SHAFAQNA – A man told Imam Hussain (AS): I am one of your Shias. Imam (AS) replied: Fear God and do not claim a thing which God will say he is lying and committing a sin because our Shias are those whose hearts are clear of any deceit, fraud, treachery and trick. Therefore, do not claim that you are one of Shias but only say that you are one of our friends .
