حدثنا محمد بن الحسن بن أحمد بن الوليد رضى الله عنه قال: حدثنا محمد بن الحسن الصفار، عن احمد بن محمد بن عيسى، عن محمد بن اسماعيل، عن حنان بن سدير، عن أبيه قال: قلت لابي جعفر عليه السلام، أرأيت نوحا " ع " حين دعا على قومه فقال: (رب لا تذر على الارض من الكافرين ديارا، إنك ان تذرهم يضلوا عبادك ولا يلدوا إلا فاجرا كفارا) قال عليه السلام: علم انه لا ينجب من بينهم أحد، قال قلت وكيف علم ذلك؟ قال أوحى الله إليه انه لا يؤمن من قومك إلامن قد آمن، فعند هذا دعا عليهم بهذا الدعاء.

1. Muhammad Bin Al Hassan Bin Ahmad Bin Al Waleed narrated to us, from Muhammad Bin Al Hassan Al Saffar, from Ahmad Bin Muhammad Bin Isa, from Muhammad Bin Ismail, from Hanan Bin Sudeyr, from his father who said, ‘I said to Abu Ja’far (a.s.), ‘What is your (a.s.) view of Noah (as) where he (as) supplicated to Allah (azwj) against his (as) people, so he (as) said [71:26] And Nuh said: My Lord! leave not upon the land any dweller from among the unbelievers: [71:27] For surely if Thou leave them they will lead astray Thy servants, and will not beget any but immoral, ungrateful (children)?’ The Imam (a.s.) said: ‘Not one from among them was going to answer him (as)’. I said, ‘And how did he (as) know that?’ The Imam (a.s.) said, ‘Allah (azwj) revealed unto him (as) that no one else is going to believe from your (as) people except the one who has already believed. So then he (as) supplicated against them with this supplication’.
