4 - قال: أخبرني أبو علي الحسن بن عبد الله القطان قال: حدثنا أبو عمرو عثمان بن أحمد قال: حدثنا أحمد بن الحسين قال: حدثنا إبراهيم بن محمد بن بسام، عن علي بن الحكم، عن الليث بن سعد، عن أبي سعيد الخدري قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم: معاشر الناس أحبوا عليا فإن لحمه لحمي، ودمه دمي، لعن الله أقواما من أمتي ضيعوا فيه عهدي ونسوا فيه وصيتي، ما لهم عند الله من خلاق .


4. He said: Abu ‘Ali al-Hasan ibn Abdillah al-Qattan reported to me from Abu Amru Uthman ibn Ahmad, who reported to me from Ahmad ibn al-Husayn, who reported from Ibrahim ibn Muhammad ibn Bassam, from ‘Ali ibn al-Hakam, from al-Laith ibn Sa’d, from Abu Saeed al-Khudari, who said: The Prophet, peace be upon him and his progeny, said: "O people, love ‘Ali because his flesh is my flesh, his blood is my blood. May Allah curse those people who have reneged from the covenant with me about him, and forgotten my parting counsel about him; and they have no share (of blessings) from Allah."
