will be called soon, and I will respond. So I leave behind me two

He continued: "O Ali! (On the day of Judgment) you and your Shia will come
toward Allah well-pleased and well-pleasing, and your enemies will come
angry with their head forced up. Ali said: "Who are my enemies?" The
Prophet (PBUH&HF) replied: "He who disassociates himself from you and
curses you. And glad tiding to those who reach first under the shadow of

Prophet did not reply till I repeated my question thrice. At that time,
Salman Al-Farisi was with us. So Allah's Apostle put his hand on Salman,
saying, "If Faith were at (the
