Visits 302 categorization: Interpreting Qur’anic Verses

By referring to Shi`ite and Sunni narrative sources we can realize that Sadiqin are the Prophet’s household (a.s.):
1- Hakim Haskani has quoted from Abdullah ibn Umar in the interpretation of the mentioned verse with his own document that he said: “(اتقوا الله) Allah has ordered Muhammad’s companions to fear Him”, then He told them that: ﴿وَكُونُواْ مَعَ الصَّادِقِينَ﴾“be with the true ones”, that is, Muhammad and hishousehold”. [2]
2- Barid ibn Muawiyah Ijli says that: “I asked Imam Baqir (a.s.) about the statement of the Almighty and Glorious Allah “اتقوا الله و کونوا مع الصادقين”, he answered that: “ just we are meant by this verse”. [3]
3- Imam Ali (a.s.) said while debating that: “I swear you to Allah, do you know when Allah revealed the verse ﴿يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ اتَّقُواْ اللهَ وَكُونُواْ مَعَ الصَّادِقِينَ﴾ people asked the Prophet (s.a.w.) that: “is this verse refers to the public or not?” The Prophet (s.a.w.) answered that: “all of the believers have been ordered to fear Allah and to be with the true ones, and the true ones refers to Ali (a.s.) and the successors after me until the resurrection day”.
