Maʿānī al-ʾAkhbār > The meaning of the solid rope to which there is no breakage
Hadith #1

حدثنا محمد بن علي ماجيلويه، قال: حدثني عمي محمد بن أبي القاسم، عن أحمد بن أبي عبد الله البرقي، عن أبيه، عن خلف بن حماد الأسدي، عن أبي الحسن العبدي، عن الأعمش عن عباية بن ربعي، عن عبد الله بن عباس، قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله: من أحب أن يتمسك بالعروة الوثقى التي لا انفصام لها فليتمسك بولاية أخي ووصيي علي بن أبي طالب فإنه لا يهلك من أحبه وتولاه ولا ينجو من أبغضه وعاداه.

1. We were told by Muhammed bin Ali Majilawayh, that he said: I was told by my paternal uncle, Muhammed bin Abi’l-Qasem, from Ahmad bin Abi Abdillah al-Barqi, from his father, from Khalaf bin Hammad al-Asadi, from Abu’l-Hasan al-‘Abdi, from al-A’mash, from ‘Abaya bin Rab’ee, from Abdullah bin Abbas, that he said: The Messenger of Allah, Allah’s blessings be upon him and his Family, said: The one who would like to adhere to the solid rope to which there is no breakage, let him adhere to the Divine Authority of my brother and Successor, Ali bin Abi Talib, for indeed, the one who loves him and befriends him will not perish, and the one who hates him and antagonizes him will not be saved.
