5-91 حدثنا محمد بن علي بن الشاه قال: حدثنا أبوحامد قال: حدثنا أبو يزيد قال: حدثنا محمد بن أحمد بن صالح التميمي، عن أبيه قال: حدثنا أنس بن محمد أبومالك، عن أبيه، عن جعفر بن محمد، عن أبيه، عن جده، عن علي بن أبي طالبعليه السلام عن النبي صلى الله عليه وآله أنه قال في وصيته له: يا علي إن عبدالمطلب سن في الجاهية خمس سنن أجارها الله له في الاسلام، حرم نساء الآباء على الابناء فأنزل الله عز وجل "ولا تنكحوا ما نكح آباؤكم من النساء" ووجد كنزا فأخرج منه الخمس وتصدق به، فأنزل الله عز وجل: "وَاعْلَمُوا أَنَّمَا غَنِمْتُمْ مِنْ شَيْءٍ فَأَنَّ لِلَّهِ خُمُسَهُ وَلِلرَّسُولِ وَلِذِي الْقُرْبَى وَالْيَتَامَى وَالْمَسَاكِينِ وَابْنِ السَّبِيلِ إِنْ كُنتُمْ آمَنْتُمْ بِاللَّهِ وَمَا أَنزَلْنَا عَلَى عَبْدِنَا يَوْمَ الْفُرْقَانِ يَوْمَ الْتَقَى الْجَمْعَانِ وَاللَّهُ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ "ولما حفر زمزم سماها سقاية الحاج، فأنزل الله "أَجَعَلْتُمْ سِقَايَةَ الْحَاجِّ وَعِمَارَةَ الْمَسْجِدِ الْحَرَامِ كَمَنْ آمَنَ بِاللَّهِ وَالْيَوْمِ الآخِرِ وَجَاهَدَ فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ لاَ يَسْتَوُونَ عِنْدَ اللَّهِ وَاللَّهُ لاَ يَهْدِي الْقَوْمَ الظَّالِمِينَ "وسن في القتل مائة من الابل فأجرى الله عروجل ذلك في الاسلام، ولم يكن للطواف عدد عند قريش فسن فيهم عبدالمطلب سبعة أشواط، فأجرى الله ذلك في الاسلام. يا علي إن عبدالمطلب كان لا يستقسم بالازلام، ولا يعبد الاصنام، ولا يأكل ما ذبح على النصب، ويقول: أنا على دين أبي إبراهيم عليه السلام


5-91 Muhammad ibn Ali ibn ash-Shah narrated that Abu Hamid quoted Abu Yazid, on the authority of Muhammad ibn Ahmad ibn Salih al-Tamimy, on the authority of his father, on the authority of Anas ibn Muhammad Abu Malik, on the authority of his father, on the authority of Ja’far ibn Muhammad as-Sadiq (MGB), on the authority of his father (MGB), on the authority of his grandfather (MGB), on the authority of Ali ibn Abi Talib (MGB) that in his will to Ali (MGB) the Prophet (MGB) told him,“O Ali! Abdul Mutalib practiced five traditions - during the Age of Ignorance - which God established in Islam for his sake. He forbade marrying women to whom your fathers married. Thus, the Honorable the Exalted God revealed ‘And marry not women whom your fathers married,…’ He found a treasure and did not pay the one-fifth levy on it, but gave it away in charity. Then the Honorable the Exalted God revealed, ‘And know that out of all the booty that ye may acquire (in war), a fifth share is assigned to God,- and to the Apostle, and to near relatives, orphans, the needy, and the way-farer,- if ye do believe in God and in the revelation We sent down to Our servant on the Day of Testing,- the Day of the meeting of the two forces. For God hath power over all things.’When he dug up the Zamzam well, he called it ‘the place for the pilgrims to drink from.’ Then God revealed ‘Do ye make the giving of drink to pilgrims, or the maintenance of the Sacred Mosque, equal to (the pious service of) those who believe in God and the Last Day, and strive with might and main in the cause of God? They are not comparable in the sight of God: and God guides not those who do wrong.’ He established one-hundred camels to be the blood-money for unintentional killing. Then the ?Honorable the Exalted God established this in Islam. There was no certain number for the rounds of circumambulation of the Ka’ba. Abdul Mutalib established that to be seven times. Then the Honorable the Exalted God established this in Islam. O Ali! Abdul Mutalib never gambled by raffling with arrows, worshipped idols, or ate what on which the name of other than God was invoked. He used to say, ‘I am the follower of the religion of my (fore)father -Abraham (MGB).’”
