إِسْمَاعِيلُ بْنُ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ الْقُرَشِيُّ قَالَ أَتَى إِلَى أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ (عليه السلام) رَجُلٌ فَقَالَ لَهُ يَا ابْنَ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ رَأَيْتُ فِي مَنَامِي كَأَنِّي خَارِجٌ مِنْ مَدِينَةِ الْكُوفَةِ فِي مَوْضِعٍ أَعْرِفُهُ وَ كَأَنَّ شَبَحاً مِنْ خَشَبٍ أَوْ رَجُلًا مَنْحُوتاً مِنْ خَشَبٍ عَلَى فَرَسٍ مِنْ خَشَبٍ يُلَوِّحُ بِسَيْفِهِ وَ أَنَا أُشَاهِدُهُ فَزِعاً مَرْعُوباً فَقَالَ لَهُ (عليه السلام) أَنْتَ رَجُلٌ تُرِيدُ اغْتِيَالَ رَجُلٍ فِي مَعِيشَتِهِ فَاتَّقِ اللَّهَ الَّذِي خَلَقَكَ ثُمَّ يُمِيتُكَ فَقَالَ الرَّجُلُ أَشْهَدُ أَنَّكَ قَدْ أُوتِيتَ عِلْماً وَ اسْتَنْبَطْتَهُ مِنْ مَعْدِنِهِ أُخْبِرُكَ يَا ابْنَ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ عَمَّا [قَدْ] فَسَّرْتَ لِي إِنَّ رَجُلًا مِنْ جِيرَانِي جَاءَنِي وَ عَرَضَ عَلَيَّ ضَيْعَتَهُ فَهَمَمْتُ أَنْ أَمْلِكَهَا بِوَكْسٍ كَثِيرٍ لِمَا عَرَفْتُ أَنَّهُ لَيْسَ لَهَا طَالِبٌ غَيْرِي فَقَالَ أَبُو عَبْدِ اللَّهِ (عليه السلام) وَ صَاحِبُكَ يَتَوَلَّانَا وَ يَبْرَأُ مِنْ عَدُوِّنَا فَقَالَ نَعَمْ يَا ابْنَ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ رَجُلٌ جَيِّدُ الْبَصِيرَةِ مُسْتَحْكَمُ الدِّينِ وَ أَنَا تَائِبٌ إِلَى اللَّهِ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ وَ إِلَيْكَ مِمَّا هَمَمْتُ بِهِ وَ نَوَيْتُهُ فَأَخْبِرْنِي يَا ابْنَ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ لَوْ كَانَ نَاصِباً حَلَّ لِي اغْتِيَالُهُ فَقَالَ أَدِّ الْأَمَانَةَ لِمَنِ ائْتَمَنَكَ وَ أَرَادَ مِنْكَ النَّصِيحَةَ وَ لَوْ إِلَى قَاتِلِ الْحُسَيْنِ (عليه السلام).


448. Ismail Bin Abdullah Al-Qarshy who said: A man came up to Abu Abdullah (asws), so he said to him (asws), ‘O son (asws) of the Messenger (asws) of Allah (azwj), I saw in my dream as if I was outside of the city of Al-Kufa in a place which I recognised, and there was a ghost of a man made of wood, riding a wooden horse and waving his sword, and I saw him and was terrified and in a panic’. So he (asws) said to him: ‘You are a man who wants to assassinate a man for his livelihood, so fear Allah (azwj) Who Created you, then will Cause you to die’. So the man said, ‘I testify that you (asws) have received Knowledge and have extracted it from its mine. I inform you (asws), O son (asws) of the Rasool Allah (saww) that you (asws) have interpreted (correctly) for me. There was a man in my neighbourhood who came to me and presented to me his asset, so I thought that I should own it for much less as I realised that there is no other seeker for it apart from me’. So Abu Abdullah (asws) said: ‘And your companion has befriended us (asws) rather our (asws) enemies?’ He said, ‘Yes, O son (asws) of the Rasool Allah (saww), a good man with foresight, resolute in the Religion, and I repent to Allah (azwj) and to you (asws) from what I was thinking of and intended for. So, inform me, O son (asws) of the Rasool Allah (saww), had he been a Hostile One (Nasibi), would it have been permissible for me to assassinate him?’ He (asws) said: ‘Fulfil the trust to the one who has entrusted you and wants advice from you even if it is to the killer of Al-Husayn (asws)’.
