سَهْلُ بْنُ زِيَادٍ عَنْ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ يُونُسَ عَنْ عَبْدِ الْأَعْلَى قَالَ قُلْتُ لِأَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ (عليه السلام) إِنَّ شِيعَتَكَ قَدْ تَبَاغَضُوا وَ شَنِئَ بَعْضُهُمْ بَعْضاً فَلَوْ نَظَرْتَ جُعِلْتُ فِدَاكَ فِي أَمْرِهِمْ فَقَالَ لَقَدْ هَمَمْتُ أَنْ أَكْتُبَ كِتَاباً لَا يَخْتَلِفُ عَلَيَّ مِنْهُمُ اثْنَانِ قَالَ فَقُلْتُ مَا كُنَّا قَطُّ أَحْوَجَ إِلَى ذَلِكَ مِنَّا الْيَوْمَ قَالَ ثُمَّ قَالَ أَنَّى هَذَا وَ مَرْوَانُ وَ ابْنُ ذَرٍّ قَالَ فَظَنَنْتُ أَنَّهُ قَدْ مَنَعَنِي ذَلِكَ قَالَ فَقُمْتُ مِنْ عِنْدِهِ فَدَخَلْتُ عَلَى إِسْمَاعِيلَ فَقُلْتُ يَا أَبَا مُحَمَّدٍ إِنِّي ذَكَرْتُ لِأَبِيكَ اخْتِلَافَ شِيعَتِهِ وَ تَبَاغُضَهُمْ فَقَالَ لَقَدْ هَمَمْتُ أَنْ أَكْتُبَ كِتَاباً لَا يَخْتَلِفُ عَلَيَّ مِنْهُمُ اثْنَانِ قَالَ فَقَالَ مَا قَالَ مَرْوَانُ وَ ابْنُ ذَرٍّ قُلْتُ بَلَى قَالَ يَا عَبْدَ الْأَعْلَى إِنَّ لَكُمْ عَلَيْنَا لَحَقّاً كَحَقِّنَا عَلَيْكُمْ وَ اللَّهِ مَا أَنْتُمْ إِلَيْنَا بِحُقُوقِنَا أَسْرَعَ مِنَّا إِلَيْكُمْ ثُمَّ قَالَ سَأَنْظُرُ ثُمَّ قَالَ يَا عَبْدَ الْأَعْلَى مَا عَلَى قَوْمٍ إِذَا كَانَ أَمْرُهُمْ أَمْراً وَاحِداً مُتَوَجِّهِينَ إِلَى رَجُلٍ وَاحِدٍ يَأْخُذُونَ عَنْهُ أَلَّا يَخْتَلِفُوا عَلَيْهِ وَ يُسْنِدُوا أَمْرَهُمْ إِلَيْهِ يَا عَبْدَ الْأَعْلَى إِنَّهُ لَيْسَ يَنْبَغِي لِلْمُؤْمِنِ وَ قَدْ سَبَقَهُ أَخُوهُ إِلَى دَرَجَةٍ مِنْ دَرَجَاتِ الْجَنَّةِ أَنْ يَجْذِبَهُ عَنْ مَكَانِهِ الَّذِي هُوَ بِهِ وَ لَا يَنْبَغِي لِهَذَا الْآخَرِ الَّذِي لَمْ يَبْلُغْ أَنْ يَدْفَعَ فِي صَدْرِ الَّذِي لَمْ يَلْحَقْ بِهِ وَ لَكِنْ يَسْتَلْحِقُ إِلَيْهِ وَ يَسْتَغْفِرُ اللَّهَ.


282. Sahl Bin Ziyad, from Muhammad, from Yunus, from Abdul A’ala who said: I said to Abu Abdullah (a.s.) that, ‘May I be sacrificed for you (a.s.), your (a.s.) Shites hate and dispel each other. If you (a.s.) could look into this affair of theirs’. So he (a.s.) said: ‘I am thinking of writing a document so that no two of them would differ’. I said, ‘We have never been more needy of it than we are today’. Then he (a.s.) said: ‘This (will not settle the matter between) Marwaan and Ibn Dharr’. I thought that he (a.s.) had prevented me from that. I stood up from his (a.s.) presence, so I came up to Ismail. I said, ‘O Abu Muhammad! I mentioned to your father (a.s.) the differing of his (a.s.) Shites and their hatred (towards each other). So he (a.s.) said: ‘I (a.s.) am thinking of writing a book so that no two of them would differ’. He said, ‘What Marwaan and Ibn Dharr have said?’ I said, ‘Yes’. He said, ‘O Abdul A’ala! You all have rights over us as we have rights over you all. By Allah (azwj), you are not quicker to us for the rights than we are to you’. Then he said, ‘I will look into it’. Then said: ‘O Abdul A’ala! What is wrong with a people if their matter was one that they would turn their attention to one man (a.s.), taking (instructions) from him (a.s.) and not oppose him (a.s.), and assign their matters to him (a.s.)?’ O Abdul A’ala! It is not befitting for the Believer that if his brother has preceded him to a Level from the Levels of the Paradise that he should pull him back from his place, which he is in. And it does not befit this other one who has not reached (to his level) that he should push back his chest, but he should hold his hand and make him join him, and seek Forgiveness from Allah (azwj)’.
