يا رسول الله؛ إنك قلت لي يوم أحد، حين أخرجت عن الشهادة، واستشهد من استشهد: إن الشهادة من ورائك. فقال: كيف صبرك إذا خضبت هذه من هذه؟ وأهوى بيده إلى لحيته ورأسه. فقال علي: أما بينت ما بينت، فليس ذلك من مواطن الصبر، ولكن هو من مواطن البشرى والكرامة.
(‘Ali radiya Llahu ‘anhu said,) “O Messenger of Allah, verily you said to me on the Day of Uhud when you were excluded from shahadah (martyrdom) and whoever was martyred was martyred: “Verily shahadah (martyrdom) is behind you… How will you show patience when from here to here will be stained (in blood)?” He stretched his hand towards his beard and his head. ‘Ali said, “Did you not explain what you explained? These are not instances wherein you exercise patience; rather, they are instances of glad tidings and honour.”
Al Tabarani and others narrate — from Ishaq ibn ‘Abdullah ibn Kaysan — from his father — from ‘Ikrimah — from Ibn ‘Abbas who said, “‘Ali said…”
Ishaq ibn ‘Abdullah ibn Kaysan al Marwazi was deemed layyin (lenient on hadith) by Abu Ahmed al Hakim. Al Bukhari says he is munkar al hadith (unacceptable in hadith).
His father, ‘Abdullah ibn Kaysan is da’if (weak).
Al Haythami writes, “Al Tabarani narrates this hadith. It contains the narrator ‘Abdullah ibn Kaysan al Marwazi. He is da’if (weak).”
