حَدَّثَنَا إِبْرَاهِيمُ بْنُ إِسْحَاقَ عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ حَمَّادٍ عَنْ صَبَّاحٍ الْمُزَنِيِّ عَنِ الْحَارِثِ بْنِ حَصِيرَةَ عَنِ الْحَكَمِ بْنِ عُتَيْبَةَ قَالَ: لَقِيَ رَجُلٌ الْحُسَيْنَ بْنَ عَلِيٍّ ع بِالثَّعْلَبِيَّةِ وَ هُوَ يُرِيدُ كَرْبَلَاءَ فَدَخَلَ عَلَيْهِ فَسَلَّمَ عَلَيْهِ فَقَالَ لَهُ الْحُسَيْنُ ع مِنْ أَيِّ الْبُلْدَانِ أَنْتَ فَقَالَ مِنْ أَهْلِ الْكُوفَةِ قَالَ يَا أَخَا أَهْلِ الْكُوفَةِ أَمَا وَ اللَّهِ لَوْ لَقِيتُكَ بِالْمَدِينَةِ لَأَرَيْتُكَ أَثَرَ جَبْرَئِيلَ مِنْ دَارِنَا وَ نُزُولِهِ عَلَى جَدِّي بِالْوَحْيِ يَا أَخَا أَهْلِ الْكُوفَةِ مُسْتَقَى الْعِلْمِ مِنْ عِنْدِنَا أَ فَعَلِمُوا وَ جَهِلْنَا هَذَا مَا لَا يَكُونُ‏.


1. It is narrated to us by Ibrahim Bin Is’haq, from Abdullah Bin Hammad, from Sabbah Al Muzany, from Al Haris Bin Haseyra Al Hakam Bin Uteyba who said, ‘A man met Al-Husayn (a.s.) Bin Ali (a.s.) at Al-Talbiya, and he (a.s.) was intending Karbala. He entered to see him (a.s.) and greeted to him (a.s.). Al-Husayn (a.s.) said to him: ‘Which city are you from?’ He said, ‘From the people of Al-Kufa’. He (a.s.) said: ‘O brother from the people of Al-Kufa! But, by Allah , if you had met me (a.s.) at Al-Medina, I (a.s.) would have shown you the traces of Jibraeel (as) from our (a.s.) house and his (as) descent upon my (a.s.) grandfather (saww) with the Revelation. O brother from the people of Al-Kufa! The knowledge is drawn from our (a.s.) possession. Are they (people) knowing and we (a.s.) are ignorant? This is what cannot happen to be!’’




حَدَّثَنَا الْهَيْثَمُ النَّهْدِيُّ الْكُوفِيُّ عَنِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ عَلِيٍّ عَنِ ابْنِ هَرَاسَةَ الشَّيْبَانِيِّ عَنْ شَيْخٍ مِنْ أَهْلِ الْكُوفَةِ قَالَ: رَأَيْتُ عَلِيَّ بْنَ الْحُسَيْنِ ع بِمِنًى فَقَالَ مِمَّنِ الرَّجُلُ‏ فَقُلْتُ رَجُلٌ مِنْ أَهْلِ الْعِرَاقِ فَقَالَ لِي يَا أَخَا أَهْلِ الْعِرَاقِ أَمَا لَوْ كُنْتَ عِنْدَنَا بِالْمَدِينَةِ لَأَرَيْنَاكَ مَوَاطِنَ جَبْرَئِيلَ مِنْ دُوَيْرِنَا اسْتَقَانَا النَّاسُ الْعِلْمَ فَتَرَاهُمْ عَلِمُوا وَ جَهِلْنَا.


2. It is narrate to us by Al Haysam Al Kufy, from Al Hassan Bin Ali, from Ibn Harasa Al Shaybani, from a sheikh from the people of Al Kufa who said, ‘I saw Ali (a.s.) Bin Al-Husayn (a.s.) at Mina. He (a.s.) said: ‘From where is the man?’ I said, ‘A man from the people Al-Iraq’. He (a.s.) said to me: ‘O brother from the people of Al-Iraq! But, had you been with us (a.s.) at Al-Medina, I (a.s.) would have shown you the places of Jibraeel (as) from our (a.s.) house. The people have learned the knowledge from us (a.s.), and you see them as knowing and us (a.s.) as ignorant?’’




حَدَّثَنَا أَحْمَدُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ مَحْبُوبٍ قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا يَحْيَى بْنُ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ أَبِي الْحَسَنِ صَاحِبُ الدَّيْلَمِ قَالَ سَمِعْتُ جَعْفَرَ بْنَ مُحَمَّدٍ ع يَقُولُ‏ وَ عِنْدَهُ نَاسٌ مِنْ أَهْلِ الْكُوفَةِ عَجَباً لِلنَّاسِ إِنَّهُمْ أَخَذُوا عِلْمَهُمْ كُلَّهُ عَنْ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ ص فَعَمِلُوا بِهِ وَ اهْتَدَوْا وَ يَرَوْا فإنا [أَنَّا] أَهْلَ بَيْتِهِ وَ ذُرِّيَّتَهُ لَمْ نَأْخُذْ عِلْمَهُ وَ نَحْنُ أَهْلُ بَيْتِهِ وَ ذُرِّيَّتُهُ فِي مَنَازِلِنَا نَزَلَ الْوَحْيُ وَ مِنْ عِنْدِنَا خَرَجَ الْعِلْمُ إِلَيْهِمْ أَ فَيَرَوْنَ أَنَّهُمْ عَلِمُوا وَ اهْتَدَوْا وَ جَهِلْنَا نَحْنُ وَ ضَلَلْنَا إِنَّ هَذَا لَمُحَالٌ.


3. It is narrated to us by Ahmad Bin Muhammad, from Al Hassan Bin Mahboub who said, ‘It is narrated to us by Yahya Bin Abdullah Abu Al Hassan, governor of Al Daylam who said, ‘I heard Ja’far (a.s.) Bin Muhammad (a.s.) saying, and in his (a.s.) presence were people from the inhabitants of Al-Kufa: ‘Strange (to think) that they (general Muslims) are taking their knowledge, all of it from Rasool-Allah (saww), so they are (now) learned with it, and guided, and righteous, while we (a.s.) are People (a.s.) of his (saww) Household, and his (saww) offspring. (Do you) think we (a.s.) are not taking his (saww) knowledge, and we (a.s.) are People (a.s.) of his (saww) Household, and his (saww) offspring, and the Revelation descended in our (a.s.) houses, and the knowledge went out to them from us (a.s.)? Do you see them as being learned, and guided, while we (a.s.) are ignorant and have strayed? Surely, this is impossible!’’
