Imam Amir-ul-Mu'mineen Ali (A.S.) said: Surely, it is the common people of the community who are the pillars of the religion, the power of the Muslims and the defence against the enemies. Your leaning should therefore be towards them and your inclination with them.

Enjoining Right and Forbidding Wrong

Bihar-ul-Anwar, vol. 100, p. 92

Imam Amir ul Mu'mineen Ali (A.S.) said: Ask others to do good; you will thus be among the good doers. Desist others from evil with your action as well as your speech, and stay away, to the best of your ability, from he who commits it. Struggle for Allah as is His due; and the reviling of a reviler should not deter you in matters of Allah. Leap into danger for the sake of right wherever it may be.
Nahjul Balagha, p. 392 letter 31

Imam Baqir (A.S.) said: Verily, enjoining what is right and forbidding what is wrong is the way of prophets and the method of good doers.

Al-Kafi, vol. 5, p. 56

Wasa'il-ush-Shi'ah, vol. 16, p. 135
