حَدَّثَنِی مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ مُوسَی قَالَ حَدَّثَنِی عَبْدُ اللَّهِ بْنُ جَعْفَرٍ قَالَ حَدَّثَنِی أَحْمَدُ بْنُ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ عَنْ أَبِی الْجَوْزَاءِ الْمُنَبِّهِ بْنِ عُبَیْدِ اللَّهِ عَنِ الْحُسَیْنِ بْنِ عُلْوَانَ عَنْ عُمَرَ بْنِ خَالِدٍ عَنْ زَیْدِ بْنِ عَلِیٍّ عَنْ أَبِیهِ عَنْ جَدِّهِ عَنْ أَمِیرِ الْمُؤْمِنِینَ ع قَالَ: دَخَلَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ص عَلَی رَجُلٍ مِنْ وُلْدِ عَبْدِ الْمُطَّلِبِ وَ هُوَ فِی السِّیَاقِ وَ قَدْ وُجِّهَ لِغَیْرِ الْقِبْلَهِ فَقَالَ وَجِّهُوهُ إِلَی الْقِبْلَهِ فَإِنَّکُمْ إِذَا فَعَلْتُمْ ذَلِکَ أَقْبَلَتْ عَلَیْهِ الْمَلَائِکَهُ وَ أَقْبَلَ اللَّهُ عَلَیْهِ فَلَمْ یَزَلْ کَذَلِکَ حَتَّی یُقْبَضَ.

Abdillah from Abi al-Jawzaa’ al-Munabih b. ’Ubayd-Allah from al-Hussain b. Alwan from Umar b. Khalid from Zayd b. Ali from his father from his grandfather from Ameer al-Mumineen (a.s.) who said: “If you turn his face towards qiblah, angels and God look at him till his soul is captured.”
