Ask an Alim

are all imams equal


Are all imams equal…or is Imam ali is more superior than Imam mahdi or Imam hussain?


Thank you for your question. The likeness of our understanding of the stations of the Infallibles (as) is like a person standing on a shore looking out at an unlimited sea. For us their stations are so great that it is not possible for us to differentiate between them. But in some of their statements it is possible to understand that there are differences in their stations, with Imam Ali (as) being the father of the Imams (as)

May you always be successful.
