The narrator says, “I said to Imam Sadeq (peace be upon him) – These people narrate a tradition of their version of Me’raj that when Holy Prophet (peace be upon him and his holy progeny) ascended to the heavens he saw that on the Arsh it was written on it, “There is no god but Allah, Mohammad is the Prophet of Allah, Abu Bakr is the most truthful”

He (peace be upon him) exclaimed, “Glory be to Allah! They have distorted everything to such an extent, have they distorted even this?”

I said, ‘Yes’.

He (peace be upon him) said, “Surely Allah Mighty and Majestic be He when He created the Arsh, He wrote upon it, “There is no god but Allah, Mohammad is the Prophet of Allah, Ali is the Chief of the Believers”.

When Allah created Israafeel, He wrote on his forehead, “There is no god but Allah, Muhammad is the Prophet of Allah, Ali is the Chief of the Believers”.

When Allah created Jibraeel, He wrote on his wings, “There is no god but Allah, Muhammad is the Prophet of Allah, Ali is the Chief of the Believers”.

When Allah created the heavens, He wrote on its limits, “There is no god but Allah, Muhammad is the Prophet of Allah, Ali is the Chief of the Believers”.

When Allah created the earths, He wrote in its layers, “There is no god but Allah, Muhammad is the Prophet of Allah, Ali is the Chief of the Believers”.

When Allah created the mountains, He wrote on its peaks, “There is no god but Allah, Muhammad is the Prophet of Allah, Ali is the Chief of the Believers”.

When Allah created the sun, He wrote upon it, “There is no god but Allah, Muhammad is the Prophet of Allah, Ali is the Chief of the Believers”.

When Allah created the moon, He wrote upon it, “There is no god but Allah, Muhammad is the Prophet of Allah, Ali is the Chief of the Believers” and that is the darkness, which you see on the moon.

Therefore, whenever any of you says, “There is no god but Allah, Muhammad is the Prophet of Allah” then he MUST also say, “Ali is the Chief of the Believers”.
