It was the same Shirt that been sent from Paradise.” I (the narrator) then said, “May Allah take my soul in service for your cause, to whom did that Shirt go thereafter?” The Imam said, “It went to its (people) owner.” Then he said, “Every prophet who inherited knowledge or other things, they were all eventually passed down from the Messenger of Allah salutations be upon him, to the House of Muhammad.” [al-Kafi], Al-Abraqa: Extraterrestrial Luminous Belt, Narrated Imam Ja’far al-Sadiq: “When the Messenger of Allah, salutations be upon him, was about to leave this world, he called al-Abbas ibn ‘Abd al-Muttalib and Amir al-Mu’minin ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib to his private chamber…He asked ‘Ali, “O ‘Ali, brother of Muhammad, will you pay off the liabilities of Muhammad, pay off his debt and take possession of his legacy?” He said, “Yes, May Allah take my soul and the soul of my parents in service for your cause, it is my responsibility and in my favor”.
