4 - قال: أخبرني أبو حفص عمر بن محمد الصيرفي، قال: أخبرنا محمد بن إدريس قال: حدثنا الحسن بن عطية قال: حدثنا رجل يقال [له]: إسرائيل ، عن ميسرة بن حبيب، عن المنهال، عن زر بن حبيش، عن حذيفة قال: قال لي النبي صلى الله عليه وآله: أما رأيت الشخص الذي اعترض لي؟ قلت: بلى يا رسول الله، قال: ذاك ملك لم يهبط قط إلى الأرض قبل الساعة، استأذن الله عز وجل في السلام على علي، فأذن له فسلم عليه، وبشرني أن الحسن والحسين سيدا شباب أهل الجنة، وأن فاطمة سيدة نساء أهل الجنة.


4. He said: Abu Hafs Umar ibn Muhammad al-Sayrafi reported to me from Muhammad ibn ldress who reported from al-Hasan ibn Atiyyah who reported from a man called Israeel, from Maysarah ibn Habib, from al-Minhal , from Dharr ibn Jaysh, from Huzaifah who said: The Prophet, peace be upon him and his progeny, (once) said to me: "Did you see the person who presented himself to me?" I said: "Yes, O messenger of Allah." He said: "He was an angel who had never descended before this. He sought permission from Allah, Most High, to greet ‘Ali; he was granted permission and then greeted him. And he gave me glad news that al-Hasan and al-Husayn are the masters of the youths of Paradise, and Fatimah is the leading lady of all the women in Paradise."
