Command of the Prophet صلى الله عليه وآله to take recourse to `Ali عليه السلام and the Imams


عبد الله بن محمد عن موسى بن القسم عن جعفر بن محمد بن سماعة عن عبد الله بن مسكان عن الحكم بن الصلت عن ابى جعفر عليه السلام قال قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله خذوا بحجزة هذا الانزع يعنى عليا فانه الصديق الأكبر وهو الفاروق يفرق بين الحق والباطل من احبه هداه الله ومن ابغضه اضله الله ومن تخلف عنه محقه الله ومنه سبطا امتى الحسن والحسين هما ابناى ومن الحسين ائمة الهدى اعطاهم الله فهمي و علمي فاحبوهم وتولوهم ولا تتخذوا وليجة من دونهم فيحل عليكم غضب من ربكم ومن يحلل عليه غضب من ربه فقد هوى وما الحيوة الدنيا الا متاع الغرور.


1 – `Abdullah b. Muhammad from Musa b. al-Qasim from Ja`far b. Muhammad b. Sama`a from `Abdullah b. Muskan from al-Hakam b. as-Salt from Abu Ja`far عليه السلام.  He said: The Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وآله said: Take recourse by this anza` (a man bald on the sides of his forehead) – meaning `Ali – for he is the greatest truthful one (as-siddiq al-akbar) and he is the divider (al-faruq), dividing between truth and falsehood.  Whoever loves him, Allah guides him.  And whoever hates him, Allah renders him astray.  And whoever remains behind him (i.e. does not go forth with him and support him), Allah destroys him.  From him are the twins of my nation, al-Hasan and al-Husayn, they are my sons.  And from al-Husayn are the Imams of guidance. Allah gave them my understanding and my knowledge.  So love them, and be loyal to them, and do not take an intimate friend apart from them so that wrath from your Lord would befall you.  And upon whoever wrath from his Lord befalls, then he has fallen, and the life of this world is naught but the pleasure of delusion.
