The characteristics of true followers of Ahlul Bait (AS) according to infallible Imams

SHAFAQNA – It is narrated from Imam Kazim (AS) who said: If I wanted to separate my Shias (separate them into real Shias and others), they would not have anything except the name, Shia; and if I would have tested them, they would have gone out of the line of belief except my special companions. Verily, they have been sitting on their couches for periods and say we are the followers of Imam Ali (AS). But the Shia of Ali (AS) is the one whose saying and behaviour are the same [1].

A person came to Imam Hussain (AS) and said: I am one of your Shias. Imam (AS) replied: Fear God and do not claim a thing because God will tell you that you have said a lie and committed a sin in your claim. Our Shia is the one whose heart is free from impurity and treachery. Therefore, you can claim that you are one of our supporters (someone who like us) [2].
