حدثنا علي بن احمد بن محمد رضى الله عنه قال: حدثنا محمد بن أبي عبد الله الكوفي عن موسى بن عمران النخعي عن عمه الحسين بن يزيد النوفلي عن علي بن سالم عن أبيه عن أبى بصير قال: قلت لابي عبد الله " ع " لاي علة خلق الله عزوجل آدم من غير أب وأم، وخلق عيسى " ع " من غير أب وخلق ساير الناس من الآباء والامهات؟ فقال: ليعلم الناس تمام قدرته وكمالها، ويعلموا أنه قادر على ان يخلق خلقا من انثى من غير ذكر، كما هو قادر على ان يخلقه من غير ذكر ولا انثى وانه عزوجل فعل ذلك ليعلم انه على كل شئ قدير.


1. Ali Bin Ahmad Bin Muhammad, from Muhammad Bin Abu Abdullah Al Kufy, from Musa Bin Imran Al Nakhai’e, from his uncle Al Husayn Bin Yazeed Al Nowfaly, from Ali Bin Saalim, from his father, from Abu Baseer who said, ‘I said to Abu Abdullah (a.s.), ‘For which reason is Allah (azwj) Mighty and Majestic Created Adam (as) without a father or mother, and Created Isa (as) without a father, and Created the rest of the people from the fathers and the mothers?’ The Imam (a.s.) said: ‘To let the people know the completeness of His (azwj) Power and its Perfection, and they would know that He (azwj) is Able to Create a creature from a female without a male, just as He (azwj) is Able to Create him from without a male or a female, and He (azwj) Mighty and Majestic Did that to let it be known that He (azwj) has Power over everything’.
