13-5 حدثنا أبي رضي الله عنه قال: حدثنا عبد الله بن الحسن المؤدب قال: حدثنا أحمد بن علي الاصبهاني، عن إبراهيم بن محمد الثقفي قال: حدثنا جعفر بن الحسن بن عبيدالله بن موسى العبسي، عن محمد بن علي السلمي، عن عبد الله بن محمد بن عقيل، عن جابر بن عبد الله الانصاري قال: لقد سمعت رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله يقول في علي عليه السلام خصالا لو كانت واحدة منها في جميع الناس لاكتفوا بها فضلا قوله صلى الله عليه وآله: "من كنت مولاه فعلي مولاه"، وقوله صلى الله عليه وآله: "علي مني كهارون من موسى"، وقوله صلى الله عليه وآله: "علي مني وأنا منه"، وقوله صلى الله عليه وآله "علي مني كنفسي، طاعته طاعتي ومعصيته معصيتي"، وقوله صلى الله عليه وآله: "حرب علي حرب الله، وسلم علي سلم الله"،و قوله صلى الله عليه وآله: "ولي علي ولي الله، وعدو علي عدو الله " وقوله صلى الله عليه وآله: "علي حجة الله، وخليفته على عباده"، وقوله صلى الله عليه وآله: "حب علي إيمان وبغضه كفر"، وقوله صلى الله عليه وآله: "حزب علي حزب الله أعدائه حزب الشيطان" وقوله صلى الله عليه وآله: "علي مع الحق والحق معه، لا يفترقان حتى يردا علي الحوض"، وقوله صلى الله عليه وآله: "علي قسيم الجنة والنار"، وقوله صلى الله عليه وآله: "من فارق عليا فقد فارقني، ومن فارقني فقد فارق الله عز وجل"، وقوله صلى الله عليه وآله: "شيعة علي هم الفائزون يوم القيامة ".


13-5 (The compiler of the book narrated) that his father - may God be pleased with him - narrated that Abdullah ibn al-Hassan al-Mo’adab quoted Ahmad ibn Ali al-Isbahany on the authority of Ibrahim ibn Muhammad al-Saqafy, on the authority of Ja’far ibn al-Hassan ibn Ubaydullah ibn Musa al-Abasi, on the authority of Muhammad ibn Ali al-Salami, on the authority of Abdullah ibn Muhammad ibn Aqeel, on the authority of Jabir ibn Abdullah al-Ansari, “I heard God’s Prophet (MGB) mention several nobilities of Ali (MGB). If anyone had even one of those nobilities, it would suffice for his mastery over the other people. God’s Prophet (MGB) said, ‘Whoever I am a Master of, Ali is the Master of.’ God’s Prophet (MGB) said, ‘Ali’s position relative to me is the same as Aaron’s position relative to Moses.’ God’s Prophet (MGB) said, ‘Ali is from me and I am from Ali.’ God’s Prophet (MGB) said, ‘Ali to me is like me myself. Obeying him equals obeying me and disobeying him equals disobeying me.’ God’s Prophet (MGB) said, ‘Fighting with Ali equals fighting with God and making peace with Ali equals making peace with God.’ God’s Prophet (MGB) said, ‘Ali’s friends are God’s friends and Ali’s enemies are God’s enemies.’ God’s Prophet (MGB) said, ‘Ali is God’s Proof, and His Caliph reigning over His servants.’ God’s Prophet (MGB) said, ‘The love for Ali constitutes faith and the hatred for Ali constitutes atheism.’ God’s Prophet (MGB) said, ‘Ali’s party is God’s Party. The party of the enemies of Ali is Satan’s party.’ God’s Prophet (MGB) said, ‘Ali is with the truth and truth is with him. They will not separate from each other until they meet me (God’s Prophet (MGB)) at the Pool10 .’ God’s Prophet (MGB) said, ‘Ali (MGB) is the Qasim or the one who divides up Paradise and Hell?’ God’s Prophet (MGB) said, ‘Whoever cuts off from Ali (MGB) has cut off from me. Whoever cuts off from me has indeed cut off from the Honorable the Exalted God.’ God’s Prophet (MGB) said, ‘The followers of Ali shall all be prosperous on the Resurrection Day.’”
