جَابِرِ بْنِ عَبْدِ اللهِ الْاَنْصَارِيِّ اَنَّهٗ قَالَ كَانَ رَسُولُ اللهِ ﷺ جَالِسًا فِي الْمَسْجِدِ اِذَا اَقْبَلَ عَلِيٌّ ؑ وَ الْحَسَنُ عَنْ يَمِينِهِ وَ الْحُسَيْنُ عَنْ شِمَالِهِ فَقَامَ النَّبِيُّ ﷺ وَ قَبَّلَ عَلِيًّا وَ اَلْزَمَهُ اِلَى صَدْرِهِ وَ قَبَّلَ الْحَسَنَ وَ اَجْلَسَهُ اِلَى فَخِذِهِ الْاَيْمَنِ وَ قَبَّلَ الْحُسَيْنَ وَ اَجْلَسَهُ اِلَى فَخِذِهِ الْاَيْسَرِ ثُمَّ جَعَلَ يُقَبِّلُهُمَا وَ يَرْشِفُ شَفَتَيْهِمَا وَ يَقُولُ بِاَبِي اَبُوكُمَا وَ بِاَبِي اُمُّكُمَا ثُمَّ قَالَ اَيُّهَا النَّاسُ اِنَّ اللهَ سُبْحَانَهٗ وَ تَعَالٰى بَاهَى بِهِمَا وَ بِاَبِيهِمَا وَ بِاُمِّهِمَا وَ بِالْاَبْرَارِ مِنْ وُلْدِهِمَا الْمَلَائِكَةَ جَمِيعًا ثُمَّ قَالَ اَللّٰهُمَّ اِنِّي اُحِبُّهُمْ وَ اُحِبُّ مَنْ يُحِبُّهُمْ اَللّٰهُمَّ مَنْ اَطَاعَنِي فِيهِمْ وَ حَفِظَ وَصِيَّتِي فَارْحَمْهُ بِرَحْمَتِكَ يَا اَرْحَمَ الرَّاحِمِينَ فَاِنَّهُمْ اَهْلِي وَ الْقَوَّامُونَ بِدِيْنِيْ وَ الْمُحْيُونَ لِسُنَّتِي وَ التَّالُونَ لِكِتَابِ رَبِّي فَطَاعَتُهُمْ طَاعَتِي وَ مَعْصِيَتُهُمْ مَعْصِيَتِي

Jaabir Ibn Abdillah al-Ansari (may Allah be satisfied with him) reports, “The Messenger of Allah (peace be on him and his progeny) was sitting in the mosque when Ali (peace be on him) entered with al-Hasan (peace be on him) on his right and al-Husain (peace be on him) on his left. The Messenger of Allah (peace be on him and his progeny) stood up, kissed Ali (peace be on him) and hugged him tightly to his chest. Then, he (peace be on him and his progeny) kissed al-Hasan (peace be on him) and made him sit on his right lap. After that, he (peace be on him and his progeny) kissed al-Husain (peace be on him) and made him sit on his left lap. Thereafter, he (peace be on him and his progeny) started kissing the two and pecking their lips while saying,

‘May my father be held ransom for your father and may my mother be held ransom for your mother!’

Then, he (peace be on him and his progeny) said,

‘O people! Surely Allah – Purified and High be He – and all the angels take pride in both of them (al-Hasan and al-Husain), their father, their mother and the righteous ones from their offspring.’

Next, he (peace be on him and his progeny) prayed,

‘O Allah! Surely, I love them and love the one who loves them. O Allah! Whoever obeys me concerning them and protects my will, You have mercy on him, for the sake of Your mercy, O the Most Merciful of all merciful ones. For, they are my family, who establish my religion, enliven my tradition and reciters of the Book of my Lord. Hence, to obey them is to obey me and to disobey them is to disobey me.’
