Back to chapter

9-5 حدثنا أبي رضي الله عنه قال: حدثنا سعد بن عبد الله، عن يعقوب بن يزيد عن محمد بن أبي عمير، عن إبراهيم الكرخي، عن محمد بن مسلم، عن أبي حمزة الثمالي عن الحسن بن عطية، عن عطية، عن زيد بن أرقم قال: رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله لعلي عليه السلام: اعطيت فيك يا علي تسع خصال: ثلاث في الدنيا وثلاث في الآخرة واثنتان لك وواحدة أخافها عليك، فأما الثلاثة التي في الدنيا فإنك وصيي وخليفتي في أهلي وقاضي ديني، وأما الثلاث التي في الآخرة فاني اعطى لواء الحمد فأجعله في يدك وآدم وذريته تحت لوائي، وتعينني على مفاتيح الجنة، وأحكمك في شفاعتي لمن أحببت، وأما اللتان لك فانك لن ترجع بعدي كافرا ولاضالا،وأما التي أخافها عليك فغدرة قريش بك بعدي يا علي

9-5 (The compiler of the book narrated) that his father - may God be pleased with him - narrated that Sa’ed ibn Abdullah quoted on the authority of Yaqoob ibn Yazid, on the authority of Muhammad ibn Abi Umayr, on the authority of Ibrahim al-Karkhi, on the authority of Muhammad ibn Muslim, on the authority of Abi Hamzih al-Somali, on the authority of Al-Hassan ibn Atiye, on the authority of Atiye, on the authority of Zayd ibn Arqam that God’s Prophet (MGB) told Ali (MGB), “O Ali ! God has granted me nine things due to you: three are for this world; three are for the Hereafter; two are for you and one is what I fear for you. And the three for this world are: you are my Trustee; you are my Caliph reigning over my people; and you are the judge of my religion. And the three for the Hereafter are: when I am given the Flag of Praise (‘Leva ul-Hamd) in the Hereafter, I will place it in your hand and Adam and his progeny will be under my flag; you will assist me at the gates of Paradise; and you will ask me to intercede on behalf of whomever loves you. The two that are for you are that you will not become an unbeliever nor will you go astray after me. O Ali! What I fear for you is that the Quraysh will act treacherously with you after me.”
