Back to book

- عنه، عن أبيه، عن ابن أبى عمير، عن رجل، عن أبى عبد الله (ع) قال: وطى رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله الرمضاء فأحرقته، فوطئ على الرجلة وهى البقلة الحمقاء، فسكن عنه حر الرمضاء فدعا لها وكان يحبها.


1. From him, from his father, from Ibn Abu Umeyr, from a man, (It has been narrated) from Abu Abdullah (asws) having said: ‘Rasool-Allah (saww) treaded upon the desert sand so it burnt him (saww), so he (saww) applied the ‘vegetable of the foolish’ (purslane) upon the feet, so it settle from him (saww) the heat of the desert sand. So he (saww) called for it and used to love it’.




عنه، عن محمد بن عيسى أو غيره، عن قتيبة بن مهران، عن حماد بن زكريا النخعي، عن أبى عبد الله (ع) قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله: عليكم بالفرفخ فهى المكيسة، فانه إن كان شئ يزيد في العقل فهى.


2. From him, from Muhammad Bin Isa or someone else, from Quteyba Bin Mahran, from Hamaad Bin Zakariyya Al Nakhai’e, from Abu Abdullah (asws) having said: ‘Rasool-Allah (saww) said: ‘It is on you (to eat) Al-Farfakh (purslane – a salad plant) for it is Al-Makeysa. If there is anything which increases the intellect, so it is it’.




عنه رفعه قال: قال أبو عبد الله (ع): ليس على وجه الارض بقلة أشرف ولا أنفع من الفرفخ، وهى بقلة فاطمة (ع)، ثم قال: لعن الله بنى أمية هم سموها بقلة الحمقاء بغضا وعداوة لفاطمة (ع).


3. From him, raising it, said: ‘Abu Abdullah (asws) said: ‘There is no vegetable upon the face of the earth which is nobler, nor more beneficial that Al-Farfakh (Purslane – a salad plant), and it is a vegetable of Syeda Fatima (asws)’. Then he (asws) said: ‘Rasool-Allah (saww) cursed the Clan of Umayya for having named it as ‘a vegetable of the foolish’ due to their hatred and enmity to Fatima (asws)’.
