The signs and ranks of those who Love Ali (as), and the Prophet proclaiming the position of Ali (as) is the same as himself in the sight of Allah (swt)
When we asked him about Ali bin Abi Talib (as), the Prophet (s) was angry and said:
Why do some people mention that one whose rank in the sight of Allah is as same as mine? He who loves Ali loves me, and Allah will accept him who loves me, and whomever Allah accepts will be rewarded with Paradise.
Whoever loves Ali will not depart this world before he drinks from the Divine River of Kawthar, eats from the Divine Tree of Tuba, and sees his place in Paradise.
Whoever loves Ali will have his prayers, fasting, and worship accepted and will have his supplications responded.
Whoever loves Ali, the angels will seek Allah’s forgiveness for him and the eight portals of Paradise will all be opened before him so that he can choose the one which takes him to Paradise with being maintained to the Judgment.
Whoever loves Ali, Allah will give him his record (of deeds) in his right hand and will call him to account in the same way as He calls His prophets.
Whoever loves Ali; Allah will alleviate for him the agonies of death and will change his grave into a garden of Paradise.
Whoever loves Ali, Allah will give him in marriage women of Paradise as many as the arteries of his body, will grant him the right to intercede for eighty individuals from his family members, and will give him women and cities of Paradise as many as the hairs of his body.
Whoever loves Ali, Allah will send the Angel of Death to him in the same way as He sends him to the prophets, will save him from the horrible interrogation of Munkar and Nakeer, will lighten his heart, will whiten his face, and will join him with Hamza; the master of the shahids (Hamza (ra)).
Whoever loves Ali, Allah will save him from the fire (of Hell.)
Whoever loves Ali, Allah will place wisdom in his heart firmly, will make the truth slide on his tongue, and will open before him the doors to His mercy.
Whoever loves Ali will be called ‘the prisoner of Allah’ in the heavens and the earth.
Whoever loves Ali, an angel from beneath the Divine Throne will call at him: O servant of Allah, make a new start, for Allah has forgiven all of your sins.
Whoever loves Ali will attend on the Day of Resurrection with a face as bright as the full moon.
Whoever loves Ali will be crowned and will be dressed the garment of honor.
Whoever loves Ali will pass the Path like the swift lightning.
Whoever loves Ali will be granted an acquittance from Hell, a permit to pass the Path, and a security against the punishment. Besides, no record of judgment will be opened for him, no balance (for weighing his good acts and evil acts for identifying which one is more) will be maintained for him, and it will be said to him, ‘Enter Paradise without judgment.’
Whoever loves Ali, the angels will shake hands with him, the prophets will visit him, and Allah will settle all of his needs.
Whoever loves the family of Mohammed will be saved from the Judgment, the Balance, and the Path.
Whoever dies on the love for the family of Mohammed, I guarantee for him a place in Paradise with the prophets.
Whoever dies on the hatred for the family of Mohammed will never smell the essence of Paradise.
Sanad: Sheikh Al-Saduq, from his father related from Abdullah bin al-Hussein al-Mueddib from Ahmed bin Ali al-Isfahani from Mohammed bin Aslam at-Tusi from Abu Rajaa from Hemmad bin Zaid from Abdirrahman as-Sarraj from Nafii that Ibn Omar said the above hadith
(Abu Rajaa commented: Hemmad bin Zaid used to take pride in this, for he considered it as the only hope.)
