وَ بِهَذَا الْإِسْنَادِ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ سُلَيْمَانَ عَنْ إِبْرَاهِيمَ بْنِ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ الصُّوفِيِّ قَالَ حَدَّثَنِي مُوسَى بْنُ بَكْرٍ الْوَاسِطِيُّ قَالَ قَالَ لِي أَبُو الْحَسَنِ (عليه السلام) لَوْ مَيَّزْتُ شِيعَتِي لَمْ أَجِدْهُمْ إِلَّا وَاصِفَةً وَ لَوِ امْتَحَنْتُهُمْ لَمَا وَجَدْتُهُمْ إِلَّا مُرْتَدِّينَ وَ لَوْ تَمَحَّصْتُهُمْ لَمَا خَلَصَ مِنَ الْأَلْفِ وَاحِدٌ وَ لَوْ غَرْبَلْتُهُمْ غَرْبَلَةً لَمْ يَبْقَ مِنْهُمْ إِلَّا مَا كَانَ لِي إِنَّهُمْ طَالَ مَا اتَّكَوْا عَلَى الْأَرَائِكِ فَقَالُوا نَحْنُ شِيعَةُ عَلِيٍّ إِنَّمَا شِيعَةُ عَلِيٍّ مَنْ صَدَّقَ قَوْلَهُ فِعْلُهُ.


290. And by this chain, from Muhammad Bin Suleyman, from Ibrahim Bin Abdullah Al-Sufy from Musa Bin Bakr Al-Wasity who said: Abu Al-Hassan (asws) said to me: ‘If I (asws) were to distinguish my (asws) Shites, I (asws) would not find them except for the description (talk). And if I (asws) were to test them, I (asws) would not find them except as apostates. And if I (asws) were to scrutinise them not even one out of a thousand would escape. And if I (asws) were to screen them with a screening, there would not remain from them except the one who was for me (asws). They have been saying for a long time, leaning upon their couches, ‘We are the Shites of Ali (asws)’. But rather, the Shiite of Ali (asws) is the one who truthful in both his actions as well as his words’.
