Back to book

عَنْهُ عَنْ صَالِحٍ عَنِ الْحَجَّالِ عَنْ بَعْضِ أَصْحَابِهِ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ (عليه السلام) قَالَ سَأَلْتُهُ عَنْ قَوْلِ اللَّهِ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ وَ مَنْ قُتِلَ مَظْلُوماً فَقَدْ جَعَلْنا لِوَلِيِّهِ سُلْطاناً فَلا يُسْرِفْ فِي الْقَتْلِ قَالَ نَزَلَتْ فِي الْحُسَيْنِ (عليه السلام) لَوْ قُتِلَ أَهْلُ الْأَرْضِ بِهِ مَا كَانَ سَرَفاً.


365. From him, from Salih, from Al-Hajjaal, from one of his companions, who has reported: I asked Abu Abdullah (asws) about the Statement of Allah (azwj) Mighty and Majestic: “[17:33] and whoever is slain unjustly, We have indeed given to his heir authority, so let him not exceed the just limits in slaying”. He (asws) said: ‘It was Revealed regarding Al-Husayn (asws). Even if all the people of the earth were to be killed for it, it would not be excessive’.
