حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْحُسَيْنِ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ سِنَانٍ عَنْ عَمَّارِ بْنِ مَرْوَانَ عَنْ جَابِرٍ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع قَالَ: إِنَّ أَمْرَنَا سِرٌّ فِي سِرٍّ وَ سِرٌّ مُسْتَسِرٌّ وَ سِرٌّ لَا يُفِيدُ [هُ‏] إِلَّا سِرٌّ وَ سِرٌّ عَلَى سِرٍّ وَ سِرٌّ مُقَنَّعٌ بِسِرٍّ.


1. It is narrated to us by Muhammad Bin Al Husayn, from Muhammad Bin Sinan, from Ammar Bin Marwan, from Jabir, ‘From Abu Abdullah (a.s.) having said: ‘Our (a.s.) matter is a secret in a secret, and a secret in a place of secrecy, and a secret nothing can benefit except a secret, and a secret upon a secret, and a secret covered by a secret’’.




حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ أَحْمَدَ عَنْ جَعْفَرِ بْنِ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ مَالِكٍ الْكُوفِيِّ قَالَ حَدَّثَنِي أَحْمَدُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ أَبِي الْيُسْرِ قَالَ حَدَّثَنِي زَيْدُ بْنُ الْمُعَدِّلِ عَنْ أَبَانِ بْنِ عُثْمَانَ قَالَ قَالَ أَبُو جَعْفَرٍ ع‏ إِنَّ أَمْرَنَا هَذَا مَسْتُورٌ مُقَنَّعٌ بِالْمِيثَاقِ مَنْ هَتَكَهُ أَذَلَّهُ اللَّهُ.


2. It is narrated to us by Muhammad Bin Ahmad, from Ja’far Bin Muhammad Bin Malik Al Kufy who said, ‘It is narrated to me by Ahmad Bin Muhammad, from Abu Al Yusr who said, ‘It is narrated to me by Zayd Bin Al Muaddil, from Aban Bin Usman who said, ‘This matter of ours (a.s.) is concealed, covered by the Covenant. One who violates it, Allah would Disgrace him’’.




وَ رُوِيَ عَنْ أَبَانِ بْنِ عُثْمَانَ قَالَ قَالَ أَبُو عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع‏ إِنَّ أَمْرَنَا هَذَا مَسْتُورٌ مُقَنَّعٌ بِالْمِيثَاقِ وَ مَنْ هَتَكَهُ أَذَلَّهُ اللَّهُ.


3. And it is reported from Aban Bin Usman who said, ‘Abu Abdullah (a.s.) said: ‘This matter of ours (a.s.) is concealed, covered by the Covenant, and one who violates it, Allah would Disgrace him’’.




وَ رُوِيَ عَنِ ابْنِ أَبِي مَحْبُوبٍ عَنْ مُرَازِمٍ قَالَ قَالَ أَبُو عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع‏ إِنَّ أَمْرَنَا هُوَ الْحَقُّ وَ حَقُّ الْحَقِّ وَ هُوَ الظَّاهِرُ وَ بَاطِنُ الْبَاطِنِ وَ هُوَ السِّرُّ وَ سِرُّ السِّرِّ وَ سِرُّ الْمُسْتَسِرِّ وَ سِرٌّ مُقَنَّعٌ بِالسِّرِّ.


4. And it is reported from Ibn Abu Mahboub, from Murazim who said, ‘Abu Abdullah (a.s.) said: ‘Our (a.s.) matter, it is the truth, and truth of the truth, and it is the apparent, and esoteric of the esoteric, and it is the secret, and secret of the secret, and a secret in a secretive place, and a secret covered by the secret’’.




حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ عِمْرَانَ بْنِ مُوسَى عَنْ مُوسَى بْنِ جَعْفَرٍ عَنْ عَلِيِّ بْنِ أَسْبَاطٍ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ الْفُضَيْلِ عَنْ أَبِي حَمْزَةَ الثُّمَالِيِّ عَنْ أَبِي جَعْفَرٍ ع قَالَ: قَرَأْتُ عَلَيْهِ آيَةَ الْخُمُسِ فَقَالَ مَا كَانَ لِلَّهِ فَهُوَ لِرَسُولِهِ وَ مَا كَانَ لِرَسُولِهِ فَهُوَ لَنَا ثُمَّ قَالَ لَقَدْ يَسَّرَ اللَّهُ عَلَى الْمُؤْمِنِينَ أَنَّهُ رَزَقَهُمْ خَمْسَةَ دَرَاهِمَ وَ جَعَلُوا لِرَبِّهِمْ وَاحِداً وَ أَكَلُوا أَرْبَعَةً حَلَالًا ثُمَّ قَالَ هَذَا مِنْ حَدِيثِنَا صَعْبٌ مُسْتَصْعَبٌ لَا يَعْمَلُ بِهِ وَ لَا يَصْبِرُ عَلَيْهِ إِلَّا مُمْتَحَنٌ قَلْبُهُ لِلْإِيمَانِ.


5. It is narrated to us by Abu Muhammad, from Imran Bin Musa, from Musa Bin Ja’far, from Ali Bin Asbaat, from Muhammad Bin Al Fuzeyl, from Abu Hamza Al Sumali, ‘From Abu Ja’far (a.s.), he (the narrator) said, ‘The Verse of Khums was recited unto him (a.s.). He (a.s.) said: ‘Whatever was for Allah , so it is for His Rasool (saww), so it is for us (a.s.)’. Then he (a.s.) said: ‘Allah has Eased upon the Momineen that He Graces them five Dirhams and they made one to be for their Lord , and they are consuming four as Permissible’. Then he (a.s.) said: ‘This is from our (a.s.) Hadeeth (which are) difficult, becoming more difficult. None can act with it, nor be patient upon it except one whose heart is Tested for the Eman’’.
