What is obligatory from the rights of the Imam over his followers and the rights of the followers over the Imam


باب ما يجب من حق الإمام على الرعية و حق الرعية على الإمام‏ 

What is obligatory from the rights of the Imam over his followers and the rights of the followers over the Imam


محمد بن يحيى، عن محمد بن الحسين، عن محمد بن إسماعيل بن بزيع، عن منصور بن يونس، عن أبي حمزة قال: سألت أبا جعفر عليه السلام ما حق الامام على الناس؟ قال حقه عليهم أن يسمعوا له ويطيعوا: قلت: فما حقهم عليهم؟ قال: يقسم بينهم بالسوية ويعدل في الرعية، فإذا كان ذلك في الناس فلا يبالي من أخذ هكذا و هكذا وهكذا -يعني [ من ] بين يديه وخلفه وعن يمينه وعن شماله. 

Muhammad b. Yahya from Muhammad b. al-Husayn from Muhammad b. Isma`il b. Bazee` from Mansoor b. Yunus from Abu Hamza. 

He said: I asked Abu Ja`far عليه السلام: What is the right of the Imam upon the people? He said: His right upon them is that they listen to him and obey. I said: And what is their right upon them? He said: [The Imam] maintains equality and justice between the followers. And if that were to happen among the people, they will be indifferent to one who has taken like this, like this, or like this – meaning, from their front, from their right, and from above them. (al-Kafi, Volume 1, hadith 1054)
