عَنْ اَنَسِ بْنِ مَالِكٍ قَالَ رَجَعْنَا مَعَ رَسُولِ اللهِ ﷺ قَلِقِينَ مِنْ تَبُوكَ فَقَالَ لِي فِي بَعْضِ الطَّرِيقِ اَلْقُوا لِيَ الْاَحْلَاسَ وَ الْاَقْتَابَ فَفَعَلُوا فَصَعِدَ رَسُولُ اللهِ ﷺ فَخَطَبَ فَحَمِدَ اللهَ وَ اَثْنَى عَلَيْهِ بِمَا هُوَ اَهْلُهٗ ثُمَّ قَالَ مَعَاشِرَ النَّاسِ مَا لِي اِذَا ذُكِرَ آلُ اِبْرَاهِيمَ ؑ تَهَلَّلَتْ وُجُوهُكُمْ وَ اِذَا ذُكِرَ آلُ مُحَمَّدٍ كَاَنَّمَا يُفْقَاُ فِي وُجُوهِكُمْ حَبُّ الرُّمَّانِ فَوَ الَّذِي بَعَثَنِي بِالْحَقِّ نَبِيًّا لَوْ جَاءَ اَحَدُكُمْ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ بِاَعْمَالٍ كَاَمْثَالِ الْجِبَالِ وَ لَمْ يَجِئْ بِوَلَايَةِ عَلِيِّ بْنِ اَبِي طَالِبٍ عَلَيْهِمَا السَّلَامُ لَاَكَبَّهُ اللهُ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ فِي النَّارِ

Anas Ibn Maalik recounts, “When we were returning from (the expedition of) Tabuk, the Messenger of Allah (peace be on him and his progeny) told me, ‘Bring for me saddle-blankets and camel-humps’. They duly obliged. The Messenger of Allah (peace be on him and his progeny) went atop this pulpit and addressed (the people). He (peace be on him and his progeny) praised Allah and glorified Him as is worthy of Him. Thereafter, he (peace be on him and his progeny) said,

‘O people! Why is it that when the progeny of (Prophet) Ibraheem (peace be on him) is praised, your faces lit up with joy. But when the progeny of Muhammad (peace be on him and his progeny) are mentioned, as if the seeds of pomegranate are rubbed into your faces (due to which your faces become red with grief). I swear by the One Who sent me as a Prophet with truth! If anyone of you comes on the Day of Judgment with mountain-like deeds but did not bring along the Mastership of Ali Ibn Abi Talib (peace be on them both), certainly Allah – Mighty and Wise be He – will throw him on his face in hell-fire’.”
