Description: The Prophet (S) said, ‘A community who does not let the weak uphold his rights from the strong without obstacle will never be sanctified.’
رسولُ اللّٰهِِ (صَلَّيَ اللّٰهُ عَلَيهِ وَ آلِهِ): لن تُقَدَّسَ اُمّةٌ لايُؤخَذُ للضَّعيفِ فيها حَقُّهُ مِن القَوِيِّ غيرَ مُتَعتَعٍ.

Description: The Prophet (S) said, ‘There are two kinds of people from my community who if they are sound [of faith] my community will be sound, and if they are corrupt my community will become corrupt.’ The Prophet was asked, ‘And who are they O messenger of Allah?’ He replied, ‘The jurists and the leaders.’

Description: Imam Ali (a.s.) said, ‘If people were to fear and return to their Lord when calamities befall them and blessings are taken away from them, returning with truth in their intentions, and reverence in their hearts, He would return to them every runaway, and correct every corrupt person.’
Description: Imam al-Sadiq (a.s.) said, ‘Allah repels [corruption] from those of our followers who do not pray, with those of our followers who do pray, and if they were to all agree to not pray, they would be destroyed. And verily Allah repels [corruption] from those of our followers who do not pay the alms-tax with those of our followers who do pay the alms-tax. And this is the purport of Allah’s verse in the Qur’an: “Were it not for Allah's repelling the people by means of one another, the earth would surely have been corrupted.” [Qur’an 2:251]
