عنه، عن حمزة بن عبد الله، عن جميل بن دراج، عن محمد بن مسلم الثقفي قال: قال أبو جعفر عليه السلام: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله: إن عن يمين العرش قوما وجوههم من نور على منابر من نور يغبطهم النبيون ليسو بأنبياء ولا شهداء، فقالوا: يا نبي الله وما ازدادوا هؤلاء من الله إذا لم يكونوا أنبياء ولا شهداء إلا قربا من الله؟ - قال: اولئك شيعة علي وعلي إمامهم.

1. From him, from Hamza Bin Abdullah, from Jameel Bin Daraaj, from Muhammad Bin Muslim Al Saqafy who said, ‘Abu Abdullah (a.s.) said: ‘Rasool-Allah (saww) said: ‘On the right of the Throne there would be a people with faces of ‘نور’ Light upon Pulpits of Light, being the envy of the Prophets (as), but they would be neither Prophets (as) nor Martyrs’. So they said, ‘O Prophet (saww) of Allah (saww)! And who are these additional ones from Allah , when they will neither be Prophets (as), nor Martyrs, but they are in the Proximity from Allah ?’ He (saww) said: ‘Those would be the Shiah of Ali (a.s.), and Ali (a.s.) is their Imam (a.s.)’.

عنه، عن ابن فضال، عن مثنى الحناط، عن محمد بن مسلم، عن أبي جعفر عليه السلام نحوه واختلف فيه بعض لفظه قال: يغبطهم النبيون والمرسلون، قلت: جعلت فداك ما أعظم منزلة هؤلاء القوم؟! فقال: هؤلاء والله شيعة علي وهو إمامهم.

2. From him, from Ibn Fazal, from Masny Al Hanaat, from Muhammad Bin Muslim, (It has been narrated) from Abu Ja’far (a.s.) approximately, and there is a differing with regards to its wordings. He (a.s.) said: ‘They would be the envy of the Prophets (as) and the Mursil Prophets (as)’. I said, ‘May I be sacrificed for you (a.s.)! What great is the status of these people?’ So he (a.s.) said: ‘By Allah ! (They are) the Shiah of Ali (a.s.), and Ali (a.s.) is their Imam (a.s.)’.

عنه، عن ابن فضال، عن محمد بن فضيل، عن أبي حمزة، قال: قال أبو عبد الله عليه السلام: شيعتنا أقرب الخلق من عرش الله يوم القيامة بعدنا.

3. From him, from Ibn Fazaal, from Muhammad Bin Fazeyl, from Abu Hamza who said, ‘Abu Abdullah (a.s.) said: ‘Our (a.s.) Shiah are the closest of the creatures from the Throne of Allah on the Day of the Judgement, after us (a.s.)’.

عنه، عن أبيه، عن سعدان بن مسلم، عن الحسين بن أبي العلاء قال: قال أبو عبد الله عليه السلام: يا حسين، شيعتنا ما أقربهم من الله وأحسن صنع الله إليهم يوم القيامة! والله لو لا أن يدخلهم وهن ويستعظم الناس ذلك لسلمت عليهم الملائكة قبلا

4. From him, from his father, from Sa’dan Bin Muslim, from Al Husayn Bin Abu Al A’la who said, ‘Abu Abdullah (a.s.) said: ‘O Husayn! No one is closer to Allah than our (a.s.) Shiah, and how beautiful is Allah ’s Conduct towards them on the Day of Judgment! By Allah ! If there was no risk of their souls getting spoiled and they would go around boasting about their status, indeed Angels would descend and appear (in person) to say ‘Salaam’ to them.
