The Heroism of Abu Dujana, The Sword of Dhulfiqaar, and Jibreel’s testimony “And I from you both”

Abu Abdullah (as) has said: ‘When it was the Day of (battle of) Uhud, the companions of the Messenger of Allah (sawa) fled to the extent that there did not remain with him anyone except for Ali Bin Abu Talib (as), and Abu Dujana Samaak Bin Kharsha. So the Prophet (sawa) said to him: ‘O Abu Dujana! But, did you not see your people?’ He said, ‘Yes’. The Messenger of Allah (sawa) said: ‘Attach yourself with your people’. He said, ‘It was not upon this that I pledged allegiance to Allah (swt) and His Messenger’. The Messenger of Allah (sawa) said: ‘You are is a free (state to go)’. He said, ‘By Allah The Qureysh will not narrate about me that I abandoned you and fled, until I taste what you taste’.
So the Prophet (sawa) bade him well, and Ali (as), every time a group attacked the Messenger of Allah (sawa), faced them and repulsed them until most of them were killed, wounded, until his sword broke, so Ali (as) came to the Prophet (sawa) and greeted: ‘O Messenger of Allah! The man fights with his sword, and my sword is broken. So the Messenger of Allah (sawa) gave him his sword Dhulfiqaar. So Ali (as) did not cease to defend the Messenger of Allah (sawa) with it until he made them flee and cut them down’.
So Jibraeel descended unto him and said: ‘O Muhammad! This here is the affection from Ali for you’. So the Prophet (sawa) said: ‘Ali is from me and I from him’. So Jibraeel said: ‘And I from you both’.
And a boom was heard from the sky: “There is no sword except for Dhulfiqaar and there is no Youth (Believer/Hero) except for Ali (as)”.

 الصدوق ، عن الهمداني ، عن علي ، عن أبيه ، عن البزنطي ، وابن أبي عمير معاً ، عن أبان بن عثمان ، عن أبي عبد الله ( عليه السلام ) قال : لما كان يوم أُحد انهزم أصحاب رسول الله ( صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم ) حتى لم يبق معه إلاّ علي بن أبي طالب ( عليه السلام ) وأبو دجانة سماك بن خرشة فقال له النبي ( صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم ) : يا أبا دجانة أما ترى قومك قال : بلى قال : الحق بقومك قال : ما على هذا بايعت الله ورسوله قال : أنت في حلّ قال : والله لا تتحدث قريش بأنّي خذلتك وفررت حتى أذوق ما تذوق فجزاه النبي ( صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم ) خيراً ، وكان علي ( عليه السلام ) كلما حملت طائفة على رسول الله ( صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم ) استقبلهم وردّهم حتى أكثر فيهم القتل والجراحات حتى انكسر سيفه فجاء إلى النبي ( صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم ) فقال : يا رسول الله إنّ الرجل يقاتل بسلاحه وقد انكسر سيفي فأعطاه ( عليه السلام ) سيفه ذا الفقار فما زال يدفع به عن رسول الله ( صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم ) حتى اثر وأنكر ، فنزل عليه جبرئيل وقال : يا محمّد انّ هذه لهي المواساة من علي ( عليه السلام ) لك فقال النبي ( صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم ) : إنّه مني وأنا منه فقال جبرئيل ( عليه السلام ) : وأنا منكما وسمعوا دويّاً من السماء : لا سيف إلاّ ذو الفقار ولا فتى إلاّ علي
