حدثنا محمد بن الحسن بن أحمد بن الوليد رضي الله عنه قال: حدثنا الحسين بن الحسن بن أبان عن الحسين بن سعيد عن فضالة بن أيوب عن معاوية ابن عمار عن أبي عبد الله (ع) قال: ان جبرئيل أتى ابراهيم (ع) فقال تمن يا ابراهيم فكانت تسمى منى فسماها الناس منى.


1. Muhammad Bin Al Hassan Bin Ahmad Bin Al Waleed narrated to us, from Al Husayn Bin Al Hassan Bin Aban, from Al Husayn Bin Saeed, from Fazalat Bin Ayoub, from Muawiya Ibn Amaar, Abu Abdullah (asws) has said: ‘Jibraeel (as) came to Ibrahim (as), so he (as) said: ‘(Make a) wish (تمن), O Ibrahim (as)! Thus, it was named as Mina, and the people called it Mina’.




حدثنا علي بن أحمد رحمه الله قال حدثنا محمد بن أبي عبد الله الكوفي عن محمد بن اسماعيل البرمكي عن علي بن العباس قال: حدثنا القاسم بن الربيع الصحاف عن محمد بن سنان أبا الحسن الرضا (ع) كتب إليه العلة التي من اجلها سميت منى منى ان جبرئيل (ع) قال هناك يا ابراهيم تمن على ربك ما شئت فتمنى ابراهيم في نفسه ان يجعل الله مكان ابنه اسماعيل كبشا يأمره بذبحه فداء له فأعطى مناه.


2. Ali Bin Ahmad narrated to us, from Muhammad Bin Abu Abdullah Al Kufy, from Muhammad Bin Ismail Al Barmakky, from Ali Bin Al Abbas, from Al Qasim Bin Al Rabie Al Sahaaf, (It has been narrated) from Muhammad Bin Sinan that Abu Al-Hassan Al-Reza (asws) wrote to him: ‘The reason due to which Mina is named as Mina is that Jibraeel (as) said: ‘Over there, O Ibrahim (saww)! Make a wish to your (as) Lord (azwj) whatever you (as) so desire to’. So Ibrahim (as) wished within himself (as) that Allah (azwj) should Make a ram to be in place of his (as) son (as) Ismail (as), He (azwj) had Commanded him (as) to slaughter. So he (as) supplicated to Him (azwj), and his (as) wish was Granted’.
