Back to book

- عنه، عن محمد بن عيسى، عن عبيد الله بن عبد الله الدهقان، عن درست الواسطي، عن إبراهيم بن عبد الحميد، عن أبى الحسن موسى (ع) قال: لعن رسول الله ثلاثة، أحدهم الآكل زاده وحده.


1. From him, from Muhammad Bin Isa, from Ubeydullah Bin Abdullah Al Dahqan, from Darsat Al Wasity, from Ibrahim Bin Abdul Hameed, Abu Al-Hassan Musa (a.s.) says that Rasool-Allah (saww) three are cursed – one of them was the eater of his provision, alone’.




عنه، عن محمد بن على، عن عبد الرحمان الاسدي، عن سالم بن مكرم، عن أبى عبد الله (ع) قال: إنما ابتلى يعقوب (ع) بيوسف (ع) إنه ذبح كبشا سمينا، ورجل من أصحابه يدعى " فيوم " محتاج لم يجد ما يفطر عليه، فأغفله فلم يطعمه، فابتلى بيوسف (ع) قال: فكان بعد ذلك ينادى مناديه كل صباح: " من لم يكن صائما فليشهد غداء يعقوب " وإذا أمسى نادى: " من كان صائما فليشهد عشاء يعقوب ".


2. From, from Muhammad Bin Ali, from Abdul Rahman Al Asady, from Saalim Bin Makram, Abu Abdullah (a.s.) having said: ‘But rather, Yaqoub (as) was Afflicted with Yusuf (as) (being taken away). He (as) slaughter a fat ram, and a man from his (as) companions called out, ‘Today the needy one did not find anything to break the Fast with’. So he (as) was heedless of him and did not feed him, for he (as) had been afflicted with Yusuf (as)’. The Imam (a.s.) said: ‘So it was after that, a caller of his (as) called out every morning, ‘Whoever is not Fasting should present himself at the lunch of Yaqoub (as)!’ And when it was evening he called out, ‘One who was Fasting should present himself at the dinner of Yaqoub (as)’.




عنه، عن عدة من أصحابنا، عن على بن أسباط، عن عمه يعقوب بن سالم، عن إسحاق بن عمار، عن الكاهلى، قال: سمعت أبا عبد الله (ع) يقول: إن يعقوب (ع) لما ذهب منه ابن يامين نادى يا رب يا رب أما ترحمني؟ - أذهبت عينى وأذهبت ابني؟ - فأوحى الله تبارك وتعالى لو أمتهما لاحييتهما حتى أجمع بينك وبينهما، ولكن أما تذكر الشاة التى ذبحتها وشويتها، وأكلت وفلان إلى جنبك صائم، لم تنله منها شيئا؟


3. Fromhim, from a number of our companions, from Ali Bin Asbaat, from his uncle Yaqoub Bin Salim, from Is’haq Bin Amaar, from Al Kahily who said, ‘I heard Abu Abdullah (a.s.) saying: ‘When he (as) went from him (as), Yaqoub (as) called out: ‘O Lord (azwj)! O Lord (azwj)! But, will You (azwj) not have Mercy upon me (as)? My eyesight has gone, and my (as) son (as) has gone?’ So, Allah (azwj) Blessed and High Revealed: “Even if you (as) two were to die, I (azwj) would Revive the both of you (as) until I (azwj) Gather you (as) and him (as). But, remember the sheep that was slaughtered and cooked and eaten, and so and so by your (as) side (neighbour) is Fasting, and he did not attain anything from it?” - قال ابن أسباط: قال: يعقوب: حدثنى الميثمى، عن أبى عبد الله (ع): أن يعقوب بعد ذلك كان ينادى مناديه كل غداة من منزله على فرسخ: " ألا من أراد الغداء فليأت آل يعقوب " وإذا أمسى نادى: " ألا من أراد العشاء فليأت آل يعقوب ". Ibn Asbat, from Yaqoub, from Al Maysami, Abu Abdullah (a.s.) has said: ‘Yaqoub (as), after that, got his (as) caller to call out every morning from his (as) house, to (a distance of) a Farsakh, ‘Indeed! The one who wants food should come to the Progeny of Yaqoub (as)!’ And when it was evening, called out, ‘Indeed! The one who intends the dinner, so he should come to the Progeny of Yaqoub (as)’.
