حَدَّثَنَا الْهَيْثَمُ النَّهْدِيُّ عَنِ الْبَرْقِيِّ عَنْ خَلَفِ بْنِ حَمَّادٍ عَنْ أَبَانِ بْنِ تَغْلِبَ قَالَ قَالَ أَبُو عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع‏ الْحُجَّةُ قَبْلَ الْخَلْقِ وَ مَعَ الْخَلْقِ وَ بَعْدَ الْخَلْقِ.


1. It is narrated to us by Al Haysam Al Nahdy, from Al Barqy, from Khalaf Bin Hammad, from Aban Bin Taglib who said, ‘Abu Abdullah (a.s.) having said: ‘The Divine Authority was before the creatures, and is with the creatures, and would be after the creatures’’.




حَدَّثَنَا بالْهَيْثَمُ النَّهْدِيُّ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنْ يُونُسَ بْنِ يَعْقُوبَ قَالَ سَمِعْتُ أَبَا عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع يَقُولُ‏ لَوْ لَمْ تَكُنْ فِي الدُّنْيَا إِلَّا اثْنَانِ لَكَانَ أَحَدُهُمَا الْإِمَامَ‏.


2. It is narrated to us by Al Haysam Al Nahdy, from his father, from Yunus Bin Yaqoub who said, ‘I heard Abu Abdullah (a.s.) saying: ‘If there do not happen to be in the word except two, one of the two would be the Imam (a.s.)’’.




حَدَّثَنَا بأَحْمَدُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ عَلِيِّ بْنِ إِسْمَاعِيلَ عَنِ ابْنِ سِنَانٍ عَنْ حَمْزَةَ بْنِ الطَّيَّارِ قَالَ سَمِعْتُ أَبَا عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع يَقُولُ‏ لَوْ لَمْ يَبْقَ فِي الْأَرْضِ إِلَّا اثْنَانِ لَكَانَ أَحَدُهُمَا الْحُجَّةَ عَلَى صَاحِبِهِ‏.


3. It is narrated to us by Ahmad Bin Muhammad, from Ali Bin Ismail, from Ibn Sinan, from Hamza Bin Al Tayyar who said, ‘I heard Abu Abdullah (a.s.) saying: ‘If there do not remain in the earth except two, one of the two would be the Divine Authority over his (a.s.) companion’’.




حَدَّثَنَا بأَحْمَدُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ الْحَسَنِ عَنِ ابْنِ سِنَانٍ عَنِ ابْنِ عُمَارَةَ بْنِ الطَّيَّارِ قَالَ قَالَ: لَوْ لَمْ يَبْقَ فِي الْأَرْضِ إِلَّا اثْنَانِ لَكَانَ أَحَدُهُمَا الْحُجَّةَ وَ لَوْ ذَهَبَ أَحَدُهُمَا بَقِيَ الْحُجَّةُ.


4. It is narrated to us by Ahmad Bin Muhammad, from Muhammad Bin Al Hassan, from Ibn Sinan, from Ibn Umara Bin Al Tayyar who said, ‘If there do not remain in the earth except two, one of the two would be the Divine Authority, and if one of the two goes (dies), the remaining one would be the Divine Authority’’.




حَدَّثَنَا بمُحَمَّدُ بْنُ عِيسَى عَنِ ابْنِ سِنَانٍ عَنْ أَبِي عُمَارَةَ بْنِ الطَّيَّارِ قَالَ‏ سَمِعْتُ أَبَا عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع يَقُولُ‏ لَوْ لَمْ يَبْقَ فِي الْأَرْضِ إِلَّا اثْنَانِ لَكَانَ أَحَدُهُمَا الْحُجَّةَ.


5. It is narrated to us by Muhammad Bin Isa, from Ibn Sinan, from Abu Umara Bin Al Tayyar who said, ‘I heard Abu Abdullah (a.s.) saying: ‘If there do not remain in the earth except two, one of the two would be the Divine Authority’’.
