15-1 Al-Hassan ibn Abdullah ibn Sa’id al-Askari narrated that Muhammad ibn Abdullah al-Baz’zaz quoted on the authority of Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn Ibrahim al-Ar’tar, on the authority of Abul-Rabi’a Suleiman ibn Davood, on the authority of Faraj ibn Fuzalat, on the authority of Yahya ibn Sa’id, on the authority of Muhammad ibn al-Hanafyat, on the authority of Ali ibn Abi Talib (MGB) that God’s Prophet (MGB) said, “My nation may experience serious trouble if they practice fifteen things.” He (MGB) was asked, “O Prophet of God! What are these things?” He (MGB) replied, “They are the following: the nation’s capital is controlled by a few special people; people do not honor what they are entrusted with; people consider the payment of the alms-tax as a form of loss; men obey their wives but they disobey their mothers; people are kind to their friends but they hurt their fathers; the worst people in the society run the affairs of the people and the best of the people fear the one who runs the affairs and his wicked deeds; the mosques get filled with loud (forbidden) sounds; people wear silk clothes; people play musical instruments and hire singers; the latter people in the nation curse the former ones. In this situation you can expect red winds, landslides , and drastic changes in the people.




15-2 حدثنا أبوسعيد محمد بن الفضل بن محمد بن إسحاق المذكر قال: حدثنا أبويحيى البزاز النيسابوري فيما أجازه لنا قال: حدثنا محمد بن حسان بن عمران البلخي قال: حدثنا قتيبة بن سعيد قال: حدثنا فرج بن فضالة، عن يحيى بن سعيد عن محمد بن علي، عن أبيه علي بن أبي طالب عليه السلام قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله:إذا عملت امتي خمسة عشر خصلة حل بها البلاء، قيل: وماهي يا رسول الله؟ قال: إذا كان المغنم دولا، والامانة مغنما، والزكاة مغرما، وأطاع الرجل زوجته، وعق امه وبر صديقه، وجفا أباه، وارتفعت الاصوات في المساجد، وكان زعيم القوم أرذلهم وضربوا بالمعازف، ولعن آخر الامة أولها فليرتقبوا عند ذلك ريحا حمراء أو خسفا أو مسخاقال مصنف هذا الكتاب رضي الله عنه: يعني بقوله ولعن آخر هذه الامة أولها الخوارج الدين يلعنون أمير المؤمنين عليه السلام وهو أول الامة إيمانا بالله عز وجل وبرسوله صلى الله عليه وآله


15-2 Abu Sa’id Muhammad ibn al-Fazl ibn Muhammad ibn Ishaq al-Mozakir narrated that Abu Yahya l-Baz’zaz al-Neishaboory, on the authority of Muhammad ibn Hisan ibn Imran al-Balkhi, on the authority of Qutaybat ibn Sa’id, on the authority of Faraj ibn Fuzalat, on the authority of Yahya ibn Sa’id, on the authority of Muhammad ibn Ali al-Baqir (MGB), on the authority of his father (MGB), on the authority of Ali ibn Abi Talib (MGB) that God’s Prophet (MGB) said, “My nation may experience serious trouble if they practice fifteen things.” He (MGB) was asked, “O Prophet of God! What are these things?” He (MGB) replied, “They are the following: the nation’s capital is controlled by a few special people; people do not honor what they are entrusted with; people consider the payment of the alms-tax as a form of loss; men obey their wives, and disobey their mothers; people are kind to their friends, but they hurt their fathers; the mosques get filled with loud (forbidden) sounds; the worst people in the society run the affairs of the people; people play musical instruments; and those of the latter ones of this nation curse those of the former ones. In this situation you can expect red winds, landslides , and drastic changes in the people.”The compiler of the book - may God be pleased with him - said, “What the Prophet (MGB) meant by saying ‘those of the latter ones of this nation curse those of the former ones’ is the Kharajites who cursed the Commander of the Faithful Imam Ali (MGB) who was the first of the nation who believed in the Honorable the Exalted God and His Prophet (MGB).”
