A narration attributed to ‘Ali (radiyallahu ‘anhu) describing those with Taqwa

Question

My query is the quote of Sayyiduna ‘Ali (radiyallahu ‘anhu) on Taqwa [a lengthy one] I was wondering if you can provide the Arabic text for this:

The quote commences:

“When Allah created His creation, He did so while He was completely independent of their obedience towards Him and of their disobedience towards Him. No disobedience can hurt Him and no obedience can benefit Him. Then He distributed amongst them their means of sustenance and placed them on earth.

The people of taqwa on earth are those of virtue; their speech is correct [true], their garments are of moderate nature and their walk is one of humility. They lower their gazes when they see something that Allah has forbidden them to see and they give ear to beneficial knowledge. They maintain their integrity in both adversity and prosperity.

Had it not been for the appointed time that Allah has written for them [death], their souls would not remain an extra second in their bodies out of yearning for reward and fear of punishment. The Creator ranks Supreme in their eyes, so everything else becomes immaterial to them. They are with Paradise as if they had already witnessed it and enjoyed its presence. They are with Hell as if they have already seen it and its torment. Their hearts grieve and their evil [if any] is non-contagious. Their bodies are lean, their needs are few and their souls chaste.”

عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ أَبِي مُلَيْكَةَ أَنَّ عَائِشَةَ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهَا أَقْبَلَتْ ذَاتَ يَوْمٍ مِنَ الْمَقَابِرِ فَقُلْتُ لَهَا يَا أُمَّ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ مِنْ أَيْنَ أَقْبَلْتِ قَالَتْ مِنْ قَبْرِ أَخِي عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَنِ بْنِ أَبِي بَكْرٍ فَقُلْتُ لَهَا أَلَيْسَ كَانَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ نَهَى عَنْ زِيَارَةِ الْقُبُورِ قَالَتْ نَعَمْ كَانَ نَهَى ثُمَّ أَمَرَ بِزِيَارَتِهَا
