Chapter 12

The Imams are the wulat of the command of Allah and the inheritors of His revelation


محمد بن الحسين عن عبد الله بن جبلة عن على بن ابى حمزة عن ابى بصير قال قلت لابي عبد الله عليه السلام الا تحدثني فيكم بحديث قال نحن ولاة امر الله وورثة وحى الله وعترة نبى الله.


1 – Muhammad b. al-Husayn from `Abdullah b. Jabala from `Ali b. Abi Hamza from Abu Basir.  He said: I said to Abu `Abdillah عليه السلام: Shall you narrate to me a hadith regarding you (pl.)?  He said: We are the wulat of the command of Allah, and the inheritors of the revelation of Allah, and the progeny of the Prophet of Allah.


احمد بن موسى عن الحسن بن موسى الخشاب عن على بن حسان عن عبد الرحمن بن كثير قال سمعت ابا عبد الله عليه السلام يقول نحن ولاة امر الله وخزنة علم الله وعيبة وحى الله واهل دين الله وعلينا نزل كتاب الله وبنا عبد الله ولولانا ما عرف الله و نحن ورثة نبى الله وعترته.


2 – Ahmad b. Musa from al-Hasan b. Musa al-Khashshab from `Ali b. Hassan from `Abd ar-Rahman b. Kathir.  He said: I heard Abu `Abdillah عليه السلام saying: We are the wulat (pl. of wali) of the command of Allah, and the treasurers of the knowledge of Allah, and the depository of the revelation of Allah, and the people of the religion of Allah.  And the Book of Allah was sent down upon us, and by us is Allah worshipped.  And were it not for us, Allah would not have been recognized.  And we are the inheritors of the Prophet of Allah and his progeny.
