Back to book

عنه، عن أبيه، عن النضر بن سويد، عن الحلبي، عن أبي بصير، قال: سألت أبا عبد الله عليه السلام عن قول الله تبارك وتعالى: " ومن يؤت الحكمة فقد أوتى خيرا كثيرا " فقال: هي طاعة الله ومعرفة الامام.

1. From him, from his father, from Al Nazar Bin Suweyd, from Al Halby, from Abu Baseer who said, ‘I asked Abu Abdullah (a.s.) about the Words of Allah (azwj) Blessed and High [2:269] and whoever is Give the Wisdom, he indeed is Given a lot of good. So he (a.s.) said: ‘It is the obedience to Allah (azwj) and the recognition of the Imam (a.s.)’.

عنه، عن أبيه، عن ابن أبي عمير، عن جميل، عن زرارة، عن أبي جعفر عليه السلام، قال: لا تطعم النار واحدا وصف هذا الامر.

2. From him, from his father, from Ibn Abu Umeyr, from Jameel, from Zarara, (It has been narrated) from Abu Ja’far (a.s.) having said: ‘The Fire will not consume anyone attributed with this matter (Al-Wilayah)’.

عنه، عن أبيه، عن النضر، عن الحلبي، عن أبي المغرا، عن أبي جعفر عليه السلام، قال: اني لاعلم أن هذا الحب الذي تحبونا ليس بشئ صنعتموه ولكن الله صنعه.

3. From him, from his father, from Al Nazar, from A Halby, from Abu Al Magra, (It has been narrated) from Abu Ja’far (a.s.) having said: ‘I (a.s.) know very well that this love by which you are loving us (a.s.), there is nothing which you have made it, but it is Allah (azwj) who has Made it’.

عنه، عن ابن فضال، عن بكار بن أبي بكر الحضرمي، قال: قيل لابي جعفر عليه السلام: ان عكرمة مولى ابن عباس قد حضرته الوفاة، قال فانتقل ثم قال: ان أدركته علمته كلاما لم تطعمه النار فدخل عليه داخل فقال: قد هلك (قال( فقال له أبي: فعلمناه، فقال: والله ما هو الا هذا الامر الذي أنتم عليه.

4. From him, from Ibn Fazaal, from Bakaar Bin Abu Bakr Al Hazramy who said, ‘It was said to Abu Ja’far (a.s.), ‘Akrama, a slave of the Clan of Abbas, death had presented itself to him. He (a.s.) said: ‘So he has died’. Then he (a.s.) said: ‘I (a.s.) had made him understand, and taught him certain words so that the Fire would not consume him’. An entering one entered and said, ‘He has died’. My father said to him, ‘We have made it known to him (a.s.)’. So he (a.s.) said: ‘By Allah (azwj)! He was not on anything but on this matter which you all are upon (Al-Wilayah)’.

وعنه، عن أبيه، عن النضر بن سويد، عن يحيى الحلبي، عن أيوب بن حر، عن أبي بكر قال: كنا عنده ومعنا عبد الله بن عجلان، فقال عبد الله بن عجلان: معنا رجل يعرف ما نعرف، ويقال: انه ولد زنا، فقال: ما تقول؟ - فقلت: ان ذلك ليقال له، فقال: ان كان ذلك كذلك بنى له بيت في النار من صدر، يرد عنه وهج جهنم ويؤتى برزقه.

5. And from him, from his father, from Al Nazar Bin Suweyd, from Yahya Al Halby, from Ayoub Bin Hurr, from Abu Bakr who said, ‘We were in his (a.s.) presence and with us was Abdullah Bin Ajlaan. So Abdullah Bin Ajlaan said, ‘With us is a man who understands what we understand, and it is said that he is a son of adultery (bastard)’. So he (a.s.) said: ‘What are you saying?’ So I said, ‘That is what is said about him’. So he (a.s.) said: ‘If that is like that, there has been built for him a house in the Fire to be Given out. He is shown the Glimpse of Hell and his Purgatory is brought to him’.

عنه، عن بعض أصحابنا، رفعه في قول الله تبارك وتعالى " ولتكبروا الله على ما هديكم ولعلكم تشكرون " قال: الشكر المعرفة، وفي قوله " ولا يرضى لعباده الكفر و ان تشكر وايرضه لكم " فقال: الكفر ههنا الخلاف، والشكر الولاية والمعرفة.

6. From him, from one of our companions, raising it, (It has been narrated) regarding the Words of Allah (azwj) Blessed and High [2:185] and that you should exclaim the Greatness of Allah for His having Guided you and that you may give thanks. He (a.s.) said: ‘The thanks is the recognition’. And regarding His (azwj) Words [39:7] and He is not Pleased with disbelief being in His servants; and if you are thankful, He is Pleased with you, so he (a.s.) said: ‘The ‘disbelief’ over here is the opposition, and the ‘thanks’ is the Wilayah and the recognition (المعرفة)’.
