- عنه، عن على بن محمد القاسانى، عن أبى أيوب سليمان بن مقبل المدايني، عن دادو بن عبد الله بن محمد الجعفري، عن أبيه، أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله كان في بعض مغازيه فمر به ركب وهو يصلى، فوفقوا على أصحاب رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله فسألوهم عن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله ودعوا وأثنوا وقالوا: " لولا أنا عجال لانتظرنا رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله فأقرئوه السلام "، ومضوا، فانفتل النبي صلى الله عليه وآله مغضبا ثم قال لهم: يقف عليكم الركب يسئلونكم عنى ويبلغونني السلام ولا تعرضون عليهم الغداء، يعز على قوم فيهم خليلي جعفر أن يجوزوه حتى يتغدوا عنده.


1. From him, from Ali Bin Muhammad Al Qasany, from Abu Ayoub Suleyman Bin Maqbal Al Madainy, from Dadou Bin Abdullah Bin Muhammad Al Ja’fary, from his father who said, ‘When Rasool-Allah (saww) was in one of his (saww) military expeditions, some riders passed by him (saww) while he (saww) was Praying. So they paused by the companions of Rasool-Allah (azwj) and asked them about Rasool-Allah (saww). So they bade them farewell and praised and said, ‘If we were not in a hurry we would have awaited Rasool-Allah (saww), so convey the greetings’. And they went. So the Prophet (saww) turned angrily, then said to them: ‘The riders paused by you and asked about me (saww) to deliver the greetings to me (saww) and you did not present the lunch to them? It is difficult upon a people among whom is my (saww) friend Ja’far that they should offend him until the makes them lunch with him?’




عنه، عن أحمد بن عيسى، عن عدة رفعوا إلى أبى عبد الله (ع) قال، إذا دخل عليك أخوك فاعرض عليه الطعام، فان لم يأكل فاعرض عليه الماء، فان لم يشرب فاعرض عليه الوضوء.


2. From him, from Ahmad Bin Isa, from a number, relating it to: Abu Abdullah (a.s.) says: ‘If your brother comes to you, so offer him the food. If he does not eat, then offer him the water. If he does not drink, so offer him the ablution’.




عنه، عن ابن محبوب، عن على بن الخطاب الخلال، عن رجل، عن أبى - عبد الله (ع) قال: أتاه مولى له، فسلم عليه ومعه ابنه إسماعيل فسلم عليه وجلس، فلما أنصرف أبو عبد الله (ع) انصرف معه الرجل، فلما انتهى أبو عبد الله (ع) إلى باب داره دخل وترك الرجل، فقال له إبنه إسماعيل: يا أبه، ألا كنت عرضت عليه الدخول؟ - فقال: لم يكن من شأني إدخاله، قال: فهو لم يكن يدخل، قال: يا بنى إنى أكره أن يكتبنى الله عراضا.


3. From him, from Ibn Mahboub, from Ali Bin Al Khattab Al Khalal, from a man, Abu Abdullah (a.s.) said: ‘A freed slave of his (a.s.) came to him (a.s.), so he (a.s.) greeted him, and with him (a.s.) was his (a.s.) son Ismail. So he greeted him and he was seated. When he started to leave, Abu Abdullah (a.s.) left along with the man. So when Abu Abdullah (a.s.) ended up at the door of his (a.s.) house, he (a.s.) entered back inside and left the man. So his (a.s.) son Ismail said to him (a.s.), ‘O Father (a.s.)! You (a.s.) did not bring him inside and fed him (a.s.)?’ So he (a.s.) said: ‘It was not from my (a.s.) glory that I (a.s.) should bring him inside’. He said, ‘So he was not to be brought inside?’ The Imam (a.s.) replied: ‘So my (a.s.) son! I dislike that Allah (azwj) should Write me (a.s.) down as an ‘Araaza’ (One who feeds everybody)’.
