7-113 أبي رضي الله عنه قال: حدثنا عبد الله بن الحسن المؤدب، عن أحمد ابن علي الاصبهاني، عن إبراهيم بن محمد الثقفي قال: أخبرنا مخول بن إبراهيم قال: حدثنا عبدالجبار بن العباس الهمداني، عن عمار بن معاوية الدهني، عن عمرة بنت أفعي قالت: سمعت ام سلمة رضي الله عنها تقول: نزلت هذه الآية في بيتي "...إِنَّمَا يُرِيدُ اللَّهُ لِيُذْهِبَ عَنكُمُ الرِّجْسَ أَهْلَ الْبَيْتِ وَيُطَهِّرَكُمْ تَطْهِيرًا" قالت: وفي البيت سبعة رسول الله وجبرئيل وميكائيل وعلي وفاطمة والحسن والحسين صلوات الله عليهم، قالت: وأنا على الباب فقلت: يارسول الله ألست من أهل البيت؟ قال: إنك من أزواج النبي صلى الله عليه وآله.وما قال، إنك من أهل البيتقال مصنف هذا الكتاب رضي الله عنه: هذا حديث غريب لا أعرفه إلا بهذا الطريق والمعروف أن أهل البيت الذين نزلت فيهم أية التطهير خمسة وسادسهم جبرئيل عليه السلام


7-113 (The compiler of the book narrated that) my father - may God be pleased with him - narrated that Abdullah ibn al-Hassan al-Mo’adab quoted Ahmad ibn al-Isbahany, on the authority of Ibrahim ibn Muhammad al-Saqafy, on the authority of Mukhaval ibn Ibrahim , on the authority of Abdul Jab’bar ibn Ab’bas al-Hamedany, on the authority of Am’mar ibn Muawiyah al-Dahani, on the authority of Umrat ibn Af’ee that he had heard Umma Salma say, “The following verse (of Purification) was revealed in my house, ‘…And God only wishes to remove all abomination from you, ye members of the Family, and to make you pure and spotless.’ There were seven people present as follows: God’s Prophet (MGB), Gabriel, Michael , Ali (MGB), Fatimah (MGB), Al-Hassan (MGB) and Al-Hussein (MGB) and I was standing at the door. Then I asked, ‘O Prophet of God (MGB)! Am I not one of the members of the Family?’ The Prophet (MGB) told me, ‘You are one of the Prophet’s wives.’ He (MGB) did not say, ‘You are one of the members of my Family.’”The compiler of the book - may God be pleased with him - said, “This is a strange narration which has not been cited anywhere except here. What is generally known is that when the verse of purification was revealed, five members of the Prophet’s Household were present (including the Prophet (MGB)) and Gabriel was the sixth one there.”
