و بهذا الإسناد، عن علي بن الحسن، عن جعفر الأموي، عن العباس ابن عبد الله، عن سعد بن طريف، عن الأصبغ بن نباتة، عن أبي مريم، عن سلمان، قال كنا جلوسا عند النبي )صلى الله عليه و آله( إذ أقبل علي بن أبي طالب )عليه السلام(، فناوله النبي )صلى الله عليه و آله( حصاة، فما استقرت الحصاة في كف علي )عليه السلام( حتى نطقت، و هي تقول لا إله إلا الله، محمد رسول الله، رضيت بالله ربا، و بمحمد نبيا، و بعلي بن أبي طالب وليا ثم قال النبي )صلى الله عليه و آله( من أصبح منكم راضيا بالله و بولاية علي بن أبي طالب، فقد أمن خوف الله و عقابه


The Knowledgeable scholar Abu Ali Hasan bin Abi Jafar Al-Toosi narrated from his blessed father Abu Jafar Muhammad bin Hasan Al-Toosi, from Abu Muhammad Hasan bin Muhammad bin Yahya Al-Fahham, from Omar bin Yahya, from Abu Bakr Muhammad bin Sulaimaan bin Aasim, from Abu Bakr Ahmad bin Muhammad Al-Abdi, from Ali bin Hasan bin Jafar Al-Amawy, from Abbas bin Ubaidullah, from Saad bin Tareef, from Asbagh bin Nobatah from Abi Maryam from Salman who said:

We were sitting with Messenger of Allah (swt) when Ali bin Abi Taleb (as) entered. The Prophet (saww) gave Ali (as) a small stone.

When Ali (as) held the stone in his palm, the stone said, "There is no god but Allah (swt) and Muhammad (saww) is the Messenger of Allah (swt). I am pleased with Allah (swt) as Lord, with Muhammas as a Prophet, and with Ali as a Wali."

Then the Prophet (saww) said, "Those of you who are pleased with Allah as your Lord and with the Wilayat of Ali bin Abi Taleb are safe from Allah's punishment."

Sheikh Toosi Narrates from his chain of narrators from Ibn Abbas who said:

The Prophet (saww) gave a ring to Imam Ali (as) and said, "O Ali, take this ring to the inscriber, to inscribe on it "Muhammad son of Abdullah".

Amir Al-Momineen took the ring and gave it to the inscriber and told him to inscribe on it "Muhammad son of Abdullah". The inscriber inscribed on it and and his hand made a mistake and inscribed on the stone "Muhammad the Messenger of Allah".

Amir Al-Momineen went to him (inscriber) and said, "What did u do to the stone?", He (the inscriber) said, "it is this".

Amir Al-Momineen took it and saw the inscription on it and said, "I did not command (ask) you for this". He (the inscriber) said, "You say the truth. but my hands made a mistake.

Then he [Imam Ali (as)] brought the stone to the Messenger of Allah (saww) and said, "O Messenger of Allah (saww), the inscriber did not inscribe what I had ordered him to, He (the inscriber) says that his hands made a mistake.

The Prophet (saww) took the stone and looked towards it and said, "O Ali (as), I am Muhammad son of Abdullah and I am Muhammad the Messenger of Allah" and it concluded with it.

When in the morning the Prophet (saww) looked towards the stone, inscribed beneath the stone was the inscription "Ali is the Wali of Allah" and the Prophet (saww) was amazed with this. Then Jibraeel came and the Prophet (saww) said, "O Jibraeel this was this and this." 

Jibraeel said, "O Muhammad, you wrote what you wanted to and we wrote what we wanted to.
