حدثنا أبى رضى الله عنه قال: حدثنا سعد بن عبد الله، عن احمد بن محمد بن عيسى، عن الحسن بن علي الوشا عن الرضا عليه السلام قال: سمعته يقول قال أبى عليه السلام، قال أبو عبد الله عليه السلام، ان الله عز وجل قال لنوح: (أنه ليس من أهلك) لانه كان مخالفا له وجعل من اتبعه من أهله، قال: وسألني كيف تقرؤن هذه الآية في ابن نوح؟ فقلت تقرؤها الناس على وجهين، انه عمل غير صالح، وانه عمل غير صالح، فقال كذبوا هو إبنه، ولكن الله عزوجل نفاه عنه حين خالفه في دينه.

1. My father narrated to me, from Sa;ad Bin Abdullah, from Ahmad Bin Muhammad Bin Isa, from Al Hassan Bin Ali Al Washa, (The narrator says), ‘I heard Al-Ridha (a.s.) saying: ‘I (a.s.) heard my (a.s.) father (a.s.) saying: ‘Abu Abdullah (a.s.) said that Allah (azwj) Mighty and Majestic Said to Noah (as): “[11:46] He is not from your family because he was an opponent of his (as), and the ones who followed him (as) would be (considered to be) from his (as) family’. (The narrator) said, ‘And he (a.s.) asked me: ‘How are they (people) reading this Verse with regards to the son of Noah (as)?’ So I said, ‘The people are reading it upon two aspects – [11:46] he is (the doer of) other than righteous deeds; it was a deed, not righteous’. So he (a.s.) said: ‘They are lying! He was (indeed) his (as) son, but Allah (azwj) Mighty and Majestic Negated him from him (as) when he opposed him (as) in his (as) Religion’.
