عَنِ ابْنِ نُبَاتَةَ قَالَ قَالَ اَمِيرُ الْمُؤْمِنِينَؑ اِنَّا اَهْلُ بَيْتٍ عُلِّمْنَا عِلْمَ الْمَنَايَا وَ الْبَلَايَا وَ الْاَنْسَابِ وَ اللهِ لَوْ اَنَّ رَجُلًا مِنَّا قَامَ عَلَى جِسْرٍ ثُمَّ عُرِضَتْ عَلَيْهِ هَذِهِ الْاُمَّةُ لَحَدَّثَهُمْ بِاَسْمَائِهِمْ وَ اَنْسَابِهِمْ 

(Asbagh) Ibn Nubaatah reports that Ameer al-Momineen (peace be upon him) said,

“Surely, we Ahle Bait (peace be upon him) are given the knowledge of the time of deaths, calamities and genealogy. By Allah! If anyone from us (Ahle Bait a.s.) stands on a bridge, then this nation is presented to him, he will inform them of their names and their lineage.”
