1. My father said, ‘Sa’ad Bin Abdullah narrated to us, from Ahmad Bin Muhammad Bin Isa, from Al Hassan Bin Ali Bin Fazaal, from Sa’alba Bin Maymoun, from Al Hassan Bin Haroun who said, ‘I was seated in the presence of Abu Abdullah (a.s.), so Moala Bin Khunays asked him (a.s.), ‘Would Al-Qaim (a.s.) be dealing in a way differently to Amir Al-Momineen (a.s.)?’ So he (a.s.) said: ‘Yes’, and that is Ali (a.s.) dealt among them with the favours and the restraint, because he (a.s.) knew that his (a.s.) Shias would be overcome by their enemies from after him (a.s.), and that Al-Qaim (a.s.), when he (a.s.) arises, would deal with them with the unleashed hand and the taking of prisoners, and that is because he (a.s.) would know that his (a.s.) Shias would not be overcome (by their enemies) from after him (a.s.), ever’.
