Back to book

حدثنا أبى رضى الله عنه قال: حدثنا سعد بن عبد الله، عن احمد بن محمد بن عيسى، عن احمد بن محمد بن أبى نصر البزنطي، عن ابان بن عثمان، عن محمد بن مسلم عن أبى جعفر عليه السلام قال: ان نوحا إنما سمي عبدا شكورا لانه كان يقول إذا أمسى وأصبح: اللهم إنى أشهدك أنه ما أمسى وأصبح بى من نعمة أو عافية في دين، أو دنيا فمنك وحدك لا شريك لك، لك الحمد ولك الشكر بها علي حتى ترضى، وبعد الرضا إلهنا.

1. My father narrated to us, from Sa’ad Bin Abdullah, from Ahmad Bin Muhammad Bin Isa, from Ahmad Bin Muhammad Bin Abu Nasr Al Bazanty, from Aban Bin Usman, from Muhammad Bin Muslim, Abu Ja’far (a.s.) has said: ‘But rather, Noah (as) was named as a grateful servant because he (as) was saying, when it was evening and morning: ‘O Allah (azwj)! I (as) testify to You (azwj), there has not been with me, an evening and a morning, from a Bounty or well being in Religion or world, so it is from You (azwj). You (azwj) are One with no associate for You (azwj). For You (azwj) is the Praise, and for You (azwj) is the thanks for it to be upon me (as), until You (azwj) are Pleased, and (remain) Pleased afterwards, our God!’
