2 - [قال:] أخبرني أبو نصر محمد بن الحسين المقري قال: حدثنا عبد الكريم بن محمد البجلي قال: حدثنا محمد بن علي قال: حدثنا زيد بن المعدل، عن أبان بن عثمان الأجلح، عن زيد بن علي بن الحسين، عن أبيه عليهما السلام قال: وضع رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله في مرضه الذي توفي فيه رأسه في حجر أم الفضل وأغمي عليه، فقطرت قطرة من دموعها على خده، ففتح عينيه وقال لها: ما لك يا أم الفضل؟ قالت: نعيت إلينا نفسك، وأخبرتنا أنك ميت، فإن يكن الأمر لنا فبشرنا، وإن يكن في غيرنا فأوص بنا. قال: فقال لها النبي صلى الله عليه وآله: أنتم المقهورون المستضعفون من بعدي .

2. He said: Abu Nasr Muhammad ibn al-Husayn al-Muqri reported to me from Abdul Karim ibn Muhammad al-Bijilli, who reported from Muhammad ibn ‘Ali, who reported from Zaid ibn al-Muaddil, from Aban ibn Uthman al-Ajlah, from Zaid ibn ‘Ali ibn al-Husayn, from his father, peace be upon him, who said: In his illness, which ended up with his death, the Prophet, peace be upon him and his progeny, laid his head on the laps of Ummul Fadhl, and then he fainted. Tears from Ummul Fadhl’s eyes fell on his cheeks, so he opened his eyes and said: "What is the matter with you, O Ummul Fadhl?" She said: "You have told us about your death, so if things are going to remain in our favour, give us good tidings. And if events will turn against us, then counsel us." He said, the Prophet, peace be upon him and his progeny, told her: "You will all be subdued and weakened after I have gone."
