Hadith #2

3-116 حدثنا أبي رضي الله عنه قال: حدثنا سعد بن عبد الله، عن سلمة بن الخطاب، عن الحسين بن سيف، عن صالح بن عقبة، عن أبي الحسن موسى بن جعفر عليهما السلام قال: الناس ثلاثة: عربي ومولي وعلج، فأما العرب فنحن، وأما المولى فمن والاونا، وأما العلج فمن تبرأمنا وناصبنا

3-116 (The compiler of the book narrated) that his father - may God be pleased with him - narrated that Sa’ed ibn Abdullah quoted Salamat ibn al-Khat’tab, on the authority of Al-Hussein ibn Sayf, on the authority of Salih ibn Aqabah that Abil Hassan Musa ibn Ja’far al-Kadhim (MGB) said, “The people are of three groups: Arabs, friends and the debased. We are the Arabs. The friends are those who love and follow us. However, the debased ones are the Nasabites who dislike us.”
