2. Creation of the Believer from Illiyeen

Back to book

أحمد، عن أبيه، عن أبي نهشل، قال: حدثنى محمد بن اسماعيل، عن أبي - حمزة الثمالى، قال: سمعت أبا عبد الله عليه السلام يقول: ان الله تبارك وتعالى خلقنا من أعلى عليين، وخلق قلوب شيعتنا مما خلقنا منه، وخلق أبدانهم من دون ذلك، فقلوبهم تهوى الينا، لانها خلقت مما خلقنا منه، ثم تلا هذه الآية: " كلا ان كتاب الابرار لفى عليين، وما أدريك ما عليون، كتاب مرقوم يشهده المقربون. "


1. Ahmad, from his father, from Abu Nahshal, from Muhammad Bin Ismail, from Abu Hamza Al Sumaly who said, ‘I heard Abu Abdullah (asws) saying: ‘Allah (azwj) Blessed and High Created us (asws) from the High Illiyeen, and Created the hearts of our (asws) Shiah from what He (azwj) Created us (asws) from, and Created their bodies from besides that. Their hearts incline towards us (asws), because these have been Created from what we (asws) have been Created from’. Then he (asws) recited these Verses [83:18] But! Most surely the record of the righteous shall be in the Iliyeen [83:19] And what will make you know what the highest Iliyeen is? [83:20] It is a written book, [83:21] Those of Proximity witness it’.




عنه، عن أبيه، عن حماد بن عيسى الجهنى، عن ربعي بن عبد الله الهذلي، عمن ذكره، عن علي بن الحسين عليهما السلام، قال: ان الله خلق النبيين من طينة عليين قلوبهم وأبدانهم، وخلق قلوب المؤمنين من تلك الطينة وخلق أبدان المؤمنين من دون ذلك.


2. From him, from his father, from Hamaad Bin Isa Al Jahny, from Rabi’e Bin Abdullah Al Hazly, from the one who mentioned it, (It has been narrated) from Ali (asws) Bin Al-Husayn (asws) having said: ‘Allah (azwj) Created the Prophets (as), their (as) hearts and their bodies, from the clay of Illiyeen; and Created the hearts of the Believer from that very clay, and Created the bodies of the Believers from besides that’.
