7 - قال: أخبرني أبو الحسن علي بن محمد بن خالد الميثمي قال: حدثنا أبو بكر محمد بن الحسين بن المستنير [قال: حدثنا الحسين بن محمد بن الحسين بن مصعب ] قال: حدثنا عباد بن يعقوب قال: حدثنا أبو عبد الرحمن المسعودي، عن كثير النواء ، عن أبي مريم الخولاني، عن مالك بن ضمرة، قال: قال أمير المؤمنين علي بن أبي طالب عليه السلام: أخذ رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله بيدي فقال: من تابع هؤلاء الخمس ثم مات وهو يحبك فقد قضى نحبه ، ومن مات وهو يبغضك فقد مات ميتة جاهلية يحاسب بما يعمل في الإسلام ، ومن عاش بعدك وهو يحبك ختم الله له بالأمن والإيمان حتى يرد علي الحوض.


7. He said: Abul Hasan ‘Ali ibn Muhammad ibn Khalid al-Maythami reported to me from Abu Bakr Muhammad ibn al-Husayn ibn al-Mustanir, who reported from al-Husayn ibn Muhammad ibn al-Husayn ibn Masa’b, who reported from Abbad ibn Yaqoob, who reported from Abu Abdil Rahman al-Mas’oodi, from Katheer al-Nawa’, from Abu Maryam al-Khawlani, from Malik ibn Dhamrah, that Amirul Mu’mineen ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib (A.S.) said: The Prophet, peace be upon him and his progeny, held my hand and said: "Whoever dutifully performed the five (daily) prayers, and then died with your love in his heart, he will have redeemed his pledge. And whoever died with hatred for you, died a death of ignorance (i.e. the era before Islam), though he will account for his deeds as ordained by Islam. And he who lives after you, with your love in his heart, Allah will end his life with security and faith, till he arrives near me at the Pool."
