Back to book

10 - قال أخبرني أبو القاسم جعفر بن محمد القمي رحمه الله قال: حدثنا سعد بن عبد الله قال: حدثنا أحمد بن محمد بن عيسى قال: حدثني هارون بن مسلم، عن علي بن أسباط، عن سيف بن عميرة، عن عمرو بن شمر، عن جابر قال: قلت لأبي جعفر محمد بن علي الباقر عليهما السلام: إذا حدثتني بحديث فأسنده لي، فقال: حدثني أبي، عن جدي ، عن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم، عن جبرئيل عليه السلام، عن الله عز وجل، وكل ما أحدثك بهذا الإسناد. وقال: يا جابر لحديث واحد تأخذه عن صادق خير لك من الدنيا وما فيها.


10. He said: Abul Qasim Ja’far ibn Muhammad al-Qummi, may Allah bless him with mercy, reported to me from Sa’d ibn Abdullah, who reported from Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn Isa, who reported from Harun ibn Muslim, from ‘Ali ibn Asbat, from Saif ibn Umayrah, from Amru ibn Shimr, from Jabir who said: I told Abu Ja’far Muhammad ibn ‘Ali al-Baqir (as): "When you relate a tradition to me, provide its chain of narrators for me." He said: "My father reported to me, from my grandfather, from the messenger of Allah, peace be upon him and his progeny, from Jibraeel (as), from Allah, Most High. Whatever I mention to you is based on this chain of narrators." And then he said: "O Jabir, a tradition received by you from a truthful source is better for you than the whole world and whatever is in it."
