Maʿānī al-ʾAkhbār > The meaning of the saying of al-Sadiq, peace be upon him: «Indeed, we and the family of Abu Sufyan are two households who became enemies for the sake of Allah, Exalted and Glorious is He»
Hadith #1

حدثنا محمد بن الحسن بن أحمد بن الوليد - رحمه الله - قال: حدثنا محمد بن يحيى العطار، وأحمد بن إدريس جميعا، عن محمد بن أحمد بن يحيى بن عمران الأشعري، عن السياري عن الحكم بن سالم، عمن حدثه، عن أبي عبد الله عليه قال: إنا وآل أبي سفيان أهل بيتين تعادينا في الله، قلنا: صدق الله وقالوا: كذب الله. قاتل أبو سفيان رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله وقاتل معاوية علي بن أبي طالب عليه السلام. وقاتل يزيد بن معاوية الحسين بن علي عليهما السلام، والسفياني يقاتل القائم عليه السلام.

1. We were told by Muhammed bin Hasan bin Ahmad bin Waleed, may Allah grant him mercy, that he said: We were told by Muhammed bin Yahya al-‘Attar, and Ahmad bin Idrees, all of them, from Muhammed bin Ahmad bin Yahya bin Imran al-Ash’ari, from al-Saiyari, from Hakam bin Salem, from the one who told him, from Abu Abdillah, peace be upon him, that he said: «Indeed, we and the family of Abu Sufyan are two households who became enemies for the sake of Allah. We said: «Allah spoke true», whereas they said: «Allah lied». Abu Sufyan fought the Messenger of Allah, Allah’s blessings be upon him and his Family. Mu’awiya fought Ali bin Abi Talib, peace be upon him. Yazid bin Mu’awiya fought Hussain bin Ali, peace be upon them both, and al-Sufyani will fight the Riser, peace be upon him.
