The Blessed Words of the Holy Imams:

” I am the encompassing heart of Allah (qalbu’llah). I am the speaking tongue of Allah (lihsanu’llah). I am the side of Allah (janbu’llah). I am the hand of Allah (yadu’llah).”

– Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib,

(Shaykh Saduq, Kitab al-Tawhid, pp. 164)

“Allah created us and formed us, and gave us the most perfect form. He made us His Eye over His Servants, and His Speaking Tongue, through which He speaks to His Servants. We are His Open Hand, extended with Mercy and Kindness to His Servants. We are His Face, through which He is reached, and the Gate which indicates upon Him. We are His Reservoir in the heavens and Earth. Through us, the trees grow and the fruits are ripened. Through us the rivers flow, and through us the succor of the skies comes down. We plant the grasses of the Earth. Through our ibadat, Allah is worshipped. If it were not for us, Allah would not be worshipped.”

Imam Jafar as-Sadiq,

(al-Kulayni, Usul al-Kafi, Vol. 1, pp. 144)
