- عنه، عن أبى يوسف يعقوب بن زيد، عن إبراهيم بن سماك، عن رجل، عن أبى عبد الله (ع) في قول الله: " فلما بلغ مطلع الشمس وجدها تطلع على قوم لم نجعل لهم من دونها سترا " قال: لم يعلموا صنعة البناء.

1. From him, from Abu Yusuf Yaqoub Bin Zayd, from Ibrahim Bin Samaak, from a man, (It has been narrated) from Abu Abdullah (a.s.) regarding the Words of Allah (azwj) [18:90] Until when he reached the land of the rising of the Sun, he found it rising on a people to whom We had Given no shelter from It. The Imam (a.s.) said: ‘They did not know the workmanship of the construction (how to build a house)’.

عنه، عن النوفلي، عن السكوني عن أبى عبد الله (ع) ان رجلا من الانصار سأل النبي صلى الله عليه وآله ان الدور قد اكتنفته فقال له النبي صلى الله عليه وآله: ارفع ما استطعت واسأل الله أن يوسع عليك.

2. From him, from Al Nowfaly, from Al Sakuny, (It has been narrated) from Abu Abdullah (a.s.) that a man from the ‘Ansar’ Helpers asked the Prophet (saww) that the ground floor had proved to be problematic, so the Prophet (saww) said to him: ‘Raise what you are able to and ask Allah (azwj) that He (azwj) should Expand (the sustenance) over you’.
