حَدَّثَنِي أَحْمَدُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ أَبِي يَحْيَى الْوَاسِطِيِّ عَنْ بَعْضِ أَصْحَابِنَا قَالَ قَالَ‏ أَبُو عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع‏ خَلَقَنَا مِنْ عِلِّيِّينَ وَ خَلَقَ أَرْوَاحَنَا مِنْ فَوْقِ ذَلِكَ وَ خَلَقَ أَرْوَاحَ شِيعَتِنَا مِنْ عِلِّيِّينَ وَ خَلَقَ أَجْسَادَهُمْ مِنْ دُونِ ذَلِكَ فَمِنْ أَجَلِ تِلْكَ الْقَرَابَةِ بَيْنَنَا وَ بَيْنَهُمْ قُلُوبُهُمْ تَحِنُّ إِلَيْنَا.


1. It is narrated to me by Ahmad Bin Muhammad, from Abu Yahya Al Qasity, from one of our companions who said, ‘Abu Abdullah (a.s.) said: ‘We (a.s.) are Created from Illiyeen, and our (a.s.) souls are Created from above that, and the souls of our (a.s.) Shias are from Illiyeen, and their bodies are Created from below that. So, from the reason of that relationship between us (a.s.) and them, their hearts incline towards us (a.s.)’’




حَدَّثَنَا صائر الدرجات عِمْرَانُ بْنُ مُوسَى عَنْ إِبْرَاهِيمَ بْنِ مَهْزِيَارَ عَنْ أَخِيهِ عَلِيٍّ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ سِنَانٍ عَنْ إِسْمَاعِيلَ بْنِ جَابِرٍ وَ كَرَّامٍ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ مُضَارِبٍ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع قَالَ: إِنَّ اللَّهَ تَبَارَكَ وَ تَعَالَى جَعَلَنَا مِنْ عِلِّيِّينَ وَ جَعَلَ أَرْوَاحَ شِيعَتِنَا مِمَّا جَعَلَنَا مِنْهُ وَ مِنْ ثَمَّ تَحِنُّ أَرْوَاحُهُمْ إِلَيْنَا وَ خَلَقَ أَبْدَانَهُمْ مِنْ دُونِ ذَلِكَ وَ خَلَقَ عَدُوَّنَا مِنْ سِجِّينٍ وَ خَلَقَ أَرْوَاحَ شِيعَتِهِمْ مِمَّا خَلَقَهُمْ مِنْهُ وَ خَلَقَ أَبْدَانَهُمْ مِنْ دُونِ ذَلِكَ وَ مِنْ ثَمَّ تَهْوِي أَرْوَاحُهُمْ إِلَيْهِمْ‏.


2. It is narrated to us by Imran Bin Musa, from Ibrahim Bin Mihran Bin Mahziyar, from his brother Ali, from Muhammad Bin Sinan, from Ismail Bin Jabir and Karram, from Muhammad Bin Muzarib, ‘From Abu Abdullah (a.s.) having said: ‘Allah (azwj) Blessed and Exalted Made us (a.s.) from Illiyeen and Made souls of our (a.s.) Shias from what we (a.s.) were Made from, and from then their souls incline towards us (a.s.); and their bodies are Created from below that. And our (a.s.) enemies are Created from Sijjeen, and the souls of their shias (adherents) are from what they have been Created from, and their bodies are Created from below that, and from then they souls incline towards them’’.




حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ عِيسَى عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ شُعَيْبٍ عَنْ عِمْرَانَ بْنِ إِسْحَاقَ الزَّعْفَرَانِيِّ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ مَرْوَانَ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع قَالَ سَمِعْتُهُ يَقُولُ‏ خَلَقَنَا اللَّهُ‏ مِنْ نُورِ عَظَمَتِهِ ثُمَّ صَوَّرَ خَلْقَنَا مِنْ طِينَةٍ مَخْزُونَةٍ مَكْنُونَةٍ مِنْ تَحْتِ الْعَرْشِ فَأَسْكَنَ ذَلِكَ النُّورَ فِيهِ فَكُنَّا نَحْنُ خَلْقاً وَ بَشَراً نُورَانِيِّينَ‏ لَمْ يَجْعَلْ لِأَحَدٍ فِي مِثْلِ الَّذِي خَلَقَنَا مِنْهُ نَصِيباً وَ خَلَقَ أَرْوَاحَ شِيعَتِنَا مِنْ أَبْدَانِنَا وَ أَبْدَانَهُمْ مِنْ طِينَةٍ مَخْزُونَةٍ مَكْنُونَةٍ أَسْفَلَ مِنْ ذَلِكَ‏ الطِّينَةِ وَ لَمْ يَجْعَلِ اللَّهُ لِأَحَدٍ فِي مِثْلِ ذَلِكَ الَّذِي خَلَقَهُمْ مِنْهُ نَصِيباً إِلَّا الْأَنْبِيَاءِ وَ الْمُرْسَلِينَ فَلِذَلِكَ صِرْنَا نَحْنُ وَ هُمُ النَّاسَ وَ سَائِرُ النَّاسِ هَمَجاً فِي النَّارِ وَ إِلَى النَّارِ.


3. It is narrated to us by Muhammad Bin Shuayn, from Imran Bin Ishaq Al Zafrany, from Muhammad Bin Marwan, ‘From Abu Abdullah (a.s.), he (the narrator) said, ‘I heard him (a.s.) saying: ‘Allah (azwj) Created us (a.s.) from Noor (Light) of His (azwj) Magnificence, then Imaged our (a.s.) creation from treasured hidden clay from beneath the Throne, and Settled that Noor in it. So, we (a.s.) happen to be creatures and humans of luminosity. No share has been Made to be for anyone in the like of which we (a.s.) are Created from. And souls of our (a.s.) Shias are Created from our (a.s.) bodies, and their bodies are from treasured hidden clay lower than that clay, and Allah (azwj) did not Make any share to be for anyone in the like that which He (azwj) Created them from except for the Prophets (as) and the Messengers (as). So, due to that, we (a.s.) and them became the people, and the rest of the people would fall into the Fire and (go) to the Fire’’.
