4 - قال: أخبرني أبو عبيد الله محمد بن عمران المرزباني قال: حدثنا محمد بن الحسين الجوهري قال: حدثنا هارون بن عبيد الله المقري قال: حدثنا عثمان بن سعيد قال: حدثنا أبو يحيى التميمي ، عن كثير، عن أبي مريم الخولاني، عن مالك بن ضمرة قال: سمعت عليا أمير المؤمنين عليه السلام يقول: ألا إنكم معرضون على لعني و دعاي كذابا ، فمن لعنني كارها مكرها يعلم الله أنه كان مكرها وردت أنا وهو على محمد صلى الله عليه وآله معا. ومن أمسك لسانه فلم يلعني سبقني كرمية سهم أو لمحة بالبصر. ومن لعنني منشرحا صدره بلعني فلا حجاب بينه وبين الله ، ولا حجة له عند محمد صلى الله عليه وآله، ألا إن محمدا صلى الله عليه وآله أخذ بيدي يوما فقال: من بايع هؤلاء الخمس ثم مات وهو يحبك فقد قضى نحبه، ومن مات وهو يبغضك مات ميتة جاهلية يحاسب بما عمل في الإسلام، وإن عاش بعدك وهو يحبك ختم الله له بالأمن والإيمان كلما طلعت شمس أو غربت.


4. He said: Abu Abdilllah Muhammad ibn Imran al-Marzbani reported to me from Muhammad ibnal-Husayn al-Jawhari, who reported from Haroon ibn Ubaidullah al-Muqri, who reported from Uthman ibn Saeed, who reported from Abu Yahya al-Tamimi, from Katheer, from Abu Maryam al-Khawlani, from Malik ibn Dhamrah who said: I heard ‘Ali, Amirul Mu’mineen peace be upon him, say: "Be it known to you that you will soon be subjected to invoking curse and imprecation against me wrongfully. Whoever curses me unwillingly or by coercion, Allah will know that he has been forced into it. I shall arrive with him together upon Muhammad, peace be upon him and his progeny. And he, who restrains his tongue and does not invoke curse upon me, he will race unto me as quickly as a fling of an arrow or a wink. And one who invokes curse upon me with a willing, cheerful heart, for so doing, there will be no veil debarring him from Allah’s wrath and he shall have no excuse before Muhammad, peace be upon him and his progeny. Be it known that, one day, Muhammad, peace be upon him and his progeny, held my hand and said: Whoever has sworn allegiance on these five (fingers i.e. the hand) and then died with love and affection for you, will have completed his pledge. And one who dies with hatred towards you, dies a death of Kufr (pre-Islamic era), even though he will account for his deeds committed while professing Islam; and if he lives after you have gone, with lasting love for you, Allah shall end up his days with peace and faith, for as long as the sun rises and sets."
