Back to book

7-51 حدثنا محمد بن عمر البغدادي الحافظ قال: حدثني أحمد بن الحسن بن عبدالكريم أبوعبد الله قال: حدثني عتاب يعني ابن صهيب قال: حدثنا عيسى بن عبد الله العمري قال: حدثني أبي، عن أبيه، عن جده، عن علي عليهم السلام قال: خلقت الارض لسبعة بهم يرزقون وبهم يمطرون وبهم ينصرون: أبوذر وسلمان والمقداد وعمار وحذيفة وعبد الله بن مسعود، قال علي عليه السلام: وأنا إمامهم وهم الذين شهدوا الصلاة على فاطمة عليها السلامقال مصنف هذا الكتاب رضي الله عنه: معنى قوله "خلقت الارض لسبعة نفر" ليس يعني من ابتدائها إلى انتهائها وإنما يعني بذلك أن الفائدة في الارض قدرت في ذلك الوقت لمن شهد الصلاة على فاطمة عليها السلام وهذا خلق تقدير لا خلق تكوين


7-51 Muhammad ibn Umar al-Baghdady al-Hafiz narrated that Ahmad ibn Abdul-Karim Abu Abdullah quoted I’tab - that is ibn Saheeb, on the authority of Isa ibn Abdullah al-Umari, on the authority of his father, on the authority of his father, on the authority of his grandfather, on the authority of Ali (MGB), “The Earth is created for seven persons. God grants your daily bread, rain falls upon you, and you become triumphant over your enemies due to them. They are Abuzar, Salman, Miqdad, Ammar Yaser, Hazifeh, Abdullah ibn Masood and I am their leader. They were the ones who were present for praying over the corpse of Fatimah (MGB).”The compiler of the book - may God be pleased with him - said, “Saying the Earth has been created for seven persons is not meant from the first day of creation until the last day of creation. Rather its intention is that those who said prayer over Fatimah’s corpse will benefit from the Earth.”
