  Duties of Shias towards Imam-e-Zamana (a.t.f.s.) *   

To organize gatherings where the Fazael of Imam (a.t.f.s.) shall be discussed

The important duty is to organize programmes Where the Fazael of Imam (a.s.) are narrated. Where people will pray for Imam (a.s.). Even if one has to work very hard to organize such gatherings it is highly recommended because it is the propagation of the religion of Allah, it is the promotion of the word of Allah, it is a help in goodness in piety and it is a help to the signs of Allah and the friends of Allah. Tradition (hadith) clearly proves the importance of this duty of Imam Sadiq (a.s.).

"Meet each other because it enlivens your hearts and causes the remembrance of our affair (Wilayat), and our traditions will promote love amongst you. That if you take them you are successful and achieve salvation and if you leave them you shall be misguided and fall into perdition. Act on these traditions and I guarantee your salvation."

* To stand up with respect at the mention of Imam'(a.t.f.s) name

Whenever one utters the name or title of Imam (a.t.f.s.) one should stand up in respect, as had been the practice of the Twelver Shias. The textual proof can be cited from the report regarding Imam Sadiq (a.s.) as quoted in the book Najmus Saaqib. The report says that one day the name of Imam-e-Zamana (a.t.f.s.) was mentioned in gathering of Imam Sadiq (a.s.). When the name was uttered, Imam Sadiq (a.s.) stood up in respect. (Beharul Anwar Vol. 44 Pg. 278)

That standing up in respect is recommended (Mustahab) is proved from this above tradition, but there are some occasions when it is obligatory to do so. For example, when the name of Imam (a.t.f.s.) is uttered and all the people stand up. Anyone who continues to sit without any valid excuse has disrespected Imam (a.t.f.s.). And there is no doubt that disrespect towards Imam (a.t.f.s.) is haraam.
