Ahadith narrated by members of the purified progeny of Holy Prophet (PBUH) about Imam Ali (A.S): part 3

13) Al‌-Saduq, also in his Ikmal ad-Din wa Itmam al-Ni`mah, quotes al-Asbagh ibn Nabatah who cites Ibn`Abbas saying that he heard the Messenger of Allah, peace be upon him and his progeny, saying, "I, Ali, al-‌Hassan, al-‌Hussein, and nine from the progeny of Hussein are Purified."

 

14) Al‌-Saduq has also quoted in his Ikmal Ibn Abayah ibn Rab`i citing Ibn Abbas saying that the Messenger of Allah, peace be upon him and his progeny, has said: "I am the master of the Prophets, while Ali is the master of the wasis."

 

15) Al-Saduq has also quoted in his Ikmal one hadith transmitted by Imam Sadiq (A.S) through Isnad stating that the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) has said: "Allah, the Exalted, the Almighty, favoured me over all other prophets, and favoured `Ali over all other wasis, and favoured from Ali's descendants al-‌Hassan and al-‌Hussein, and chose from al-‌Hussein's progeny the wasis who safeguard the faith against the distortion of extremists, the adulteration of liars, and the misinterpretations of those who have strayed."

 

16) Al-Saduq, also in his Ikmal, has quoted Ali (A.S) citing the Messenger of Allah, peace be upon him and his progeny, saying: "The Imams after me are twelve: the first of them is Ali, and the last is al‌-Qa'im through whom Allah, the Exalted and the Mighty, shall open the east of the earth as well as the west."[2]

 

17) Al-Saduq has also quoted in his Amali a lengthy hadith narrated by Ali (A.S) in which the Messenger of Allah, peace be upon him and his progeny, says, "Ali is of me, and I am of Ali who is created of my own mould; he solves people's disputes regarding my Sunnah; he is the Commander of the Faithful, the leader of the foremost among all men, and the best of wasis."

 

18) Al‌-Saduq, also in his Amali, has quoted another lengthy hadith reported by Ali (A.S) in which the Messenger of Allah, peace be upon him and his progeny, says: "`Ali is the Commander of the Faithful according to the Wilayat of Allah, the Exalted and the Mighty, which He tied in a knot upon His Throne and required the angels to witness; `Ali is Allah's Vicegerent and Proof [Hujjatullah]; he is the Imam of the Muslims."

 

19) Al-Saduq, also in his Amali, has quoted Ibn Abbas relating that the Messenger of Allah, peace be upon him and his progeny, has said: "O `Ali! You are the Imam of the Muslims, the Commander of the Faithful, the leader of the foremost renown of all men, Allah's Proof after me, and the master of all wasis."

 

20) Al-Saduq, also in his Amali, has cited Ibn Abbas quoting the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) saying: "O `Ali! You are my successor over my nation, and you are to me like Seth to Adam."

 

21) Al-Saduq, also in his Amali, has quoted Abu Tharr al-‌Ghifari saying, "We were once in the company of the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) at his mosque when he said:`A man will enter through this door who is the Commander of the Faithful and the Imam of the Muslims,' whereupon Ali ibn Abu Talib came in, and the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) welcomed him, turned his glorious face to us and said: `This is your Imam after me.'"

 

22) In his Amali, al-‌Saduq has cited Jabir ibn`Abdullah al‌-Ansari quoting the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) saying: "`Ali ibn Abu Talib is the foremost among them in accepting Islam, and he is the most learned... He is the Imam and successor after me."
