إن خليلي حدثني أني أضرب لسبع يمضين من رمضان، وهي الليلة التي مات فيها موسى، وأموت لاثنين وعشرين يمضين من رمضان، وهى الليلة التي رفع فيها عيسى.

(‘Ali said,) Verily my khalil (close friend—i.e. the Prophet salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam informed me that I will be struck on the 7th of Ramadan; it was the night in which Musa passed away; and I will die on the 22nd of Ramadan, the night in which ‘Isa was raised (to the Heavens).
