Hadith #11

11 - حدثنا محمد بن الحسن بن أحمد بن الوليد (رضي الله عنه)، قال: حدثنا الحسن بن متيل الدقاق، قال: حدثنا محمد بن الحسين بن أبي الخطاب، قال: حدثنا محمد بن سنان، عن جعفر بن سليمان النهدي، قال: حدثنا ثابت بن دينار الثمالي، عن سيد العابدين علي بن الحسين، عن أبيه (عليهما السلام)، قال: نظر رسول الله (صلى الله عليه وآله) ذات يوم إلى علي بن أبي طالب (عليه السلام) وقد أقبل وحوله جماعة من أصحابه، فقال: من أراد (2) أن ينظر إلى يوسف في جماله، وإلى إبراهيم في سخائه، وإلى سليمان في بهجته، وإلى داود في قوته، فلينظر إلى هذا (3).

Muhammad b. al-Hasan b. Ahmad b. al-Walid (ra) narrated to us. He said: Al-Hasan b. Matil al-Daqqaq narrated to us. He said: Muhammad b. al-Husayn b. Abi’l Khattab narrated to us. He said: Muhammad b. Sinan narrated to us from Ja`far b. Sulayman al-Nahdi. He said: Thabit b. Dinar al-Thumali narrated to us from the Master of Worshipers `Ali b. al-Husayn from his father (as). He said: One day, the Messenger of Allah (s) looked to `Ali b. Abi Talib (as) and came forward while a group of his companions were around him. So, he said: He who wants to see Yusuf in his beauty, Ibrahim in his generosity, Sulayman in his delight, and Dawud in his strength should look to this one.
