أبي رحمه الله قال: حدثنا سعد بن عبد الله عن أبي بصير عن أبي عبد الله عليه السلام قال: سألته عن الخناس قال: ان ابليس يلتقم القلب، فإذا ذكر الله خنس فلذلك سمي الخناس.

1. My father said, ‘Sa’ad Bin Abdullah narrated to us, from Abu Baseer, (It has been narrated) from Abu Abdullah (a.s.), said, I asked him (a.s.) about the withdrawer (الخناس). He (a.s.) said: ‘Iblees (la) makes a morsel of the heart. So when Allah (azwj) is Mentioned, he (la) withdraws. Thus, it was due to that he (la) was named as ‘Al-Khannaas’ (the withdrawer)’.
