الإمام علي (عليه السَّلام):
حَقٌّ على الإمامِ أنْ يَحْكُمَ بماأنْزَلَ اللّهُ و أنْ يُؤدّيَ الأمانةَ، فإذا فَعَلَ فَحَقٌ علَى النّاسِ أنْ يَسْمَعوا لَهُ و أنْ يُطيعوا و أنْ يُجيبوا إذا دُعوا.
Imam Ali (as):
It is the duty of an Imam to rule in accordance with what Allah has revealed, and to he deliver what he has been entrusted with. If he does that, then it is the duty of the people to listen to him and to obey him and to hearken [to his call] when they are called.

الإمام علي (عليه السَّلام):
إنَّهُ لَيسَ علَى الإمامِ إلّا ما حُمِّلَ مِنْ أمرِ رَبِّهِ: الإبلاغُ في المَوعِظةِ، و الاجتهادُ في النَّصيحةِ، و الإحْياءُ للسُّنّةِ، و إقامةُ الحُدودِ على مَسْتَحِقِّيها، و إصدارُ السُّهْمانِ على أهْلِها.
Imam Ali (as):
Verily there is no obligation on the Imam except that which has been devolved on him by Allah, namely to convey exhortations, to strive to give good counsel, to keep the prophetic practice alive, to enforce penalties on those liable to them and to issue shares [of taxes and charity] to those who deserve them.

الإمام علي (عليه السَّلام):
إنَّ اللّهَ جَعَلَني إماما لِخَلْقِهِ، فَفَرَضَ عَلَيَّ التَّقْديرَ في نَفْسي و مَطْعَمي و مَشْرَبي و مَلْبَسي كَضُعَفاءِ النّاسِ، كَيْ يَقْتَديَ الفقيرُ بِفَقْري، و لا يُطْغِيَ الغَنِيَّ غِناهُ.
Imam Ali (as):
Certainly Allah has made me an Imam for His creation, so He has made it mandatory upon me to take into consideration myself, and adjust my food, my drink, and my clothing according to that of the weak people [of the community], so that the poor may follow me in my poverty and the wealth of the rich does not embolden them to transgress.

الإمام علي (عليه السَّلام):
إنّ أفضَلَ الناسِ عندَ اللّهِ مَن كانَ العَمَلُ بالحَقِّ أحَبَّ إلَيهِ وإن نَقَصَهُ و كَرَثَهُ مِن الباطِلِ و إن جَرَّ إلَيهِ فائدَةً و زادَهُ.
Imam Ali (as):
The most virtuous of people according to Allah is he to whom action in accordance with what is right is more beloved - even if it damages and worries him - than what is false, even if it gives him benefit and increases him.

الإمام علي (عليه السَّلام):
إنّ اللّهَ سبحانَهُ فَرَضَ في أموالِ الأغنياءِأقواتَ الفُقَراءِ، فما جاعَ فَقيرٌ إلّا بما مُتِّعَ بهِ غَنيٌّ، وَ اللهُ تَعَالَى سَائِلُهُمْ عَنْ ذلِكَ.
Imam Ali (as):
Allah, the Glorified, has fixed the livelihood of the poor in the wealth of the rich, so no poor person goes hungry except that it is because some rich person has denied (him his share), and Allah, the Sublime, will question them about it.

الإمام علي (عليه السَّلام):
إنّ شَرَّ النّاسِ عِنْدَ اللّهِ إمامٌ جائرٌ ضَلَّ و ضُلَّ بِهِ، فأماتَ سُنَّةً مأخُوذَةً و أحيا بِدْعةً مَتْروكَةً، و إنّي سَمِعْتُ رسولُ اللّهِ صلى الله عليه و آله يقولُ: يُؤتى يومَ القِيامَةِ بالإمامِ الجائرِ و لَيسَ مَعَهُ نَصيرٌ و لا عاذِرٌ، فيُلقى في نارِ جَهَنَّمَ، فَيَدُورُ فيها كما تَدورُ الرَّحى، ثُمَّ يُرْتَبَطُ في قَعْرِها.
Imam Ali (as):
Certainly the worst of people before Allah is the oppressive leader who himself has gone astray and misleads others. He destroys the prophetic practice and revives abandoned innovations. I have heard the Messenger of Allah (s) saying, On the Day of Resurrection the oppressive leader will be brought without any helper or anyone to advance excuses on his behalf, and then he will be thrown into the Fire of Hell, where he will turn as the hand-mill turns, then he will be confined to its depth.

الإمام جعفر الصادق (عليه السَّلام ):
لا يَقْبَلُ اللّهُ مِنَ العِبادِ الأعمالَ الصّالحةَ الّتي يَعْمَلونَها إذا تَوَلَّوا الإمامَ الجائرَ الّذي ليسَ مِنَ اللّهِ تعالى.
Imam Ja‘far al-Ṣadiq (as):
Allah will not accept the good deeds performed by the servants if they accept the custodianship of a tyrant leader who has not been appointed by Allah, most High.
