اَبَانٍ الْاَحْمَرِ قَالَ قَالَ الصَّادِقُ ؑ يَا اَبَانُ كَيْفَ يُنْكِرُ النَّاسُ قَوْلَ اَمِيرِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ عَلَيْهِ السَّلَامُ لَمَّا قَالَ لَوْ شِئْتُ لَرَفَعْتُ رِجْلِي هَذِهِ فَضَرَبْتُ بِهَا صَدْرَ ابْنِ اَبِي سُفْيَانَ بِالشَّامِ فَنَكَسْتُهُ عَنْ سَرِيرِهِ وَ لَا يُنْكِرُونَ تَنَاوُلَ آصَفَ وَصِيِّ سُلَيْمَانَ عَرْشَ بِلْقِيسَ وَ اِتْيَانَهُ سُلَيْمَانَ بِهِ قَبْلَ اَنْ يَرْتَدَّ اِلَيْهِ طَرْفُهُ اَ لَيْسَ نَبِيُّنَا ص اَفْضَلَ الْاَنْبِيَاءِ وَ وَصِيُّهُ اَفْضَلَ الْاَوْصِيَاءِ اَ فَلَا جَعَلُوهُ كَوَصِيِّ سُلَيْمَانَ حَكَمَ اللهُ بَيْنَنَا وَ بَيْنَ مَنْ جَحَدَ حَقَّنَا وَ اَنْكَرَ فَضْلَنَا

Abaan al-Ahmar reports that Imam al-Sadeq (peace be on him) said,

“O Abaan! How can the people deny the saying of Ameer al-Momineen (peace be on him) when he (peace be on him) said, ‘If I raise this feet of mine and strike with it the chest of the son of Abu Sufyan in Syria, I will turn him upside down in his bed’ but they don’t deny the reaching of Asif, the successor of (Prophet) Sulaiman (peace be on him), the throne of Bilqees and bringing it to (Prophet) Sulaiman (peace be on him) before he could bat any eyelid? Is not our Prophet (peace be on him and his progeny) the most superior of the Prophets (peace be on him) and his successor the most superior of the successors? Did they not make him (peace be on him) even like the successor of (Prophet) Sulaiman (peace be on him)? May Allah judge between us and the one who denies our right and refutes our superiority!”

Notes:

1)    Ameer al-Momineen (peace be on him) had uttered these words during his apparent caliphate.

2)    The opponents in the time of Imam al-Sadeq (peace be on him) were denying this tradition, regarding it improbable.

3)    Ironically, the opponents have recorded innumerable extraordinary feats and miracles for various companions of the Holy Prophet (peace be on him and his progeny) and the so-called saints in their books. But when it comes to the miraculous powers of the Ahle Bait (peace be on him), they consider it incredible.
