Characteristics of the Shi'as

Hasan ibn Musa al-Washsha' al-Baghdadi: In Khorasan, I was in a session with Ali ibn Musa al-Reza (A.S.) where Zayd ibn Musa (the Imam's brother) was also present and was addressing the audience with pomposity and pride, saying: We are so and so. Talking to another group of people, Imam Reza (A.S.) heard him what he said, so he turned to him and said: O Zayd! Have the words uttered by Kufan grocers deluded you , when he said: Fatima was chaste and pure, and thus Allah safeguarded her progeny from the [Hell] Fire?! I swear by Allah this is true only for al-Hasan (A.S.), al-Husayn(A.S.) and the child born from her. But if Musa ibn Jafar (A.S.) obeys Allah, fasting in day time and spending nights in worshipping, and you disobey Allah and then be treated the same as him on the Resurrection Day, in this case you will be more dearer to the Exalted Allah than him, Ali ibn al-Husayn(A.S.) used to say: For the righteous among us there will be double reward and for the wrongdoer double chastisement.
Al-Hasan al-Washsha' says: Then the Imam (A.S.) faced me and said: O Hasan how do you read the ayah: "He said: O Noah! He is not of thy family, for his conduct is unrighteous" (11:46). I said some interpret it as:" For his conduct is unrighteous", and some others mean it as: "For he is [born] of unrighteous act". So those who read it as by the latter phrasing, they deny he was Noah's son. The Imam (A.S.) said: "Never it is so. He was Noah's son, but since he disobeyed Allah, the Almighty, He denied him of his father. Similarly, any one of us [the Ahl al-Bayt] who disobeys the Exalted Allah is not of us; and if anyone obeys Allah's commands he is of us.
