession of their Prophet. He will seek revenge against them at the time of reward and punishment on the Day of Judgment in front of the Lord of the lords. Verily He is Blessed and Exalted, far above oppressing the slaves.
He is sufficient for me in all affairs and He is the best One on whom one can rely. I did not include anything which has been narrated from anyone else, for verily that which has been narrated from the Ahlul Bayt. Each chapter is about a separate topic; all of the narrations in the chapter are related to the topic. This has been done to prevent confusing the reader.
The reader does not need to worry about how to find something specific that he may be looking for. The book was also organized so that the readers, those who study this book, and those who listen to the narrations in this book do not become weary looking for something specific.
Shia scholars and even the critics among the general population have testified that he was a knowledgeable, trustworthy, reliable, pious, diligent, accurate, and a noble scholar. We could not find any information about the exact year of his birth. He was born in the third century in the holy city of Qum. However, I became so intensely ill that I thought I would die as a result of that illness.
I gave him a sealed letter in which I had asked the Twelfth Imam about my age and whether I would die as a result of this illness. And some of them the keepers accompanied me to keep the people away from me. Then a young, handsome man whose skin was tanned took it and put it in its place. It stayed so steady that it was as if it had never been moved from its place.
I got up and started to follow him. I kept pushing people away to the right and left; people thought that I had lost my mind and moved out of my way. My eyes were fixed on him. Once he was far from the people, he began to walk slowly.
I was walking fast toward him but I still could not catch up to him. He wrote his will and strived to prepare for his death.
He was above every great virtue, including trustworthiness and insight, with which the scholars are often described. He was our teacher and he was a trustworthy and knowledgeable scholar. He was extremely truthful…. He was one of the most honourable teachers of Shaykh Al-Kulayni.
He wrote a letter to the Twelfth Imam. This title was used starting from the time of the Tenth Imam. And they expect the intercession of their Prophet on the Appointed Day of Judgment. Their Prophet will be their enemy on the Promised Day!
