Pearl of Wisdom

A group of people from Isfahan among whom were Abu al-'Abbas Ahmad b. al-Nar and Imam 'Ali b. Muhammad al-Hadi (AS) Abu Ja'far Muhammad b. 'Alawiyya, narrated, 'There was a man named 'Abd al-Rahman in Isfahan who was a shi'a. He was asked, 'Why have you accepted the Imama of 'Ali al-Naqi instead of anyone else from among the people of the time?' So he replied, 'I witnessed that which obligated me to believing such. I was a poor man but outspoken and daring. So the people of Isfahan exiled me and a few others. We came to Mutawakkil to ask for justice. We were at Mutawakkil's gate when the command came to bring 'Ali b. Muhammad b. al-Rida. I asked those present there who this man was that had been commanded to be brought there. Someone replied, 'He is an 'Alawi whom the Rafida believe to be their Imam.' He then said, Mutawakkil may have summoned him in order to kill him.' I said, 'I will not move from here until I see who this person is .' [He continued]: 'He came riding on a horse and verily people were standing in a line on the right and left of his path watching him. When I saw him, I stopped and looked at him. Love for him filled my heart. I prayed for him in my heart for Allah to repel from him the evil of Mutawakkil. He moved through the crowd, his sight fixed on the reins of his horse, not looking around. And I was constantly supplicating for him. When he reached me, he turned his face towards me and said, may Allah accept your supplication, lengthen your life, and increase your wealth and your children.' After that, we returned to Isfahan. Allah opened phases of wealth upon me, so much so that I have to lock away in my house more than a million dirhams and this is apart from the wealth that is outside my house. I have been blessed with ten sons and I have reached an age in excess of seventy years. This is the reason for my faith in the Imama of this man who knew what was in my heart and Allah granted his prayers for me.'
