41. The reason due to which a Prophet (as) did not come out from the offspring of Yusuf (as)

Back to book

أبى رحمه الله قال: حدثنا احمد بن إدريس ومحمد بن يحيى العطار عن محمد بن احمد بن يحيى، عن يعقوب بن يزيد، عن غير واحد، رفعوه إلى أبي عبد الله " ع " قال: لما تلقى يوسف يعقوب ترجل له يعقوب ولم يترجل له يوسف فلم ينفصلا من العناق حتى أتاه جبرئيل فقال له: يا يوسف، ترجل لك الصديق، ولم تترجل له، ابسط يدك، فبسطها فخرج نور من راحته، فقال له يوسف: ماهذا؟ قال: هذا آية لا يخرج من عقبك نبي عقوبة.


1. My father said, ‘Ahmad Bin Idrees amd Muhammad Bin Yahya Al Ataar narrated to us, from Muhammd Bin Ahmad Bin Yahya, from Yaqoub Bin Yazeed, from someone else, (The narrator) raising it to Abu Abdullah (a.s.) having said: ‘When Yusuf (as) met up with Yaqoub (as), Yaqoub (as) walked over to him (as), and Yusuf (as) did not walk over to him (as) (to welcome). So they (as) had not even separated from hugging each other, when Jibraeel (as) came to him (as) and said to him (as): ‘O Yusuf (as)! The truthful walked over to you (as), and you (as) did not walk over to him (as). Extend your (as) hand!’ So he (as) extended it, there came out a Light from his (as) palm. So Yusuf (as) said to him (as): ‘What is this?’ He (as) said: ‘This is a Sign that there will not be coming out from your (as) posterity, a Prophet (as), as a Punishment’.




حدثنا محمد بن علي ماجيلويه، عن محمد بن يحيى العطار، عن الحسين ابن الحسن بن أبان، عن محمد بن أورمة، عن محمد بن أبى عمير، عن هشام بن سالم، عن أبى عبد الله " ع " قال: لما أقبل يعقوب إلى مصر خرج يوسف " ع " ليستقبله، فلما رآه يوسف هم بان يترجل ليعقوب، ثم نظر إلى ما هو فيه من الملك، فلم يفعل، فلما سلم على يعقوب نزل عليه جبرئيل فقال له: يا يوسف ان الله تبارك وتعالى يقول لك: ما منعك ان تنزل إلى عبدي الصالح إلا ما أنت فيه ابسط يدك فبسطها فخرج من بين أصابعه نور، فقال له ما هذا يا جبرئيل، فقال هذا آية لا يخرج من صلبك نبي أبدا عقوبة لك بما صنعت بيعقوب إذ لم تنزل إليه.


2. Muhammad Bin Ali Majaylawiya, from Muhammad Bin Yahya Al Ataar, from Al Husayn Ibn Al Hassan Bin Aban, from Muhammad Bin Awrama, from Muhammad Bin Abu Umeyr, from Hisham Bin Salim, Abu Abdullah (a.s.) has said: ‘When Yaqoub (as) came over to Egypt, Yusuf (as) came out to welcome him (as). So when Yusuf (as) saw him (as), he (as) wanted to dismount and walk over to him (as). Then he (as) considered to what (state) he (as) was in, from the kingdom, so he (as) did not do it. So when he (as) greeted Yaqoub (as), Jibraeel (as) descended unto him (as) and said to him (as): ‘O Yusuf (as)! Allah (azwj) Blessed and High is Saying to you (as): “Nothing prevented you (as) from descending to My (azwj) righteous servant, except for what (state) you (as) were in, therefore extend your (as) hand!” So he (as) extended it, and there came out a Light from in between his (as) fingers. So he (as) said to him (as): ‘What is this, O Jibraeel (as)?’ So he (as) said: ‘This is a Sign that there will not be coming out from your (as) posterity, a Prophet (as), ever, as a Punishment for you (as) due to what you (as) have done with Yaqoub (as), when you (as) did not descend to him (as) (out of respect of your (as) father (as)).
