Hadith #1

28-3 حدثنا أبي رضي الله عنه قال: حدثنا سعد بن عبد الله، عن محمد بن عبدالحميد العطار، عن محمد بن راشد البرمكي، عن عمر بن سهل الاسدي، عن سهل بن غزوان البصري قال: سمعت أبا عبد الله عليه السلام يقول: إن امرأة من الجن كان يقول لها عفراء وكانت تأتي النبي صلى الله عليه وآله فتسمع من كلامه فتأتي صالحي الجن فيسلمون على يديها وأنها فقدها النبي صلى الله عليه وآله فسأل عنها جبرئيل عليه السلام فقال: إنها زادت اختا لها تحبها في الله فقال النبي صلى الله عليه وآله: طوبى للمتحابين في الله إن الله تبارك وتعالى خالق في الجنة عمودا من ياقوتة حمراء عليه سبعون ألف قصر في كل قصر سبعون ألف غرفة خلقهـا الله عز وجل للمتحـابين والمتزاورين، يا عفـراء أي شـيء رأيـت؟ قـالت :رأيت عجائب كثيرة، قال: فأعجب ما رأيت قالت: رأيت إبليس في البحر الاخضر على صخرة بيضاء مادا يديه إلى السماء وهو يقول: إلهي إذا بررت قسمك وأدخلتني نار جهنم فأسالك بحق محمد وعلي وفاطمة والحسن والحسين ألا خلصتني منها وحشرتني معهم، فقلت: يا حارث ما هذه الاسماء التي تدعو بها؟ قال لي: رأيتها على ساق العرش من قبل أن يخلق الله آدم بسبعة آلاف سنة، فعلمت أنها أكرم الخلق على الله عز وجل فأنا أساله بحقهم. فقال النبي صلى الله عليه وآله: والله لو أقسم أهل الارض بهذه الاسماء لاجابهم

28-3 (The compiler of the book narrated) that his father - may God be pleased with him - narrated that Sa’ed ibn Abdullah quoted Muhammad ibn Abdul Hamid al-At’tar, on the authority of Muhammad ibn Rashid al-Barmaky, on the authority of Umar ibn Sahl Al-Asady, on the authority of Sahl ibn Qazvan al-Basry that he had heard Aba Abdullah as-Sadiq (MGB) say, “A female genie called Afra’e used to go to the Prophet (MGB), hear his sayings, go to the good genies, invite them to Islam. They accepted Islam due to her efforts. She did not go to the Prophet (MGB) for a few days. The Prophet (MGB) asked Gabriel about her condition. Gabriel replied, ‘She has gone to visit one of her believing sisters.’ The Prophet (MGB), ‘Blessed be those who make friends in the way of the Blessed the Sublime God. God The Blessed The Exalted has created a pillar from red ruby in Heaven upon which there are seventy-thousand palaces each with seventy-thousand rooms. God has created them for those who make friendship for the sake of God and visit each other.’ When Afra’e went to see the Prophet (MGB), he (MGB) asked her, ‘O Afra’e! What did you see?’ She replied, ‘I saw many strange things.’ The Prophet (MGB) asked, ‘Whatwas the strangest thing?’ She replied, ‘The strangest of all was that I saw that Satan was sitting on a white stone in a green sea and had raised his hands to the sky and said, ‘O my God! When you fulfill your promise and throw me into the Fire of Hell, I beseech you in the rightfulness of Muhammad (MGB), Ali (MGB), Fatimah (MGB), Al-Hassan (MGB) and Al-Hussein (MGB) to release me from the Fire of Hell and unite me with them on the Resurrection Day.’ Afra’e added, ‘I told Satan, ‘O Satan! What are these names with which you beseech God?’ Satan replied, ‘I saw them on the foreleg of God’s Throne seventy-thousand years before God created Adam and I knew that they are the dearest of the creations to God. That is why I beseech God by their rightfulness.’ The Prophet (MGB) said, ‘Whenever the people on the Earth beseech God using these names, God would fulfill their supplications.’”
