Imam Ridha (as) relating some proofs of Imamate
Imam Ridha (as) stated, “none is appropriate for the Imamate except him who argues with the communities through the proofs of Imamate.”
“What is the evidence for the Imamate?” a Jewish scholar asked.
He, peace be upon him, answered..
“He must be learned in the Torah, the Gospel, the Zabur (David’s Psalms), and the Holy Qur’an that he may be able to argue with the people of the Torah through their Torah, the people of the Bible through their Bible, and the people of the Qur’an through their Qur’an. He must be learned in all languages, that each language may be obvious to him, and that he may be able to debate with each people in their own language. In addition to these qualities, he must be Allah-fearing, clear from every uncleanness, pure from every defect, just, fair, wise, affectionate, merciful, forgiving, sympathetic, truthful, pitiful, kind, honest, and trustworthy.”
