What makes you weep O ‘Ali? Indeed Madinah will not find stability except through me or you

 

حدثني الحسن بن محمد بن إسحاق الأسفرايني ثنا عمير بن مرداس حدثنا عبد الله بن بكير الغنوي حدثنا حكيم بن جبير عن الحسن بن سعد مولى علي عن علي رضي الله عنه أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه و سلم أراد أن يغزو غزاة له قال فدعا جعفرا فأمره أن يتخلف على المدينة فقال لا أتخلف بعدك يا رسول الله أبدا قال فدعاني رسول الله صلى الله عليه و سلم فعزم علي لما تخلفت قبل أن أتكلم قال فبكيت فقال رسول الله صلى الله عليه و سلم ما يبكيك يا علي قلت يا رسول الله يبكيني خصال غير واحدة تقول قريش غدا ما أسرع ما تخلف عن بن عمه و خذله و يبكيني خصلة أخرى كنت أريد أن أتعرض للجهاد في سبيل الله لأن الله يقول وَلَا يَطَئُوْنَ مَوْطِئًا يَغِيْظُ الْكُفَّارَ وَلَا يَنَالُوْنَ مِنْ عَدُوٍّ نَّيْلًا إلى آخر الآية فكنت أريد أن أتعرض لفضل الله فقال رسول الله صلى الله عليه و سلم أما قولك تقول قريش ما أسرع ما تخلف عن بن عمه و خذله فإن لك بي أسوة قد قالوا ساحر و كاهن و كذاب أما ترضى أن تكون مني بمنزلة هرون من موسى إلا أنه لا نبي بعدي و أما قولك أتعرض لفضل الله فهذه ابهار من فلفل جاءنا من اليمن فبعه و استمتع به أنت و فاطمة حتى يأتيكم الله من فضله فإن المدينة لا تصلح إلا بي أو بك

Hassan ibn Muhammad ibn Ishaq al Asfarayini narrated to me―’Umair ibn Mirdas narrated to us―’Abdullah ibn Bukayr al Ghanawi narrated to us―Hakim ibn Jubayr narrated to us from―Hassan ibn Sa’d the freed slave of ‘Ali from―’Ali radiya Llahu ‘anhu:

Rasulullah salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam intended setting out on an expedition so he summoned Jafar and instructed him to stay behind in Madinah. Jafar replied, “I will never ever stay behind you O Messenger of Allah.”

So Rasulullah salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam called me and determinedly directed me to stay behind before I could speak. So I broke down into tears. Rasulullah salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam asked, “What makes you cry, O ‘Ali?”

I submitted, “O Messenger of Allah, many things make me cry. Quraysh will say tomorrow: How quickly he lagged behind his cousin and deserted him. And another issue makes me cry. I intended to participate in Jihad in the path of Allah because Allah declares: nor do they tread on any ground that enrages the disbelievers, nor do they inflict upon an enemy any infliction[1] until the end of the verse. So I intended to participate to secure some grace of Allah.”

Rasulullah salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam said, “As regards to Quraysh saying: How quickly he lagged behind his cousin and deserted him; you have a characteristic of mines. They had called me a magician, sorcerer, and liar aforetime. Are you not pleased to be in that position to me like Harun was to Musa except that there is no nabi after me? And with regards to you saying that you desired the grace of Allah, here are some abhar (spices) from the peppers that came to us from Yemen. Sell them and you and Fatimah may enjoy the money until Allah grants you of His grace. Indeed Madinah will not find stability except through me or you.”

 

Just as is his habit, al Hakim said that the isnad is sahih.[2]

Al Dhahabi reprimands him, “How can it ever be sahih when fabrication is glaring from it. ‘Abdullah ibn Bukayr al Ghanawi is in the isnad. He is munkar al hadith and he narrates from Hakim ibn Jubayr who is da’if and had rafd dogmas.”

Al Amini again displays dishonesty and conveniently conceals al Dhahabi’s correction and suffices with al Hakim’s verdict.[3]
