حدثنا محمد بن موسى بن المتوكل رحمه الله قال حدثنا علي بن الحسين السعد آبادي عن أحمد بن أبي عبد الله عن ابن محبوب عن عاصم بن حميد عن علي ابن المغيرة قال: قلت لابي عبد الله عليه السلام القوم يكونون في البلد يقع فيها الموت ألهم أن يتحولوا عنها إلى غيرها؟ قال: نعم، قلت: بلغنا ان رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله عاب قوما بذلك، فقال اولئك كانوا رتبة بازاء العدو، فامرهم رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله ان يثبتوا في مواضعهم، ولا يتحولوا منه إلى غيره، فلما وقع فيهم الموت تحولوا من ذلك المكان إلى غيره، فكان تحويلهم من ذلك المكان إلى غيره كالفرار من الزحف


1. Muhammad Bin Musa Bin Al Mutawakkal narrated to us, from Ali Bin Al Husayn Al Sa’ad Abady, from Ahmad Bin Abu Abdullah, from Ibn Mahboub, from Aasim Bin Hameed, from Ali Ibn Al Mugheira who said, ‘I said to Abu Abdullah (a.s.), ‘The people who happen to be in the city in which the death occurs (due to an epidemic), is it for them to transfer from it to another?’ He (a.s.) said : ‘Yes’. I said, ‘It has reached us that Rasool-Allah (saww) faulted a people by that’. So he (a.s.) said: ‘Those were the rank who faced the enemy, so Rasool-Allah (saww) ordered them that they remain steadfast in their places, and not to transfer from it to another. So when the death (by epidemic) occurred among them, they transferred from that place to another. So, their transference from that place to another would have been like the fleeing from the army’.




وبهذا الاسناد عن ابن محبوب عن جميل بن صالح عن أبي مريم عن أبي جعفر (ع) في قوله (وأرسل عليهم طيرا أبابيل ترميهم بحجارة من سجيل) فقال هؤلاء أهل مدينة كانت على ساحل البحر إلى المشرق فيما بين اليمامة والبحرين يخيفون السبيل ويأتون المنكر، فارسل عليهم طيرا جائتهم من قبل البحر رؤسها كامثال رؤس السباع، وأبصارها كابصار السباع من الطير مع كل طير ثلاثة أحجار، حجران في مخالبه، وحجر في منقاره، فجعلت ترميهم بها حتى جدرت أجسادهم فقتلهم الله تعالى بها، وما كانوا قبل ذلك رأوا شيئا من ذلك الطير ولا شيئا من الجدري، ومن أفلت منهم انطلقوا حتى بلغوا حضر موت واد باليمن أرسل الله تعالى عليهم سيلا فغرقهم، ولا رأوا في ذلك الوادي ماء قبل ذلك فلذلك سمي حضر موت حين ما توافيه.


2. And by this chain, from Ibn Mahboub, from Jameel Bin Salih, from Abu Maryam, (It has been narrated) from Abu Ja’far (a.s.) regarding His (azwj) Words [105:3] And send down (to prey) upon them birds in flocks, so he (a.s.) said: ‘They were the people of a city which was at the coast of the sea to the east in what is between Al-Yamama and Al-Bahrain, frightening upon the way, and coming to the evil. So Allah (azwj) Sent bird upon them, which came to them from the sea. Their heads were like the heads of the predators, and their claws were like the claws of the predatory birds. With every bird were three stones, two stones in their claws, and a stone in its beak. So they went on to pelt these until their bodies became blistered. Thus, Allah (azwj) Killed them by it, and there was not seen before that anything from those birds, nor anything from such blisters; and the ones who escaped from them, went away until they reached Hazramout, a valley at Yemen. Allah (azwj) the High Sent against them a torrent, so they were drowned. And there had not been seen in that valley before that, therefore it was due to that is has been named as Hazramout, there they had died’.
