They only lay eggs and a new male is produced. There are no females in their line.”

3-187 حدثنا أبي رضي الله عنه قال: حدثنا سعد بن عبد الله قال: حدثنا أحمد ابن أبي عبد الله البرقي، عن الحسن بن محبوب، عن أبي أيوب، عن عبدالمؤمن الانصاري، عن أبي جعفر عليه السلام قال:إن الله عز وجل أعطى المؤمن ثلاث خصال العزة في الدنيا، والفلح في الآخرة، والمهابة في صدور الظالمين، ثم قرأ "وَلِلَّهِ الْعِزَّةُ وَلِرَسُولِهِ وَلِلْمُؤْمِنِينَ." وقرأ " قَدْ أَفْلَحَ الْمُؤْمِنُونَ…" إلى قوله "هُمْ فِيهَا خَالِدُونَ ."

3-187 (The compiler of the book narrated) that his father - may God be pleased with him - narrated that Sa’ed ibn Abdullah quoted Ahmad ibn Aba Abdullah Al-Barqy, on the authority of Al-Hassan ibn Mahboob, on the authority of Abi Ayoob, on the authority of Abdul-Mumin al-Ansari that Abi Ja’far al-Baqir (MGB) said, “The Honorable the Exalted God has granted the believers three characteristics: honor in this world; prosperity in the Hereafter and grandeur in the hearts of the oppressors.” Then he (MGB) went on and recited the following verse of the Holy Quran, ‘…But honour belongs to Allah and His Messenger, and to the Believers; but the Hypocrites know not.’ And he (MGB) also recited the following verses, ‘The believers must (eventually) win through,- Those who humble themselves in their prayers; Who avoid vain talk; Who are active in deeds of charity; Who abstain from sex, Except with those joined to them in the marriage bond, or (the captives) whom their right hands possess,- for (in their case) they are free from blame, But those whose desires exceed those limits are transgressors;- Those who faithfully observe their trusts and their covenants; And who (strictly) guard their prayers;- These will be the heirs, Who will inherit Paradise: they will dwell therein (for ever). ’
