8. The two who will be in deep anxiety - Hadith #1

Back to chapter

8 - قال، أخبرني أبو حفص عمر بن محمد قال: حدثنا أبو عبد الله جعفر بن محمد قال: حدثنا عيسى بن مهران قال: حدثنا مخول قال: حدثنا الربيع ابن المنذر، عن أبيه قال: سمعت الحسن بن علي عليهما السلام يقول: إن أبا بكر وعمر عمدا إلى هذا الأمر وهو لنا كله ، فأخذاه دوننا وجعلا لنا فيه سهما كسهم الجدة ، أما والله لتهمنهما أنفسهما يوم يطلب الناس فيه شفاعتنا.

8. He said: Abu Hafs Umar ibn Muhammad reported to me from Abu Abdillah Ja’far ibn Muhammad, who reported from Isa ibn Mehran who reported from Mukhawwal, who reported from al-Rabee’ ibn al-Mundhair, from his father who said: I heard al-Husayn ibn ‘Ali (as) say: "Surely, Abu Bakr and Umar grabbed away this affair (Caliphate), while the whole of it belonged to us. So they took it away inspite of us, and apportioned to us the share of a grandmother (from an estate). (NOTE: According to al-Nasai, Ibn Majah, al-Tirmidhi, Abu Bakr believed that grandmother’s share was nil). By Allah, on the day where people will yearn for our intercession, these two will be in deep anxiety because of their action."
