Back to book

عنه، عن محمد بن علي، عن المفضل بن صالح، عن جابر، عن أبي جعفر عليه السلام، قال: لا يقتل الانبياء ولا أولاد الانبياء الا أولاد الزنا.


1. From him, from Muhammad Bin Ali, from Al Mufazzal Bin Salih, from Jabir, (It has been narrated) from Abu Ja’far (asws) having said: ‘No one murdered the Prophets (as), nor the children of the Prophets (as) except the children of adultery (bastards)’.




عنه، عن أبيه أبي عبد الله البرقي، عن ابن فضال، عن عبد الله بن بكير، عن زرارة قال: سمعت أبا جعفر عليه السلام يقول: لا خير في ولد الزنا ولا في بشره ولا شعره ولا في لحمه ولا في دمه ولا في شئ منه (يعنى ولد الزنا). وفي رواية أبي خديجة، عن أبي - عبد الله عليه السلام، قال: ان كان أحد من أولاد الزنا نجا لنجا سائح بني اسرائيل، فقيل له: وما سائح بنى اسرائيل؟ - قال: كان عابدا، فقيل له: ان ولد الزنا لا يطيب أبدا ولا يقبل الله منه عملا، قال: فخرج يسيح بين الجبال ويقول: ما ذنبي؟.


2. From him, from his father Abu Abdullah Al Barqym from Ibn Fazaal, from Abdullah Bin Bakeyr, from Zarara who said, ‘I heard Abu Ja’far (asws) saying: ‘There is no good in a child born of adultery, neither with his evil, nor in his hair, nor in his flesh, nor in his blood, nor in anything from him (meaning the one born of adultery)’. And in a report of Abu Khadeeja, (It has been narrated) from Abu Abdullah (asws) having said: ‘If there is anyone from the illegitimate children who would be saved, it would be the traveller of the Chidlren of Israel’. So it was said to him (asws), ‘And what is the traveller of the Children of Israel?’ He (asws) said: ‘He was a worshipper’. So it was said to him, ‘One born of adultery will not be good, ever, nor will Allah (azwj) Accept deeds from him’. So he went out travelling between the mountains, and he was saying, ‘What is my sin?’
