Back to book

3 - قال: أخبرني أبو الحسن علي بن بلال المهلبي قال: حدثنا علي بن عبد الله بن أسد الإصفهاني، قال: حدثنا إبراهيم بن محمد الثقفي قال: حدثنا عبد الرحمن بن أبي هاشم قال: حدثني يحيى بن الحسين البجلي، عن أبي هارون العبدي، عن زاذان، عن سلمان الفارسي رحمه الله قال: خرج رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم يوم عرفة فقال: أيها الناس إن الله باهى بكم في هذا اليوم ليغفر لكم عامة، ويغفر لعلي خاصة، ثم قال: أدن مني يا علي، فدنا منه، فأخذ بيده، ثم قال: إن السعيد، كل السعيد، حق السعيد من أطاعك وتولاك من بعدي، وإن الشقي، كل الشقي، حق الشقي من عصاك ونصب لك عداوة من بعدي.


3. He said: Abul Hasan ‘Ali ibn Bilal al-Mahlabi reported to me from ‘Ali ibn Abdullah ibn Asad al-Ishfahani, who reported from Ibrahim ibn Muhammad al-Thaqafi, who reported from Abdul Rahman ibn Abi Hashim, who reported from Yahya ibn al-Husayn al-Bijilli, from Abu Haroon al-Abdi, from Zadhan, who reported from Salman al-Farsi - may Allah bless him with mercy, that: The messenger of Allah, peace be upon him, once appeared on the day of Arafah and said: "O, people, surely Allah glorified Himself because of you on this day, so that He may pardon you generally and pardon ‘Ali in particular." Then he said: "Come near me, O ‘Ali." So ‘Ali drew near. Then the Prophet took him by his hand and said: "Surely, the blessed, completely and truly blessed is the one who obeyed you and loved you after I have gone. And surely, the wretched, completely and truly wretched is the one who disobeyed you, and showed his hostility after I have gone."
