1. It is narrated to me by Ali Bin Hassan, from Ali Bin Atiya Al Zayyat, raising it to, ‘Amir Al-Momineen (a.s.), he (the narrator) said, ‘Ali (a.s.) Bin Abu Talib (a.s.) said: ‘There is a river for Allah below His Throne, and below the rive which is below His Throne, there is a Noor (Light) from His , and on the banks of the river there are two Created spirits – the Holy Spirit and a Spirit from His Command. And that for Allah there are ten clays, five from a substance from the Paradise, and five from the earth’ – and he (a.s.) explained the Gardens and the earth. Then he (a.s.) said: ‘There is none from a Prophet (saww), nor from an Angel from after its moulding, except there was blown into it from (one of) the two Spirits, and the Prophet (saww) was Made to be from one of the two clays’. I said to Abu Al-Hassan (a.s.), ‘What is the mould?’ He (a.s.) said: ‘The creatures other than us (a.s.), People (a.s.) of the Household, for Allah Created us from the ten clays altogether, and Blew into us (a.s.) from the two Spirits altogether. So, the better one is our (a.s.) clay’. And it is reported by others, from Abu Al-Samit who said, ‘Clay of the Gardens (is from) Garden of Eden, and Garden of Al-Ma’wa (Shelter), and Al-Naeem (Bliss), and Al-Firdows, and Al-Khuld (Eternal); and clay of the earth (is from) Makkah, and Al-Medina, and Bayt Al-Maqdis, and Al-Hira’’.
