Imam Sadiq's (A.S.) Last words

As soon as Umme Hameeda the mother of Imam Musa Al-Kazim (A.S.) saw Abu Baseer, who had come to pay his condolences for the death of her husband Imam Sadiq (A.S.), she cried. Abu Baseer cried as well. When she was comforted, Umme Hameeda told him: "You were not present at the last moments of Imam Sadiq (A.S.) to see what happened."

AhlulBayt News Agency (ABNA): As soon as Umme Hameeda the mother of Imam Musa Al-Kazim (A.S.) saw Abu Baseer, who had come to pay his condolences for the death of her husband Imam Sadiq (A.S.), she cried. Abu Baseer cried as well. When she was comforted, Umme Hameeda told him: "You were not present at the last moments of Imam Sadiq (A.S.) to see what happened."

Abu Baseer asked: "What happened?" She said: "It was the last moments of Imam Sadiq's (A.S.) life. His eyes were closed. All of a sudden he opened his eyes, and said: "gather all the family members now." It was strange that Imam Sadiq (A.S.) had ordered as such in this last moment. So we put our efforts together, and gathered all relatives. All were ready to hear what Imam Sadiq (A.S.) had to say. When Imam Sadiq (A.S.) saw that every one was present, he told them:

"Verily, our intercession (Shafaat) does not reach the one who takes prayers lightly".
A man asked to the Imam Sadiq (A.S.), "By which sign a person is determined to be a believer?" Imam Sadiq (A.S.) replied,

"By Submission to Allah and satisfaction with the sad and happy events occurring to him."
