‘I heard Al-Sadiq Ja’far Bin Muhammad (as) saying: ‘The Believer is an Alawite because he is high (A’la) in the understanding; and the Believer is a Hashimite because he shatters (Hasham) the straying; and the Believer is a Qureishite because he accepts (Aqar) with the thing which has been taken from us; and the Believer is an Ajamy (non-Arab) because the doors of evil are opened up against him; and the Believer is an Arab because his Prophet (as) is an Arab, and his Revealed Book is in the clear Arabic language; and the Believer is Nabatean because he educes the knowledge; and the Believer is an Emigrant (Muhajir) because he flees from the evil deeds; and the Believer is a Helper (Ansar) because he helps Rasool-Allah (sawa) and the People of the Household of Rasool-Allah (as); and the Believer is a Holy warrior (Mujahid) because he struggles against the enemies of Allah (swt) in the government of the falsehood by the dissimulation, and in the government of the truth, by the sword’.
