Saying Ameen after a Supplication

وَ سَأَلْتُهُ عَنِ الرَّجُلِ يَدْعُو وَ حَوْلَهُ إِخْوَانُهُ يَجِبُ عَلَيْهِمْ أَنْ يُؤَمِّنُوا قَالَ إِنْ شَاءُوا فَعَلُوا وَ إِنْ شَاءُوا سَكَتُوا فَإِنْ‏ دَعَا بِحَقٍ‏ وَ قَالَ‏ لَهُمْ‏ أَمِّنُوا وَجَبَ عَلَيْهِمْ أَنْ يَفْعَلُوا

(In a lengthy Hadith) And I asked himasws (6th Imam-asws) about the man who supplicates and his brethren are around him, is it Obligatory upon them to say ‘Ameen’? Heasws said: ‘If they so desire to, they can do so, and they like to they remain silent. If his supplication is rightful but if he says to them, ‘Say Ameen’, it Obligates upon them that they do so’.[1] (an extract)
