Back to book

عنه، عن علي بن أسباط، عن عيينة بياع القصب، عن أبي عبد الله عليه السلام قال: والله لنعم الاسم الذي منحكم الله ما دمتم تأخذون بقولنا ولا تكذبون علينا قال: و قال لي أبو عبد الله عليه السلام هذا القول اني كنت خبرته ان رجلا قال لي: اياك أن تكون رافضيا.


1. From him, from Ali Bin Asbaat, from Ayayna Bayaa Al Qasab, (It has been narrated) from Abu Abdullah (a.s.) having said: ‘By Allah (azwj)! It is a good name (Al-Rafizi) granted (to you for the Sake) of Allah (azwj) so long as you are taking by our (a.s.) speech, and are not belying against us (a.s.)’. He (the narrator) said, ‘And Abu Abdullah (a.s.) said to me: ‘This word (Al-Rafizi), I (a.s.) had experienced it when a man said to me (a.s.) ‘Beware of becoming a Rafizi’.




عنه، عن يعقوب بن يزيد، عن صفوان بن يحيى، عن أبي أسامة زيد الشحام، عن أبي الجارود قال: أصم الله أذنيه كما أعمى عينيه ان لم يكن سمع أبا جعفر عليه السلام يقول: ان فلانا سمانا باسم، قال: وما ذاك الاسم؟ - قال: سمانا الرافضة، فقال أبو جعفر عليه السلام بيده إلى صدره: " وأنا من الرافضة وهو منى " قالها ثلاثا


2. From him, from Yaqoub Bin Yazeed, from Safwaan Bin yahya, from Abu Asama Zayd Al Shahaam, from Abu Al Jaroud who said, ‘May Allah (azwj) Deafen his ears just as He (azwj) would Blind his eyes, had I not heard Abu Ja’far (a.s.) saying when he (someone) said, ‘So and so has named us with a name’. He (a.s.) said: ‘And what is that name?’ He said ‘He named us as ‘Al-Rafizi’ (The rejecters)’. So Abu Ja’far (a.s.) said by gesturing with his (a.s.) hand to his (a.s.) own chest: ‘And I (a.s.) am (also) from Al-Rafizi, and he (it?) is from me’. He (a.s.) said it three times’.




عنه، عن يعقوب بن يزيد، عن الحسن بن محبوب، عن محمد بن سليمان الديلمي، عن رجلين، عن أبي بصير، قال: قلت لابي جعفر عليه السلام: جعلت فداك اسم سمينا به استحلت به الولادة دماءنا وأموالنا وعذابنا، قال: وما هو؟ - قال: الرافضة، فقال أبو جعفر عليه السلام: ان سبعين رجلا من عسكر فرعون رفضوا فرعون فأتوا موسى عليه السلام فلم يكن في قوم موسى عليه السلام أحد أشد اجتهادا ولا أشد حبا لهارون منهم فسماهم قوم موسى الرافضة، فأوحى ألله إلى موسى: أن ثبت لهم هذا الاسم في التوراة فانى قد نحلتهم وذلك اسم قد نحلكموه الله.


3. From him, from Yaqoub Bin Yazeed, from Al Hassan Bin Mahboub, from Muhammad Bin Suleyman Al Dalaymy, from two men, from Abu Baseer who said, ‘I said to Abu Abdullah (a.s.), ‘May I be sacrificed for you (a.s.)! A name which we have been named with, due to which our births, and our blood, and our wealth, and our suffering has been made permissible (for them)’. The Imam (a.s.) said: ‘And what is it?’ He said, ‘Al Rafizi’ (The rejecters)’. So Abu Ja’far (a.s.) said: ‘Seventy men from the army of Pharaoh (la) rejected Pharaoh (la), so they came to Musa (as). There was none among the people of Musa (a.s.) more intense in his struggle, nor more intense for his love for Haroun (as), than them. So the people of Musa (as) called them Al-Rafizi. So Allah (azwj) Revealed unto Musa (as): “This name has been Affirmed for them in the Torah, for it is a Name which I (azwj) have Granted it to them”. And that is a name which Allah (azwj) has Granted it to you’.
