2-96 حدثنا أبي رضي الله عنه قال: حدثنا سعد بن عبد الله، عن القاسم بن محمد الاصبهاني، عن سليمان بن داود المنقري قال: حدثنا يحيى بن سعيد القطان قال: سمعت أبا عبد الله عليه السلام يقول في قوله عز وجل: "مرج البحرين يلتقيان بينهما برزخ لا يبغيان" قال: علي وفاطمة عليهما السلام بحران من العلم، عميقان، لا يبغى أحدهما على صاحبه "يخرج منهما اللؤلؤ والمرجان" الحسن والحسين عليهما السلام


2-96 (The compiler of the book narrated) that his father - may God be pleased with him - narrated that Sa’ed ibn Abdullah quoted Al-Qasim ibn Muhammad al-Isfahani, on the authority of Suleiman ibn Davood al-Minqari, on the authority of Yahya ibn Sa’id al-Qat’tan that he had heard Aba Abdullah as-Sadiq (MGB) say, “The following words of the Honorable the Exalted God ‘He has let free the two bodies of flowing water, meeting together: Between them is a Barrier which they do not transgress’ refer to Ali (MGB) and Fatimah (MGB). They are like the ‘two bodies of water’ filled with such deep knowledge that neither one of them would transgress to the other one’s side. And the verse ‘Out of them come Pearls and Coral’ refers to Al-Hassan (MGB) and Al-Hussein (MGB).”
