حدثنا علي بن احمد بن محمد رضى الله عنه قال: حدثنا محمد بن هارون الصوفى قال: حدثنا أبو بكر عبيدالله بن موسى الحبال الطبري قال: حدثنا محمد ابن الحسين الخشاب قال: حدثنا محمد بن الحصين قال: حدثنا المفضل بن عمر عن ابن حمزة ثابت بن دينار الثمالى عن علي بن الحسين عن ابيه عن جده عليهما السلام قال: قال رسول صلى الله عليه وآله إذ ولد إبني جعفر بن محمد بن علي بن الحسين بن علي ابن ابى طالب فسموه الصادق، فانه سيكون في ولده سمي له يدعي الاءمامة بغير حقها ويسمى كذابا.


1. Ali Bin Ahmad Bin Muhammad narrated to us, from Muhammad Bin Haroun Al Sowfy, from Abu Bakr Ubeydullah Bin Musa Al Habaal Al Tabary, from Muhammad Ibn Al Husayn Al Khashaab, from Muhammad Bin Al Haseyn, from Al Mufazzal Bin Umar, from Ibn Hamza Sabit Bin Dinaar Al Sumaly, (It has been narrated) from Ali (a.s.) Bin Al-Husayn (a.s.), from his (a.s.) father (a.s.), from his (a.s.) grandfather (a.s.) having said: ‘Rasool-Allah (saww) said: ‘When my (saww) son (a.s.) Ja’far (a.s.) Bin Muhammad (a.s.) Bin Ali (a.s.) Bin Al-Husayn (a.s.) Bin Ali (a.s.) Ibn Abu Talib (a.s.) is appears (to the World), so name him (a.s.) as ‘Al-Sadiq’, for there would be a child in his (a.s.) son with a name of his (a.s.), who would be calling to the Imamate without having its right to do so, and he should be called ‘Kazaaba’ (The liar)’.




حدثنا محمد بن موسى بن المتوكل رضى الله عنه قال: حدثنا علي بن الحسين السعد آبادى عن احمد بن محمد بن خالد عن ابيه قال: حدثنا أبو احمد محمد بن زباد الازدي قال سمعت مالك بن أنس فقيه المدينة يقول كنت ادخل إلى الصادق جعفر بن محمد عليهما السلام فيقدم لى مخدة ويعرف لى قدرا ويقول يا مالك إنى أحبك فكنت اسر بذلك واحمد الله تعالى عليه قال وكان " ع " لا يخلو من احد ثلاث خصال أما صايما واما قايما واما ذاكرا وكان من عظماء العباد واكابر الزهاد الذين يخشون الله عزوجل وكان كثير الحديث طيب المجالسة كثير الفوائد فإذا قال قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله أخضر مرة واصفر أخرى حتى ينكره من يعرفه ولقد حججت معه سنة فلما استوت به راحلته عند الاحرام كان كلماهم بالتلبية انقطع الصوت في حلقه وكاد ان يخر من راحلته فقلت قل يابن رسول الله ولا بذلك من ان تقول فقال يابن ابى عامر كيف اجسر ان اقول لبيك اللهم لبيك واخشى ان يقول تعالى لى لالبيك ولاسعديك.


2. Muhammad Bin Musa Bin Al Mutawakkal narrated to us, from Ali Bin Al Husayn Al Sa’ad Abady, from Ahmad Bin Muhammad Bin Khalid, from his father, from Abu Ahmad Muhammad Bin Zabaad Al Azdy who said, ‘I heard Maalik Bin Anas, a jurist of Al Medina saying, ‘I used to go over to Al Sadiq Ja’far Bin Muhammad (a.s.), so he (a.s.) would provide a pillow for me, and exalt my worth for me, and he (a.s.) was saying: ‘O Maalik! I (a.s.) love you’. I used to rejoice due to that and Praise Allah (azwj) the High over it. And he (a.s.) was never devoid of one of the three qualities – either he (a.s.) was Fasting, or standing (in Prayer), or in Remembrance (of Allah (azwj)). And he (a.s.) was one of the greatest worshippers, and of great ascetism, who used to fear Allah (azwj) Mighty and Majestic, and he (a.s.) was of numerous Ahadeeth, goodly gatherings, and abundant benefits. So whenever he (a.s.) said: ‘Rasool-Allah (saww) said’ – (his (a.s.) colour would change) sometimes green, sometimes yellow, to the extent that the one who knew him (a.s.) would deny him (a.s.). And I performed Hajj with him (a.s.) one year, so when I prepared his (a.s.) ride for him (a.s.) whilst in Ihraam, when he (a.s.) exclaimed Talbiyya (Allahumma Labbayk), his (a.s.) voice got cut-off in his (a.s.) throat, and he (a.s.) almost fell off from his (a.s.) ride’. So I said, ‘Say it, O son (a.s.) of Rasool-Allah (saww), and that cannot be without saying it’. So he (a.s.) said: ‘O cousin! How can I (a.s.) have the audacity that I (a.s.) should say: ‘Here I (a.s.) am at Your (azwj) service O Allah (azwj), here I (a.s.) am!, (I (a.s.) fear) that the High (azwj) would be Saying to me (a.s.): “I (azwj) am her for you (a.s.) and for your (a.s.) Assistance”.
