Tags: Excellence of Ameerul Momineen (a.s.)
Anas b. Malik The Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.a.) asked me to saddle his mule, so I did. Then the Prophet (s.a.w.a.) rode and I followed him. When we arrived at the house of Ameerul Momineen (a.s.), the Prophet (s.a.w.a.) asked me to saddle Alis mule, so I did. The Prophet (s.a.w.a.) and Ali (a.s.) rode together and I was following them until they came to a green and beautiful land. Then a white cloud covered them so I went closer and I heard a loud voice saying:
ASSALAAMU ALAIKUMA WA RAHMATULLAH WA BARAKATOHU. (Peace be upon both of you)
They answered the salutation. Then Jibraeel descended, and then I could no longer see them. Then when Jibraeel returned, I saw the Prophet (s.a.w.a.) call Ali (a.s.).
The Prophet (s.a.w.a.) gave Ali (a.s.) an apple that had the following statement written on it with the power of Allah, This is a present from the Dominant Lord to his Wali, Ali b. Abi Talib.
