Hadith 120

قرأ أصبغ بن نباتة على علي: وَإِذْ أَخَذَ رَبُّكَ مِن بَنِي آدَمَ مِنْ ظُهُوْرِهِمْ ذُرِّيَّتَهُمْ وَأَشْهَدَهُمْ عَلَىٰ أَنفُسِهِمْ أَلَسْتُ بِرَبِّكُمْ قَالُوْا بَلَىٰ [الأعراف: 172،] وقال: فبكى علي رضي الله عنه، وقال: إني لأذكر الوقت الذي أخذ الله تعالى علي فيه الميثاق.

Asbagh ibn Nabatah read the following verse to ‘Ali, “And [mention] when your Lord took from the children of Adam – from their loins – their descendants and made them testify of themselves, [saying to them], ‘Am I not your Lord?’ They said, ‘Yes, we have testified.”[1] ‘Ali began crying and said, “Verily I remember the time in which Allah subhanahu wa ta ‘ala took this covenant from me.”
