Sayed Razi (may Allah have mercy on him) in his book “Al Manaqibul Fakhera Fi Itrate Tahera” narrates on the authority of Abdullah ibn Masood (may Allah have mercy on him).
He reports that, One day I came in the presence of the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) and I asked him,
O Messenger of Allah, show me the truth so that I may follow it.
The Messenger of Allah(may Allah bless him and grant him peace) said, “Go to the front room(You will witness it there)
I went into that room and I saw Amir al-Momineen Ali ibn Abi Talib (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) there in a state of bowing and prostration and when he finished the prayer he prayed to Allah:
O God, I swear by the sanctity of Your servant and Your Messenger Muhammad (peace be upon him) Forgive my sinful Shiites.
Ibn Masood narrates: I saw this scene and walked towards the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) so that I could tell him what I witnessed and when I came to the Messenger of God, I saw the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) engaged in bowing and prostration, and when he finished praying, he prayed to Allah
O God, forgive the disobedient people of my ummah for the sanctity of your servant Ali (as).
Ibn Masood narrates that he was shocked and disturbed when he heard this and I fainted from distress, and when I regained consciousness, the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said to me:
Ibn Mas’ud, do you want to disbelieve after having faith?
I said, “God forbid, it is not so, but O Messenger of Allah (may Allah bless him and grant him peace), it is surprising that I saw Ali (peace be upon him) praying for the forgiveness of his Shiites through you and when I saw you, you were asking for the forgiveness of your sinful ummah through Ali (peace be upon him).
The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: Listen, Ibn Masood.
Allah the Almighty created me (sawa) and Ali (as) and Hassan (as) and Hussain (as) with His great light two thousand years before the creation of all creatures and when Allah created us, there was no existence of Tasbeeh and Taqdis. It was Allah the Almighty who split my light and created the Skies and the Land with it and I am better than the Skies and the Land.
Allah Almighty split the light of Ali (as) and made the Throne and the Chair out of it and Ali (as) is better than the Throne and the Chair
Allah Almighty separated the light of Hasan (peace be upon him) and made the Loah(tablet) and Kalam (pen) out of it and Hasan(peace be upon him) is greater than Loah(tablet) and Kalam (pen).
Allah Almighty separated the light of Hussain (peace be upon him) and created Paradise and Hur ul-Ain from it and Hussain(peace be upon him) is greater than Paradise and Hur ul-Ain.
Then darkness fell on the East and the West and the angels complained of the darkness to Allah, and they said,
O God, for the sake of this shadows which You have created, deliver us from this darkness.
Allah Almighty created light (noor) and combined it with another and created a light by combining the two lights. Then added a soul along with the light (noor) from their combination. He created Zahra (peace be upon her) and from her radiance the East and the West glew up and that’s why my daughter was named Zahra because the word ‘Zahra’ means ‘shining’ and my daughter’s radiance removed the darkness of the universe
Ibn Masood! When the Day of Judgment shall arrive, Allah will say to me and Ali (peace be upon him):
You can enter whomever you want into Heaven and whomever you want into Hell.
And this is what Allah has stated in the following verse of the Qur’an
Surah Qaf (50), Verse 24:
أَلْقِيَا فِي جَهَنَّمَ كُلَّ كَفَّارٍ عَنِيدٍ
Do cast into hell every disbeliever, rebellious one.
“Disbelievers” are those who are the deniers of my Prophethood and “Rebellious” are the ones who bear grudge against Ali(peace be upon him), his Ahlebait (peace be upon them)and his shiites.
