Back to book

1ـ عِدَّةٌ مِنْ أَصْحَابِنَا عَنْ سَهْلِ بْنِ زِيَادٍ عَنْ يَعْقُوبَ بْنِ إِسْحَاقَ الضَّبِّيِّ عَنْ أَبِي عِمْرَانَ الأرْمَنِيِّ عَنْ عَبْدِ الله بْنِ الْحَكَمِ عَنْ جَابِرٍ عَنْ أَبِي جَعْفَرٍ (عَلَيهِ السَّلام) قَالَ قُلْتُ إِنَّ قَوْماً إِذَا ذَكَرُوا شَيْئاً مِنَ الْقُرْآنِ أَوْ حُدِّثُوا بِهِ صَعِقَ أَحَدُهُمْ حَتَّى يُرَى أَنَّ أَحَدَهُمْ لَوْ قُطِعَتْ يَدَاهُ أَوْ رِجْلاهُ لَمْ يَشْعُرْ بِذَلِكَ فَقَالَ سُبْحَانَ الله ذَاكَ مِنَ الشَّيْطَانِ مَا بِهَذَا نُعِتُوا إِنَّمَا هُوَ اللِّينُ وَالرِّقَّةُ وَالدَّمْعَةُ وَالْوَجَلُ. أَبُو عَلِيٍّ الأشْعَرِيُّ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ حَسَّانَ عَنْ أَبِي عِمْرَانَ الأرْمَنِيِّ عَنْ عَبْدِ الله بْنِ الْحَكَمِ عَنْ جَابِرٍ عَنْ أَبِي جَعْفَرٍ (عَلَيهِ السَّلام) مِثْلَهُ.


1. A number of our people have narrated from Sahl ibn Ziyad from Ya’qub ibn Ishaq al-Dabbiy from abu ‘Imran al-Armani from ‘Abd Allah ibn al-Hakam from Jabir who has said the following: “Once I said to abu Ja’far (a.s.) ‘There are people when remembering something from the Holy Quran or is mentioned before them they suffer a shock to the extent that even if their hands or legs are cut they do not realize.’ The Imam said, ‘Glory belongs to Allah. That is from Satan. That is not how believing people are described. It is only softening, tender feelings, a few tears and anxiety.’” Abu Ali al-Ash’ari has narrated from Hassan from abu ‘Imran al-Armani from ‘Abd Allah ibn al-Hakam from Jabir from abu Ja’far (a.s.) a similar Hadith.
