For more sources check this link.

Marriage of Sayyida Umm Kulthoom bint Ali (daughter of Ali and Fatima) with Ameer al-Mumineen ‘Umar as reported by Ja’far al-Sadiq:

حَدَّثَنَا سَعِيدٌ قَالَ: نا عَبْدُ الْعَزِيزِ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ، عَنْ جَعْفَرِ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ، عَنْ أَبِيهِ، أَنَّ عُمَرَ خَطَبَ إِلَى عَلِيِّ بْنِ أَبِي طَالِبٍ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ ابْنَتَهُ أُمَّ كُلْثُومٍ، فَقَالَ عَلِيٌّ: إِنَّمَا حَبَسْتُ بَنَاتِي عَلَى بَنِي جَعْفَرٍ. فَقَالَ: أَنْكِحْنِيهَا، فَوَاللَّهِ مَا عَلَى الْأَرْضِ رَجُلٌ أَرْصَدَ مِنْ حُسْنِ عِشْرَتِهَا مَا أَرْصَدْتُ. فَقَالَ عَلِيٌّ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ: قَدْ أَنْكَحْتُكَهَا. فَجَاءَ عُمَرُ إِلَى مَجْلِسِ الْمُهَاجِرِينَ بَيْنَ الْقَبْرِ وَالْمِنْبَرِ، وَكَانَ الْمُهَاجِرُونَ يَجْلِسُونَ ثَمَّ، وَعَلِيٌّ، وَعَبْدُ الرَّحْمَنِ بْنُ عَوْفٍ، وَالزُّبَيْرُ، وَعُثْمَانُ، وَطَلْحَةُ، وَسَعْدٌ، فَإِذَا كَانَ الْعَشِيُّ يَأْتِي عُمَرَ الْأَمْرُ مِنَ الْآفَاقِ وَيَقْضِي فِيهِ، جَاءَهُمْ وَأَخْبَرَهُمْ ذَلِكَ، وَاسْتَشَارَهُمْ كُلَّهُمْ، فَقَالَ: رَفِّئُونِي. قَالُوا: بِمَ يَا أَمِيرَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ؟ قَالَ: بِابْنَةِ عَلِيِّ بْنِ أَبِي طَالِبٍ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ. ثُمَّ أَنْشَأَ يُحَدِّثُهُمْ أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ: «كُلُّ نَسَبٍ وَسَبَبٍ مُنْقَطِعٌ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ، إِلَّا نَسَبِي وَسَبِبِي»

Ja’far al-Sadiq from from his father Muhammad al-Baqir that Umar (ra) sent marriage proposal to ‘Ali (ra) for his daughter Umm Kulthoom, so ‘Ali said, “I have left my daughters for the sons of Ja’far (ra).” ‘Umar said “Marry her to me O ‘Ali for there is no one on the face of the earth who is more committed than me for her companionship.” So ‘Ali said, “Now I married her to you.” So ‘Umar came to the assembly of Muhajiroon between the Qabr and Minbar (of the Prophet sallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam), where ‘Ali, ‘Uthman, Zubair, Talha and ‘Abdur Rahman b. Awf would sit and ‘Umar would take consultation from them about different matters, and said, “Congratulate me and congratulate him.” They said, “For what O Ameer al-Mu’mineen?” He replied, “For the daughter of ‘Ali b. Abi Talib.” Then he started to inform them and said, “The Messenger of Allah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) said, “Every lineage and means would disconnect on the day of judgement except my lineage and my means.”

[Sunan (520) by Saeed b. Mansoor, Fazail as-Sahaba (1068) by Imam Ahmad, Tabaqat (8/348) by Ibn Sa’d, Al-Mustadrak (4684) by Imam Hakim, al-Mu’jam al-Kabeer (3/41) and al-Awsat (5606), Al-Bayhaqi in Sunan (13393), Al-Shariah (1713), al-‘Ilal (2/190) by Imam al-Daarqutni etc]

From Ja’far Al-Sadiq this has been heard by several scholars from his companions including:

1. Anas b. ‘Ayaz al-Laithi

2. Sufyan b. ‘Uyaina

3. Wuhaib b. Khalid

4. Abdul ‘Aziz b. Muhammad

5. Muhammad b. Ishaq

So Imam Jafar has reported it several times that’s why many different people heard from him.

Shia religious authority calls for destruction of Abubakr & Umar’s graves

Twelver Shia Marja Grand Ayatollah Wahid Khorasani, the head of Hawza of Qom, one of the leading Shia scholars living today called on Shias to dig up the graves of prominent companions of the Prophet (saw), Abubakr al-Siddiq and Umar al-Farooq and exhume their bodies. The two rightly guided caliphs are buried next to the Prophet (saw) in the house of his wife, Sayyida Aisha Umul Momineen, which is now part of the Prophet’s (saw) Mosque.

The statement by this Shia religious authority can encourage Shia sectarian terrorist groups to attack the Mosque of the Prophet (saw) to target the graves.

His speech has been uploaded and translated by Shias:

Shia researcher & Debater admits the truth live on air

Salam `Aleykum,

I’ve first seen this `Iraqi Shia Doctor on “al-Mustaqillah” TV channel in 2008, where he was debating and advertising for the Shia Madhab in the daily TV episodes all throughout Ramadan.

Although polite and moderate in his approach, he used to be very critical of the Sahabah and very suspicious and often accused them of ill-intentions and conspiracies against the household.

Praise be to Allah, this Ramadan I was browsing youtube videos related to Tashayyu`, what I saw made tremble, the audacity and filth that is posted all around youtube, from Shia scholars claiming `Ali to be their Lord on the day of judgement, and others claiming the Imams turned sand into honey similar to the miracles of certain prophets, and stories of the Imams would revive the dead… all of it disgusting and is guaranteed to make you lose your appetite even in Ramadan… One video posted in 2014 caught my eye which said “Shia doctor is guided”, I saw the image of Sa`d al-Rifi`ee on the thumbnail but assumed the doctor was some unknown man who calls the show.

Praise be to Allah, I was wrong, and it turns out that after several years of debating, finally Dr.Sa`d al-Rifi`ee the respected `Iraqi Shia researcher admitted: “Abu Bakr may Allah be pleased with him held on to the Sunnah” and he said “`Umar bin al-Khattab was blessed by Allah may Allah be pleased with him and he made the conquests and spread the religion” and he said “`Uthman bin `Affan had many shortcomings but he was a good man…”

What happened is that his Rafidhi scholars couldn’t even wait until the episode ended, the Rafidhi `Ali al-Kourani called his cell-phone during the episode and humiliated him, he humiliated him because he made Du`a’ for the Sahabah, Sistani’s representative in Koufah also called him after the show and cursed him.

here’s the video:

Last words of Ali and Ibn Abass to Umar bin khatab during his final moments

بسم الله الرحمن الرحیم

Words of Ali bin abi Talib (ra):

حَدَّثَنِي الْوَلِيدُ بْنُ صَالِحٍ، حَدَّثَنَا عِيسَى بْنُ يُونُسَ، حَدَّثَنَا عُمَرُ بْنُ سَعِيدِ بْنِ أَبِي الْحُسَيْنِ الْمَكِّيُّ، عَنِ ابْنِ أَبِي مُلَيْكَةَ، عَنِ ابْنِ عَبَّاسٍ ـ رضى الله عنهما ـ قَالَ إِنِّي لَوَاقِفٌ فِي قَوْمٍ، فَدَعَوُا اللَّهَ لِعُمَرَ بْنِ الْخَطَّابِ وَقَدْ وُضِعَ عَلَى سَرِيرِهِ، إِذَا رَجُلٌ مِنْ خَلْفِي قَدْ وَضَعَ مِرْفَقَهُ عَلَى مَنْكِبِي، يَقُولُ رَحِمَكَ اللَّهُ، إِنْ كُنْتُ لأَرْجُو أَنْ يَجْعَلَكَ اللَّهُ مَعَ صَاحِبَيْكَ، لأَنِّي كَثِيرًا مِمَّا كُنْتُ أَسْمَعُ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم يَقُولُ كُنْتُ وَأَبُو بَكْرٍ وَعُمَرُ، وَفَعَلْتُ وَأَبُو بَكْرٍ وَعُمَرُ، وَانْطَلَقْتُ وَأَبُو بَكْرٍ وَعُمَرُ‏.‏ فَإِنْ كُنْتُ لأَرْجُو أَنْ يَجْعَلَكَ اللَّهُ مَعَهُمَا‏.‏ فَالْتَفَتُّ فَإِذَا هُوَ عَلِيُّ بْنُ أَبِي طَالِبٍ‏.‏

Narrated Ibn `Abbas:

While I was standing amongst the people who were invoking Allah for `Umar bin Al-Khattab who was lying (dead) on his bed, a man behind me rested his elbows on my shoulder and said, “(O `Umar!) May Allah bestow His Mercy on you. I always hoped that Allah will keep you with your two companions, for I often heard Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) saying, “I, Abu Bakr and `Umar were (somewhere). I, Abu Bakr and `Umar did (something). I, Abu Bakr and `Umar set out.’ So I hoped that Allah will keep you with both of them.” I turned back to see that the speaker was `Ali bin Abi Talib.

Sahih al-Bukhari 3677


Statement of Ibn Abbas (ra):

حَدَّثَنَا الصَّلْتُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ، حَدَّثَنَا إِسْمَاعِيلُ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ، حَدَّثَنَا أَيُّوبُ، عَنِ ابْنِ أَبِي مُلَيْكَةَ، عَنِ الْمِسْوَرِ بْنِ مَخْرَمَةَ، قَالَ لَمَّا طُعِنَ عُمَرُ جَعَلَ يَأْلَمُ، فَقَالَ لَهُ ابْنُ عَبَّاسٍ ـ وَكَأَنَّهُ يُجَزِّعُهُ ـ يَا أَمِيرَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ، وَلَئِنْ كَانَ ذَاكَ لَقَدْ صَحِبْتَ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم فَأَحْسَنْتَ صُحْبَتَهُ، ثُمَّ فَارَقْتَهُ وَهْوَ عَنْكَ رَاضٍ، ثُمَّ صَحِبْتَ أَبَا بَكْرٍ فَأَحْسَنْتَ صُحْبَتَهُ، ثُمَّ فَارَقْتَهُ وَهْوَ عَنْكَ رَاضٍ، ثُمَّ صَحِبْتَ صَحَبَتَهُمْ فَأَحْسَنْتَ صُحْبَتَهُمْ، وَلَئِنْ فَارَقْتَهُمْ لَتُفَارِقَنَّهُمْ وَهُمْ عَنْكَ رَاضُونَ‏.‏ قَالَ أَمَّا مَا ذَكَرْتَ مِنْ صُحْبَةِ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم وَرِضَاهُ، فَإِنَّمَا ذَاكَ مَنٌّ مِنَ اللَّهِ تَعَالَى مَنَّ بِهِ عَلَىَّ، وَأَمَّا مَا ذَكَرْتَ مِنْ صُحْبَةِ أَبِي بَكْرٍ وَرِضَاهُ، فَإِنَّمَا ذَاكَ مَنٌّ مِنَ اللَّهِ جَلَّ ذِكْرُهُ مَنَّ بِهِ عَلَىَّ، وَأَمَّا مَا تَرَى مِنْ جَزَعِي، فَهْوَ مِنْ أَجْلِكَ وَأَجْلِ أَصْحَابِكَ، وَاللَّهِ لَوْ أَنَّ لِي طِلاَعَ الأَرْضِ ذَهَبًا لاَفْتَدَيْتُ بِهِ مِنْ عَذَابِ اللَّهِ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ قَبْلَ أَنْ أَرَاهُ‏.‏ قَالَ حَمَّادُ بْنُ زَيْدٍ حَدَّثَنَا أَيُّوبُ، عَنِ ابْنِ أَبِي مُلَيْكَةَ، عَنِ ابْنِ عَبَّاسٍ، دَخَلْتُ عَلَى عُمَرَ بِهَذَا‏.

Narrated Al-Miswar bin Makhrama:

When `Umar was stabbed, he showed signs of agony. Ibn `Abbas, as if intending to encourage `Umar, said to him, “O Chief of the believers! Never mind what has happened to you, for you have been in the company of Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) and you kept good relations with him and you parted with him while he was pleased with you. Then you were in the company of Abu Bakr and kept good relations with him and you parted with him (i.e. he died) while he was pleased with you. Then you were in the company of the Muslims, and you kept good relations with them, and if you leave them, you will leave them while they are pleased with you.” `Umar said, (to Ibn “Abbas), “As for what you have said about the company of Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) and his being pleased with me, it is a favor, Allah did to me; and as for what you have said about the company of Abu Bakr and his being pleased with me, it is a favor Allah did to me; and concerning my impatience which you see, is because of you and your companions. By Allah! If (at all) I had gold equal to the earth, I would have ransomed myself with it from the Punishment of Allah before I meet Him.”

Author of Nahjul Balagha removed names of Abubakr & Umar

Al-Radi & al-Murtada distorting `Ali’s words

This topic was opened because as you all know al-Nahj is a chainless book, the authors took their material from various other sources, it’s clear they weren’t very honest since several of `Ali’s words in praising the Sahabah were not included in this book, however it seems that some praise for the Sahabah was later removed by al-Radi and his brother.

Take  this sermon 62 for instance:

يلقى في روعي ، و لا يخطر ببالي ، أنّ العرب تزعج هذا الأمر من بعده صلى اللَّه عليه و آله و سلم عن أهل بيته و لا أنّهم نحّوه عنّي [ 1 ] من بعده فما راعني إلاّ انثيال النّاس على فلان [ 2 ] يبايعونه ،
فأمسكت بيدي حتّى رأيت راجعة النّاس قد رجعت عن الإسلام ، يدعون إلى محق دين محمّد ، صلى اللَّه عليه و آله و سلم [ 3 ] ، فخشيت إن لم أنصر الإسلام و أهله أن أرى فيه ثلما أو هدما تكون المصيبة به عليّ أعظم من فوت ولايتكم [ 1 ] الّتي إنّما هي متاع أيّام قلائل يزول منها ما كان كما يزول السّراب ، أو كما يتقشّع السّحاب [ 2 ] ، فنهضت في تلك الأحداث حتّى زاح الباطل و زهق ،
و اطمأنّ الدّين و تنهنه

It is found in an earlier source called al-Gharat by al-Thaqafi 1/306 who is an early Shia author, he writes:

فأمسكت يدي ورأيت أني أحق بمقام رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله في الناس ممن تولى الأمر من بعده فلبثت بذاك ما شاء الله حتى رأيت راجعة من الناس 2 رجعت عن الإسلام يدعون إلى محق دين الله وملة محمد صلى الله عليه وآله وإبراهيم عليه السلام فخشيت إن لم أنصر الإسلام وأهله أن أرى فيه ثلما وهدما يكون مصيبته 3 أعظم علي من فوات ولاية أموركم 4 التي إنما هي متاع أيام قلائل ثم يزول ما كان منها كما يزول السراب وكما يتقشع 5 السحاب، فمشيت عند ذلك إلى أبي بكر فبايعته ونهضت في تلك الأحداث حتى زاغ 6 الباطل وزهق وكانت ” كلمة الله هي العليا ولو كره الكافرون 1.
فتولى أبو بكر تلك الأمور فيسر وشدد 2 وقارب واقتصد، فصحبته منا صحا وأطعته فيها أطاع الله [فيه] جاهدا، وما طمعت أن لو حدث به حدث 3 وأنا حي أن يرد إلى الأمر الذي نازعته فيه طمع مستيقن ولا يئست منه يأس من لا يرجوه، ولولا خاصمة ما كان بينه وبين عمر لظننت أنه 4 لا يدفعها عني، فلما احتضر بعث إلى عمر فولاه فسمعنا وأطعنا وناصحنا وتولى عمر الأمر وكان مرضي السيرة 5 ميمون النقيبة

Red parts are praise for the first two which was not included in Nahjul Balagha.

Or look at sermon 227 where the Rafidi replaces the word `Umar with “Fulan” so that no one may know who is being praised:

لله بلادُ فُلاَن، فَلَقَدْ قَوَّمَ الاْوَدَ، وَدَاوَى الْعَمَدَ، وَأَقَامَ السُّنَّةَ، وَخَلَّفَ الْفِتْنَةَ! ذَهَبَ نَقِيَّ الثَّوْبِ، قَلِيلَ الْعَيْبِ، أَصَابَ خَيْرَهَا، وَسَبَقَ شَرَّهَا، أَدَّى إِلَى اللهِ طَاعَتَهُ، وَاتَّقَاهُ بِحَقِّهِ، رَحَلَ وَتَرَكَهُمْ فِي طُرُق مَتَشَعِّبَة، لاَ يَهْتَدِي بِهَا الضَّالُّ، وَلاَ يَسْتَيْقِنُ الْمُهْتَدِي.

While in the earlier sources, such as Tareekh ibn Shubbah, `Alee openly says it’s `Umar:

حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ عَبَّادِ بْنِ عَبَّادٍ، قال: حَدَّثَنَا غَسَّانُ بْنُ عَبْدِ الْحَمِيدِ، قَالَ: بَلَغَنَا أَنَّ عَبْدَ اللَّهِ بْنَ مَالِكِ بْنِ عُيَيْنَةَ الأَزْدِيَّ حَلِيفَ بَنِي الْمُطَّلِبِ، قَالَ: لَمَّا انْصَرَفْنَا مَعَ عَلِيٍّ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ مِنْ جِنَازَةِ عُمَرَ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ دَخَلَ فَاغْتَسَلَ، ثُمَّ خَرَجَ إِلَيْنَا فَصَمَتَ سَاعَةً، ثُمَّ قَالَ: ” لِلَّهِ بَلاءُ نَادِبَةِ عُمَرَ لَقَدْ صَدَقَتِ ابْنَةُ أَبِي حَثْمَةَ حِينَ، قَالَتْ: وَاعُمَرَاهُ، أَقَامَ الأَوَدَ وَأَبْدَأَ الْعَهْدَ، وَاعُمَرَاهُ، ذَهَبَ نَقِيَّ الثَّوْبِ، قَلِيلَ الْعَيْبِ، وَاعُمَرَاهُ أَقَامَ السُّنَّةَ وَخَلَّفَ الْفِتْنَةَ “، ثُمَّ قَالَ: ” وَاللَّهِ مَا دَرَتْ هَذَا وَلَكِنَّهَا قُوِّلَتْهُ وَصَدَقَتْ، وَاللَّهِ لَقَدْ أَصَابَ عُمَرُ خَيْرَهَا وَخَلَّفَ شَرَّهَا، وَلَقَدْ نَظَرَ لَهُ صَاحِبُهُ فَسَارَ عَلَى الطَّرِيقَةِ مَا اسْتَقَامَتْ، وَرَحَلَ الرَّكْبُ، وَتَرَكَهُمْ فِي طُرُقٍ مُتَشَعِّبَةٍ لا يَدْرِي الضَّالُّ وَلا يَسْتَيْقِنُ الْمُهْتَدِي

Or Tareekh al-Tabari:

حدثني عمر قال حدثنا علي قال حدثنا ابن دأب وسعيد بن خالد عن صالح بن كيسان عن المغيرة بن شعبة قال لما مات عمر رضي الله عنه بكته ابنة أبي حثمة فقالت واعمراه أقام الأود وأبرأ العمد أمات الفتن وأحيا السنن خرج نقي الثوب بريئا من العيب قال وقال المغيرة بن شعبة لما دفن عمر أتيت عليا وأنا أحب أن أسمع منه في عمر شيئا فخرج ينفض رأسه ولحيته وقد اغتسل وهو ملتحف بثوب لا يشك أن الأمر يصير إليه فقال يرحم الله ابن الخطاب لقد صدقت ابنة أبي حثمة لقد ذهب بخيرها ونجا من شرها أما والله ما قالت ولكن قولت

Even Ibn abi al-Hadeed said he saw the word `Umar under “Fulan” in al-Radi’s own handwriting, it’s as if he and his brother al-Murtada were not in agreement over disclosing who the man was.

Umar the Caliph says: Ali is my Mawla

al-Salamu `Aleykum,

I’m sure you have all heard of this incident where `Umar during his Khilafah calls `Ali his Mawla, a version of it is found in Shia books, another is found in Sunni books but I was never able to find a chain for it.

Recently, I was browsing through the book “al-Riyad al-Nadirah” and I found him quoting it without a chain, he attributed it to Ibn al-Samman in his popular book of virtues, sadly this book is lost.. another source was al-Daraqutni’s book of virtues but unfortunately as well, most of this book is lost and the part that remains doesn’t include it.

Finally, I tried looking for this Hadith in the bigger encyclopedias, I found someone attributing it to Tarikh Dimashq, luckily I found it there with two chains.

أَخْبَرَنَا أَبُو بَكْرٍ مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ عَبْدِ الْبَاقِي، وَأَبُو الْمَوَاهِبِ أَحْمَدُ بْنُ عَبْدِ الْمَلِكِ، قَالا: أنا أَبُو مُحَمَّدٍ الْجَوْهَرِيُّ، أنا أَبُو الْحُسَيْنِ بْنُ الْمُظَفَّرِ، نا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ الْبَاغَنْدِيُّ، نا أَحْمَدُ بْنُ عُثْمَانَ بْنِ حَكِيمٍ الأَوْدِيُّ، نا شُرَيْحُ بْنُ مَسْلَمَةَ، نا إِبْرَاهِيمُ بْنُ يُوسُفَ، عَنْ عَبْدِ الْجَبَّارِ بْنِ الْعَبَّاسِ الشَّامِيِّ، عَنْ عَمَّارٍ الدُّهْنِيِّ، عَنْ أَبِي فَاخِتَةَ، قَالَ: أَقْبَلَ عَلِيٌّ وَعُمَرُ جالس في مجلسه، فلما رآه عمر تضعضع وتواضع وتوسع له في المجلس، فلما قام علي، قَالَ بَعْضُ الْقَوْمِ: يَا أَمِيرَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ: إِنَّكَ تَصْنَعُ بِعَلِيٍّ صَنِيعًا مَا تَصْنَعُهُ بِأَحَدٍ مِنْ أَصْحَابِ مُحَمَّدٍ، قَالَ عُمَرُ: وَمَا رَأَيْتَنِي أَصْنَعُ بِهِ؟ قَالَ: رَأَيْتُكَ كُلَّمَا رَأَيْتَهُ تَضَعْضَعْتَ وَتَوَاضَعْتَ وَأَوْسَعْتَ حَتَّى يَجْلِسَ، قَالَ: ” وَمَا يَمْنَعُنِي، وَاللَّهِ إِنَّهُ لَمَوْلايَ وَمَوْلَى كُلِّ مُؤْمِنٍ

[We were told by Abu Bakr Muhammad bin `Abdul-Baqi and by abu al-Mawahib Ahmad bin `Abdul-Malik, they both said: Abu Muhammad al-Jawhari told us, abu al-Husayn al-Muzaffar told us, Muhammad bin Muhammad al-Baghandi told us, Ahmad bin `Uthman bin Hakeem al-Awdi told us, Shurayh bin Maslamah told us, Ibrahim bin Yusuf told us, from `Abdul-Jabbar bin al-`Abbas al-Shami, from `Ammar al-Duhani, from abu Fakhitah that he said:

`Ali came to `Umar while he was sitting in his Majlis (place of gathering), so when `Umar saw him he became muddled and humble, then he moved to offer him comfortable sitting place. Later when `Ali left the gathering, some of the people asked: “O Ameer al-Mu’mineen, you treat `Ali unlike anyone from the companions of Muhammad (saw)?” `Umar said to the man: “How do you see my behavior towards him?” The man said: “I notice that whenever you see him you become muddled and you humble yourself to him and move to the side that he may sit comfortably.”

`Umar said: “And what’s preventing me from doing so? By Allah, he is my Mawla and the Mawla of every believer.”]

Source: Tarikh Dimashq 42/235.

I have to admit that this is one of those clear narrations which shows how the early generations understood the meaning of Muwalat in the Hadith of Ghadeer, not as leadership but as love and closeness.
