(continued) Abbas ibn Abdul Muttalib narrates that when Sayyedah Fatemah binte Asad ibn Hashim (peace be upon her), the respected mother of Ameerul Momineen (peace be upon him) came out of the Holy Kaabah after three days with Imam Ali (peace be upon him) on her hands, she addressed the people.

Then when he (Ameerul Momineen (peace be upon him)) saw (his father) Abu Talib (peace be upon him), he got happy and Imam Ali (peace be upon him) said to him, “Peace be upon you O Father and the Mercy of Allah and His Blessings”.

Then Holy Prophet (peace be upon him and his holy progeny) entered, then when he (peace be upon him and his holy progeny) entered, Ameerul Momineen (peace be upon him) shook himself and had a smile on his face and said: “Peace be upon you O Prophet of Allah and His Mercy and His Blessings.”

Then he cleared his throat by the permission of Allah and said,

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ- قَدْ أَفْلَحَ الْمُؤْمِنُونَ- الَّذِينَ هُمْ فِي صَلاتِهِمْ خاشِعُونَ

“In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful, Successful indeed are the believers, those who are humble in their prayers” (Surah Mominoon 23:1-2) till the end of the verse.

Then Holy Prophet (peace be upon him and his holy progeny) said, Indeed they are successful because of you.

أُولئِكَ هُمُ الْوارِثُونَ- الَّذِينَ يَرِثُونَ الْفِرْدَوْسَ هُمْ فِيها خالِدُونَ

Then he (peace be upon him) recited the remaining verses till His words, “Surely they are the inheritors, those who shall inherit the Garden of Paradise and shall abide in it eternally” (Surah Mominoon 23:10-11).

Then Holy Prophet (peace be upon him and his holy progeny) said, I swear by Allah then that you are their Commander, your Command them from your knowledge then they obey, And I swear by Allah then you are their Proof and through you they shall be guided.
