Tuesday, July 28th, 2020, marks the martyrdom anniversary of Imam Muhammad al-Baqir (p), 7th of Dhu al-Hijjah, 1441 A.H.

Imam Muhammad al-Baqir (p) is reported to have said: “Indeed a believer is the one who when satisfied, his satisfaction does not lead him to sin and falsehood. And when he is angered his anger does not oust him from saying the truth, and when he gains power, his power does not make him cross the line to that which he has no right.”

[ِِAl-Kulaini, al-Kafi, vol. 2, p. 234.]

روي عن الإمام محمد الباقر (ع): إنَّما المؤمِنُ الَّذيْ إذَا رَضِيَ لَم يُدْخِلْهُ رِضَاهُ فيْ إثْمٍ وَلا بَاطلٍ وَإذا سَخَطَ لَم يُخْرِجْهُ سَخَطُهُ مِنْ قَولِ الحقِّ، وَالَّذِي إذا قَدَرَ لَم تُخْرِجْهُ قُدْرَتُهُ إلی التَّعَدِي إلی مَا لَيْسَ لَهُ بِحَق

 [الكليني، الكافي، ج ٢، ص ٢٣٤]
