عَلِيُّ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنِ ابْنِ أَبِي عُمَيْرٍ عَنِ ابْنِ أُذَيْنَةَ أَنَّ رَجُلًا دَخَلَ عَلَى أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ (عليه السلام) فَقَالَ رَأَيْتُ كَأَنَّ الشَّمْسَ طَالِعَةٌ عَلَى رَأْسِي دُونَ جَسَدِي فَقَالَ تَنَالُ أَمْراً جَسِيماً وَ نُوراً سَاطِعاً وَ دِيناً شَامِلًا فَلَوْ غَطَّتْكَ لَانْغَمَسْتَ فِيهِ وَ لَكِنَّهَا غَطَّتْ رَأْسَكَ أَ مَا قَرَأْتَ فَلَمَّا رَأَى الشَّمْسَ بازِغَةً قالَ هذا رَبِّي فَلَمَّا أَفَلَتْ تَبَرَّأَ مِنْهَا إِبْرَاهِيمُ ( عليه السلام ) قَالَ قُلْتُ جُعِلْتُ فِدَاكَ إِنَّهُمْ يَقُولُونَ إِنَّ الشَّمْسَ خَلِيفَةٌ أَوْ مُلْكٌ فَقَالَ مَا أَرَاكَ تَنَالُ الْخِلَافَةَ وَ لَمْ يَكُنْ فِي آبَائِكَ وَ أَجْدَادِكَ مُلْكٌ وَ أَيُّ خِلَافَةٍ وَ مُلُوكِيَّةٍ أَكْبَرُ مِنَ الدِّينِ وَ النُّورِ تَرْجُو بِهِ دُخُولَ الْجَنَّةِ إِنَّهُمْ يَغْلَطُونَ قُلْتُ صَدَقْتَ جُعِلْتُ فِدَاكَ.


445. Ali Bin Ibrahim, from his father, from Ibn Abu Umeyr, from Ibn Azina that: A man came up to Abu Abdullah (a.s.) and said, ‘I saw (a dream) as if the sun emerging upon my head apart from my body’. So he (a.s.) said: ‘You will achieve a huge matter, and ‘وَ نُوراً سَاطِعا’ً a brilliant light, and a comprehensive Religion. Had it covered you, you would have been submerged in it, but it only covered your head. But, have you not read: “[6:78] Then when he saw the sun rising, he said: Is this my Lord? Is this the greatest? So when it set”, Ibrahim (as) distanced himself (as) from it’. I said, ‘May I be sacrificed for you (a.s.), they are saying that the sun is a Caliph or a king’. So he (a.s.) said: ‘I (a.s.) do not see how you can achieve the Caliphate and there was never a king in your forefathers and your ancestors. And which Caliphate and kingdom is greater than the Religion, and ‘النُّورِ’ the Light which you hope would make you to enter into the Paradise? They are mistaken’. I said, ‘May I be sacrificed for you (a.s.), you (a.s.) have spoken the truth’.
