Then Ameerul Momineen (asws) will stand up and the voice of Allah will come, “O’ My creation! This is Ali (asws) ibn Abi Talib (as). He is My caliph on the earth and My Hujjat (proof) upon My creation. One who was associated with His love in the world will be associated with His love today and will go into jannah.” Then Imam (as) said, ‘The people who were associated with the love of Ameerul Momineen (asws) will stand up. Moula Ali (asws) will take them towards jannah. Then a voice of Allah will be heard saying, “O’ people who followed Ali (asws) in the world, now follow Him towards jannah!”

“When those who were followed shall renounce those who followed them and they see the chastisement and their ties are cut asunder. And those who followed shall say: Had there been for us a return, then we would renounce them as they have renounced us.

I am a curse upon the enemies of RasoolAllah (saw). I am the pillar of His help. I am that wrath whom Allah sent upon His enemies. I have full authority over the souls of man. I am the distributor of the displeasure of Allah. I am the names of Allah in Quran. Be aware! Do not try to interpret them according to your own desires.

I am those who are trustworthy. I am the crier of this world and in the hereafter. Verily I am that ‘izn’ (ear) of Allah who hears those who call upon Allah and His Rasool (saw). Allah says ‘and those people who remember Allah all of the time’. I am from Those people as is My Uncle, My Brother, My Cousin, and all of the true companions of RasoolAllah (saw). None of those who are Our true lovers will enter into the jahannum (hellfire). None of Our enemies will enter into jannah (paradise). Allah says ‘on the day of judgment there will be a few people who will recognize each other by their signs’. I am that sign. Allah says ‘I am the one who created man with water’. Allah says ‘an ear will remember Him’. I am that Ear. I am the one who protected RasoolAllah (saw).

Remember! A munafiq (hypocrite) is recognized through My hatred and a momin is tested through My love. This is the promise of the Prophet that momin will love Me and munafiqs will hate Me. I am the inheritor of the flag of RasoolAllah (saw) in this world and in the hereafter. I swear by Allah, My lover will not be thirsty and afraid on the day of judgment. I have come to know muawiyah (la) has been abusive towards Me. O’Allah! Send Your eternal wrath upon him and curse him. O’ the Lord of the universe! O’ the Lord of Ismael (as)! O’ the Lord of Ibrahim (as)! Verily, You are the greatest!”

6. Rabaa al Khalifa (Fourth Caliph)

Ali (as) bin Al Hussain (as) narrates from His Father that Ameerul Momineen (asws) said, “May the curse of Allah be upon the one who does not consider Me as the fourth caliph”.

Hussain bin Zaid said to Imam Jafar (as) bin Muhammad (as), “How is it possible that Ameerul Momineen (asws) considers Himself the fourth caliph?” Imam (as) replied, “Allah said in His book, “And when your Lord said to the angels, I am going to place in the earth a caliph” (2:30), therefore Adam (as) is the first caliph. “O’Dawood (as) We made you as caliph upon the earth”, therefore Dawood (as) is the second caliph. Haroon (as) was caliph of Musa (as) so He is the third. Ameerul Momineen (asws) was caliph of Muhammad (saw), so He is the fourth caliph.”

Your brother Abi Talib (as) has many children. As you are aware, Quraish have placed him in extreme difficulties. Let Us go to help him.” Therefore, Abbas (ra) took Jafar and RasoolAllah (saw) took Ali (asws).
