It was narrated to us by ʿAlī bin Aḥmed bin ʿAbd Allāh bin Aḥmed bin Abī ʿAbd Allāh al-Barqi, who said – it was narrated to us by my father, from Aḥmed bin Abī ʿAbd Allāh, from Abī Ayūb Sulaymān bin Maqabil al-Madīni, from Moḥammed bin Abī ʿUmayr, from Hishām bin Sālim:

From al-Ṣādiq Jaʿfar bin Moḥammed عليهم السلام, who said: Whoever affiliates with one who is a carper to us, or praises one who is abhorrent to us, or makes ties with one who is cut off from us, or cuts off ties with one who has made ties with us, or befriends one who is an enemy to us, or has enmity with one who is friends with us – indeed he has disbelieved in the One who brought down the seven repeated verses1 and the mighty Qur’ān.

1. The seven repeated verses (al-Sabʿ al-Mathāni) is usually considered in reference to al-Fātiḥa. Al-Mathāni is more literally translated as twice. Scholars have stated that al-Fātiḥa is given this title because it is repeated twice in every obligatory prayers. The other opinion is that it was revealed twice, once in Mekka and once in Medina.

حدثنا علي بن أحمد بن عبد الله بن أحمد بن أبي عبد الله البرقي ، قال : حدثنا أبي ، عن أحمد بن أبي عبد الله ، عن أبي أيوب سليمان بن مقبل المديني ، عن محمد بن أبي عمير ، عن هشام بن سالم ، عن الصادق جعفر بن محمد ( عليهم السلام ) ، قال : من جالس لنا عائبا ، أو مدح لنا قاليا ، أو واصل لنا قاطعا ، أو قطع لنا واصلا ، أو والى لنا عدوا ، أو عادى لنا وليا فقد كفر بالذي أنزل السبع المثاني والقرآن العظيم .
