Imam’s (as) at the time of our death


 

We have quite a few narration which say that the believer seems the Imam’s (as) on his death bed.

 
الحسين بن سعيد في كتاب الزهد ‏عن حماد بن عيسى، عن الحسين بن مختار، عن ابي بصير، عن ابي عبد الله ع قال: ان الميت إذا مات، رأى رسول الله (ص) وعليا ع بحضرته
 
Al-Husain bin Sa’eed in ‘Book of Zohad’ narrates from Hammad bin Isa, from Al-Husain bin Mukhtar, from Abi Baseer from Abi Abdillah (as),

Abi Abdillah (as) says, “Verily the dead when he dies sees the Prophet (saww) and Ali (as) in his presence”.

محمد بن يحيى، عن أحمد بن محمد بن عيسى، عن ابن فضال، عن يونس بن يعقوب، عن سعيد بن يسار أنه حضر أحد ابني سابور وكان لهما فضل وورع و إخبات فمرض أحدهما وما أحسبه إلا زكريا بن سابور قال: فحضرته عند موته فبسط يده ثم قال: ابيضت يدي ياعلي، قال: فدخلت على أبي عبدالله (عليه السلام) و عنده محمد بن مسلم قال: فلما قمت من عنده ظننت أن محمدا يخبره بخبر الرجل فأتبعني برسول فرجعت إليه فقال: أخبرني عن هذا الرجل الذي حضرته عند الموت أي شئ سمعته يقول؟ قال: قلت بسط يده ثم قال: ابيضت يدي ياعلي، فقال أبوعبدالله (عليه السلام): والله رآه، والله رآه، والله رآه.

Narrated by Muhammad bin Yahya, from Ahmad bin Muhammad bin Isa, from Ibn Fazzal, from Younus bin Yaqob, from Saeed bin Yasir:

That I was there when one of the sons of Ibn Saaboor, who was a pious and great man, was ill, and i think his name was Zakariya bin Saabor, so at the time of his death, he extended his hand, and said, “You have enlightened my hand O Ali!”

The Narrator said, when I met Abi Abdillah (as) and Muhammad bin Muslim was also with him.
He (narrator) said: when I stood up from him, I believe mohammad bin muslim had told him about that man. So his Messenger came and I went with him to him.
Imam (as) said, “Tell me about this man with whom you were at time of his death, what did you hear? He said: I said he extended his arm and said that you have enlightened my hand O Ali.
So Abi Abdillah (as) said: By God! He saw Him,  By God! He saw Him , By God! He saw Him.
