10-1 حدثنا أبوالحسين محمد بن علي بن الشاه قال: حدثنا أبوبكر محمد بن جعفر ابن أحمد البغدادي بآمد قال: حدثنا أبي قال: حدثنا أحمد بن السخت قال: أخبرنامحمد بن أسود الوراق، عن أيوب بن سليمان، عن أبي البختري، عن محمد بن حميد، عن محمد بن المنكدر، عن جابر بن عبد الله قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله: أنا أشبه الناس بآدم، وإبراهيم أشبه الناس بي خلقة وخلقة، وسماني الله عز وجل من فوق عرشه عشرة أسماء، وبين الله وصفي وبشر بي على لسان كل رسول بعثه إلى قومه، وسماني ونشر في التوراة اسمي، وبث ذكري في أهل التوراة والانجيل، وعلمني كتابه ورفعني في سمائه، وشق لي إسما من أسمائه، فسماني محمدا وهو محمود، وأخرجني في خير قرن من امتي، وجعل اسمي في التوراة أحيد [وهو من التوحيد] فبالتوحيد حرم أجساد امتي على النار، وسماني في الانجيل أحمد فأنا محمود في أهل السماء وجعل امتي الحامدين، وجعل اسمي في الزبور ماح محى الله عز وجل بي من الارض عبادة الاوثان، وجعل اسمي في القرآن محمدا فأنا محمود في جميع القيامه في فصل القضاء، لايشفع أحد غيري، وسماني في القيامة حاشر يحشر الناس على قدمي، وسماني الموقف أوقف الناس بين يدي الله جل جلاله، وسماني العاقب أنا عقب النبين ليس بعدي رسول، وجعلني رسول الرحمة ورسول التوبة ورسول الملاحم والمقفى قفيت النبين جماعة، وأنا القيم الكامل الجامع ومن علي ربي، وقال: يا محمد صلى الله عليك قد أرسلت كل رسول إلى امته بلسانها وأرسلتك ألى كل أحمر وأسود من خلقي، ونصرتك بالرعب الذي لم أنصر به احدا، وأحللت لك الغنيمة، ولم تحل لاحد قبلك، وأعطيت لك ولامتك كنز من كنوز عرشي فاتحة الكتاب وخاتمة سورة البقرة، وجعلت لك ولامتك الارض كلها مسجدا وترابها طهورا. وأعطيت لك ولامتك التكبير، وقرنت ذكرك بذكري، حتى لايذكرني أحد من امتك إلا ذكرك مع ذكري، طوبى لك يا محمد ولأمتك


10-1 Abul Hussein Muhammad ibn Ali ibn al-Shah narrated that in Ahmed Abu Bakr Muhammad ibn Ja’far ibn Ahmad al-Baghdady quoted his father, on the authority of Ahmad ibn al-Sakht, on the authority of Muhammad ibn Aswad al-Warraq on the authority of Ayoob ibn Suleiman on the authorityof Abil Bakhtari, on the authority of Muhammad ibn Hamid, on the authority of Muhammad ibn Munkadir, on the authority of Jabir ibn Abdullah that God’s Prophet (MGB) said, “I am the most similar person to Adam. Abraham is the most similar to me in face and character amongst all the people. The Honorable the Exalted God gave me ten names from above His Throne. God has described me and has given the glad tidings of my coming by every Prophet that He has appointed over the people. He has mentioned My name in the Torah and has made me popular amongst the followers of the Torah and the Bible. He taught me His Book, and raised me up to His Heavens. He chose for me and gave me some of His Own names. He called me Muhammad and He is Mahmood (the Praised One). He brought me forth from the best of my nation. He established my name as Ahid (which comes from Towhid meaning monotheism) in the Torah. It is Unity by which the Fire became forbidden for the bodies of my Nation’s people. He established my name as Ahmad in the Bible as I am praised by the Residents of the Heavens, and God established my Nation as the ones who praise (Hamedin). God established my name as Mah in the Psalms (of David) as the Honorable the Exalted God who will wipe out idol-worshipping on the Earth by my name. God established my name as Muhammad in the Quran as I am the praised one in all of the Resurrection at the time of Judgement. No one but I can intercede. God established my name as Al-Hashir on the Day of Resurrection, since the people will be resurrected by my steps. God established my name as Al-Moqif, since God - may His Majesty be Exalted - shall stop the people in front of me. God distinguished my name as Al-Aqib, since I am the last of the Prophets and there will be no other Prophets after me. God established me as the Prophet of mercy, the Prophet of repentance, the Prophet of war, and the last Prophet who shall be the end of all Prophets. I am the perfect trustee. My Lord has honored me and said, ‘O Muhammad! May God’s Blessings be upon you! All the Prophets were sent to their nations to speak in their own tongue. However, I have sent you to all my people - be they red or black. I have assisted you with an awesomeness with which I have never assisted any of my other Prophets. I have made such a great amount of booties allowed for you which I had never allowed for anyone else before. I have granted you and your nation one of the treasures of my Throne being the Opening Chapter (Al-Fatiha ) and the end part of the Baqara Chapter of the Quran. I have established all the Earth as a mosque and have declared all its dirt as pure. I have granted you and your nation the Takbir (saying God is Great). I have established your name to be close to mine. None of the members of your nation may mention my name without mentioning your name. O Muhammad! May you and your nations be blessed.’”




10-2 حدثنا أبي رضي الله عنه قال: حدثنا سعد بن عبد الله، عن أحمد بن محمد بن عيسى، عن الحسن بن علي بن فضال، عن ابن بكير، عن محمد بن مسلم عن أبي جعفر عليه السلام قال:إن لرسول الله عليه السلام عشرة أسماء خمسة منها في القرآن وخمسة ليست في القرآن فأما التي في القرآن: فمحمد عليه السلام وأحمد وعبد الله ويس ونون، وأما التي ليست في القرآن فالفاتح والخاتم والكافي والمقفى والحاشر


10-2 (The compiler of the book narrated) that his father - may God be pleased with him - narrated that Sa’ed ibn Abdullah quoted Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn Isa, on the authority of Al-Hassan ibn Ali ibn Faz’zal, on the authority of Ibn Bakir, on the authority of Muhammad ibn Muslim that Abi Ja’far al-Baqir (MGB) said, “Indeed there are ten names for the Prophet of God (MGB): five of which are in the Quran and five of which are not in the Quran. The ones that are in the Quran are Muhammad (MGB); Ahmad; Abdullah; YaSin; and Noon. The names which are not in the Quran are Al-Fatih; Al-Khatam; Al-Kafi; Al-Muqfi and Al-Hashir.”
