عنه، عن ابن فضال، عن علي بن عقبة، عن أبي كهمس، عن أبي عبد الله عليه السلام، قال: عرفتمونا وأنكرنا الناس، وأحببتمونا وأبغضنا الناس، ووصلتمونا و قطعنا الناس، رزقكم الله مرافقه محمد (صلى الله عليه وآله) وسقاكم من حوضه.


1. From him, from Ibn Fazaal, from Ali Bin Uqba, from Abu Kahmas, (It has been narrated) from Abu Abdullah (asws) having said: ‘You have recognised us (asws) and the people have rejected us (asws); and you have loved us (asws) and the people have hated us (asws); and you have maintained good relationship with us (asws) and the people have cut-off from us (asws). Allah (azwj) would Sustain you with the friendship of Muhammad (saww), and quench you all from his (saww) Fountain (in the Hereafter)’.




عنه، عن أبيه، عن النضر بن سويد، عن يحيى الحلبي، عن بشير الكناسى، قال: سمعت أبا عبد الله عليه السلام يقول: وصلتم وقطع الناس، وأحببتم وأبغض الناس، و عرفتم وأنكر الناس، وهو الحق.


2. From him, from his father, from Al Nazar Bin Suweyd, from Yahya Al Halby, from Basheer Al Kanasy who said, ‘I heard Abu Abdullah (asws) saying: ‘You have maintained relationship (with us (asws)) and the people have cut-off; and you have loved (us (asws)) and the people have hated (us (asws)) but you have recognised (us (asws)) and the people have rejected (us (asws)), and it is the Truth’.




عنه، عن ابن فضال، عن ثعلبة بن ميمون، عن بشير الدهان، قال: قال أبو عبد الله عليه السلام: عرفتم في منكرين كثيرا، وأحببتم في مبغضين كثيرا، وقد يكون حب في الله ورسوله وحب في الدنيا، فما كان في الله ورسوله فثوابه على الله، وما كان في الدنيا فليس بشئ ثم نفض يده.


3. From him, from Ibn fazaal, from Sa’albat Bin Maymoun, from Basheer Al Dahaan who said, ‘Abu Abdullah (asws) said: ‘You have recognised (us (asws)), among a lot of rejecters; and you have loved (us (asws)) among a lot of haters; and the love can be for the Sake of Allah (azwj) and His (azwj) Rasool (saww), and love for the sake of the world. So whatever was for the Sake of Allah (azwj) and His (azwj) Rasool (saww), so its Reward is upon Allah (azwj); and whatever was for the sake of the world, so it is not with anything’. Then he (asws) shook his (asws) own hand’.




عنه، عن أبيه، عن النضر بن سويد، عن يحيى الحلبي، عن ابن مسكان، عن الحارث بن المغيرة النضري، عن محمد بن شريح قال: كنت عند الشيخ عليه السلام فقال لي: جحد الناس جحد الناس يا محمد وآمنتم بالله حقا.


4. From him, from his father, from Al Nazar Bin Suweyd, from Yahya Al Halby, from Ibn Muskaan, from Al Haris Bin Al Mugheira Al nazary, from Muhammad Bin Shari’eh who said, ‘I was in the presence of Al-Sheykh (asws), so he (asws) said to me: ‘The people fought, (and) the people fought, O Muhammad, and you believed in Allah (azwj) truly’.




عنه، عن ابن فضال، عن عاصم بن حميد، عن أبي اسحاق النحوي، قال: سمعت أبا عبد الله عليه السلام يقول: ان الله تبارك وتعالى أدب نبيه صلى الله عليه وآله على محبته فقال: " انك لعلى خلق عظيم. " وقال: " وما آتاكم الرسول فخذوه، وما نهاكم عنه فانتهوا. " و قال: " من يطع الرسول فقد أطاع الله " وإن رسول الله (صلى الله عليه وآله) فوض إلى علي (عليه السلام) فسلمتم وجحد الناس، فوالله فبحسبكم أن تقولوا إذا قلنا، وتصمتوا إذا صمتنا، ونحن فيما بينكم وبين الله.


5. From him, from Ibn Fazaal, from Aasim Bin Hameed, from Abu Is’haq Al Nahwy who said, ‘I heard Abu Abdullah (asws) saying: ‘Allah (azwj) Blessed and High Educated His (azwj) Prophet (saww) upon His (azwj) Manifesto, so He (azwj) Said [68:4] And you are upon magnificent morals. And Said [59:7] and whatever the Rasool gives you, accept it, and from whatever he forbids you, keep back. And Said [4:80] Whoever obeys the Rasool, so he has obeyed Allah. And Rasool-Allah (saww) delegated to Ali (asws), so you (Shiah) submitted and the people fought against. By Allah (azwj), it is sufficient for you to be speaking when we (asws) speak, and to be silent when we (asws) are silent. And we (asws) are in what is between you and Allah (azwj)’.




عنه، عن ابن فضال، عن علي بن عقبة، عن فضيل بن يسار، عن أبي عبد الله عليه السلام، قال: أنتم والله نور في ظلمات الارض.


6. From him, from Ibn Fazaal, from Ali Bin Uqba, from Fazeyl Bin Yasaar, (It has been narrated) from Abu Abdullah (asws) having said: ‘By Allah (azwj)! You (Shiah) are a ‘نور’ (Light) in ‘ظلمات’ (the darkness) of the earth’.
