Ibn Hajar al-Makki al-Haythami mentions in his al-Sawaaeq that al-Baarezi mentioned from al-Mansoor – I saw a man in Syria whose face had become that of a pig. When he asked him about it, he replied – I used to curse Ali (b. Abi Talib) every day a thousand times and on Friday 4,000 times along with his (a.s.) children. I saw the Prophet (s.a.w.a.) in a dream – and then goes on to narrate a very lengthy dream from which was as follows – Imam Hasan (b. Ali) (a.s.) complained to him (s.a.w.a.) due to which he (s.a.w.a.) cursed that man, then spat on that person’s face due to which it became that of a pig and a sign for the people.
