أبي رحمه الله قال: حدثنا سعد بن عبد الله عن أحمد بن أبي عبد الله عن أبيه عن أحمد بن النضر عن محمد بن مروان عن حريز عن الضحاك بن مزاحم قال: سئل علي عليه السلام عن الطارق، قال: هو احسن نجم السماء، وليس تعرفه الناس، وانما سمي الطارق لانه يطرق نوره سماء سماءا إلى سبع سموات، ثم يطرق راجعا حتى يرجع إلى مكانه.

My father said, ‘Sa’ad Bin Abdullah narrated to us, from Ahmad Bin Abu Abdullah, from his father, from Ahmad Bin Al Nazar, from Muhammad Bin Marwan, from Hareyz, from Al Zahaak Bin Mazahim who said, ‘Ali (a.s.) was asked about Al-Tariq. He (a.s.) said: ‘It is the best star of the sky, and the people do not recognise it. But rather, Al-Tariq is named (as such) because its light hits the sky after sky, up to the seventh sky, then it bounces back until it returns to its place’.
