قَالَ رَسُولُ اللهِ ﷺ عَلِيُّ بْنُ اَبِي طَالِبٍ خَلِيفَةُ اللهِ وَ خَلِيفَتِي وَ حُجَّةُ اللهِ وَ حُجَّتِي وَ بَابُ اللهِ وَ بَابِي وَ صَفِيُّ اللهِ وَ صَفِيِّي وَ حَبِيبُ اللهِ وَ حَبِيبِي وَ خَلِيلُ اللهِ وَ خَلِيلِي وَ سَيْفُ اللهِ وَ سَيْفِي وَ هُوَ اَخِي وَ صَاحِبِي وَ وَزِيرِي وَ وَصِيِّي مُحِبُّهُ مُحِبِّي وَ مُبْغِضُهُ مُبْغِضِي وَ وَلِيُّهُ وَلِيِّي وَ عَدُوُّهُ عَدُوِّي وَ زَوْجَتُهُ ابْنَتِي وَ وُلْدُهُ وُلْدِي وَ حِزْبُهُ حِزْبِي وَ قَوْلُهُ قَوْلِي وَ اَمْرُهُ اَمْرِي وَ هُوَ سَيِّدُ الْوَصِيِّينَ وَ خَيْرُ اُمَّتِي 

The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him and his holy progeny) declared,

“Ali ibn Abi Talib (peace be upon him) is Allah’s Caliph and my caliph, Allah’s proof and my proof, Allah’s door and my door, Allah’s chosen one and my chosen one, Allah’s beloved and my beloved, Allah’s friend and my friend, Allah’s sword and my sword; he is my brother, my companion, my vizier and my successor. One who loves him loves me, one who bears malice against him bears malice against me, one who accepts his mastership accepts my mastership, his enemy is my enemy, his wife is my daughter, his children (from my daughter Fatemah) are my children, his party is my party, his word is my word, his affair is my affair, he is the chief of the successors and the best of my nation.”
