عِدَّةٌ مِنْ أَصْحَابِنَا عَنْ سَهْلِ بْنِ زِيَادٍ عَنْ يَعْقُوبَ بْنِ يَزِيدَ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ جَعْفَرٍ الْعَقَبِيِّ رَفَعَهُ قَالَ خَطَبَ أَمِيرُ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ ( عليه السلام ) فَحَمِدَ اللَّهَ وَ أَثْنَى عَلَيْهِ ثُمَّ قَالَ أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ إِنَّ آدَمَ لَمْ يَلِدْ عَبْداً وَ لَا أَمَةً وَ إِنَّ النَّاسَ كُلَّهُمْ أَحْرَارٌ وَ لَكِنَّ اللَّهَ خَوَّلَ بَعْضَكُمْ بَعْضاً فَمَنْ كَانَ لَهُ بَلَاءٌ فَصَبَرَ فِي الْخَيْرِ فَلَا يَمُنَّ بِهِ عَلَى اللَّهِ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ أَلَا وَ قَدْ حَضَرَ شَيْ‏ءٌ وَ نَحْنُ مُسَوُّونَ فِيهِ بَيْنَ الْأَسْوَدِ وَ الْأَحْمَرِ فَقَالَ مَرْوَانُ لِطَلْحَةَ وَ الزُّبَيْرِ مَا أَرَادَ بِهَذَا غَيْرَكُمَا قَالَ فَأَعْطَى كُلَّ وَاحِدٍ ثَلَاثَةَ دَنَانِيرَ وَ أَعْطَى رَجُلًا مِنَ الْأَنْصَارِ ثَلَاثَةَ دَنَانِيرَ وَ جَاءَ بَعْدُ غُلَامٌ أَسْوَدُ فَأَعْطَاهُ ثَلَاثَةَ دَنَانِيرَ فَقَالَ الْأَنْصَارِيُّ يَا أَمِيرَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ هَذَا غُلَامٌ أَعْتَقْتُهُ بِالْأَمْسِ تَجْعَلُنِي وَ إِيَّاهُ سَوَاءً فَقَالَ إِنِّي نَظَرْتُ فِي كِتَابِ اللَّهِ فَلَمْ أَجِدْ لِوُلْدِ إِسْمَاعِيلَ عَلَى وُلْدِ إِسْحَاقَ فَضْلًا .


26. A number from our companions, from Sahl Bin Zyad, from Yaqoub Bin Yazeed, from Muhammad Bin Ja’far Al-Aqabayy with an unbroken chain said: ‘Amir-ul-Momineen (a.s.) gave a sermon, so he (a.s.) Praised Allah (azwj) and Extolled Him (azwj), then said: ‘O you people! Surely, Adam (as) did not give birth to a slave or a bondmaid, and that all of the people are free, but Allah (azwj) Made some to be in authority over the others. So the one who had an affliction and he bore it patiently in goodness so he should not consider by it as a favour to Allah (azwj) Mighty and Majestic. Indeed! There are things present and we have equality regarding it between the black and the red’. So Marwaan said to Talha and Al-Zubeyr, ‘He (a.s.) has not intended any by this other than the two of you’. He (the narrator) said, ‘So he (a.s.) gave each one of them three Dinars, and gave a man from the Helpers three Dinars, and afterwards a black boy came over so he (a.s.) gave him three Dinars’. So the Helper said, ‘O Amir-ul-Momineen (a.s.), this is a slave whom I freed yesterday. You (a.s.) have made me and him as equals’. So he (a.s.) said: ‘I (a.s.) looked in the Book of Allah (azwj), I (a.s.) could not find any preference for the sons of Ismail (as) over the sons of Is’haaq (as)’.
