What is the main duty of Imams?

SHAFAQNA – Imam Ali (AS) said: I fear that you have sunk in ignorance and vanity, as in the past you were pulled in a direction which does not deserve to be admired. But if you correct your ways of life, you will find prosperity; my duty is but to try to reform (improve for better) your affairs (in life). If I wanted, I could speak about your unkindness. May Allah (SWT) forgive whatever happened in the past [1].
