28-7 Ja’far ibn Muhammad ibn Masroor - may God be pleased with him - narrated that Al-Hussein ibn Muhammad ibn Amer quoted Al-Mo’ali ibn Muhammad al-Basry, on the authority of Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn Abi Nasr al-Bazanty, on the authority of Ali ibn Ja’far that he had heard Abal-Hassan Musa ibn Ja’far al-Kazim (MGB) say, “One day when God’s Prophet (MGB) was sitting an angel who had twenty-four faces came down. The Prophet (MGB) said, ‘O my friend Gabriel! I have never seen you in this state.’ The angel said, ‘I am not Gabriel. I am Mahmood. The Honorable the Exalted God has sent me down to unite in marriage one light with another light.’ The Prophet (MGB) asked, ‘Who are they (to be united?)’ The angel replied, ‘Fatimah (MGB) with Ali (MGB).’ When the angel turned back, it was written in between his two shoulders, ‘Muhammad is God’s Prophet (MGB) and Ali (MGB) is his Trustee.’ God’s Prophet (MGB) asked, ‘Since when has this been written in between your two shoulders?’ The angel replied, ‘From twenty-two thousand years before the Honorable the Exalted God created Adam.’”
