Ibne Abbas narrates – I would have given the world to have had the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.a.) make the statement he made about Ali b. Abi Talib about me.
So people asked Ibn Abbas, What was the statement?
I replied, The Prophet informed Ali b. Abi Talib, You are from me and I am from you; your progeny is from us and we are from them; your Shias are from us and we are from them, and your Shias will enter Paradise five hundred years before the others. Ghaayah al-Maraam p 459
