الإمام جعفر الصادق (عليه السَّلام ):
لَمّا أمَرَ بِاجتِماعِ قَرابَتِهِ حَولَهُ وقد حَضَرَتهُ الوَفاةُ: إنَّ شَفاعَتَنا لَن تَنالَ مُستَخِفّا بِالصَّلاةِ.
Imam Ja‘far al-Ṣadiq (as):
when he asked for his relatives to be gathered around him as his death approached, said to them, 'Verily our intercession will not avail one who takes his prayer lightly.

الإمام جعفر الصادق (عليه السَّلام ):
قالَ إبليسُ: خَمسَةٌ ليسَ لي فيهِنَّ حِيلَةٌ وسائرُ الناسِ في قَبضَتي: مَنِ اعتَصَمَ بِاللّهِ عن نيّةٍ صادِقَةٍ واتَّكَلَ علَيهِ في جَميعِ امُورِهِ، ومَن كَثُرَ تَسبيحُهُ في لَيلِهِ ونَهارِهِ، ومَن رَضِيَ لأخِيهِ المؤمِنِ بما يَرضاهُ لنفسِهِ، ومَن لَم يَجزَعْ على المُصيبةِ حينَ تُصِيبُهُ، ومَن رَضِيَ بما قَسَمَ اللّهُ لَهُ ولَم يَهتَمَّ لِرِزقِهِ.
Imam Ja‘far al-Ṣadiq (as):
Iblis [Satan] said, 'There are five types of people against whom I have no stratagem, whilst I have the rest of people firmly in my grasp: he who clings fast to Allah with a true intention and relies solely on Him in all his affairs, he who is in constant and abundant glorification of Allah day and night, he who pleases for his brother in faith whatever he pleases for himself, he who bears an affliction with patience when it befalls him [and does not grieve impatiently], and he who is satisfied with whatever Allah has allotted to him and does not worry about his sustenance.
