Abul Qasim Ja'far ibn Muhammad ibn Qawlawayh, may Allah bless him with mercy, reported to me from Al-Husayn ibn Muhammad ibn Amir, from Mualla ibn Muhamamd al-Basri, from Muhammad ibn Jamhur al-Ammi, who reported from Abu ‘Ali al-Hasan ibn Mahbub, who heard from Abu Muhammad al-Wabishi, reporting from Abu al-Ward who said:
I heard Abu Ja'far Muhammad ibn ‘Ali al-Baqir, peace be upon him, say: "When the Day of Resurrection will dawn, Allah will gather all people together on one plane, naked and barefooted, and they will be ranged on the road to the gathering place, till they will sweat profusely and their breathing will become difficult. They will be there for as long as Allah wills, and that is what Allah says in Qur'an:
'... and you shall hear nothing but whispers.' (20:108)"
He said: Then an announcer will announce from the Throne: "Where is the Makkan Prophet?" (He said), the people will say: "You have caused all to hear, now name him." It will be announced: "Where is the Prophet of mercy, Muhammad, son of Abdullah?"
Then the messenger of Allah, peace be upon him and his progeny, will rise and proceed before the people till he reaches the Pool, its length equal to the distance between Ayla and Sana; and then your master (i.e. ‘Ali) will be called and he will proceed in front of the people and stand with him (i.e the Prophet). Then people will be summoned to pass by.
Abu Ja'far, peace be upon him said: "Among them on that Day, some will arrive (to stay) and some will be driven away. When the Prophet, peace be upon him and his progeny, will see that those sent away are from those who love us the Ahlul Bayt, he will weep and say: "O Lord, these are partisans of ‘Ali, O Lord, these are partisans of ‘Ali!" He said: Allah will send an angel who will say: "O Muhammad! What makes you weep?"
He will say: "Why should I not weep for the fate of those who followed my brother ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib. I see they are being sent off with the inmates of hell, and are prevented form being at my Pool?" He said: Then Allah will say: "O Muhammad, I give them away to you, and pardon them their sins for your sake, and I will unite them with those who loved your progeny; I will keep them in your group, and station them at your Pool, and accept your intercession for them. This is how I have honoured you."
Then Abu Ja'far Muhammad ibn ‘Ali ibn al-Husayn said: There will be several men and women weeping on that Day, when they witness this, exclaiming: "O Muhammad, (help us). So no one who is our partisan and loves us will remain except that he will be in our party and with us, and will arrive at our Pool."
