Also why do sunni on hajj expose one of their shoulder while shia cover completely?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: Yes permission is not condition but according to Quran justice is condition which not easy as Quran described
Holy Quran 4:129
------------------
وَلَن تَسْتَطِيعُوا أَن تَعْدِلُوا بَيْنَ النِّسَاءِ وَلَوْ حَرَصْتُمْ ۖ فَلَا تَمِيلُوا كُلَّ الْمَيْلِ فَتَذَرُوهَا كَالْمُعَلَّقَةِ ۚ وَإِن تُصْلِحُوا وَتَتَّقُوا فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ كَانَ غَفُورًا رَّحِيمًا

And you will never be able to be equal [in feeling] between wives, even if you should strive [to do so]. So do not incline completely [toward one] and leave another hanging. And if you amend [your affairs] and fear Allah - then indeed, Allah is ever Forgiving and Merciful.
Our some of the Sunni brothers they expose one of their shoulder they are following their school of thoughts. Reason only they can provide

Question:I have read this incident mentioned many times on the internet. A few times it was associated with imam Jaffar saqiq(as).
Can you kindly verify if it's actually a saying of imam jaffar sadiq(as) or not?

The incident follows like:

Once there was a man who did Tohmat of our Sixth Imam Sadiq (a.s.). Imam Sadiq (a.s.) did no know about it until a few days later when one of his 'friends' came to him and said, "Oh Imam, I have heard terrible news. This person has been going around and saying this about you."
Imam Sadiq (a.s.) became angry at his 'friend'. He said, "Think of the person who did Tohmat towards me as if he shot an arrow at my body. I did not hear him so it is as if the arrow missed me; But by telling me this news, you have picked up the arrow from the ground and have hit me with it."


Non religiously it is also mentioned like:

“I heard this man say things about you behind your back.”
“He shot an arrow and it missed me, why have you picked it up to stab me with it?"

So can you kindly verify if this incident happened with imam jaffar saqiq(as)? If this saying is accurate and associated with imam? If yes kindly provide sources to back it up. I'd appreciate that.


Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: Yes it is right but it is narrated about Imam Zainul Abedien as in Noorul Absaar and Ehtejaj e Tabrasi Page 304
