Imagine being amongst the ahlulbayt (as) where ibn Abbas was watching this unfold..

ibn Abbas narrates:
One day I was sitting in front of RasoolAllah (saw) , Ali (asws), Fatima (sa), Hasan (asws) and Hussain (asws) when Angel Jibrael (as) came down and greeted RasoolAllah (saw) with an apple. RasoolAllah(saw) accepted the greeting by taking the apple.
RasoolAllah (saw) then greeted Ali (asws) and gave him the apple. Ali (asws) ibn Abi Talib (as) accepted the greeting by taking the apple. He then returned it to RasoolAllah (saw). RasoolAllah (saw) accepted his greeting by taking the apple.
Then RasoolAllah (saw) greeted Hasan (asws) and gave him the apple. Hasan (asws) accepted the greeting by taking the apple. He then returned it to RasoolAllah. RasoolAllah (saw) accepted his greeting.
Then RasoolAllah (saw) greeted Hussain (asws) and gave him the apple. Hussain (asws) accepted the greeting by taking the apple. He then returned it to RasoolAllah (saw). RasoolAllah (saw) accepted his greeting.
Then RasoolAllah (saw) greeted Fatima (sa) and gave her the apple. Fatima (sa) accepted the greeting by taking the apple. She returned it to RasoolAllah (saw). RasoolAllah (saw) accepted her greeting.
RasoolAllah (saw) greeted Ali (asws) again and gave him the apple. Ali (asws) accepted his greeting and the apple. In an effort to return the apple to RasoolAllah (saw), the apple fell from his fingertips. The apple split into two halves and from it, a noor shone until it reached the sky. The following message was written inside the apple: In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful. This is a greeting from Allah to the chosen Muhammad (saw) and to Ali Al-Murtaza (asws), and Fatima Al-Zahra (sa), and Hasan (asws) and Hussain (asws), the grandsons of RasoolAllah (saw). This letter is a guarantee of protection to their lovers from the fire on the Day of Judgment.
