حَدَّثَنَا أَحْمَدُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْحُسَيْنِ مَعاً عَنِ ابْنِ مَحْبُوبٍ عَنِ ابْنِ رِئَابٍ عَنِ ابْنِ بُكَيْرٍ قَالَ كَانَ أَبُو جَعْفَرٍ ع يَقُولُ‏ إِنَّ اللَّهَ أَخَذَ مِيثَاقَ شِيعَتِنَا بِالْوَلَايَةِ لَنَا وَ هُمْ ذَرٌّ يَوْمَ‏ أَخَذَ الْمِيثَاقَ عَلَى الذَّرِّ بِالْإِقْرَارِ لَهُ بِالرُّبُوبِيَّةِ وَ لِمُحَمَّدٍ ص بِالنُّبُوَّةِ وَ عَرَضَ اللَّهُ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ ص أُمَّتَهُ فِي الطِّينِ وَ هُمْ أَظِلَّةٌ وَ خَلَقَهُمْ مِنَ الطِّينَةِ الَّتِي خَلَقَ مِنْهَا آدَمَ وَ خَلَقَ اللَّهُ أَرْوَاحَ شِيعَتِنَا قَبْلَ أَبْدَانِهِمْ بِأَلْفَيْ عَامٍ وَ عَرَضَهُمْ عَلَيْهِ وَ عَرَّفَهُمْ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ ص وَ عَرَّفَهُمْ عَلِيّاً ع وَ نَحْنُ نَعْرِفُهُمْ فِي لَحْنِ الْقَوْلِ‏.


1. It is narrated to us by Ahmad Bin Muhammad and Muhammad Bin Al Husayn both together, from Ibn Mahboub, from Ibn Raid, from Ibn Bukeyr who said, ‘Abu Ja’far (a.s.) was saying: ‘Allah (azwj) Took the Covenant of our (a.s.) Shias with the Wilayah for us (a.s.), they were particles on the day. He (azwj) Took the Covenant upon the particles with the acknowledgment to Him (azwj) with the Lordship, and to Muhammad (saww) with the Prophet-hood. And Allah (azwj) Presented unto Muhammad (saww), his (saww) community, in the clay, and they were shadows, and Created them from the clay which He (azwj) had Created Adam (as) from, and Created the souls of our (a.s.) Shias before their bodies by two thousand (millenniums) and Presented them to him (saww), and Rasool-Allah (saww) recognised them and Ali (a.s.) recognised them, and we (a.s.) recognise them in the tone of the word’’.




حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ أَحْمَدَ عَنِ ابْنِ يَزِيدَ عَنِ ابْنِ مَحْبُوبٍ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ الْفُضَيْلِ عَنْ أَبِي الْحَسَنِ ع‏ فِي قَوْلِ اللَّهِ عَزَّ وَ جَلَ‏ يُوفُونَ بِالنَّذْرِ قَالَ يُوفُونَ بِالنَّذْرِ الَّذِي أَخَذَ عَلَيْهِمْ فِي الْمِيثَاقِ مِنْ وَلَايَتِنَا.


2. It is narrated to us by Muhammad Bin Ahmad, from Ibn Yazeed, from Ibn Mahboub, from Muhammad Bin Al Fuzeyl, ‘From Abu Al-Hassan (a.s.) regarding Words of Allah (azwj) Mighty and Majestic: They are fulfilling the vows [76:7]. He (a.s.) said: ‘They fulfil the vows of our (a.s.) Wilayah which were Taken upon them during the Covenant’’.




حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ حَمَّادٍ الْكُوفِيُّ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنْ نَصْرِ بْنِ مُزَاحِمٍ عَنْ عَمْرِو بْنِ شِمْرٍ عَنْ جَابِرٍ عَنْ أَبِي جَعْفَرٍ ع قَالَ: إِنَّ اللَّهَ أَخَذَ مِيثَاقَ شِيعَتِنَا مِنْ صُلْبِ آدَمَ فَنَعْرِفُ بِذَلِكَ حُبَّ الْمُحِبِّ وَ إِنْ أَظْهَرَ خِلَافَ ذَلِكَ بِلِسَانِهِ وَ نَعْرِفُ بُغْضَ الْمُبْغِضِ وَ إِنْ أَظْهَرَ حُبَّنَا أَهْلَ الْبَيْتِ‏.


3. It is narrated to us by Muhammad Bin Hammad Al Kufy, from his father, from Nasr Bin Muzahim, from Amro Bin Shimr, from Jabir, ‘From Abu Ja’far (a.s.) having said: ‘Allah (azwj) Took the Covenant of our (a.s.) Shias from the Sulb (ribs) of Adam (as). Thus, we (a.s.) recognise the love of the lover and even if he were to display opposite to that by his tongue, and we (a.s.) recognise hatred of the hating one and even if he were to display our (a.s.) love, People (a.s.) of the Household’’.
