حدثنا أبي رضي الله عنه قال حدثنا أحمد بن ادريس عن محمد بن أحمد ابن يحيى بن عمران الاشعري عن محمد بن معروف عن أخيه عمر عن جعفر بن عقبة عن أبي الحسن عليه السلام قال: ان عليا عليه السلام لم يبت بمكة بعد إذ هاجر منها حتى قبضه الله عزوجل إليه، قال: قلت له ولم ذاك؟ قال: يكره ان يبيت بارض قد هاجر منها رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله فكان يصلي العصر ويخرج منها ويبيت بغيرها.

1. My father narrated to us, from Ahmad Bin Idrees, from Muhammad Bin Ahmad Ibn Yahya Bin Imran Al Ashary, from Muhammad Bin Marouf, from his brother Umar, from Ja’far Bin Uqba, (It has been narrated) from Abu Al-Hassan (a.s.) having said: ‘Ali (a.s.) did not sleep at Makkah after having emigrated from it until Allah Mighty and Majestic Caused him (a.s.) to pass away’. I said, ‘And why is that?’ He (a.s.) said: ‘He (a.s.) disliked that he should sleep in the land from which Rasool-Allah (saww) had to emigrate from. So he (a.s.) used to Pray Al-Asr (Prayer) and go out from it, and spend the night elsewhere’.
