Hadith #1

حدثنا أبي - رحمه الله - قال: حدثنا سعد بن عبد الله، عن أحمد بن محمد بن عيسى، عن الحسين بن سعيد، عن محمد بن أبي عمير، عن منصور بن يونس، عن أبي حمزة الثمالي، عن علي بن الحسين عليهما السلام قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله: لا يغرنكم رحب الذراعين بالدم فإن له عند الله قاتلا لا يموت. قالوا: يا رسول الله [و] ما قاتلا لا يموت؟ قال: فقال: النار.

1. We were told by my father, may Allah grant him mercy, that he said: We were told by Sa’d bin Abdullah, from Ahmad bin Muhammed bin Isa, from Hussain bin Sa’eed, from Muhammed bin Abi ‘Umayr, from Mansur bin Yunus, from Abu Hamza al-Thumali, from Ali bin Hussain, peace be upon them both, that he said: The Messenger of Allah, Allah’s blessings be upon him and his Family, said: Verily, do not be lured by the one who extends his upper arms with blood, for indeed, he will have, from Allah, a killer that does not die. They said: O Messenger of Allah, and what is a killer that does not die? He said: The Fire.
