Back to book

5 - وبهذا الإسناد قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم: لا يزول قدم عبد يوم القيامة من بين يدي الله عز وجل حتى يسأله عن أربع خصال: عمرك فيما أبليته، ومالك من أين اكتسبته وأين وضعته، وعن حبنا أهل البيت. فقال رجل من القوم: وما علامة حبكم يا رسول الله؟ فقال: محبة هذا، ووضع يده على رأس علي بن أبي طالب عليه السلام.


5. And with the same chain of narration, the Prophet, peace be upon him and his progeny, said: On the day of Resurrection, the feet of a slave will not move away from Allah, Most High, unless He has asked him four things: "How did you while away your life? How did you earn your wealth? And where did you spend it? And He will ask him about our love, the Ahlul Bayt." A person present asked: "And what is the sign of your love, O messenger of Allah?" He said: "To love him," and then he placed his hand on the head of ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib, peace be upon him.
