Al-Khiṣāl > A Light Near God Four Thousand Years before the Creation of Adam
Hadith #1

28-6 حدثنا محمد بن الحسن بن أحمد بن الوليد رضي الله عنه قال: حدثنا محمد بن خـالد الهـاشمي قال: حدثنـا الحسن بن حماد البصري، عن أبيه، عن أبي الجارودعن محمد بن عبد الله، عن أبيه، عن آبائه قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله:كنت أنا وعلي نورا بين يدي الله جل جلاله قبل أن يخلق آدم بأربعة آلاف عام،فلما خلق الله آدم سلك ذلك النور في صلبه فلم يزل الله عز وجل ينقله من صلب إلى صلب حتى أقرة في صلب عبدالمطلب، ثم أخرجه من صلب عبدالمطلب فقسمه قسمين فصير، قسم في صلب عبد الله، وقسم في صلب أبي طالب فعلي مني وأنا من علي، لحمه من لحمي ودمه من دمي، فمن أحبني فبحبي أحبه، ومن أبغضه فببغضي أبغضه

28-6 Muhammad ibn al-Hassan ibn Ahmad ibn al-Walid - may God be pleased with him - narrated that Muhammad ibn Khalid al-Hashemi quoted Al-Hassan ibn Himad al-Basry, on the authority of his father, on the authority of Abil Jarud, on the authority of Muhammad ibn Abdullah, onthe authority of his father, on the authority of his forefathers that God’s Prophet (MGB) said, “Both Ali and I were a single light near God four thousand years before he created Adam. When God created Adam, God placed this light in his loins and transferred it through him from one generation to the next generation until it reached the loins of Abdul Mutalib (the Prophet’s grandfather). Then God took it out of Abdul Mutalib’s loin; divided it into two parts; placed one part in Abdullah’s (the father of Muhammad (MGB)) loins; and placed the other part in Abi Talib’s (the father of Ali (MGB)) loins. Thus, Ali (MGB) is from me and I am from Ali (MGB). His flesh is from my flesh and his blood is from my blood. Whoever loves me will also love Ali (MGB). Whoever is Ali’s enemy will be my enemy.”
