حدثنا أحمد بن محمد بن عيسى بن علي بن الحسين بن علي بن الحسين بن علي بن أبى طالب قال حدثنا أبو عبد الله محمد بن إبراهيم بن اسباط قال حدثنا أحمد بن محمد بن زياد القطان قال حدثنا أبو الطيب احمد بن محمد بن عبد الله قال حدثنا عيسى بن جعفر بن محمد بن عبد الله بن محمد بن عمر بن علي بن أبى طالب، عن آبائه، عن عمر بن علي، عن أبيه علي بن أبى طالب عليه السلام ان النبي صلى الله عليه وآله سأل مما خلق الله جل جلاله العقل قال: خلقه ملك له رؤس بعدد الخلائق من خلق ومن يخلق إلى يوم القيامة ولكل رأس وجه ولكل آدمى رأس من رؤس العقل واسم ذلك الانسان على وجه ذلك الرأس مكتوب وعلى كل وجه ستر ملقى لا يكشف ذلك الستر من ذلك الوجه حتى يولد هذا المولود ويبلغ حد الرجال أو حدالنساء فإذا بلغ كشف ذلك الستر فيقع في قلب هذا الانسان نور فيفهم الفريضة والسنة والجيد والردي ألا ومثل العقل في القلب كمثل السراج في وسط البيت.


1. Ahmad Bin Muhammad Bin Isa Bin Ali Bin Al Husayn Bin Ali Bin Al Husayn Bin Ali Bin Abu Talib (asws) narrated to us, from Abu Abdullah Muhammad Bin Ibrahim Bin Asbaat, from Ahmad Bin Muhammad Bin Ziyad Al Qatan, from Abu Al Tayb Ahmad Bin Muhammad Bin Abdullah, from Isa Bin Ja’far Bin Muhammad Bin Abdullah Bin Muhammad Bin Umar son of Ali Bin Abu Talib (asws), from his forefathers, from Umar Bin Ali (asws), (It has been narrated) from his (asws) father Ali (asws) Bin Abu Talib (asws) having said: ‘The Prophet (saww) was asked from what did Allah (azwj), Majestic is His (azwj) Majesty, Create the intellect. He (saww) said: ‘Allah (azwj) Created it as an Angel which had heads of the number of the creatures who had been Created and ones who would be Created up to the Day of Judgement. And for each of the heads was a face to it, and for every top head was a head of the intellect, and the name of that human being is inscribed upon the face of that head; and on every face is a veil which is hung over it, and that veil does not get removed from that face until he is born and reached the limit of the man or the limit of a woman. So when he reaches that, that veil is removed, and there occurs in the heart of this human being, a Light, so he understands the Obligations, and the Sunnah, and the good and the bad. Indeed! The example of the intellect in the heart is like the example of the lantern in the middle of the house’.
