يُونُسَ بْنِ خَبَّابٍ عَنِ الْبَاقِرِ عَنْ آبَائِهِؑ قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللّهِ ﷺ مَا بَالُ اَقْوَامٍ اِذَا ذَكَرُوا آلَ اِبْرَاهِيمَ وَ آلَ عِمْرَانَ اسْتَبْشَرُوا وَ اِذَا ذَكَرُوا آلَ مُحَمَّدٍ اشْمَاَزَّتْ قُلُوبُهُمْ وَ الَّذِي نَفْسُ مُحَمَّدٍ بِيَدِهِ لَوْ اَنَّ اَحَدَهُمْ وَافَى بِعَمَلِ سَبْعِينَ نَبِيّاً يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ مَا قَبِلَ اللَّهُ مِنْهُ حَتَّى يُوَافِيَ بِوَلَايَتِي وَ وَلَايَةِ عَلِيِّ بْنِ اَبِي طَالِبٍ

Yunus Ibn Khabbaab reports from Imam al-Baqer (peace be upon him) vide his forefathers (peace be upon him) that the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him and his holy progeny) said,

“What is wrong with the people? When they mention the progeny of Ibraheem and the progeny of Imran, they rejoice. But when they mention the progeny of Muhammad (peace be upon him and his holy progeny), their hearts start trembling. I swear by the One in whose hand is Muhammad’s life! If any one of them brings the acts of seventy Prophets (peace be upon them) on the Day of Judgment, Allah will not accept from him till he brings my mastership and the mastership of Ali Ibn Abi Talib (peace be upon him).”

Note:

When Allah is the Truth and the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him and his holy progeny) is truthful, then why do the opponents feel like that? It means in reality they don’t believe in the truthfulness of the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him and his holy progeny).

Mastership is the condition. If a Christian believes in all Prophets (peace be upon them) but does not believe in the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him and his holy progeny), will his religion be accepted? The same applies for the mastership of Ali Ibn Abi Talib (peace be upon him).
