Ja`far al-Sadiq and his father al-Baqir narrate what `Ali ibn abi Talib (ra) said to `Umar ibn al-Khattab (ra) when he was stabbed.

Fada’il al-Sahabah lil-Daraqutni page.43 Hadith #19:

حَدَّثَنَا جَعْفَرُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ نُصَيْرٍ، قَالَ: نَا عُبَيْدُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ صُبَيْحٍ الزَّيَّاتُ يُعْرَفُ بِسِيدَانَ، قَالَ: نَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ عُمَرَ بْنِ الْوَلِيدِ، قَالَ: نَا إِسْحَاقُ بْنُ مَنْصُورِ بْنِ السَّلُولِيِّ، عَنْ سَلامِ بْنِ أَبِي مُطِيعٍ الْبَصْرِيِّ، عَنْ أَيُّوبَ السَّخْتِيَانِيِّ، عَنْ جَعْفَرِ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ، عَنْ أَبِيهِ ، قَالَ: لَمَّا طُعِنَ عُمَرُ رِضْوَانُ اللَّهِ عَلَيْهِ بَعَثَ إِلَى حَلْقَةٍ مِنْ أَهْلِ بَدْرٍ يَجْلِسُونَ بَيْنَ الْقَبْرِ وَالْمِنْبَرِ، يَقُولُ لَكُمْ عُمَرُ: أَنْشُدُكُمْ بِاللَّهِ، أَكَانَ هَذَا عَنْ رِضًى مِنْكُمْ؟ فَتَلَكَّأَ الْقَوْمُ، فَقَالَ عَلِيٌّ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ: ” اللَّهُمَّ لا وَدِدْنَا أَنَّا زِدْنَا فِي عُمُرِكَ مِنْ أَعْمَارِنَا

[Ja`far bin Muhammad bin Nusayr (Thiqah) -> `Ubayd bin Muhammad bin Subayh (La Ba’sa Bihi) -> Muhammad ibn `Umar bin al-Walid al-Kindi (Saduq Hasan) -> Ishaq bin Mansour al-Salouli (Thiqah Shi`ee) -> Salam bin Sa`d al-Khuza`ee (Thiqah) -> Ayyub al-Sikhtiyani (Thiqah Thabt Imam) -> Ja`far ibn Muhammad al-Sadiq (Thiqah Faqih) -> Muhammad ibn `Ali al-Baqir (Thiqah)

He said: When `Umar may Allah’s blessings befall him was stabbed, he sent after some of the people of Badr who sat in a circle between the grave and the Mimbar: “By Allah, were you pleased with this?” They remained silent, so `Ali may Allah be pleased with him said: “By Allah No! We wish to take from our own lives so we can add to the life of `Umar.”]

May Allah be pleased with them and not be pleased with their enemies.
