عَلِيُّ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ بَعْضِ أَصْحَابِنَا عَنِ ابْنِ مَحْبُوبٍ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ الْفُضَيْلِ عَنْ أَبِي الْحَسَنِ الْمَاضِي ع قَال‏

 أَ لَا تَرَى أَنَّ اللَّهَ يَقُولُ وَ ما ظَلَمُونا وَ لكِنْ كانُوا أَنْفُسَهُمْ يَظْلِمُونَ (البقرة -: 57 -) قَالَ إِنَّ اللَّهَ أَعَزُّ وَ أَمْنَعُ مِنْ أَنْ يَظْلِمَ أَوْ يَنْسُبَ نَفْسَهُ إِلَى ظُلْمٍ وَ لَكِنَّ اللَّهَ خَلَطَنَا بِنَفْسِهِ فَجَعَلَ ظُلْمَنَا ظُلْمَهُ وَ وَلَايَتَنَا وَلَايَتَهُ ثُمَّ أَنْزَلَ بِذَلِكَ قُرْآناً عَلَى نَبِيِّهِ فَقَالَ وَ ما ظَلَمْناهُمْ وَ لكِنْ كانُوا أَنْفُسَهُمْ يَظْلِمُونَ (النحل -: 118 -) قُلْتُ هَذَا تَنْزِيلٌ قَالَ نَعَم‏


Ali bin Muhammad, from some companions, from Ibn Mahboob, from Muhammad bin Al-Fuzail, from Abi Al-Hasan [Moosa Kazim] (as):

(part of a lengthy narration)

"Have  you not seen that Allah (swt) says, "And they did not oppress Us, but they oppressed their own self's" [2:57].

Imam (as) said, "Verily Allah (swt) is far more gracious that He does oppression (injustice) or that he ascribes oppression (injustice) to Himself. But Allah has mixed Us with His Self. So he has called any oppression (injustice) on Us as oppression on Him. And Our Wilayah is His Wilayah. Regarding that he send down in the Quran upon his Prophet (saww), "We did not do any wrong to them but they wronged themselves." [16:118]
