وَ قَالَ ع: لَوْ ضَرَبْتُ‏ خَيْشُومَ‏ الْمُؤْمِنِ‏ بِسَيْفِي‏ هَذَا عَلَى‏ اَنْ‏ يُبْغِضَنِي‏ مَا اَبْغَضَنِي‏ وَ لَوْ صَبَبْتُ الدُّنْيَا بِجَمَّاتِهَا عَلَى الْمُنَافِقِ عَلَى اَنْ يُحِبَّنِي مَا اَحَبَّنِي وَ ذَلِكَ اَنَّهُ قُضِيَ فَانْقَضَى عَلَى لِسَانِ النَّبِيِّ الْأُمِّيِّ ص اَنَّهُ قَالَ يَا عَلِيُّ لَا يُبْغِضُكَ مُؤْمِنٌ وَ لَا يُحِبُّكَ مُنَافِقٌ‏

Ameerul Momineen Ali Ibn Abi Talib (peace be upon him) said,

“By Allah! If I strike the nose of a believer with my sword so that he may hate me, he will not hate me and if I fill the world with all its embellishments in the lap of a disbeliever, he will not love me. For, it has already been decreed through the tongue of the Ummi Prophet (peace be upon him and his holy progeny), ‘O Ali! A believer will not hate you and a hypocrite will never love you’.”
