1. It is narrated to us by Muhammad Bin Al Husayn, from Safwan Bin Yahya, from one of his men, ‘From Abu Abdullah (a.s.), from his (a.s.) father (a.s.), from Ali (a.s.) Bin Al-Husayn (a.s.), from Amir Al-Momineen (a.s.) having said: ‘For Allah there is a city behind the west called Jabalqa, and in Jabalqa there are seventy thousand communities. There isn’t any community from it except it is similar to this community. They do not disobey Allah for the blink of an eye. They do not do any deed nor say any word except the supplication against the two former ones (Abu Bakr and Umar), and the disavowment from both of them, and the Wilayah for People (a.s.) of the Household of Rasool-Allah (saww)’’.




حَدَّثَنَا يَعْقُوبُ بْنُ إِسْحَاقَ بْنِ إِبْرَاهِيمَ الْجَرِيرِيُّ عَنْ أَبِي عِمْرَانَ الْأَرْمَنِيِّ عَنِ الْحُسَيْنِ بْنِ الْجَارُودِ عَمَّنْ حَدَّثَهُ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع قَالَ: إِنَّ مِنْ وَرَاءِ أَرْضِكُمْ هَذِهِ أَرْضاً بَيْضَاءَ ضَوْؤُهَا مِنْهَا فِيهَا خَلْقٌ يَعْبُدُونَ اللَّهَ لَا يُشْرِكُونَ بِهِ شَيْئاً يَتَبَرَّءُونَ مِنْ فُلَانٍ وَ فُلَانٍ.


2. It is narrated to us by Yaqoub Bin Is’haq Bin Ibrahim Al Jareeeri, from Abu Imran Al Armani, from Al Husayn Bin Al Jaroud, from the one who narrated it, ‘From Abu Abdullah (a.s.) having said: ‘Behind this land of yours is a land having white illumination from it. Therein are people worshipping Allah , not associating anything with Him , disavowing from so and so, and so and so (Abu Bakr and Umar)’’.




حَدَّثَنَا أَحْمَدُ بْنُ مُوسَى عَنِ الْحُسَيْنِ بْنِ مُوسَى الْخَشَّابِ عَنْ عَلِيِّ بْنِ حَسَّانَ عَنْ عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَنِ بْنِ كَثِيرٍ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع قَالَ: إِنَّ مِنْ وَرَاءِ عَيْنِ شَمْسِكُمْ هَذِهِ أَرْبَعِينَ عَيْنَ شَمْسٍ فِيهَا خَلْقٌ كَثِيرٌ وَ إِنَّ مِنْ وَرَاءِ قَمَرِكُمْ أَرْبَعِينَ قَمَراً فِيهَا خَلْقٌ كَثِيرٌ لَا يَدْرُونَ أَنَّ اللَّهَ خَلَقَ آدَمَ أَمْ لَمْ يَخْلُقْهُ أُلْهِمُوا إِلْهَاماً لَعْنَةَ فُلَانٍ وَ فُلَانٍ.


3. It is narrated to us by Ahmad Bin Musa, from Al Husayn Bin Musa Al Khashab, from Ali Bin Hassan, from Abdul Rahman Bin Kaseer, ‘From Abu Abdullah (a.s.) having said: ‘Behind the eye of this sun of yours there are forty eyes of the sun wherein are a lot of creatures, and from behind your moon that are forty moons wherein are a lot of creatures, not knowing whether Allah Created Adam (as) or did not Created him (as). They are Inspired with Inspiration to curse so and so, and so and so (Abu Bakr and Umar)’’.

4. It is narrated to us by Ahmad Bin Muhammad Bin Al Husayn, from Ahmad Bin Ibrahim, from Ammar, from Ibrahim Bin Al Husayn, from Bistam, from Ibn Bukeyr, from Umar Bin Yazeed, from Hisham Al Jawaliqy, ‘From Abu Abdullah (a.s.) having said: ‘For Allah there is a city behind the sea, its vastness is of a travel distance of forty days of the sun. In it there are a people who do not disobey Allah at all, nor do they recognise Iblees (la), nor do they know the creation of Iblees (la). We (a.s.) meet them every time and they ask us (a.s.) about what they are needy to, and they ask us (a.s.) for the supplication, and they ask us (a.s.) about our (a.s.) Qaim (a.s.), when will he (a.s.) appear, and among them is intense worship and striving; and for their city there are gates in what is between the shutter to the shutter at one hundred Farsakhs. For them is such holiness and intense striving, if I (a.s.) were to show them to you, it would be little your deeds. The man from them prays Salat for a month, not raising his head from his Sajdah. Their food is the glorification, and their clothes are the leaves, and their faces shine with the radiance (Noor). When they see one of us (a.s.), they surround him (a.s.) and gather to him (a.s.) and take from his (a.s.) traces from the ground to be blessed by it. For them is such noise when they pray Salat, severer than the noise of the stormy wind; among them is a group who have not placed down their weapons since they have been awaiting our (a.s.) Qaim (a.s.), supplicating that He Shows him (a.s.) to them. And the age of one of them is of a thousand years. When you see them, you will see the reverence and the calmness, and seek what would draw them closer to Him . Whenever we (a.s.) are withheld (from them), they think that is from Wrath. They are pledging the time which we (a.s.) would be coming to them in. They neither get tired nor slow down. They recite the Book of Allah just as we (a.s.) teach them and if among what we (a.s.) teach them is what, if it were to be recited to the people, they would disbelieve in it and deny it. They ask us (a.s.) about the thing from the Quran when it is referred to them and they do not understand it. When we (a.s.) inform them with it, it expands their chests due to what they hear from us (a.s.). And they as Allah for the long life and that they should not miss us (a.s.), and they know that the Conferment from Allah upon them regarding what we (a.s.) teach them, is mighty, and for them is emergence with the Imam (a.s.) when he (a.s.) rises. The ones from them with the weapons are preceding in it, and they supplicate to Allah that Make them to be from the ones His Religion would be helped with. Among them are elderly people and youth. When the youth from them sees the elder, he sits in front of him the sitting of the slave, not arising until he instructs them. For them is a road they are more knowing with it than the creatures, to when the Imam (a.s.) would want. So, when the Imam (a.s.) orders them with an order, they stand upon it, for ever until he (a.s.) happens to be the one who orders them otherwise. If one of them were to come to the creatures in what is between the east and the west, they would tempt them in one moment. The iron is not defective among the, and for them are swords of iron other that this iron. If one of them were to strike a mountain with his sword, he would split it until he separates it. The Imam (a.s.) will battle with them against in India, and Al-Daylam (North Iran), and Al-Karkh (Kurds), and the Turks, and the Romans, and Berbers (North Africa), and what is between Jabersa up to Jabalqa, and these two are cities, one in the east and one in the west. They will not come to the people of any religion except they would invite them to Allah and to Al-Islam, and to the acknowledgment with Muhammad (saww); and one who does not acknowledge with Al-Islam and does accept Al-Islam and does not submit, they would kill him until there does not remain anyone between the east and the west and what is besides the mountain, except he will accept’’.

5. It is narrated to us by Salama Bin Al Khattab, from Suleyman Bin Sama’at and Abdullah Bin Muhammad, from Abdullah Bin Al Qasim, from Sama’at raising it to Al Hassan and Abu Al Jaroud, and they both mentioned it from Ibn Saeed Al Hamdani who said, ‘Al-Hassan Bin Ali (a.s.) said: ‘For Allah there is a city in the east and a city in the west. Upon each one is an iron bridge; in each bridge are seventy thousand shutters. Seventy thousand languages enter from each shutter, there isn’t any language from it except it is different from the other, and there is no language in it except and we (a.s.) know it. And there is no son (a.s.) of a Prophet (saww) in these two (cities) and between them, apart from me (a.s.) and my (a.s.) brother (a.s.), and I (a.s.) am the Divine Authority of Allah ’’.




حَدَّثَنَا س وَ مِنْ كِتَابِ الْبَصَائِرِ لِسَعْدِ بْنِ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ عَنْ سَلَمَةَ بْنِ الْخَطَّابِ عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَنِ الصَّيْرَفِيِّ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ سُلَيْمَانَ عَنْ يَقْطِينٍ الْجَوَالِيقِيِّ عَنْ فلفلة [قَلْقَلَةَ] عَنْ أَبِي جَعْفَرٍ ع قَالَ: إِنَّ اللَّهَ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ خَلَقَ جَبَلًا مُحِيطاً بِالدُّنْيَا مِنْ زَبَرْجَدَةٍ خَضْرَاءَ وَ إِنَّمَا خُضْرَةُ السَّمَاءِ مِنْ خُضْرَةِ ذَلِكَ الْجَبَلِ وَ خَلَقَ خَلْفَهُ خَلْقاً لَمْ يَفْتَرِضْ عَلَيْهِمْ شَيْئاً مِمَّا افْتَرَضَهُ عَلَى خَلْقِهِ مِنْ صَلَاةٍ وَ زَكَاةٍ وَ كُلٌّ يَلْعَنُ رَجُلَيْنِ مِنْ هَذِهِ الْأُمَّةِ وَ سَمَّاهُمَا.


6. And from the book ‘Al Basaair’ of Sa’ad Bin Abdullah, from Salama Bin Al Khattab, from Ahmad Bin Abdul Rahman Al Sayrafi, from Muhammad Bin Suleyman, from Yaqteen Al Jawaliqy, from Falfalah, ‘From Abu Ja’far (a.s.) having said: ‘Allah Mighty and Majestic Created a mountain of green aquamarine surrounding the world, and rather the greenery of the sky is from the greenery of that mountain, and He Created creatures for it, creatures He did not Obligate anything upon them from what He has Obligated upon His (other) creatures, from Salat, and Zakat, and they all curse two men from this community’, and he (a.s.) named them both (Abu Bakr & Umar)’’.




حَدَّثَنَا أَحْمَدُ بْنُ الْحُسَيْنِ عَنْ عَلِيِّ بْنِ زَيَّاتٍ عَنْ عُبَيْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ الدِّهْقَانِ عَنْ أَبِي الْحَسَنِ ع قَالَ سَمِعْتُهُ يَقُولُ‏ إِنَّ اللَّهَ خَلَقَ هَذَا النِّطَاقَ زَبَرْجَدَةً خَضْرَاءَ فَمِنْ خُضْرَتِهَا اخْضَرَّتِ السَّمَاءُ قَالَ قُلْتُ وَ مَا النِّطَاقُ قَالَ الْحِجَابُ وَ لِلَّهِ وَرَاءَ ذَلِكَ سَبْعُونَ أَلْفَ عَالَمٍ أَكْثَرَ مِنْ عَدَدِ الْإِنْسِ وَ الْجِنِّ وَ كُلُّهُمْ يَلْعَنُ‏ فُلَاناً وَ فُلَاناً.


7. It is narrated to us by Ahmad Bin Al Husayn, from Ali Bin Zayyat, from Ubeydullah Bin Abdullah Al Dihqan, ‘From Abu Al-Hassan (a.s.), he (the narrator) said, ‘I heard him (a.s.) saying: ‘Allah Created this domain of green emeralds. So, it is from this greenery is the greenery of the sky’. He (the narrator) said, ‘I said, ‘And what is the domain?’ He (a.s.) said: ‘The veil, by Allah ! Behind that are seventy thousand worlds, more than the number of the humans and the Jinn, and all of them are cursing so and so, and so and so (Abu Bakr and Umar)’’.




حَدَّثَنَا بمُحَمَّدُ بْنُ هَارُونَ عَنْ أَبِي يَحْيَى الْوَاسِطِيِّ عَنْ سَهْلِ بْنِ زِيَادٍ عَنْ عَجْلَانَ أَبِي صَالِحٍ قَالَ: سَأَلْتُ أَبَا عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع عَنْ قُبَّةِ آدَمَ فَقُلْتُ لَهُ هَذِهِ قُبَّةُ آدَمَ فَقَالَ نَعَمْ وَ لِلَّهِ قِبَابٌ كَثِيرَةٌ أَمَا إِنَّ خَلْفَ مَغْرِبِكُمْ هَذَا تِسْعَةً وَ ثَلَاثِينَ مَغْرِباً أَرْضاً بَيْضَاءَ مَمْلُوَّةً خَلْقاً يَسْتَضِيئُونَ بِنُورِنَا لَمْ يَعْصُوا اللَّهَ طَرْفَةَ عَيْنٍ لَا يَدْرُونَ أَ خَلَقَ اللَّهُ آدَمَ أَمْ لَمْ يَخْلُقْهُ يَتَبَرَّءُونَ مِنْ فُلَانٍ وَ فُلَانٍ قِيلَ لَهُ كَيْفَ هَذَا يَتَبَرَّءُونَ مِنْ فُلَانٍ وَ فُلَانٍ وَ هُمْ لَا يَدْرُونَ أَ خَلَقَ اللَّهُ آدَمَ أَمْ لَمْ يَخْلُقْهُ فَقَالَ لِلسَّائِلِ أَ تَعْرِفُ إِبْلِيسَ قَالَ لَا إِلَّا بِالْخَبَرِ قَالَ فَأُمِرْتَ بِاللَّعْنَةِ وَ الْبَرَاءَةِ مِنْهُ قَالَ نَعَمْ قَالَ فَكَذَلِكَ أُمِرَ هَؤُلَاءِ.


8. It is narrated to us by Muhammad Bin Haround, from Abu Yahya Al Wasity, from Sahl Bin Ziyad, from Ijlan Abu Salih who said, ‘I asked Abu Abdullah (a.s.) about the dome of Adam (as). I said to him (a.s.), ‘This is the dome of Adam (as)?’ He (a.s.) said: ‘Yes, and for Allah there are a lot of domes. As for behind this west of yours, there are thirty-nine wests, white earths filled with creatures being enlightened by our (a.s.) Noor (lights). They do not disobey Allah even for the blink of an eye. They don’t know whether Allah Created Adam (as) or did not Create him (as). They are disavowing from so and so, and so and so (Abu Bakr & Umar)’. It was said to him (a.s.), ‘How can this be that they are disavowing from so and so, and so and so, and they don’t know whether Allah Created Adam (as) or did not Create him (as)?’ He (a.s.) said to the questioner: ‘Do you recognise Iblees (la)?’ He said, ‘No, except by the news’. He (a.s.) said: ‘And you have been Commanded with the cursing and disavowment from him (la)?’ He said, ‘Yes’. He (a.s.) said: ‘So, that is how they have been Commanded’’.




حَدَّثَنَا بمُحَمَّدُ بْنُ عِيسَى عَنْ يُونُسَ عَنْ عَبْدِ الصَّمَدِ عَنْ جَابِرٍ عَنْ أَبِي جَعْفَرٍ ع قَالَ سَمِعْتُهُ يَقُولُ‏ إِنَّ مِنْ وَرَاءِ شَمْسِكُمْ هَذِهِ أَرْبَعِينَ عَيْنَ شَمْسٍ مَا بَيْنَ شَمْسٍ إِلَى شَمْسٍ أَرْبَعُونَ عَاماً فِيهَا خَلْقٌ كَثِيرٌ مَا يَعْلَمُونَ أَنَّ اللَّهَ خَلَقَ آدَمَ أَوْ لَمْ يَخْلُقْهُ وَ إِنَّ مِنْ وَرَاءِ قَمَرِكُمْ هَذَا أَرْبَعِينَ قَمَراً مَا بَيْنَ قَمَرٍ إِلَى قَمَرٍ مَسِيرَةُ أَرْبَعِينَ يَوْماً فِيهَا خَلْقٌ كَثِيرٌ مَا يَعْلَمُونَ أَنَّ اللَّهَ خَلَقَ آدَمَ أَوْ لَمْ يَخْلُقْهُ قَدْ أُلْهِمُوا كَمَا أُلْهِمَتِ النَّحْلُ لَعْنةَ الْأَوَّلِ وَ الثَّانِي فِي كُلِّ وَقْتٍ مِنَ الْأَوْقَاتِ وَ قَدْ وُكِّلَ بِهِمْ مَلَائِكَةٌ مَتَى لَمْ يَلْعَنُوهُمَا عُذِّبُوا.


9. It is narrated to us by Muhammad Bin Isa, from Yunus, from Abdul Samad, from Jabir, ‘From Abu Ja’far (a.s.), he (the narrator) said, ‘I heard him (a.s.) saying: ‘Behind this sun of yours there are forty eyes of the sun, what is between a sun to a sun there are forty millennia (travel distance). Therein are numerous creatures not knowing whether Allah Created Adam (as) or did not Create him (as). And from behind this moon of yours there are forty moons, in what is between a moon to a moon there is a travel distance of forty days. Therein are numerous creatures not knowing whether Allah Created Adam (as) or did not Create him (as). They have (all) been Inspired just as the bees are Inspired, to curse the first (Abu Bakr) and the second (Umar) during all times from the timings, and Angels has been allocated with punishing them when they do not curse them’’.




حَدَّثَنَا أَحْمَدُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ أَبِي يَحْيَى الْوَاسِطِيِّ عَنْ دُرُسْتَ عَنْ عَجْلَانَ أَبِي صَالِحٍ قَالَ: دَخَلَ رَجُلٌ عَلَى أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع فَقَالَ لَهُ جُعِلْتُ فِدَاكَ هَذِهِ قُبَّةُ آدَمَ قَالَ نَعَمْ وَ فِيهِ قِبَابٌ كَثِيرَةٌ إِنَّ خَلْفَ مَغْرِبِكُمْ هَذَا تِسْعَةً وَ ثَلَاثِينَ مَغْرِباً أَرْضاً بَيْضَاءَ مَمْلُوَّةً خَلْقاً يَسْتَضِيئُونَ بِنُورِهَا لَمْ يَعْصُوا اللَّهَ طَرْفَةَ عَيْنٍ مَا يَدْرُونَ أَنَّ اللَّهَ خَلَقَ آدَمَ أَمْ لَمْ يَخْلُقْ يَتَبَرَّءُونَ مِنْ فُلَانٍ وَ فُلَانٍ لَعَنَهُمَا اللَّهُ.


10. It is narrated to us by Ahmad Bin Muhammad, from Abu Yahya Al Wasity, from Dorost, from Ajlan Abu Salih who said, ‘A man entered to see Abu Abdullah (a.s.) and said to him (a.s.), ‘May I be sacrificed for you (a.s.)! This is the dome of Adam (as)?’ He (a.s.) said: ‘Yes, and in it are many domes. Behind this west of yours are thirty-nine wests, white lands filled with creatures being illuminated by its light. They do not disobey Allah for the blink of an eye. They don’t know whether Allah Created Adam (as) of not. They are Created to disavow from so and so, and so and so (Abu Bakr and Umar), may Allah Curse them both’’.




وَ رَوَى يَعْقُوبُ بْنُ يَزِيدَ عَنِ ابْنِ أَبِي عُمَيْرٍ عَنْ رِجَالِهِ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع‏ رَفَعَ‏ الْحَدِيثَ إِلَى الْحَسَنِ بْنِ عَلِيٍّ أَنَّهُ قَالَ: إِنَّ لِلَّهِ مَدِينَتَيْنِ إِحْدَاهُمَا بِالْمَشْرِقِ وَ الْأُخْرَى بِالْمَغْرِبِ عَلَيْهِمَا سُورٌ مِنْ حَدِيدٍ وَ عَلَى كُلِّ مَدِينَةٍ مِنْهُمَا سَبْعُونَ أَلْفَ أَلْفِ مِصْرَاعٍ مِنْ ذَهَبٍ وَ فِيهَا سَبْعُونَ أَلْفَ أَلْفِ لُغَةٍ يَتَكَلَّمُ كُلٌّ لُغَةً بِخِلَافِ لُغَةِ صَاحِبِهِ وَ أَنَا أَعْرِفُ جَمِيعَ اللُّغَاتِ وَ مَا فِيهِمَا وَ مَا بَيْنَهُمَا وَ مَا عَلَيْهِمَا حُجَّةٌ غَيْرِي وَ غَيْرُ الْحُسَيْنِ ع أَخِي.


11. And it is reported by Yaqoub Bin Yazeed, from Ibn Abu Umeyr, from his men, ‘From Abu Abdullah (a.s.), raising the Hadeeth to Al Hassan Bin Ali (a.s.) having said: ‘For Allah there are two cities, one of them in the east and the other in the west. Upon them are bridges of iron, and upon each city are seventy thousand thousand shutters of gold, and in these are a thousands thousands languages being spoke, each language being different to its sister language, and I (a.s.) recognise the entirety of the languages, and there is no Divine Authority in them, nor between them, nor upon them, apart from me (a.s.), and my (a.s.) brother (a.s.) Al-Husayn (a.s.)’’.
