6 - قال: أخبرني أبو الحسن أحمد بن محمد بن الحسن قال: حدثني أبي، عن سعد بن عبد الله، عن أحمد بن محمد بن عيسى، عن الحسن بن محبوب قال: حدثني يحيى بن عبد الله بن الحسن قال: سمعت جعفر بن محمد عليهما السلام يقول وعنده ناس من أهل كوفة: عجبا للناس يقولون: أخذوا علمهم كله عن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم فعملوا به واهتدوا، ويرون أنا أهل البيت لم نأخذ علمه، ولم نهتد به ونحن أهله وذريته، في منازلنا أنزل الوحي، ومن عندنا خرج إلى الناس العلم. أفتراهم علموا واهتدوا، وجهلنا وضللنا؟! إن هذا محال.


6. He said: Abul Hasan Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn al-Hasan reported to me from his father, from Sa’d ibn Abdillah, from Ahmad b Muhammad ibn Isa, from al-Hasan ibn Mahboob from Yahya ibn Abdillah ibn al-Hasan who said: I heard Ja’far ibn Muhammad, peace be upon him, say in the presence of people of Kufa: "It is surprising to hear people claim that they have derived all their knowledge from the Prophet, peace be upon him and his progency, and having acted accordingly, they are guided. And they believe that we, Ahlul Bayt, have not derived his knowledge, nor have we been guided by him, in spite of being his family members and descendants! The revelation descended in our homes, and from us the knowledge reached the people. Do you believe that they knew and were guided, while we remained ignorant and lost? This is indeed impossible."
