Maʿāni al-Akhbār: And from him, who said – my father narrated to us, who said – it was narrated to us by ‘Alī bin Ibrahim bin Hishām, from his father, from Moḥammed bin Sinān, from al-Muffadhil bin ʿUmar, who said – it was narrated to us by Thābit al-Thumāli:

From The Master of Worshippers, ʿAlī bin al-Ḥussain صلى الله عليهما, who said: There is not between Allāh and between His proofs a veil, nor before Allāh and His proofs a veil. We are the doors of Allāh, and we are the straight path, and we are the depositors of his knowledge, and we are the interpreters of His revelation, and we are the pillars of His Oneness, and we are the location of His secrets.

وعنه ، قال : حدثنا أبي ، قال : حدثنا علي بن إبراهيم بن هاشم ، عن أبيه ، عن محمد بن سنان ، عن المفضل بن عمر ، قال : حدثني ثابت الثمالي ، عن سيد العابدين علي بن الحسين ( صلى الله عليهما ) [ قال ] : « ليس بين الله وبين حجته حجاب ، ولا لله دون حجته ستر ، نحن أبواب الله ، ونحن الصراط المستقيم ، ونحن عيبة علمه ، ونحن تراجمة وحيه ، ونحن أركان توحيده ، ونحن موضع سره » .
