4-26 Abul Hassan Muhammad ibn Ali ibn ash-Shah narrated that Abu Hamid quoted on the authority of Abu Yazid Ahmad ibn Khalid al-Khalidy, on the authority of Muhammad ibn Ahmad ibn Salih al-Tamimy, on the authority of his father, on the authority of Muhammad ibn Hatam al-Qat’tan, on the authority of Hammad ibn Amr, on the authority of Ja’far ibn Muhammad as-Sadiq (MGB), on the authority of his father (MGB), on the authority of his grandfather (MGB), on the authority of Ali ibn Abi Talib (MGB) that in his will to Ali (MGB) God’s Prophet (MGB) said, “O Ali! I saw your name along with my name in four places. I was very delighted to see that. When I reached the Holy Shrine in Jerusalem during my Ascension to the heavens, I found the following was written on the Rocks of Jerusalem, ‘There is no god but God and Muhammad is God’s Prophet. I support and back him up with his Vizier .’ I asked Gabriel who my Vizier would be. Gabriel replied, ‘He is Ali ibn Abi Talib.’ When I arrived at the lote-tree (in the seventh heaven), I found the following written on it, ‘Indeed I am God. There is no god but I alone. I have chosen Muhammad from amongst my creatures. I support and back him up with his Vizier.’ Then I asked Gabriel, ‘Who is my Vizier?’ Gabriel answered, ‘He is Ali ibn Abi Talib.’ When I passed by that lote-tree, I came to the (Divine) Throne of the Lord of the Two Worlds - may His Majesty be Exalted. On the supports of that Throne, I found the following written, ‘I am God. There is no god but I alone. Muhammad is My beloved one. I support and back him up with his Vizier.’ When I raised my head up, I saw that the following was written inside the Throne, ‘I am God. There is no god but I alone. Muhammad is My slave and My Prophet. I support and back him up with his Vizier.’”
