112. Satan Cried Out Four Times

Back to book

4-14 1 حدثنا أبي رضي الله عنه قال: حدثنا سعد بن عبد الله، عن أحمد بن محمد ابن عيسى، عن الحسن بن علي بن فضال، عن علي بن عقبة، عن بعض أصحابنا، عن أبي عبد الله عليه السلام قال: رن إبليس أربع رنات: أولهن، يوم لعن، وحين اهبط إلى الارض، وحين بعث محمد صلى الله عليه وآله على حين فترة من الرسل، وحين انزلت أم الكتاب ونخر نخرتين: حين أكل آدم من الشجرة، وحين اهبط من الجنة

4-141 (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 Ali ibn Aqabah, on the authority of some companions that Aba Abdullah as-Sadiq (MGB) said, “Satan cried out four times. Firstly, it was on the day on which it was cursed. The second time was when it was sent down to the Earth. The third time was when Muhammad (MGB) was appointed to the Prophethood at the end of the Prophethood chain. Then it was when the Fatiha Chapter of the Quran was revealed. Satan was pleased twice: when Adam (MGB) ate of the forbidden tree, and when Adam (MGB) was sent down to the Earth.”
