حَدَّثَنَا أَحْمَدُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنِ الْبَزَنْطِيِّ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ حُمْرَانَ عَنْ أَسْوَدَ بْنِ سَعِيدٍ قَالَ‏ كُنْتُ عِنْدَ أَبِي جَعْفَرٍ ع فَأَنْشَأَ يَقُولُ ابْتِدَاءً مِنْ غَيْرِ أَنْ يُسْأَلَ نَحْنُ حُجَّةُ اللَّهِ وَ نَحْنُ بَابُ اللَّهِ وَ نَحْنُ لِسَانُ اللَّهِ وَ نَحْنُ وَجْهُ اللَّهِ وَ نَحْنُ عَيْنُ اللَّهِ فِي خَلْقِهِ وَ نَحْنُ وُلَاةُ أَمْرِ اللَّهِ فِي عِبَادِهِ‏.


1. It is narrated to us by Ahmad Bin Muhammad, from al Bazanty, from Muhammad bin Humran, from Aswad Bin Saeed who said, ‘I was in the presence of Abu Abdullah (a.s.) and he (a.s.) composed saying initialling from without having been asked: ‘We (a.s.) are the Divine Authorities of Allah , and we (a.s.) are the door of Allah , and we (a.s.) are the Tongue of Allah , and we (a.s.) are the Face of Allah , and we (a.s.) are the Eye of Allah among His creatures, and we (a.s.) are the Masters of the Commands of Allah among His servants’’.

أَحْمَدُ بْنُ مُوسَى عَنِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ مُوسَى الْخَشَّابِ عَنْ عَلِيِّ بْنِ حَسَّانَ‏ عَنْ عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَنِ بْنِ كَثِيرٍ قَالَ سَمِعْتُ أَبَا عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع يَقُولُ‏ نَحْنُ وُلَاةُ أَمْرِ اللَّهِ وَ خَزَنَةُ عِلْمِ اللَّهِ وَ عَيْبَةُ وَحْيِ اللَّهِ وَ أَهْلُ دِينِ اللَّهِ وَ عَلَيْنَا نَزَلَ كِتَابُ اللَّهِ وَ بِنَا عُبِدَ اللَّهُ وَ لَوْلَانَا مَا عُرِفَ اللَّهُ وَ نَحْنُ وَرَثَةُ نَبِيِّ اللَّهِ وَ عِتْرَتُهُ‏.


3. Ahmad Bin Musa, from Al Hassan Bin Musa Al Khashab, from Ali Bin Hassan, from Abdul Rahman Bin Kaseer who said, ‘I heard Abu Abdullah (a.s.) saying: ‘We (a.s.) are the Masters of the Commands of Allah , and Treasures of the Knowledge of Allah , and receptacle of the Revelation of Allah , and People (a.s.) of the Religion of Allah , and upon us (a.s.) descended the Book of Allah , and through us (a.s.) Allah is being worshipped, and had it not been for us (a.s.), Allah would not have been recognised, and we (a.s.) are the inheritors of the Prophet (saww) of Allah and are his (saww) family (a.s.)’’.

4. It is narrated to us by Muhammad Bin Abdul Jabbar, from Al Barqy, from Fazalat Bin Ayoub, from Abdullah Bin Abu Yafour who said, ‘O Ibn AbuYafour! Allah Blessed and Exalted is One, Alone with the Oneness, Individual with His Command. So, He Created creatures and particularised them (a.s.) for that Command. We (a.s.) are they (a.s.), O Ibn Yafour! We (a.s.) are the Divine Authorities of Allah among His servants and His witnesses among His creatures, and His trustees, and His treasurers upon His Knowledge, and the callers to His way, and the ones standing with that. Thus, the one who obeys us (a.s.), so he has obeyed Allah ’’.

Allah would Connect with him’. Then he (a.s.) recited this Verse: Lest a soul should be saying, ‘O regret, upon what I wasted regarding the Side of Allah, and I was from the mocking ones!’ [39:56]’’.

6. It is narrated to us by Ahmad Bin Muhammad, from Al Husayn Bin Saeed, from Muhammad Bin Ismail, from Hamza Bin Bazie, from Ali Al Saie who said, ‘I asked Abu Al-Hassan Al-Ridha (a.s.)

He (a.s.) said: ‘The Side of Allah , it is Amir Al-Momineen (a.s.), and like that are the ones from the successors (a.s.) from after him (a.s.) with the elevated position, until the matter ends up to their (a.s.) last one, and Allah is most Knowing with the ones (a.s.) who would be existing from after him (a.s.)’’.

7. It is narrated to us by Abbad Bin Suleyman, from Muhammad Bin Suleyman, from his father who said, ‘Abu Abdullah (a.s.) said: ‘Allah Blessed and Exalted Selected us (a.s.) for Himself , and Made us (a.s.) to be His elites from His creatures, and His trustees upon His Revelations, and His treasurers, and place of His Secrets and receptacles of His Knowledge. Then He Gave us (a.s.) the intercession (right to intercede). We (a.s.) are His listening Ear, and His speaking Tongue by His Permission, and His trustees upon whatever is Revealed, from an excuse and warning and argument’’.
