Shi`as look at their brethren from “Ahl al-Sunnah wal Jama`ah” with eyes of love and affection, desiring nothing for them except guidance and salvation. To them, the price of guidance is recorded by authentic traditions better than this life and everything in it.
Imam Ali’s (a.s) main concern was, after all, to guide people and to bring them back to the Book of Allah and the Sunnah of His Messenger. For this reason, his Shi`as nowadays are mostly concerned about refuting all the charges and lies piled up against them, and about introducing to their brethren from “Ahl al-Sunnah wal Jama’ah” the truth about Ahl al-Bayt and, hence, guide them to the Straight Path.
