OPINION OF IMAM ALI (asws) REGARDING CALIPHATE OF SHEIKHAIN
.
“On the day on which the (Caliphate) council was set up, I was in the house in which the six-member council held a gathering. I heard Ali (MGB) say,
.
‘The people established Abu Bakr as the Caliph while by God it was my right to be in charge of the affairs and I was more deserving for that position than he was. Moreover, Abu Bakr put Umar in charge of the Caliph while by God it was my right to be in charge of the affairs and I was more deserving for that position than Umar was. Now Umar has placed me as the sixth member of a six-member council without recognizing my nobility over them. If needed, I can bring arguments for them which the Arabs, the non-Arabs, the ones who have pledged, and the atheists cannot deny and I can change everything around with them.’

You have made a covenant with god to honor one of three proposals presented to you by anyone.’ Amr said, ‘Go ahead and propose!’ I said, ‘Bear witness that there is no god but God, Muhammad is God’s Prophet and confess to what he has brought to us from God.’ Amr said, ‘Present your second proposal.’ I said, ‘Return to your own house.’ Amr said, ‘By God, the women of Quraysh are going to say that I was scared and ran away from the battlefield.’ Then I said, ‘Get off your horse and let’s fight.’ He accepted this proposal and got off his horse.

The Prophet (MGB) told them, ‘Put it down.’ They put the coffin on the ground. The Prophet (MGB) said, ‘Open it up.’ They opened it up. There was a black slave in the coffin who had iron chains on his neck. God’s Prophet (MGB) asked, ‘Who is this?’ They answered, ‘He is a wicked and corrupt slave of the Riyaheen who has fled. We have been ordered to bury him with these chains on his neck as you can see.’ I looked at him and said, ‘O Prophet of God (MGB)! Whenever he saw me he said, ‘I swear by God that I love you.

My Lord granted to me everything which I asked for. I asked God to grant you whatever I asked Him to grant me.’ Then I said, ‘Praise be to God.’’
.
They replied, ‘By God; no.’
.
HIS JUDGEMENTS WERE LIKED BY PROPHET
.
Then Ali (MGB) said, ‘I swear to you by God! Do you know that after God’s Prophet (MGB) dispatched Khalid ibn al-Walid to the Jadhimah clan and he did to them what he did, God’s Prophet (MGB) climbed up the pulpit and said the following thrice, ‘O my Lord! I am disgusted with what Khalid ibn al-Walid did.’ Then he (MGB) said, ‘O Ali! You go.’ Then I went and gave
them compensation, and asked them by God to tell me if there was anything else to be compensated for? They said, ‘Yes. Since you asked us by God to tell you, the compensation for the dishes for our dogs and the knee-caps for our camels is still left.’ Then I gave them compensation for that, too. I also gave them a lot of gold which I had and told them, ‘This is expiation from God’s Prophet (MGB) to compensate for whatever you know or do not know and for any fears that your women and children may have experienced.’ Then I returned to God’s Prophet (MGB) and informed him (MGB) of what I had done. The Prophet (MGB) said, ‘I swear by God that I am more pleased of what you have done than red-haired camels. ’’
.
They replied, ‘By God. Yes.’
.
PROPHET PRAYED THAT HIS FOLLOWERS BE FORGIVEN
.
Then Ali (MGB) said, ‘I swear to you by God! Did you hear God’s Prophet (MGB) say, ‘O Ali! They had my nation march in front of me last night. Once those who carry the flags passed by me, I prayed to God to forgive you and your followers.’’
.
They replied, ‘By God. Yes.’
.
HE OBEYED PROPHET WHEN ABU BAKAR AND UMAR DISOBEYED
.
Then Ali (MGB) said, ‘I swear to you by God! Did you hear God’s Prophet (MGB) say, ‘O Abu Bakr! Go and chop off the neck of the person who is in such and such place.’ Then when Abu Bakr returned, the Prophet (MGB) asked him, ‘Did you kill him?’ Abu Bakr replied, ‘No. I found him praying.’ Then the Prophet (MGB) said, ‘O Umar! Go and kill him.’ Then when Umar returned the Prophet (MGB) asked him, ‘Did you kill him?’ Umar replied, ‘No. I found him praying.’ Then the Prophet (MGB) said, ‘I ordered you to kill him and you come back telling me that you found him praying?’
Then the Prophet (MGB) said, ‘O Ali! Go and kill him.’ Once I started to go, the Prophet (MGB) told me, ‘Kill him if you find him there.’ Once I returned I said, O Prophet of God (MGB)! I did not find anyone there.’ Then the Prophet (MGB) said, ‘Would you have killed him if you found him there?’’ They replied, ‘By God. Yes.’
Then Ali (MGB) said, ‘I swear to you by God! Is there anyone amongst you about whom the Prophet (MGB) said, ‘Your friends are in Paradise and your enemies are in Hell’, other than me?’
.
They replied, ‘By God; no.’
.
HE REMOVED ACCUSATION FROM THE HOUSEHOLD 
.
Then Ali (MGB) said, ‘I swear to you by God! Do you know that Ayesha told God’s Prophet (MGB), ‘Ibrahim (the son of Mariya al-Qabti) is not your son. He is the son of so and so Al-Qabti.’ The Prophet (MGB) told me, ‘O Ali! Go and kill him!’ Then I asked God’s Prophet (MGB), ‘Are you sending me there as a heated iron to execute this decree as soon as I get there, or do you want me to discover the truth?’ The Prophet (MGB) replied, ‘No. Go and discover the truth.’ Then I went after that Al-Qabti man. Once he saw me, he ran away into a garden. I followed him into the garden. Then he climbed

up a date palm tree. I pursued him to the top of the tree. Once he realized that I was chasing him, he took off his under shorts and I noticed that he had been totally castrated. Then I returned and told the Prophet about it. The Prophet (MGB) said, ‘Thanks God for removing this accusation from the Household.’ Wasn’t it done by me?’
.
They replied, ‘By God. Yes.’
.
Then Ali (MGB) said, ‘O God! Please be a witness to this.’” [10]

قوله الحكم بن مسكين يروى عنه ابن أبي عمير وفيه اشعار بوثاقته ويؤيده رواية الحسن بن محبوب والحسن بن على بن فضال ومحمد بن الحسين بن أبي الخطاب والحسن بن موسى الخشاب وغيرهم من الأجلة عنه وكونه كثير الرواية ومقبول الرواية وصاحب كتب متعددة إلى غير ذلك مما مر في الفوايد وهو متصف به وفي مصط يظهر من مشيخة الفقيه ان كنيته أبو عبد الله انتهى وقال جدي ره قال الشهيد ره لما كان كثير الرواية ولم يزد فيه طعن فانا اعمل على روايته

Opinion regarding Hakam bin Maskee, Ibn Abi Umair narrated from him, and it has peotry regarding his trustworthiness, and it is supported by narration of Hasan bin Mahboob, Hasan bin Ali bin Fadaal, Mohammad bin Hussein bin Abi Khitab, Hasan bin Musa Khashab and others from the great narrators. He narrated many narrations and his narrations are accepted…………Shaheed I said about him that He narrated a lot of narrations, and there is no criticism on him, So I (Shaheed I) act on his narrations 

[Taleeq A’la Minhaaj ul Miqal, p. 155]

Sheikh Ali Namazi Shahroudi said about him

أقول: ويشهد لحسنه وكماله وسلامته مضافا ” إلى ما تقدم رواياته الشريفة.

I say: The narrations are testifying on him being Hasan, and good and safe

[Mustadrakat Ilm Rijal ul Hadeeth, 3/242]

And on next page, he wrote

قال الشهيد على ما حكى عنه: أنا أعمل على روايته. وعن المحقق الحكم بصحة رواياته

Shaheed said that I act on his narrations, and Mohaqqiq authenticated his narrations. 

Agha Khoi said about him in his Maujam, 4/162-163

وطريق الصدوق إليه: أبوه – رضي الله عنه – عن سعد بن عبد الله، عن محمد بن الحسين بن أبي الخطاب، عن الحكم بن مسكين عن أيوب بن أعين.

والطريق صحيح، وإن كان فيه الحكم بن مسكين لأنه ثقة

This chain is Sahih, (which is in fact the same as We have so far mentioned in his particular hadeeth till now), and there is Hakam bin Miskeen, and He is Thiqa

 وأما أبو طارق فلعله كثير بن طارق أبو طارق القنبري الذي عنونه النجاشي وقال من ولد قنبر مولى أمير المؤمنين عليه السلام. لكن لم أجده بعنوان السراج فلعل السراج تصحيف القنبري.
والله أعلم.

And as per Agha Jawahii, Kather bin Tariq is Majhool.

9- Aamir bin Wathila. Agha Wahid Behbehani wrote for him

قوله عامر بن واصلة: في الخصال بعد ذكر حديث فقال معروف بن خربود فعرضت هذا الكلام على أبى جعفر عليه السلام فقال صدق أبو الطفيل رحمه الله الحديث وفي هذاشهادة على حسن حاله ورجوعه لو صح كونه كيسانيا.

As regards to opinion regarding Aamir bin Wathila, in al Khisal after the narration, Maroof bin Kharboodh presented him Narration to Imam Abu Jafar (asws), and He replied: Abu Tufail ( رحمه الله) said the truth. And this testifies his Good status and return to truth if it is correct that he turned Kisaniyya

[Taleeq, p. 207]

Allama Hilli included him at the end of First Category in Special companions of Imam Ali (a.s) in his al Khulasa, p. 307

He is a narrator of Tafsir Qummi as mentioned by Sheikh Ali Namazi, and Sheikh also termed his narrations Sahih.
