5 - أخبرني أبو نصر محمد بن الحسين البصير المقري قال: حدثنا أبو عبد الله الأسدي قال: حدثنا جعفر بن عبد الله بن جعفر العلوي المحمدي قال: حدثنا يحيى بن هاشم الغساني قال: حدثنا غياث بن إبراهيم قال: حدثنا جعفر بن محمد عليهما السلام، عن أبيه، عن جده قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم: علمت سبعا من المثاني ، ومثلت لي أمتي [في الطين] حتى نظرت إلى صغيرها وكبيرها، ونظرت في السماوات كلها، فلما رأيت رأيتك يا علي [ف] استغفرت لك ولشيعتك إلى يوم القيامة.


5. He said: Abu Nasr Muhammad ibn al-Husayn al-Basir al-Muqri informed me from Abu Abdillah al-Asadi, who reported from Ja’far ibn Abdullah ibn Ja’far al-Alawi al-Muhammadi, who reported from Yahya ibn Hashim al-Ghassani, who reported from Ghayath ibn Ibrahim, who reported from Ja’far ibn Muhammad, from his father, from his forefathers that: The Prophet, peace be upon him and his progeny, said: "I have been taught (by Allah) the seven verses (i.e. Surah al-Fateha) of two recitations. And the whole Ummah of mine was presented to me (while in the clay form), till I was able to see its small and its big; and I looked at the entire heavens. And when I saw you, O ‘Ali, I sought forgiveness for you and your followers till the Day of Judgement."
