حدثنا محمد بن محمد بن عصام الكليني رضى الله عنه قال: حدثنا محمد بن يعقوب الكليني رضى الله عنه قال حدثنا الحسين بن الحسن الحسني وعلي بن محمد ابن عبد الله جميعا عن ابراهيم بن اسحاق الاحمر، عن عبد الرحمان بن عبد الله الخزاعى عن نصر بن مزاحم المنقري، عن عمرو بن شمر، عن جابر بن يزيد الجعفي قال: قال أبو جعفر محمد بن الباقر " ع " ان ابى علي بن الحسسين " ع " ما ذكر نعمة الله عليه إلا سجد، ولاقرأ آية من كتاب الله عز وجل وفيها سجود إلا سجد ولادفع الله تعالى عنه سوء يخشاه أو كيد كايد إلا سجد، ولافرغ من صلاة مفروضة إلا سجد، ولاوفق لاصلاح بين اثنين إلا سجد، وكان اثر السجود فجميع مواضع سجوده فسمى السجاد لذلك.


1. Muhammad Bin Muhammad Bin Asaam Al Kulayni narrated to us, from Muhammad Bin Yaqoub Al Kulayni, from Al Husayn Bin Al Hassan Al Hasany and Ali Bin Muhammad Ibn Abdullah, together from Ibrahim Bin Is’haq Al Ahmar, from Abdul Rahma Bin Abdullah Al Khazai’e, from Nasr Bin Mazaham Al Manqary, from umaro Bin Shimr, from Jabir Bin Yazeed Al Ju’fy who said, ‘Abu Ja’far Muhammad (asws) Bin Ali Al-Baqir (asws) having said: ‘My (asws) father (asws) Ali (asws) Bin Al-Husayn (asws) would not remember a Bounty of Allah (azwj) except that he (asws) would Prostrate, nor read a Verse from the Book of Allah (azwj) Mighty and Majestic, and in it would be Prostration, except that he (asws) would Prostrate, nor would Allah (azwj) Repel an evil from him (asws) which he (asws) feared, or a plot of a plotter, except that he (asws) would Prostrate, nor being free from an Obligatory Prayer, except that he (asws) would Prostrate, nor effect reconciliation between two (persons), except that he (asws) would Prostrate. And the effects of the Prostrations were on all of his (asws) places (body parts) of Prostrations. Thus, he (asws) was named as ‘Sajaad’ due to that’.
