Back to book

- عنه، عن يحيى بن إبراهيم بن أبى البلاد، عن أبيه، عن الوليد بن صبيح، عن أبى عبد الله (ع) قال: قال لى: أي شئ تطعم عيالك في الشتاء؟ - قلت: اللحم، فإذا لم يكن اللحم فالسمن، فالزيت، قال: فما يمنعك من هذا الكر كور؟ - فانه أصون شئ للجسد كله (يعنى المثلثة). قال: أخبرني بعض أصحابنا يصف المثلثة قال: يؤخذ قفيز أرز، وقفيز حمص، وقفيز حنطة أو باقلى أو غيره من الحبوب، ثم ترض جميعا وتطبخ.

1. From him, from Yahya Bin Ibrahim Bin Abu Al Balaad, from his father, from Al Waleed Bin Sabeeh, Abu Abdullah (a.s.) said to me: ‘Which thing do you feed your family with in the winter?’ I said, ‘The meat. So if there is no meat, then the butter, and the oil’. The Imam (a.s.) said: ‘So what is preventing you from this ‘Al-Kar Kour’? For it is something which safeguards the whole body (meaning Al-Masalsat)’. (It is made as described in Al-kafi, one third rice, one third beans and one third kidney beans or other grains, which then are mixed and cooked) He (the narrator) said, ‘One of our companions informed me of the description of Al-Masalsat. He said, ‘A measure of rice is taken, and a measure of chick peas, and a measure of broad beans or what or some other grain, then it is all placed together and cooked’.

عنه، عن أبيه، عن سعدان، عن مولى لام هاني قال: مررت على أبى عبد الله (ع) وفى ردائي طعام بدينار، فقال لى: كيف أصحبت أي أبا فلان؟ - قال: قلت: جعلت فداك تسألني كيف أصبحت وهذا بدينار؟ - قال: أفلا أعلمك كيف تأكله؟ - قلت: بلى، قال: فادع بصحفة فاجعل فيها ماء وزيتا وشيئا من ملح واثرد فيها فكل والعق أصابعك.

2. From him, from his father, from Sa’dan, from a slave of the progeny of Hany who said, ‘I passed by to see Abu Abdullah (a.s.), and in my robe there was food of one Dinaar. So he (a.s.) said to me: ‘How have you come to be, O Abu so and so?’ I said, ‘May I be sacrificed for you (a.s.)! You (a.s.) are asking me how I have come to be and this is of a Dinar?’ He (a.s.) said: ‘Shall I teach you how to eat it?’ I said, ‘Yes’. The Imam (a.s.) said: ‘So call for a bowl, and make water to be in it, and oil, and something from the salt, and mix it all in it. So eat, and lick your fingers’.

قال: وحدثني أبى مرسلا عمن ذكره، عن أبى عبد الله، عن آبائه (ع) قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله: لو أغنى عن الموت شئ لاغنت التلبينة، قيل: يا رسول الله ما التلبينة؟ - قال: الحسو باللبن.

3. He said, ‘And it has been narrated to me with an unbroken chain from the one who mentioned it, (It has been narrated) from Abu Abdullah (a.s.), from his (a.s.) forefathers (a.s.) having said: ‘Rasool-Allah (saww) said: ‘If there was anything which could make you needless from the death, Al-Taybinat would have made you needless of it’. It was said, ‘O Rasool-Allah (saww)! What is Al-Taybinat?’ He (saww) said: ‘Al-Hasou (Red bean soup) with the milk’.

عنه، عن على بن حديد، عمن ذكره، عن أبى عبد الله (ع) قال: إن التلبين يجلو قلب الحزين، كما تجلو الاصابع العرق من الجبين.

4. From him, from Ali Bin Hadeed, from the one who mentioned it, Abu Abdullah (a.s.) has said: ‘Al-Talbayn stimulates the aggrieved heart, just as the fingers stimulate the vein from the forehead’.
