حَدَّثَنَا السِّنْدِيُّ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ صَفْوَانَ بْنِ يَحْيَى عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ مُسْكَانَ عَنْ حُجْرٍ عَنْ حُمْرَانَ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع قَالَ يَقُولُ‏ مَا مَاتَ عَالِمٌ حَتَّى يُعْلِمَهُ اللَّهُ إِلَى مَنْ يُوصِي.


1. It is narrated to us by Al Sindy Bin Muhammad, from Safwan Bin Yahya, from Abdullah Bin Muskan, from Hujr, from Humran, ‘From Abu Abdullah (a.s.) having said: ‘A scholar (a.s.) does not pass away until Allah (azwj) Lets him (a.s.) know to whom he (a.s.) should bequeath’’.




حَدَّثَنَا أَحْمَدُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنِ الْحُسَيْنِ بْنِ سَعِيدٍ عَنْ فَضَالَةَ بْنِ أَيُّوبَ عَنْ عَمْرِو بْنِ أَبَانٍ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع قَالَ: مَا مَاتَ مِنَّا عَالِمٌ حَتَّى يُعْلِمَهُ اللَّهُ إِلَى مَنْ يُوصِي.


2. It is narrated to us by Ahmad Bin Muhammad, from Al Husayn Bin Saeed, from Fazala Bin Ayoub, from Amro Bin Aban, ‘From Abu Abdullah (a.s.) having said: ‘A scholar (a.s.) from us (a.s.) does not pass away until Allah (azwj) Lets him (a.s.) know to whom he (a.s.) should bequeath’’.




حَدَّثَنَا بالسِّنْدِيُّ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ صَفْوَانَ عَنِ ابْنِ مُسْكَانَ عَنْ حُجْرٍ عَنْ حُمْرَانَ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع قَالَ سَمِعْتُهُ يَقُولُ‏ مَا مَاتَ مِنَّا عَالِمٌ حَتَّى يُعْلِمَهُ اللَّهُ إِلَى مَنْ يُوصِي‏.


3. It is narrated to us by Al Sindy Bin Muhammad, from Safwan, from Ibn Muskam, from Hujr, from Humran, ‘From Abu Abdullah (a.s.), he (the narrator) said, ‘I heard him (a.s.) saying: ‘A knowledgeable one (a.s.) from us (a.s.) does not pass away until Allah (azwj) Lets him (a.s.) know to whom he (a.s.) should bequeath’’.




حَدَّثَنَا بمُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْحُسَيْنِ عَنِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ عَلِيٍّ عَنْ عَلِيِّ بْنِ مَنْصُورٍ عَنْ كُلْثُومٍ عَنْ عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَنِ الْخَزَّازِ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع قَالَ: كَانَ لِإِسْمَاعِيلَ بْنِ إِبْرَاهِيمَ ابْنٌ صَغِيرٌ يُحِبُّهُ وَ كَانَ هَوَى إِسْمَاعِيلَ فِيهِ فَأَبَى اللَّهُ ذَلِكَ فَقَالَ يَا إِسْمَاعِيلُ هُوَ فُلَانٌ فَلَمَّا قَضَى اللَّهُ الْمَوْتَ عَلَى إِسْمَاعِيلَ فَجَاءَ وَصِيُّهُ‏ وَ قَالَ يَا بُنَيَّ إِذَا حَضَرَ الْمَوْتُ فَافْعَلْ كَمَا فَعَلْتُ فَمِنْ أَجْلِ ذَلِكَ لَيْسَ يَمُوتُ إِمَامٌ إِلَّا أَخْبَرَهُ اللَّهُ إِلَى مَنْ يُوصِي‏.


4. It is narrated to us by Muhammad Bin Al Husayn, from Al Hassan Bin Ali, from Ali Bin Mansour, from Kulsum, from Abdul Rahman Al Khazzaz, ‘From Abu Abdullah (a.s.) having said: ‘There was a young son for Ismail Bin Ibrahim (as), he (as) used to love him and the opinion of Ismail (as) was regarding him, but Allah (azwj) Refused that and Said: “O Ismail (as)! He (the successor (as)) is so and so!” When Allah (azwj) decreed the expiry upon Ismail (as), he (as) came to his (as) successor (as) and said: ‘O my (as) son (as)! When the death presents, then do as I (as) have done’. Thus, due to that reason, an Imam (a.s.) does not pass away except Allah (azwj) Informs him (a.s.) to whom he (a.s.) should bequeath’’.
