Then he (saww) uncovered his face, so he (saww) said: ‘Which ones of you recognise this one?’ So Ali (a.s.) Bin Abu Talib (a.s.) said: ‘I (a.s.) do, O Rasool-Allah (saww)!

عنه، عن علي بن الحكم، عن سعد بن أبي خلف، عن جابر، عن أبي جعفر عليه السلام، قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله: الروح والراحة والفلج والفلاح والنجاح والبركة والعفو والعافية والمعافاة والبشرى والنصرة والرضى والقرب والقرابة والنصر والظفر والتمكين والسرور والمحبة من الله تبارك وتعالى على من أحب علي بن أبي طالب، وحق علي أن أدخلهم في شفاعتي، وحق على ربي أن يستجيب لي فيهم، وهم أتباعي ومن تبعني فانه مني، جرى في مثل ابراهيم عليه السلام وفي الاوصياء من بعدى، لاني من ابراهيم وابراهيم منى، دينه ديني وسنته سنتى وأنا أفضل منه، وفضلي من فضله وفضله من فضلى، وتصديق قولى قول ربي " ذرية بعضها من بعض والله سميع عليم ".

Bin Abu Talib (a.s.), and they have a right upon me (saww) that I (saww) should include them in my (saww) intercession, and a right upon my (azwj) Lord (azwj) that He (azwj) should Answer me (saww) (my (saww) intercession) regarding them. And they are obedient to me (saww), and the one who is obedient to me (saww), so he is from me (saww). It flows regarding the example of Ibrahim (as) and in the successors (a.s.) from after me (saww), because I (saww) am from Ibrahim (saww), and Ibrahim (as) is from me (saww).

And the ratification of my (saww) speech are the Words of my (saww) Lord (azwj) [3:34] Offspring one from the other; and Allah is Hearing, Knowing’.
