Does a Believer see The Prophet (sawa) and Imam Ali (as) at death? And what of the Disbeliever, who does he see?

محمد بن يحيى، عن أحمد بن محمد، عن الحسين بن سعيد، عن النضر بن سويد، عن يحيى الحلبي، عن ابن مسكان، عن عبد الرحيم قال: قلت لأبي جعفر (عليه السلام): حدثني صالح بن ميثم، عن عباية الأسدي أنه سمع عليا (عليه السلام) يقول: والله لا يبغضني عبد أبدا يموت على بغضي إلا رآني عند موته حيث يكره ولا يحبني عبد أبدا فيموت على حبي إلا رآني عند موته حيث يحب، فقال أبو جعفر عليه السلام: نعم، ورسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله باليمين

“Once I said to abu Ja‘far, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, that Salih ibn Mitham narrated to me from ‘Abayah al-Asadi who had heard Ali, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, say the following: ‘By Allah, everyone who dislikes me and dies in such condition, can see me at the time of his death but with dislike. Everyone who loves me and dies in such condition, can see me at the time of his death with love.’ Abu Ja‘far, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, then said, ‘Yes, and the Messenger of Allah on his right side.’”

Sanad: Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from al-Husayn ibn Sa‘id from al-Nadr ibn Suwayd, from Yahya al-Halabiy from ibn Muskan from ‘Abd al-Rahim who said the above hadith
