According to Tafsir Mizan by Allamah Tabatabai, in verse 69 of Surat al Nisaa: ومن يطع الله والرسول فأولئك مع الذين أنعم الله عليهم من النبيين والصديقين والشهداء والصالحين وحسن أولئك رفيقا "
the word Sidiqoon  refers to those who are truthful in their words, they do what they say and they say what they do.  
According to Tafsir al Burhan, Imam Ali ibn al Husain says about this verse that "this refers to us and our Shia (followers)". In another narration by Rasulullah (SA), he says that that Sidiqoon refers to three people: 1) Habib al Najar who is Momen Aal Yaseen 2) Hizqeel who is Momen Aal Fir'oon and 3) Ali ibn Abi Taleb (AS).
