Al-Amālī > The love of Ahlul Bayt
Hadith #1

4 - قال حدثني أبو القاسم جعفر بن محمد بن قولويه القمي رحمه الله قال: حدثني أبي قال: حدثنا سعد بن عبد الله قال: حدثنا أحمد بن محمد بن عيسى، عن الحسن بن علي بن فضال، عن عاصم بن حميد الحناط، عن أبي حمزة الثمالي، عن حنش بن المعتمر قال: دخلت على أمير المؤمنين علي بن أبي طالب عليه السلام وهو في الرحبة متكئا، فقلت: السلام عليك يا أمير المؤمنين ورحمة الله وبركاته، كيف أصبحت؟ قال: فرفع رأسه ورد علي وقال: أصبحت محبا لمحبنا، صابرا على بغض من يبغضنا ، إن محبنا ينتظر الروح والفرج في كل يوم وليلة، وإن مبغضنا بنى بناء فأسس بنيانه على شفا جرف هار، فكان بنيانه [قد] هار فانهار به في نار جهنم . يا أبا المعتمر إن محبنا لا يستطيع أن يبغضنا، وإن مبغضنا لا يستطيع أن يحبنا. إن الله تبارك وتعالى جبل قلوب العباد على حبنا وخذل من يبغضنا ، فلن يستطيع محبنا بغضنا، ولن يستطيع مبغضنا حبنا، ولن يجتمع حبنا وحب عدونا في قلب واحد " ما جعل الله لرجل من قلبين في جوفه " يحب بهذا قوما، ويحب بالآخر أعداءهم .

4. He said: Abul Qasim Ja’far ibn Muhammad ibn Qawalawy al-Qummi - may Allah bless him with mercy, reported to me from his father, who reported from Sa’d ibn Abdullah, who reported from Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn Isa, from al-Hasan ibn ‘Ali ibn Faddhal, from Asim ibn Hamid al-Hannat, from Abu Hamza al-Thumali from Hanash ibn al-Mo’tamar, who said: Once I called upon Amirul Mu’mineen, ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib, peace be upon him, while he was at al-Rahbah, reclining. So I said: "Peace be upon you, O, Amirul Mu’mineen and His mercy and His blessing, how are you this morning?" He said: He raised his head and returned the greetings and then said: "I have entered this morning with love for those who love us and patience fro those who hate us. Surely, he who loves us, awaits for repose, happiness and deliverance every day and night. And he who hates us has built a structure whose foundation is laid on the edge of a crumbling bank; which tumbles and tumbles down with him into the fire of hell. O, Abu Mo’tamar, he who loves us cannot nurse hatred against us in his bosom and he who hates us cannot love us. No doubt, Allah, Most High, created the hearts of the slaves with a propensity to love us and has forsaken those who deviated to hate us. So, those who love us cannot hate us and those who hate us cannot love us; and our love can never be combined with the love of our adversaries in one heart. Allah has not assigned to any man two hearts in his chest - loving one group with this heart and loving those who are their enemies with the other."
