حَدَّثَنِي أَحْمَدُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ خَالِدٍ عَنْ أَبِي الْبَخْتَرِيِّ وَ سِنْدِيِّ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ أَبِي الْبَخْتَرِيِّ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع قَالَ: إِنَّ الْعُلَمَاءَ وَرَثَةُ الْأَنْبِيَاءِ وَ ذَلِكَ أَنَّ الْأَنْبِيَاءَ لَمْ يُوَرِّثُوا دِرْهَماً وَ لَا دِينَاراً وَ إِنَّمَا وَرَّثُوا أَحَادِيثَ مِنْ أَحَادِيثِهِمْ فَمَنْ أَخَذَ شَيْئاً مِنْهَا فَقَدْ أَخَذَ حَظّاً وَافِراً فَانْظُرُوا عِلْمَكُمْ هَذَا عَمَّنْ تَأْخُذُونَهُ فَإِنَّ فِينَا أَهْلَ الْبَيْتِ فِي كُلِّ خَلَفٍ عُدُولًا يَنْفُونَ عَنْهُ تَحْرِيفَ الْغَالِينَ وَ انْتِحَالَ الْمُبْطِلِينَ وَ تَأْوِيلَ الْجَاهِلِينَ.


1. It is narrated to me by Ahmad Bin Muhammad, from Muhammad Bin Khalid, from Abu Al Bakhtari and Sindi Bin Muhammad, from Abu Al Bakhtari, ‘From Abu Abdullah (a.s.): ‘The scholars are inheritors of the Prophets (as), and that is because the Prophets do not leave for inheritance, neither gold nor Dinar, and rather they leave for inheritance, Ahadeeth from their Ahadeeth. The one who takes anything from it, so he has taken an abundant share. Therefore, look at this knowledge of yours, who have you taken it from, regarding us (a.s.), People (a.s.) of the Household. In every replacement (Imam (a.s.)) there would be an equaliser, negating from it the alterations of the exaggerators, and plagiarism of the falsifiers, and interpretations of the ignoramuses’’.




حَدَّثَنِي الْحَسَنُ بْنُ مُوسَى الْخَشَّابُ عَنْ غِيَاثِ بْنِ كَلُّوبٍ عَنْ إِسْحَاقَ بْنِ عَمَّارٍ عَنْ جَعْفَرٍ عَنْ أَبِيهِ ع أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ ص قَالَ: مَا وَجَدْتُمْ فِي كِتَابِ اللَّهِ فَالْعَمَلُ بِهِ لَازِمٌ‏ لَا عُذْرَ لَكُمْ فِي تَرْكِهِ وَ مَا لَمْ يَكُنْ فِي كِتَابِ اللَّهِ وَ كَانَتْ فِيهِ سُنَّةٌ مِنِّي فَلَا عُذْرَ لَكُمْ فِي تَرْكِ سُنَّتِي وَ مَا لَمْ يَكُنْ فِيهِ سُنَّةٌ مِنِّي فَمَا قَالَ أَصْحَابِي فَخُذُوهُ‏ فَإِنَّمَا مَثَلُ أَصْحَابِي فِيكُمْ كَمَثَلِ النُّجُومِ فَبِأَيِّهَا أُخِذَ اهْتُدِيَ وَ بِأَيِّ أَقَاوِيلِ أَصْحَابِي أَخَذْتُمْ اهْتَدَيْتُمْ وَ اخْتِلَافُ أَصْحَابِي لَكُمْ رَحْمَةٌ قِيلَ يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ ص وَ مَنْ أَصْحَابُكَ قَالَ أَهْلُ بَيْتِي.


2. It is narrated to me by Al Hassan Bin Musa Al Khashab, from Giyas Bin Kaloub, from Is’haq Bin Ammar, ‘From Ja’far (a.s.), from his (a.s.) father (a.s.) that Rasool-Allah (saww) having said: ‘Whatever you find in the Book of Allah (azwj), so acting in accordance with it is necessary, there is no excuse for you in neglecting it; and whatever does not happen to be in the Book of Allah (azwj), and there was a Sunnah from me (saww) regarding it, there is no excuse for you in neglecting my (saww) Sunnah. And whatever does not happen to have a Sunnah from me (saww) regarding it, so whatever my (saww) companions have said, take it, for rather, an example of my (saww) companions among you all is like the stars. Whichever of these you take, you will be guided, and with whichever of my (saww) companions you take with, you will be guided, and the differing of my (saww) companions is a mercy for you’. It was said, ‘O Rasool-Allah (saww)! And who are your (saww) companions?’ He (saww) said: ‘People (a.s.) of my (saww) Household’’.




حَدَّثَنَا أَحْمَدُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ عَلِيِّ بْنِ فَضَّالٍ يَرْفَعُهُ إِلَى أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع قَالَ: إِنَّ الْعُلَمَاءَ وَرَثَةُ الْأَنْبِيَاءِ وَ ذَلِكَ أَنَّ الْأَنْبِيَاءَ لَمْ يُوَرِّثُوا دِينَاراً وَ لَا دِرْهَماً وَ إِنَّمَا وَرَّثُوا أَحَادِيثَ مِنْ أَحَادِيثِهِمْ فَمَنْ أَخَذَ بِشَيْ‏ءٍ مِنْهَا فَقَدْ أَخَذَ حَظّاً وَافِراً فَانْظُرُوا عِلْمَكُمْ هَذَا عَمَّنْ تَأْخُذُونَهُ فَإِنَّ فِينَا فِي كُلِّ خَلَفٍ عُدُولًا يَنْفُونَ عَنْهُ تَحْرِيفَ الْغَالِينَ وَ انْتِحَالَ الْمُبْطِلِينَ وَ تَأْوِيلَ الْجَاهِلِينَ.


3. It is narrated to us by Ahmad Bin Muhammad, from Al Hassan Bin Ali Bin Fazzal, raising it to, ‘Abu Abdullah (a.s.) having said: ‘The scholars are inheritors of the Prophets (as), and that is because the Prophets (as) do not leave for inheritance, neither Dinars nor gold, and rather they (as) leave for inheritance their (as) Ahadeeth from their Ahadeeth. So, the one who takes with anything from it, he has taken an abundant share. Therefore, look at this knowledge of yours, who have you taking it from, for among us (a.s.) in every replacement (Imam (a.s.)), there is an equaliser negating the alterations of the exaggerators from it, and the plagiarism of the falsifiers, and interpretations of the ignoramuses’’.




حَدَّثَنَا أَحْمَدُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنِ الْبَرْقِيِّ عَنْ إِبْرَاهِيمَ بْنِ إِسْحَاقَ الْأَزْدِيِّ عَنْ أَبِي عُثْمَانَ الْعَبْدِيِّ عَنْ جَعْفَرٍ ع عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنْ عَلِيٍّ ع قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ص‏ قِرَاءَةُ الْقُرْآنِ فِي الصَّلَاةِ أَفْضَلُ مِنْ قِرَاءَةِ الْقُرْآنِ فِي غَيْرِ الصَّلَاةِ وَ ذِكْرُ اللَّهِ أَفْضَلُ مِنَ الصَّدَقَةِ وَ الصَّدَقَةُ أَفْضَلُ مِنَ الصَّوْمِ وَ الصَّوْمُ جُنَّةٌ ثُمَّ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ص لَا قَوْلَ إِلَّا بِعَمَلٍ وَ لَا عَمَلَ إِلَّا بِنِيَّةٍ وَ لَا نِيَّةَ إِلَّا بِإِصَابَةِ السُّنَّةِ.


4. It is narrated to us by Ahmad Bin Muhammad, from Al Barqy, from Ibrahim Bin Is’haq Al Azdy, from Abu Usman Al Abdy, ‘From Ja’far (a.s.), from his (a.s.) father (a.s.), from Ali (a.s.) having said: ‘Rasool-Allah (saww) said: ‘Recitation of the Quran during the Salat is superior to reciting the Quran in other than Salat, and mentioning Allah (azwj) is superior than giving the charity, and the charity is superior than the Fasting, and the Fasting is a shield’. Then Rasool-Allah (saww) said: ‘There are no words except with action, nor any action except with intention, nor any intention except with hitting the Sunnah (correctly)’’.
