حَدَّثَنِي مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْجُعْفِيِّ عَنْ جَعْفَرِ بْنِ بَشِيرٍ وَ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ عَلِيِّ بْنِ فَضَّالٍ عَنْ مُثَنًّى عَنْ زُرَارَةَ قَالَ: كُنْتُ قَاعِداً عِنْدَ أَبِي جَعْفَرٍ ع فَقَالَ رَجُلٌ مِنْ أَهْلِ الْكُوفَةِ يَسْأَلُهُ عَنْ قَوْلِ أَمِيرِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ سَلُونِي عَمَّا شِئْتُمْ وَ لَا تَسْأَلُونِي عَنْ شَيْ‏ءٍ إِلَّا أَنْبَأْتُكُمْ بِهِ فَقَالَ إِنَّهُ لَيْسَ أَحَدٌ عِنْدَهُ عِلْمٌ إِلَّا خَرَجَ مِنْ عِنْدِ أَمِيرِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ ع فَلْيَذْهَبِ النَّاسُ حَيْثُ شَاءُوا فَوَ اللَّهِ لَيَأْتِيهِمُ الْأَمْرُ مِنْ هَاهُنَا وَ أَشَارَ بِيَدِهِ إِلَى الْمَدِينَةِ.


1. It is narrated to me by Muhammad Bin Al Jufy, from Ja’far Bin Bashir and Al Hassan Bin Ali Bin Fazzal, from Musanna, from Zurara who said, ‘I was seated in the presence of Abu Ja’far (a.s.). A man from the people of Al-Kufa asked him (a.s.) about the words of Amir Al-Momineen (a.s.): ‘Ask me (a.s.) about whatever you like. You will not ask me (a.s.) about anything except I (a.s.) will inform you with it’. He (a.s.) said: ‘Surely, there isn’t anyone having knowledge with him except it has emerged from Amir Al-Momineen (a.s.). So, let the people go wherever they like, for by Allah , the matter would come to them from over here’ – and he (a.s.) gestured towards Al-Medina’’.
