Back to book

عنه، عن أبيه، عن فضالة بن أيوب، عن عمرو بن أبان الكلبي، عن جابر بن يزيد الجعفي، قال: تنفست بين يدي أبي جعفر عليه السلام، ثم قلت: يابن رسول الله، أهتم من غير مصيبة تصيبني أو أمر ينزل بي حتى يعرف ذلك أهلي في وجهي ويعرفه صديقي، قال: نعم يا جابر، قلت: ومم ذاك يابن رسول الله؟ - قال: وما تصنع بذاك؟ - قلت: أحب أن أعلمه، فقال: يا جابر، ان الله خلق المؤمن من طينة الجنان، وأجرى فيهم من ريح روحه فلذلك، المؤمن أخو المؤمن لابيه وأمه، فإذا أصاب تلك الارواح في بلد من البلدان شئ حزنت عليه الارواح لانها منه.


1. From him, from his father, from Fazalat Bin Ayoub, from Amro Bin Abaan Al Kalby, (It has been narrated) from Jabir Bin Yazeed Al-Ju’fy who said, ‘I sighed in front of Abu Ja’far (asws), then I said, ‘O son (asws) of Rasool-Allah (saww)! I get aggrieved without any difficulty having struck me, or a matter having descended upon me, to the extent that my family members recognise that in my face, and my friends (also) recognise it’. The Imam (asws) said: ‘Yes, O Jabir’. I said, ‘And why is that, O son (asws) of Rasool-Allah (saww)?’ He (asws) said: ‘And what would you do with (knowing) that?’ I said, ‘I would like to know it’. So he (asws) said: ‘O Jabir! Allah (azwj) Created the Believer from a clay of the Gardens (of Paradise), and Made to flow within them a wind and His (azwj) Spirit, so it is due to that, that the Believer is a brother of the Believer, as of (the same) father and the mother. So if those spirits are hit by something in a city from the cities, the (other) spirits grieve over it, because they are from it (the same origin)’.




عنه، عن محمد بن علي، عن محمد بن الفضيل، عن أبي حمزة الثمالي، عن أبي جعفر عليه السلام، قال: المؤمن أخو المؤمن لابيه وأمه، لان الله خلق طينتهما من سبع سماوات وهي من طينة الجنان، ثم تلا: " رحماء بينهم. " فهل يكون الرحم الا برا وصولا؟.


2. From him, from Muhammad Bin Ali, from Muhammad Bin Al Fazeyl, from Abu Hamza Al Sumaly, (It has been narrated) from Abu Ja’far (asws) having said: ‘The Believer is a brother of the Believer, as (having the same) father and the mother, because Allah (azwj) Created their clay, both of them, from the seventh sky, and it is the clay of the Gardens’. Then he (asws) recited [48:29] compassionate among themselves. He (asws) said: ‘So can there be compassion except by righteousness, good relationships?’ (وفي حديث آخر): " وأجرى فيهما من روح رحمته ". (And in another Hadeeth) ‘And Made to flow within both of them a Spirit of His (azwj) Mercy’.




وعنه، عن أبي عبد الله أحمد بن محمد السياري وحسن بن معاوية، عن محمد بن الفضيل، عن أبي حمزة الثمالى، عن أبي جعفر عليه السلام، قال: المؤمن أخو المؤمن لابيه وامه، وذلك ان الله تبارك وتعالى خلق المؤمن من طينة جنان السموات وأجرى فيهم من روح رحمته فلذلك هو أخوه لابيه وأمه.


3. And form him, from Abu Abdullah Ahmad Bin Muhammad Al Sayyari and Hasan Bin Muawiya, from Muhammad Bin Al Fazeyl, from Abu Hamza Al Sumaly, (It has been narrated) from Abu Ja’far (asws) having said: ‘The Believer is a brother of the Believer (as having the same) the father and the mother, and that is that Allah (azwj) Blessed and High Created the Believer from a clay of the Gardens of the skies and Made to flow within them from a Spirit of His (azwj) Mercy. Therefore, it is due to that, he is his brother (as having the same) the father and the mother’.
