We were told by Muhammed bin Ibrahim bin Ishaq, may Allah be pleased with him, that he said: We were informed by Ahmad bin Sa’eed al-Hamdani, that he said: We were told by Ali bin Hasan bin Faddal, from his father, that he said: Al-Rida, peace be upon him, said with regards to the saying of Allah, Exalted and Glorious is He: «He is the One who shows you the lightning, out of fear and covet» (13:12).
