عَلِيُّ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ أَبِي نَصْرٍ عَنْ أَبَانِ بْنِ عُثْمَانَ عَنْ زُرَارَةَ عَنْ أَبِي جَعْفَرٍ (عليه السلام) أَنَّ ثُمَامَةَ بْنَ أُثَالٍ أَسَرَتْهُ خَيْلُ النَّبِيِّ (صلى الله عليه وآله) وَ قَدْ كَانَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ (صلى الله عليه وآله) قَالَ اللَّهُمَّ أَمْكِنِّي مِنْ ثُمَامَةَ فَقَالَ لَهُ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ (صلى الله عليه وآله) إِنِّي مُخَيِّرُكَ وَاحِدَةً مِنْ ثَلَاثٍ أَقْتُلُكَ قَالَ إِذاً تَقْتُلَ عَظِيماً أَوْ أُفَادِيكَ قَالَ إِذاً تَجِدَنِي غَالِياً أَوْ أَمُنُّ عَلَيْكَ قَالَ إِذاً تَجِدَنِي شَاكِراً قَالَ فَإِنِّي قَدْ مَنَنْتُ عَلَيْكَ قَالَ فَإِنِّي أَشْهَدُ أَنْ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ وَ أَنَّكَ مُحَمَّدٌ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ وَ قَدْ وَ اللَّهِ عَلِمْتُ أَنَّكَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ حَيْثُ رَأَيْتُكَ وَ مَا كُنْتُ لِأَشْهَدَ بِهَا وَ أَنَا فِي الْوَثَاقِ.


458. Ali Bin Ibrahim, from his father, from Ahmad Bin Muhammad Bin Abu Nasr, from Abaan Bin Usmaan, from Zurara, who has narrated the following: Abu Ja’far (a.s.) that: ‘Samama Bin Asaal was captured by the cavalry of the Prophet (saww) and the Rasool Allah (saww) had said; ‘Our Allah (azwj)! Make me (saww) to overcome Samama!’ So the Rasool Allah (saww) said to him: ‘I (saww) give you one of three choices. I (saww) could kill you’. He said, ‘Then you (saww) would have killed a great person’. He (saww) said: ‘I (saww) could ransom you’. He said, ‘Then you (saww) would find me to be expensive’. He (saww) said: ‘Or I (saww) give safety to you’. He said, ‘Then you would find me to be thankful’. He (saww) said: ‘So I (saww) give safety to you’. He said, ‘I hereby testify that there is no god except Allah (azwj), and you (saww) Muhammad (saww) are the Rasool Allah (saww), and by Allah (azwj), I knew you (saww) were the Rasool Allah (saww) when I saw you (saww), and I did not testify by it whilst I was in bondage’.
