1 - قال: أخبرني أبو غالب أحمد بن محمد الزراري قال: حدثني أبو طاهر محمد بن سليمان الزراري قال: حدثنا محمد بن الحسين بن أبي الخطاب، عن محمد بن يحيى الخزاز، عن غياث بن إبراهيم، عن أبي عبد الله الصادق جعفر بن محمد صلوات الله عليهما، عن أبيه، عن جده عليهم السلام قال: كان رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله إذا خطب حمد الله وأثنى عليه ثم قال : أما بعد فإن أصدق الحديث كتاب الله، وأفضل الهدى هدى محمد، وشر الأمور محدثاتها، وكل بدعة ضلالة. ويرفع صوته، وتحمار وجنتاه ، ويذكر الساعة وقيامها حتى كأنه منذر جيش ، يقول: صبحتكم الساعة، مستكم الساعة ، ثم يقول: بعثت أنا والساعة كهاتين ويجمع بين سبابتيه، من ترك مالا فلأهله، ومن ترك دينا فعلي وإلي .


1. He said: Abu Ghalib Ahmad ibn Muhammad al-Zurariy who reported from Muhammad ibn al-Husayn ibn Abi al-Khattab, from Muhammad ibn Yahya al-Khazzar, from Ghiyath ibn Ibrahim, from Abu Abdillah al-Sadiq, Ja’far ibn Muhammad, peace be upon both of them, from his father, from his grandfather, who said: Whenever the Prophet, peace be upon him and his progeny stood to address, he would praise Allah and thank Him. Then he would say: "Know you all, that the most veracious and truthful statement is the Book of Allah (i.e. the Qu’ran) and the best guidance is that of Muhammad. The worst things are those which are invented concoctions, and every such innovation is misleading." Then he would raise his voice, with his cheeks gradually turning red and remind people of the Day of Reckoning and its dawn, in the manner one warns of an advancing army of the enemy. He would say: "It dawns with you every morning and is with you every evening!" Then he would say: "I have been sent to you with the Day of Reckoning like these two (then he would join his two forefingers). Whoever leaves behind him wealth, that will go to its heirs and whoever leaves behind a debt, it is my responsibility."
