حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدٌ عَنِ الْحَجَّالِ عَنْ ثَعْلَبَةَ عَنْ عَبْدِ الرَّحِيمِ عَنْ أَبِي جَعْفَرٍ ع‏ فِي هَذِهِ الْآيَةِ وَ كَذلِكَ نُرِي إِبْراهِيمَ مَلَكُوتَ السَّماواتِ وَ الْأَرْضِ وَ لِيَكُونَ مِنَ الْمُوقِنِينَ‏ قَالَ كُشِطَ لَهُ عَنِ الْأَرْضِ حَتَّى رَآهَا وَ مَنْ فِيهَا وَ عَنِ السَّمَاءِ حَتَّى رَآهَا وَ مَنْ فِيهَا وَ الْمَلَكِ الَّذِي يَحْمِلُهَا وَ الْعَرْشِ وَ مَنْ عَلَيْهِ وَ كَذَلِكَ أُرِيَ صَاحِبُكُمْ‏.


1. It is narrated to us by Muhammad Bin Al Hajjal, from Sa’alba, from Abdul Raheem, ‘From Abu Ja’far (a.s.) regarding this Verse: And like that We Showed Ibrahim the Kingdoms of the skies and the earth and for he to become from the convinced ones [6:75], said: ‘The earth was scraped off for him (as) until he (as) saw who was in it, and from the sky until he (as) saw who was in it, and the Angel who was carrying it, and the Throne and one who was upon it, and like that was shown to your Master (a.s.) (meaning himself (a.s.))’’.




حَدَّثَنَا أَحْمَدُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنِ ابْنِ الْمُغِيرَةِ عَنِ ابْنِ مُسْكَانَ قَالَ قَالَ أَبُو عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع‏ وَ كَذلِكَ نُرِي إِبْراهِيمَ مَلَكُوتَ السَّماواتِ وَ الْأَرْضِ وَ لِيَكُونَ مِنَ الْمُوقِنِينَ‏ قَالَ كُشِطَ لِإِبْرَاهِيمَ ع السَّمَاوَاتُ السَّبْعُ حَتَّى نَظَرَ إِلَى مَا فَوْقَ الْعَرْشِ وَ كُشِطَ لَهُ الْأَرْضُ حَتَّى رَأَى مَا فِي الْهَوَاءِ وَ فُعِلَ بِمُحَمَّدٍ ص مِثْلُ ذَلِكَ وَ إِنِّي لَأَرَى صَاحِبَكُمْ وَ الْأَئِمَّةَ مِنْ بَعْدِهِ قَدْ فُعِلَ بِهِمْ مِثْلُ ذَلِكَ‏.


2. It is narrated to us by Ahmad Bin Muhammad, from his father, from Ibn Al Mugheira, from Ibn Muskan who said, ‘Abu Abdullah (a.s.) said: ‘And like that We Showed Ibrahim the Kingdoms of the skies and the earth and for he to become from the convinced ones [6:75]. The seventh sky was scraped off for Ibrahim (as) until he (as) saw what was above the earth, and the earth was scraped off for him (as) until he (as) saw what was in the atmosphere, and what was done for Muhammad (saww) was similar to that, as your Master (a.s.) (meaning himself (a.s.)) has been shown, and the Imams (a.s.) to come after him (saww), it would be done with them (a.s.) similar to that’’.




حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ عِيسَى عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ الْمُؤْمِنِ عَنْ عَلِيِّ بْنِ حَسَّانَ عَنْ أَبِي دَاوُدَ السَّبِيعِيِّ عَنْ بُرَيْدَةَ الْأَسْلَمِيِّ عَنْ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ ص قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ص‏ يَا عَلِيُّ إِنَّ اللَّهَ أَشْهَدَكَ مَعِي سَبْعَ مَوَاطِنَ حَتَّى ذَكَرَ الْمَوْطِنَ الثَّانِيَ أَتَانِي جَبْرَئِيلُ فَأَسْرَى بِي إِلَى السَّمَاءِ فَقَالَ أَيْنَ أَخُوكَ فَقُلْتُ وَدَّعْتُهُ خَلْفِي قَالَ فَقَالَ فَادْعُ اللَّهَ يَأْتِيكَ بِهِ قَالَ فَدَعَوْتُ فَإِذَا أَنْتَ مَعِي فَكُشِطَ لِي عَنِ السَّمَاوَاتِ السَّبْعِ وَ الْأَرَضِينَ السَّبْعِ حَتَّى رَأَيْتُ سُكَّانَهَا وَ عُمَّارَهَا وَ مَوْضِعَ كُلِّ مَلَكٍ مِنْهَا فَلَمْ أَرَ مِنْ ذَلِكَ شَيْئاً إِلَّا وَ قَدْ رَأَيْتَهُ كَمَا رَأَيْتُهُ‏.

Allah Kept you (a.s.) as a witness along with me (saww) in seven places’, until he (saww) mentioned the second place: ‘Jibraeel (as) came to me (saww) and ascended with me (saww) to the sky. He (as) said: ‘Where is your (saww) brother (a.s.)?’ I (saww) said: ‘I (saww) left him (a.s.) behind me (saww)’. He (as) said: ‘Supplicated to Allah to Make him (a.s.) come to you (saww)’. He (saww) said: ‘I (saww) supplicated, and there you (a.s.) were with me (saww). The seven skies were scrapped off for me (a.s.) until I (saww) saw its dwellers and its buildings, and place of every Angel from these. I (saww) did not see anything from that except and you (a.s.) saw it just as I (saww) saw it’’.




مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ عِيسَى عَنِ الْبَرْقِيِّ عَنِ النَّضْرِ بْنِ سُوَيْدٍ عَنْ يَحْيَى الْحَلَبِيِّ عَنْ أَبِي بَصِيرٍ قَالَ: قُلْتُ لِأَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع هَلْ رَأَى مُحَمَّدٌ ص‏ مَلَكُوتَ السَّماواتِ وَ الْأَرْضِ‏ كَمَا رَأَى إِبْرَاهِيمُ قَالَ نَعَمْ وَ صَاحِبُكُمْ‏.

حَدَّثَنَا الْحَسَنُ بْنُ عَلِيِّ بْنِ النُّعْمَانِ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنِ ابْنِ مُسْكَانَ عَنْ أَبِي بَصِيرٍ عَنْ أَحَدِهِمَا ع قَالَ: قُلْتُ لَهُ‏ وَ كَذلِكَ نُرِي إِبْراهِيمَ مَلَكُوتَ السَّماواتِ وَ الْأَرْضِ‏ قَالَ كُشِفَتْ لَهُ السَّمَاوَاتُ وَ الْأَرْضُ حَتَّى رَآهَا وَ رَأَى مَا فِيهَا وَ الْعَرْشَ وَ مَنْ عَلَيْهِ قَالَ قُلْتُ فَأُوتِيَ مُحَمَّدٌ ص مِثْلَ مَا أُوتِيَ إِبْرَاهِيمُ ع قَالَ نَعَمْ وَ صَاحِبُكُمْ هَذَا أَيْضاً.

He (the narrator) said, ‘I said, ‘Was Muhammad (saww) Given similar to what Ibrahim (as) had been Given?’ He (a.s.) said: ‘Yes, and this Master (a.s.) of yours as well’’.




حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ اللَّهِ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنِ ابْنِ الْمُغِيرَةِ عَنْ مَنْصُورِ بْنِ حَازِمٍ عَنْ عَبْدِ الرَّحِيمِ عَنْ أَبِي جَعْفَرٍ ع قَالَ: سَأَلْتُهُ عَنْ قَوْلِ اللَّهِ عَزَّ وَ جَلَ‏ وَ كَذلِكَ نُرِي إِبْراهِيمَ مَلَكُوتَ السَّماواتِ وَ الْأَرْضِ وَ لِيَكُونَ مِنَ الْمُوقِنِينَ‏ قَالَ كُشِطَ لَهُ السَّمَاوَاتُ وَ الْأَرْضُ حَتَّى رَآهَا وَ مَا فِيهَا وَ حَتَّى رَأَى الْعَرْشَ وَ مَنْ عَلَيْهِ وَ فُعِلَ ذَلِكَ بِرَسُولِ اللَّهِ ص.

He (a.s.) said: ‘The skies and the earth were uncovered for him (as) until he (as) saw these and whatever was in them, and to the extent that he (as) saw the Throne and the one upon it, and that was done with Rasool-Allah (saww)’’.




وَ رَوَى عَبْدُ الرَّحِيمِ‏ وَ فُعِلَ ذَلِكَ بِصَاحِبِكُمْ.


7. And it is reported by Abdul Raheem: ‘And that was done with your Master (a.s.)’.




وَ رَوَى أَبُو بَصِيرٍ وَ مَنْصُورٌ وَ لَا أَرَى صَاحِبَكُمْ إِلَّا وَ قَدْ فُعِلَ بِهِ ذَلِكَ.


8. And it is reported by Abu Baseer and Mansour: ‘And do not view your Master (a.s.) except and that has been done with him (a.s.)’’.




حَدَّثَنَا إِسْمَاعِيلُ عَنْ صَفْوَانَ بْنِ يَحْيَى عَنْ أَيُّوبَ عَنْ أَبِي بَصِيرٍ وَ لَا أَرَى صَاحِبَكُمْ إِلَّا وَ قَدْ فُعِلَ بِهِ ذَلِكَ.

حَدَّثَنَا أَحْمَدُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ عَلِيِّ بْنِ الْحَكَمِ أَوْ غَيْرِهِ عَنْ سَيْفِ بْنِ عَمِيرَةَ عَنْ بَشَّارٍ عَنْ أَبِي دَاوُدَ عَنْ بُرَيْدَةَ قَالَ: كُنْتُ جَالِساً مَعَ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ ص وَ عَلِيٌّ ع مَعَهُ إِذْ قَالَ يَا عَلِيُّ أَ لَمْ أُشْهِدْكَ مَعِي سَبْعَ مَوَاطِنَ حَتَّى ذَكَرَ الْمَوْطِنَ الرَّابِعَ لَيْلَةَ الْجُمُعَةِ أُرِيتُ مَلَكُوتَ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَ الْأَرْضِ رُفِعَتْ لِي حَتَّى نَظَرْتُ إِلَى مَا فِيهَا فَاشْتَقْتُ إِلَيْكَ فَدَعَوْتُ اللَّهَ فَإِذَا أَنْتَ مَعِي فَلَمْ أَرَ مِنْ ذَلِكَ شَيْئاً إِلَّا وَ قَدْ رَأَيْتَ‏.

Did I (saww) not keep you (a.s.) as a witness with me (saww) in seven places? Until he (a.s.) mentioned the fourth place: ‘On the night of Friday I (saww) saw Kingdoms of the skies and the earth. These were raised for me (saww) until I (saww) looked at what was in it. I (saww) yearned for you (a.s.) and supplicated to Allah , and there you (a.s.) were with me (saww). So, I (saww) did not see anything from that except and you (a.s.) have seen it’’.
