18. A number of our companions, from Sahl Bin Ziyad, from Muhammad Bin Suleyman, from his father, from Abu Baseer who said: ‘One day the Messenger (saww) of Allah (azwj) was explaining (matters) in a session, when Amir-ul-Momineen (asws) came over. The Messenger (saww) of Allah (azwj) said to him (asws) that: ‘In you (asws) there is a similarity with Isa (as) Bin Maryam (as), and had it not been for a sect from my (saww) community saying regarding you (asws) what the Christians are saying regarding Isa (as) Bin Maryam (asws), I (saww) would have said regarding you (asws) such words that none from the people would pass by you (asws) except that he would take the dust from under your (asws) feet seeking Blessings by that’. He (asws) said: ‘Two Arabs became angered along with Al-Mugheira Bin Sho’bat as well a number from the Qureish among them. So they said, ‘He (saww) was not happy until he (saww) struck an example for the son (asws) of his (saww) uncle (as) with Isa (as) Bin Maryam (as)’. So Allah (azwj) Revealed unto His (azwj) Prophet (saww) Saying: “[43:57] When (Jesus) the son of Mary is held up as an example, behold, thy people raise a clamour thereat (in ridicule)! [43:58] And they say: Are our gods better, or is he? They do not set it forth to you save by way of disputation; Ineed, they are a contentious people. [43:59] He was naught but a servant on whom We bestowed favour, and We made him an example for the children of Israel [43:60] And if it were Our Will, We could make angels from amongst you” meaning the Clan of Hashim (as), “succeeding each other on the earth” He (asws) said: ‘Al-Haaris Bin Amro Al-Fahry became angry and said, ‘Our Allah (azwj)! If this was the truth from You (azwj) that the Clan of Hashim (as) will be inheriting from Heraclius and after Heraclius, so Rain upon us stones from the sky or Bring down upon us a Grievous Punishment’. So Allah (azwj) Revealed against the words of Al-Haaris and this Verse Came down: “[8:33] But Allah was not going to chastise them while you were among them, nor is Allah going to chastise them while yet they ask for forgiveness”. Then he (saww) said to him: ‘O Ibn Amro, either you repent or you leave’. He said, ‘O Muhammad (saww), but you (saww) have made for all of the Qureish something from what is in your (saww) hands, for the Clan of Hashim (as) have taken away the prestige of the Arabs and the non-Arabs’. The Prophet (saww) said to him: ‘That is not up to me (saww), but that is up to Allah (azwj) Blessed and High’. He said, ‘O Muhammad (saww), my heart does not incline me for the repentance, but I shall leave from you’. So he called for his ride and rode away. When he came to the back of Al-Medina, a stone fell upon him and crushed his skull. Then Revelation Came to the Prophet (saww) Saying: “[70:1] One demanding, demanded the chastisement which must befall [70:2] Upon the disbelievers, of the Wilayah of Ali (asws) which none can repel [70:3] From Allah, Lord of the Ascending Stairways”. He (the narrator) said, ‘I said, ‘May I be sacrificed for you (asws), we do not read it like this’. He (asws) said: ‘By Allah (azwj)! Jibraeel Descended with it upon Muhammad (saww), and by Allah (azwj), this is how it is recorded in the Parchment (Mus’haf) of Fatima (asws)’. So the Messenger (saww) of Allah (azwj) said to those who were around him (saww) from the hypocrites: ‘Go to your companion, for he has got what he was seeking for’. Allah (azwj) Mighty and Majestic Said: “[14:15] And they asked for Judgement and every insolent opposer was disappointed”.
