1ـ مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ يَحْيَى عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ عِيسَى عَنِ ابْنِ فَضَّالٍ عَنِ ابْنِ بُكَيْرٍ عَنْ حَمْزَةَ بْنِ حُمْرَانَ عَنْ عُمَرَ بْنِ حَنْظَلَةَ قَالَ قَالَ لِي أَبُو عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيهِ السَّلام) يَا أَبَا الصَّخْرِ إِنَّ الله يُعْطِي الدُّنْيَا مَنْ يُحِبُّ وَيُبْغِضُ وَلا يُعْطِي هَذَا الأمْرَ إِلا صَفْوَتَهُ مِنْ خَلْقِهِ أَنْتُمْ وَالله عَلَى دِينِي وَدِينِ آبَائِي إِبْرَاهِيمَ وَإِسْمَاعِيلَ لا أَعْنِي عَلِيَّ بْنَ الْحُسَيْنِ وَلا مُحَمَّدَ بْنَ عَلِيٍّ وَإِنْ كَانَ هَؤُلاءِ عَلَى دِينِ هَؤُلاءِ.


1. Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn ‘Isa from ibn Faddal from ibn Bukayr from Hamza ibn Humran from ‘Umar ibn Hanzalah who has said the following: “Once abu ‘Abd Allah (a.s.) said to me, ‘O abu al-Sakhr, Allah indeed grants the world to whoever He loves or hates. He does not grant this cause (belief) but to the chosen ones of His creatures. You, by Allah, follow my religion and the religion of my predecessors, Ibrahim and Isma’il. I do not mean thereby Ali ibn al-Husayn, Muhammad ibn Ali (a.s.) even though they follow their (Abraham and Isma’il’s) religion.’”
