Wilayah of Imam Ali(a.s)

Muhammad ibne Yaqub said: Ali ibne Muhammad has narrated from some of our people from Ibne Mahbub from Muhammad ibne Fudayl who has said : asked Imam Ali Al-Hadi (a.s.) about the words of Allah,the Most Majestic, the Most gracious:

“It gives more certainty to the people of the Book”¹

The Imam (a.s.) said,They become certain that Allah,His Messenger and the executor of his will are true.”

I then read:

‘…and strengthens the faith of the believers…’²

The Imam(a.s.) said, “Wilayah of Ali(a.s.) strengthens their faith”. I then read the words of Allah:

“The people of the Book and the believers have no doubt about it”²

The Imam (a.s.) said,“They have no doubts in the Wilayah of Ali(a.s.).”I then asked, “What is this dobut?” He said, “people of the Book and the believers that Allah has mentioned are meant thereby. He said that they do not doubt the Wilayah of Ali(a.s.).” I then read the words of Allah:

“This parable is a reminder for mankind”²

The Imam(a.s.) said,“Yes, it is the Wilayah of Ali(a.s.)”

“…it is certainly one of the two great things”³

The Imam(a.s.) said,“It is the Wilayah of Ali(a.s.).” I then read the words of Allah:

“…whether one steps forward to embrace the faith or one turns away from it”

The Imam(a.s.) said: “One who would step forwards to our Wilayah he would step away from Hell and one who could step away from our Wilayah he would step closer to Hell.” I then read the words of Allah:

“….except the people of the right hand”

The Imam(a.s.) said, “They, by Allah, are our Shia(followers).” I then read the words of Allah:

“We did not pray”⁶

The Imam(a.s.) said,“It refers to their saying,“We did not believe in Wilayah of Ali(a.s.) and the Imams after him and would offer special greeting for them.”

I then read the words of Allah:

“Why do they run away from guidance”⁷

The Imam (a.s.) said,“It means running away from our  Wilayah.” I then read the words of Allah:

“There is no doubt that it is a guide”⁸

The Imam(a.s.) said,“It refers to Wilayah of Ali(a.s.)”⁹
