حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو الْيَمَانِ قَالَ: أَخْبَرَنَا شُعَيْبٌ عَنِ الزُّهْرِيِّ قَالَ: أَخْبَرَنِي عَلِيُّ بْنُ حُسَيْنٍ أَنَّ حُسَيْنَ بْنَ عَلِيٍّ أَخْبَرَهُ أَنَّ عَلِيَّ بْنَ أَبِي طَالِبٍ أَخْبَرَهُ أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ طَرَقَهُ وَفَاطِمَةَ بِنْتَ النَّبِيِّ- عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَمُ- لَيْلَةً فَقَالَ: ((أَلاَ تُصَلِّيَانِ)). فَقُلْتُ يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ، أَنْفُسُنَا بِيَدِ اللَّهِ، فَإِذَا شَاءَ أَنْ يَبْعَثَنَا بَعَثَنَا. فَانْصَرَفَ حِينَ قُلْنَا ذَلِكَ وَلَمْ يَرْجِعْ إِلَيَّ شَيْئًا. ثُمَّ سَمِعْتُهُ وَهْوَ مُوَلٍّ يَضْرِبُ فَخِذَهُ وَهْوَ يَقُولُ: (({وَكَانَ الإِنْسَانُ أَكْثَرَ شَيْءٍ جَدَلاً})).

We were told by Abu al-Yamaan, he said:  we were informed from Az-zahri, he said:  we were informed by ‘Ali bn. Husayn that Husayn bn. Ali informed him that ‘Ali bn. Abi Talib told him that the messenger of Allah blessings and peace be upon him knocked on (the door with) him and Fatima, the daughter of the prophet–upon him peace–one night and he said:  “Won’t you stand for worship”.  So I said to him O messenger of Allah, our souls are by the hand of Allah, so if he wishes to send us forth, he’ll send us forth.”  So he left right then when we said that and did not come back to me for anything.  Then I heard him dragging his feet, slapping his thigh saying:  “‘And well was the human being, more than anything, arguing.'” (18:54)
