shah wali ullah wrote in his book izala-tul-khulafa

اخرج الحاكم والترمذى نحوه عن عمران بن حصين قال بَعث رسول الله صلي الله وعليه وسلم سريةً واستعمل عليهم علي بن ابي طالب رضي الله عنه فمضي عليٌ في السرية فاصاب جاريةً فانكروا ذلك عليه فتعاقدا اربعةٌ من اصحاب رسول الله صلي الله عليه وسلم اذا لقينا النبي صلي الله عليه وسلم اخبرناه بما صنع عليٌ …… فاقبل عليه رسول الله صلي الله عليه وسلم والغضب في وجهه فقال: ما تريدون من علي ان علياً مني وانا منه وانا وليُّ كل مؤمن

so, this narration is telling us a narration from HAKIM AND TIRMIDHI, where imran bin hasen told us that when hazrat ali asws took a slave girl, and people talked to prophet asws about that, he said that

“what do you wish from me about ali; ali is from me and i am from him and I AM wali of all momin”

[izala-tul-khulafa, vol 4, page 7]

however, the narration of tirmidhi actually mentions the true words of holy prophet and these were

ما تريدون من علي إن عليا مني وأنا منه وهو ولي كل مؤمن بعدي


“what do you wish from me about ali; ali is from me and i am from him and HE IS wali of all momin”

[jami tirmidhi, vol 6, page 78]
