Ahmad ibn Sulaman al-Qummi al-Kufi said, "I heard Abu Abdillah Ja'far ibn Muhammad as. say, 'Even a Prophet among the Prophets may be tested with thirst till he dies thirsty; even a Prophet among the Prophets may be tested at a deserted place till he dies naked; even a Prophet among the Prophets may be tested with diseases and illness till he dies; even a Prophet among the Prophets may come to his people, stay with them toenjoin upon them the obedience of Allah swt., and call them to the absolute unity of Allah swt., and yet he may not be spared for a night nor given an opportunity to complete his speech nor even be given patient listening before he is killed. Certainly, Allah, Most High, tests his servants according to His swt. estimate of their station.'"
