عنه، عن الحسن بن على الوشاء، عن أبى الحسن الرضا (ع) يقول: إن - النجاشي لما خطب لرسول الله (ض) أم حبيبة آمنة بنت أبى سفيان فزوجه دعا بطعام وقال: إن من سنن المرسلين الاطعام عند التزويج.

عنه، عن بعض العراقيين، عن إبراهيم بن عقبة، عن جعفر القلانسى، عن أبيه، قال: قلت لابي عبد الله (ع): إنا نتخذ الطعام ونجيده ونتنوق فيه ولا يكون له رائحة طعام العرس؟! قال: ذاك لان طعام العرس تهب فيه رائحة من الجنة، لانه طعام اتخذ لحلال.


6. From him, from one of the Iraqis, from Ibrahim Bin Uqba, from Ja’far Al Qalanasy, from his father who said, ‘I said to Abu Abdullah (asws), ‘We take the food and we freshen it and make it better but there does not happen to be the aroma for it like the aroma of the food for the marriage?’ He (asws) said: ‘That is because the food of the marriage has been endowed with the aroma from the Paradise, because it is a food prepared for the Permissible (event)’.
