Zaris al-Kanasi narrated that he went to see Imam Baqir (a.s) with several other people including Hamran ibn Aein. Hamran said: “O’ May I be your devoted servant! When we read the verse: “Whatever misfortune happens to you is because of the things your hands have wrought.” [The Holy Quran: Shura ] 42:30 does it mean that the misfortunes that happened to the Prophet (a.s) and Ameer al-Momineen (a.s) and the Holy Household were due to sins?” Imam Baqir (a.s) replied: “O’ Hamran! Their misfortunes were not due to sins. But their misfortunes were so extensive that they will get rewarded for them.”
