5-94 Abu Mansoor Ahmad ibn Ibrahim ibn Bakr narrated that Zayd ibn Muhammad al-Baghdady quoted Abul Qasim Abdullah ibn Amer al-Ta’ee, on the authority of his father, on the authority of Ali ibn Musa al-Reza (MGB), on the authority of his father (MGB), on the authority of his forefathers (MGB), on the authority of Ali (MGB) that God’s Prophet (MGB) said, “O Ali! I asked my Lord for five things regarding you and He granted them to me. The first thing was that when the Earth is rent asunder, I shall be the first one to be resurrected and wipe the dirt off of my face and you will be alongside me. This was accepted. The second thing I asked my Lord for was that when I am taken to the Scale for my deeds to reckon my deeds, you be alongside me. This was accepted. The third thing that I asked my Lord - the Honorable the Exalted - for was that you be the one carrying my flag. This was accepted. The fourth thing I asked for was that you be the one at my Pool to serve water to my nation. This was accepted. And the fifth thing that I asked my Lord for was that you be the one leading my nation into Paradise. This was also accepted. Therefore, I praise God for what He had granted me.”

5-95 Al-Hussein ibn Ibrahim ibn Tatanat, Al-Hussein ibn Ibrahim ibn Ahmad ibn Hisham al-Mokattib, Ahmad ibn Zyad ibn Ja’far al-Hamedany and Ali ibn Abdullah al-Var’raq - may God be pleased with them - narrated that Ali ibn Ibrahim ibn Hashim quoted on the authority of his father, on the authority of Yasir - the servant , on the authority of Ali ibn Musa al-Reza (MGB), on the authority of his father Musa ibn Ja’far (MGB), on the authority of his father Ja’far ibn Muhammad (MGB), on the authority of his father Muhammad ibn Ali (MGB), on the authority of his father Ali ibnal-Hussein (MGB), on the authority of his father Al-Hussein ibn Ali (MGB), on the authority of the Commander of the Faithful Ali ibn Abi Talib (MGB) that God’s Prophet (MGB) said, “O Ali!

The fourth thing that I asked was that you be the one at my Pool to serve water to my nation. This was accepted.

5-96 حدثنا أبومنصور أحمد بن إبراهيم قال: حدثنا زيد بن محمد البغدادي قال: حدثنا أبوالقاسم عبد الله بن أحمد الطائي قال: حدثنا أبي قال: حدثنا علي ابن موسى الرضا، عن أبيه موسى بن جعفر، عن أبيه جعفر بن محمد، عن آبائه عليهم السلام قال: قال علي عليه السلام: خمس لو رحلتم فيهن ما قدرتم على مثلهن: لا يخاف عبد إلا ذنبه، ولا يرجو إلا ربه عز وجل، ولا يستحيي الجاهل إذا سئل عما لا يعلم أن يتعلم، [ولا يستحيي أحدكم، إذا سئل عما لا يعلم أن يقول: لا أعلم:] والصبر من الايمان بمنزلة الرأس من الجسد ولا إيمان لمن لا صبر له


5-96 Abu Mansoor Ahmad ibn Ibrahim narrated that Zayd ibn Muhammad al-Baghdady quoted Abul Qasim Abdullah ibn Ahmad al-Ta’ee, on the authority of his father, on the authority of Ali ibn Musa al-Reza (MGB), on the authority of his father Musa ibn Ja’far (MGB), on the authority of his father Ja’far ibn Muhammad (MGB), on the authority of his forefathers (MGB) that Ali (MGB) said, “There are five pieces of advice which one cannot find anything like them even if he travels a lot. One should not have fear about anything but his own sins. One should only place his hopes in his Lord - the Honorable the Exalted. One should not be ashamed of not knowing. When asked about what he doesn’t know about, he should just say, ‘I do not know’. The relationship of patience to faith is like that of the head to the body. There is no faith when there is no patience.”




5-97 حدثنا الحسن بن محمد السكوني بالكوفة قال: حدثنا محمد بن عبد الله الحضرمي قال: حدثنا سعيد بن عمرو الاشعثي قال: حدثنا سفيان بن عيينة، عن السري، عن الشعبي قال: قال علي عليه السلام: خذوا عني كلمات لو ركبتم المطى فأنضيتموها لم تصيبوا مثلهن: ألا لا يرجو أحد إلا ربه، ولا يخافن إلا ذنبه، ولا يستحيي [العالم] إذا لم يعلم أن يتعلم، ولا يستحيي إذا سئل عما لا يعلم أن يقول: الله أعلم، واعلموا أن الصبر من الايمان بمنزلة الرأس من الجسد ولا خير فجسد لا رأس له


5-97 Al-Hassan ibn Muhammad al-Sakoony in Kufa narrated that Muhammad ibn Abdullah al-Hazrami quoted Sa’id ibn Amr al-Ash’asi, on the authority of Sufyan ibn Ayyineh, on the authority of Al-Sari, on the authority of Al-Sha’abi that Ali (MGB) said, “Learn a few things from me. You will never find anything like these even if you get on your vehicles and ride them around the world. You should not have hopes in anyone but your Lord. You should not fear anything but your sins. You should never feel ashamed of learning what you do not know about. You should never feel ashamed of not knowing something you are questioned about. You should just say, ‘God knows best!’ You should know that the relationship of patience to faith is like that of the head to the body. There is no faith when there is no patience.”
