عَنْهُ عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ عَلِيِّ بْنِ الْحَكَمِ عَنْ هِشَامِ بْنِ سَالِمٍ عَنْ شِهَابِ بْنِ عَبْدِ رَبِّهِ قَالَ قَالَ لِي أَبُو عَبْدِ اللَّهِ (عليه السلام) يَا شِهَابُ يَكْثُرُ الْقَتْلُ فِي أَهْلِ بَيْتٍ مِنْ قُرَيْشٍ حَتَّى يُدْعَى الرَّجُلُ مِنْهُمْ إِلَى الْخِلَافَةِ فَيَأْبَاهَا ثُمَّ قَالَ يَا شِهَابُ وَ لَا تَقُلْ إِنِّي عَنَيْتُ بَنِي عَمِّي هَؤُلَاءِ قَالَ شِهَابٌ أَشْهَدُ أَنَّهُ قَدْ عَنَاهُمْ.


453. From him, from Ahmad Bin Muhammad, from Ali Bin Al-Hakam, from Hisham Bin Saalim, from Shahaab Bin Abdul Rabbahu who said: Abu Abdullah (a.s.) said to me: ‘O Shahaab! There would be a great deal of killing in the households of Qureysh to the extent that the man from among them would be called to the Caliphate, he would refuse’. Then said: ‘O Shahaab! Do not announce that I (a.s.) meant those sons of my (a.s.) uncle’. Shahaab said, ‘I testify that he (a.s.) was referring to them’.
