9-4 أبي رضي الله عنه قال: حدثنا سعد بن عبد الله قال: حدثني أحمد بن الحسين بن سعيد قال: حدثني أحمد بن إبراهيم، وأحمد بن زكريا، عن محمد بن نعيم عن يزداد بن إبراهيم عمن حدثه من أصحابنا، عن أبي عبد الله عليه السلام قال: سمعته يقول: قال أمير المؤمنين عليه السلام: والله لقد أعطاني الله تبـارك وتعالـىتسعة أشياء لم يعطها أحدا قبلي خلا النبي صلى الله عليه وآله: لقد فتحت لي السبل، وعلمت الانساب، وأجرى لي السحاب، وعلمت المنايا والبلايا وفصل الخطاب، ولقد نظرت في الملكوت بإذن ربي فما غاب عني ما كان قبلي وما يأتي بعدي. وأن بولايتي أكمل الله لهذه الامة دينهم وأتم عليهم النعم ورضي إسلامهم إذ يقول يوم الولاية لمحمد صلى الله عليه وآله: يا محمد أخبرهم أني أكملت لهم اليوم دينهم ورضيت لهم الاسلام دينا وأتممت عليهم نعمتي كل ذلك من من الله علي فله الحمد


9-4 (The compiler of the book narrated) that his father - may God be pleased with him - narrated that Sa’ed ibn Abdullah quoted Ahmad ibn al-Hussein ibn Sa’id, on the authority of Ahmad ibn Ibrahim and Ahmad ibn Zakariya, on the authority of Muhammad ibn Na’eem, on the authority of Yazdad ibn Ibrahim, on the authority of some companions, on the authority of Aba Abdullah as-Sadiq (MGB) that the Commander of the Faithful Imam Ali (MGB) said, “I swear by God that the Blessed the SublimeGod has granted me nine things which He has not given to anyone other than the Prophet (MGB) as follows: All the roads are open for me; I know all the races; the clouds would flow for me; I know about the deaths and the calamities; and the Divine Decrees. Once I look at the heavens, I know about everything from the past to the future with the Permission of God; And that through my Mastery (of the religion) God has perfected the religion of this nation and perfected His Blessings upon them and wished their Islam for them. As on the Day of Mastery (Day of Qadir Khum) He said, ‘O Muhammad! Inform them that today I have perfected their religion and have wished for them Islam as their religion. I have completed my Blessings for them. All of these are honors from God bestowed upon those who praise Him.’”
