- عنه، عن جعفر بن محمد، عن ابن القداح، عن أبى عبد الله (ع) عن أبيه (ع) أن قوما مشاة أدركهم النبي صلى الله عليه وآله فشكوا إليه شدة المشى، فقال لهم: " استعينوا بالنسل.


1. From him, from Ja’far Bin Muhammad, from Ibn Al Qadah, (It has been narrated) from Abu Abdullah (a.s.), from his (a.s.) father (a.s.) having said: ‘The Prophet (saww) met a group of the infantry, so they complained to him (saww) of the hardship of walking, so Rasool-Allha (saww) said to them: ‘Seek assistance of the cattle’.




عنه، عن محمد بن إسماعيل بن بزيع، عن منذر بن جفير، عن يحيى بن طلحة النهدي، قال: قال لنا أبو عبد الله (ع): سيروا وانسلوا فانه أخف عليكم.


2. From him, from Muhammad Bin Ismail Bin Bazi’e, from Manzar Bin Jufeyr, from Yahya Bin Talha Al Nahdy who said, ‘Abu Abdullah (a.s.) said to us: ‘Go on and trot (brisk walk) for it would be lighter for you’.




عنه، عن ابن فضال، عن القداح، عن أبى عبد الله (ع) عن أبيه (ع) أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله رأى قوما قد جهدهم المشى، فقال: " أخببوا انسلوا "، ففعلوا فذهب عنهم الاعياء.


3. From him, from Ibn Fazaal, from Al Qadah, (It has been narrated) from Abu Abdullah (a.s.), from his (a.s.) father (a.s.) having said: ‘Rasool-Allah (saww) saw a group of people who were making effort in their walking, so he (saww) said: ‘Trot briskly, sneakily’. So they did that, and the tiredness went away from them’.




عنه، عن ابن محبوب، عن هشام بن سالم، عن أبى عبد الله (ع) قال: جاءت المشاة إلى النبي صلى الله عليه وآله فشكوا إليه الاعياء، فقال: " عليكم بالنسلان ". ففعلوا، فذهب عنهم الاعياء، فكأنما نشطوا من عقال. عنه، عن ابن محبوب، عن عبد الله بن سنان، عن أبى عبد الله (ع) مثله إلا أنه قال: " عليكم بالنسلان فانه يذهب بالاعياء ويقطع الطريق ".


4. From him, from Ibn Mahboub, from Hisham Bin Salim, Abu Abdullah (a.s.) has said: ‘The infantry came to the Prophet (saww) and complained to him (saww) of the fatigue, so he (saww) said: ‘It is upon you with the trotting’. So they did that, and their fatigue went away from them. It was as if they had been active from the cramp’.




وعنه، عن محمد بن على، عن عبد الرحمان بن أبى هاشم، عن إبراهيم بن يحيى المدنى، عن أبى عبد الله (ع) قال: راح رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله من كراع الغميم فصف له المشاة وقالوا: نتعرض لدعوته فقال صلى الله عليه وآله: " اللهم أعطهم أجرهم، وقوهم. " ثم قال: " لو استعنتم بالنسلان لخفف أجسامكم وقطعتم الطريق " ففعلوا فخفف أجسامهم.


5. And from him, from Muhammad Bin Ali, from Abdul Rahman Bin Abu Hashim, from Ibrahim Bin Yahya Al Madany, Abu Abdullah (a.s.) has narrated that Rasool-Allah (saww) rested from tending the sheep, so the infantry formed a row to him (saww) and said, ‘We are exposed to his (saww) call’ (i.e. complained). So he (saww) said: ‘O Allah ! Give them their Recompense, and Protect them’. Then Rasool-Allah (saww) said: ‘If you had resorted to the trotting, your bodies would have been lightened and you would have cut the road (finished your journey quicker)’.




عنه، عن الحجال، عن ابن إسحاق المكى قال: تعرضت المشاة للنبى صلى الله عليه وآله بكراع الغميم ليدعو لهم فدعا لهم وقال خيرا وقال: " عليكم بالنسلان والبكور وشئ من الدلج، فان الارض تطوى بالليل.


6. From him, from Al Hajaal, from Ibn Is’haq Al Makky who said, ‘The infantry made a representation to the Prophet (saww) to seek blessings. So he (saww) supplicated for them and said good (words), and said: ‘It is on you for the trotting, and (eating) what is permitted, and (marching) something from the end part of the night, for the land coils up at night’.
