And 'His command, when He desires a thing, is to say to it "Be", and it is' (XXXVI, 81). "The angels, despite their proximity to the throne of His liberality, the great extent of their burning love (walah) for Him, (their) glorification of the majesty of His might, and their proximity to the unseen of His kingdom (ghayb malakutih*), are capable of knowing only what He has taught them of His affair, although they are of the Sacred Kingdom in terms of rank.

It is in fact rather amazing that despite the extreme importance of Shi`ite Hadith* for the development of Shi`ite law and theology as well as many fields of the "intellectual sciences" (al-culum* al-caqliyyah), not to speak of its role in piety and the spiritual life, the sayings of the Imams of Shi`ism have not been rendered into English until now.

Finally I would like to express my sincere gratitude to Seyyed Hossein Nasr, who asked me to undertake this work many years ago and has guided me in every stage of it, although of course I remain completely responsible for any inaccuracies which may remain in the translations and notes.
