Imam Sadiq (A.S.) said:

He whose eyes shed tears for our blood which has been shed, or for our rights which have been usurped, or for the humiliation meted out to us or to one of our Shiites, Allah shall accommodate him in paradise for a long time.

Narrator asked Imam Jaafar al'Sadiq (a.s.), ‘Can there be a time on earth without Imam?" The Imam said, "No, it can not be without Imam." Narrator asked, "Can there be two Imams at a time?" He said, "No, unless one is quite."

In the name of 'Allah.

Salaamun 'aleykum.

Akh, there is a hadith by Imam as-Saadiq ['a.s] where he explains the importance of all the features of our face. The hadith can be found from al-Khisaal by as-Sadooq [r.a]. Could you locate it and share it with us?

Thanks.
