حَدَّثَنَا بابْنُ أَبِي الْخَطَّابِ عَنِ ابْنِ أَسْبَاطٍ عَنِ الْحَكَمِ بْنِ مِسْكِينٍ عَنْ عُبَيْدِ بْنِ زُرَارَةَ وَ جَمَاعَةٍ مَعَهُ قَالُوا سَمِعْنَا أَبَا عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع يَقُولُ‏ يَعْرِفُ الْإِمَامُ الَّذِي بَعْدَهُ عِلْمَ مَنْ كَانَ قَبْلَهُ فِي آخِرِ دَقِيقَةٍ تَبْقَى مِنْ رُوحِهِ‏.


1. It is narrated to us by Ibn Abu Al Khattab, from Ibn Asbat, from Al Hakam Bin Miskeen, from Ubeyd Bin Zurara, and a group with him. They said, ‘We heard Abu Abdullah (a.s.) saying: ‘The Imam (a.s.) who is after him (a.s.) recognises the knowledge of the one who was before him (a.s.) in the last minute remaining from his (a.s.) soul’’.




حَدَّثَنَا بأَحْمَدُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنِ الْأَهْوَازِيِّ عَنِ ابْنِ أَسْبَاطٍ عَنِ الْحَكَمِ بْنِ مِسْكِينٍ عَنْ بَعْضِ أَصْحَابِهِ قَالَ: قُلْتُ لِأَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع مَتَى يَعْرِفُ الْآخَرُ مَا عِنْدَ الْأَوَّلِ قَالَ فِي آخِرِ دَقِيقَةٍ تَبْقَى مِنْ رُوحِهِ‏.


2. It is narrated to us by Ahmad Bin Muhammad, from Al Ahwazy, from Ibn Asbaat, from Al Hakam Bin Miskeed, from one of his companions who said, ‘I said to Abu Abdullah (a.s.), ‘When does the latter Imam (a.s.) know what is with the former?’ He (a.s.) said: ‘In the last minute remaining from his (a.s.) soul’’.




حَدَّثَنَا بابْنُ يَزِيدَ عَنِ ابْنِ أَسْبَاطٍ عَنْ بَعْضِ أَصْحَابِهِ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع قَالَ: قُلْتُ الْإِمَامُ مَتَى يَعْرِفُ إِمَامَتَهُ وَ يَنْتَهِي الْأَمْرُ إِلَيْهِ قَالَ فِي آخِرِ دَقِيقَةٍ مِنْ حَيَاةِ الْأَوَّلِ‏.


3. It is narrated to us by Ibn Yazeed, from Ibn Asbaat, from one of his companions, ‘From Abdullah (a.s.), he (the narrator) said, ‘I said, ‘The Imam (a.s.), when does he (a.s.) know of his (a.s.) Imamate and the ending of the command to him (a.s.)?’ He (a.s.) said: ‘In the last minute from the life of the former’’.
