عَنْ اَبِي بَصِيرٍ قَالَ قُلْتُ لِاَبِي جَعْفَرٍ ؑ اَنَا مَوْلَاكَ وَ مِنْ شِيعَتِكَ ضَعِيفٌ ضَرِيرٌ اضْمَنْ لِيَ الْجَنَّةَ قَالَ اَ وَ لَا اَعْطَيْتُكَ عَلَامَةَ الْاَئِمَّةِ قُلْتُ وَ مَا عَلَيْكَ اَنْ تَجْمَعَهَا لِي قَالَ وَ تُحِبُّ ذٰلِكَ قُلْتُ كَيْفَ لَا اُحِبُّ فَمَا زَادَ اَنْ مَسَحَ عَلَى بَصَرِي فَاَبْصَرْتُ جَمِيعَ مَا فِي السَّقِيفَةِ الَّتِي كَانَ فِيهَا جَالِسًا قَالَ يَا اَبَا مُحَمَّدٍ هٰذَا بَصَرُكَ فَانْظُرْ مَا تَرَى بِعَيْنِكَ قَالَ فَوَ اللهِ مَا اَبْصَرْتُ اِلَّا كَلْبًا وَ خِنْزِيرًا وَ قِرْدًا قُلْتُ مَا هٰذَا الْخَلْقُ الْمَمْسُوخُ قَالَ هٰذَا الَّذِي تَرَى هٰذَا السَّوَادُ الْاَعْظَمُ وَ لَوْ كُشِفَ الْغِطَاءُ لِلنَّاسِ مَا نَظَرَ الشِّيعَةُ اِلَى مَنْ خَالَفَهُمْ اِلَّا فِي هَذِهِ الصُّورَةِ ثُمَّ قَالَ يَا اَبَا مُحَمَّدٍ اِنْ اَحْبَبْتَ تَرَكْتُكَ عَلَى حَالِكَ هَكَذَا وَ حِسَابُكَ عَلَى اللهِ وَ اِنْ اَحْبَبْتَ ضَمِنْتُ لَكَ عَلَى اللهِ الْجَنَّةَ وَ رَدَدْتُكَ عَلَى حَالِكَ الْاَوَّلِ قُلْتُ لَا حَاجَةَ لِي اِلَى النَّظَرِ اِلَى هٰذَا الْخَلْقِ الْمَنْكُوسِ رُدَّنِي فَمَا لِلْجَنَّةِ عِوَضٌ فَمَسَحَ يَدَهُ عَلَى عَيْنَيَّ فَرَجَعْتُ كَمَا كُنْتُ

Abu Baseer reports, “I said to Imam Abu Ja’far (al-Baqer a.s.), ‘I am your slave and from Shiites, weak and blind. So, guarantee paradise for me’.

He (peace be on him) asked, ‘Should I not give you a sign of the Imams?’

I replied, ‘No harm for you if you compile these for me.’

He (peace be on him) inquired, ‘Are you interested in the same?’

I said, ‘Why will I not be interested?’

He (peace be on him) touched his fingers on my eyes when I saw all that was in Saqifah, those who were sitting in it. Then, he (peace be on him) asked, ‘O Aba Muhammad! This is your vision. See what you can with your eyes.’

Abu Baseer says, ‘By Allah! I did not see except dogs, pigs and monkeys. I asked, ‘What are these transformed creatures?’

He (peace be on him) replied, ‘What you are seeing is the majority (of Muslims). If the veil is raised for the people, the Shiites will not look at their opponents except in these forms. O Aba Muhammad! If you so wish I will leave you at this condition and your accounting is with Allah. And if you so desire, I will guarantee you Paradise from Allah and return to your original condition.’

I said, ‘I don’t need to look at these inverted creatures. Return me (to my original condition) as there is no substitute for Paradise.

Again, he (peace be on him) touched his fingers on my eyes and I returned to my original condition.”
