أبي رحمه الله قال حدثنا سعد بن عبد الله عن ابراهيم بن مهزيار عن أخيه علي باسناده قال قال أبو الحسن (ع) في الطائف أتدري لم سمي الطايف؟ قلت لا فقال إن ابراهيم (ع) دعا ربه أن يرزق أهله من كل الثمرات فقطع لهم قطعة من الاردن فأقبلت حتى طافت بالبيت سبعا ثم أقرها الله في موضعها فانما سميت الطائف لطوافه بالبيت.

1. My father said, ‘Sa’ad Bin Abdullah narrated to us, from Ibrahim Bin Mahziyar, from his brother Ali, by his chain, said, ‘Abu Al-Hassan (a.s.) said with regards to Al-Taif: ‘Do you know why it is named as Al-Taif?’ I said, ‘No’. So he (a.s.) said : ‘Ibrahim (as)supplicated to his (as)Lord (azwj) that He (azwj) should Sustain his (as)family from every (type of) fruit. So a piece of land from Jordan was cut-off for him (as), until it circumambulated by the House (Kabah) seven (circuits). Then Allah (azwj) Settled it in its place. So it was named as Al-Taif due to it circumambulating of the House (Kabah)’.

أخبرني علي بن حاتم قال: حدثنا محمد بن جعفر وعلي بن سليمان قالا حدثنا أحمد بن محمد قال قال الرضا (ع) أتدري لم سميت الطائف طائفا؟ قلت: لا قال: لان الله تعالى لما ادعاه ابراهيم (ع) أن يرزق أهله من كل الثمرات أمر بقطعة من الاردن فسارت بثمارها حتى طافت بالبيت ثم أمرها ان تنصرف إلى هذا الموضع الذي سمي الطائف فلذلك سمي الطائف.

2. Ali Bin Hatim informed me, from Muhammad Bin Ja’far and Ali Bin Suleyman who both said it was narrated by Ahmad Bin Muhammad who said, ‘Al-Ridha (a.s.) said: ‘Do you know why Al-Taif was named as Taif?’ I said, ‘No’. He (a.s.) said: ‘Because when Allah (azwj) the High was supplicated to by Ibrahim (as)that He (azwj) should Sustain his (as)family from every fruit, Commanded a piece of land from Jordan, so it came with its fruits and circumambulated the House (Kabah). Then He (azwj) Commanded it that it should leave to be at this place which is called Al-Taif. Thus, it was due to that (Tawaaf), it was named as Taif’.
