حَدَّثَنَا أَحْمَدُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنِ الْحُسَيْنِ بْنِ سَعِيدٍ عَنْ فَضَالَةَ بْنِ أَيُّوبَ عَنْ عَلِيِّ بْنِ‏ أَبِي حَمْزَةَ عَنْ سَيْفِ بْنِ عَمِيرَةَ عَنْ أَبِي بَصِيرٍ عَنِ الْحَرْثِ بْنِ الْمُغِيرَةِ قَالَ: كُنَّا عِنْدَ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع فَسَأَلَهُ رَجُلٌ عَنْ قَوْلِ اللَّهِ تَعَالَى‏ كُلُّ شَيْ‏ءٍ هالِكٌ إِلَّا وَجْهَهُ‏ فَقَالَ مَا يَقُولُونَ قُلْتُ يَقُولُونَ هَلَكَ‏ كُلُّ شَيْ‏ءٍ إِلَّا وَجْهَهُ فَقَالَ سُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ لَقَدْ قَالُوا عَظِيماً إِنَّمَا عَنَى كُلَّ شَيْ‏ءٍ هَالِكٌ إِلَّا وَجْهَهُ الَّذِي يُؤْتَى مِنْهُ وَ نَحْنُ وَجْهُهُ الَّذِي يُؤْتَى مِنْهُ.


1. It is narrated to us by Ahmad Bin Muhammad, from Al Husayn Bin Saeed, from Fazalat Bin Ayoub, from Ali Bin Abu Hamza, from Sayf Bin Ameyra, from Abu baser, from Al Hars Bin Al Mugheira who said, ‘We were in the presence of Abu Abdullah (a.s.), and a man asked him (a.s.) about the Words of Allah (azwj): All things will perish except for His Face [28:88]. He (a.s.) said: ‘What are they saying?’ I said, ‘All things would perish except His (azwj) Face’. He (a.s.) said: ‘Glory be to Allah (azwj)! They have said a grievous (thing)! But rather He (azwj) Means, all things will perish except His (azwj) Face which He (azwj) can be Accessed from, and we (a.s.) are His (azwj) Face which He (azwj) can be Accessed from it’’.




حَدَّثَنَا الْحَجَّالُ عَنْ صَالِحِ بْنِ السِّنْدِيِّ عَنِ ابْنِ مَحْبُوبٍ عَنِ الْأَحْوَلِ عَنْ سَلَّامِ بْنِ الْمُسْتَنِيرِ قَالَ: سَأَلْتُ أَبَا جَعْفَرٍ ع عَنْ قَوْلِ اللَّهِ‏ كُلُّ شَيْ‏ءٍ هالِكٌ إِلَّا وَجْهَهُ‏ قَالَ نَحْنُ وَ اللَّهِ وَجْهُهُ الَّذِي قَالَ وَ لَنْ يَهْلِكَ يوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ مَنْ أَتَى اللَّهَ بِمَا أَمَرَ بِهِ مِنْ طَاعَتِنَا وَ مُوَالاتِنَا ذَاكَ الْوَجْهُ الَّذِي قَالَ اللَّهُ‏ كُلُّ شَيْ‏ءٍ هالِكٌ إِلَّا وَجْهَهُ‏ لَيْسَ مِنَّا مَيِّتٌ يَمُوتُ إِلَّا خَلَّفَ مِنْهُ إِلَى يَوْمِ الْقِيَامَةِ.


2. It is narrated to us by Al Hajal, from Salih Bin Al Sindy, from Ibn Mahboub, from Al Ahowl, from Sallam Bin Al Mustaneer who said, ‘I asked Abu Ja’far (a.s.) about Words of Allah (azwj): All things will perish except for His Face [28:88]. He (a.s.) said: ‘We (a.s.), by Allah (azwj), are the Face which He (azwj) Said, and he will never perish on the Day of Qiyamah, one who comes to Allah (azwj) with what He (azwj) had Commanded him with, from being obedient to us (a.s.) and our (a.s.) Wilayah. That is the Face which Allah (azwj) Said: All things will perish except for His Face [28:88]. There isn’t any one (a.s.) from us (a.s.) passing away except and there is a replacement from Him (azwj), up to the Day of Qiyamah’’.




حَدَّثَنَا ابْنُ يَزِيدَ عَنِ ابْنِ أَبِي عُمَيْرٍ عَنْ مَنْصُورٍ عَنْ جَلِيسٍ لِأَبِي حَمْزَةَ عَنْ أَبِي حَمْزَةَ قَالَ: قُلْتُ لِأَبِي جَعْفَرٍ ع جَعَلَنِيَ اللَّهُ فِدَاكَ أَخْبِرْنِي عَنْ قَوْلِ اللَّهِ تَبَارَكَ وَ تَعَالَى‏ كُلُّ شَيْ‏ءٍ هالِكٌ إِلَّا وَجْهَهُ‏ قَالَ يَا فُلَانُ فَيَهْلِكُ كُلُّ شَيْ‏ءٍ وَ يَبْقَى الْوَجْهُ‏ اللَّهُ أَعْظَمُ مِنْ أَنْ يُوصَفَ‏ وَ لَكِنَّ مَعْنَاهَا كُلُّ شَيْ‏ءٍ هَالِكٌ إِلَّا دِينَهُ نَحْنُ الْوَجْهُ الَّذِي يُؤْتَى مِنْهُ لَمْ نَزَلْ فِي عِبَادِ اللَّهِ مَا دَامَ لِلَّهِ فِيهِمْ رَوِيَّةٌ قُلْتُ وَ مَا الرَّوِيَّةُ جَعَلَنِيَ اللَّهُ فِدَاكَ قَالَ حَاجَةٌ فَإِذَا لَمْ يَكُنْ لَهُ فِيهِمْ حَاجَةٌ رَفَعَنَا إِلَيْهِ فَيَصْنَعُ بِنَا مَا أَحَبَ‏.


3. It is narrated to us by Al Hajal, from Salih Bin Al Sindy, from Ibn Umeyr, from Mansour, from a companions of Abu Hamza, from Abu Hamza who said, ‘I said to Abu Ja’far (a.s.), ‘May Allah (azwj) Make me to be sacrificed for you (a.s.)! Inform me about Words of Allah (azwj) Blessed and Exalted: All things will perish except for His Face [28:88]. He (a.s.) said: ‘O so and so! All things will perish and the Face would remain, Allah (azwj) is more Magnificent from being described, but its meaning is all things will perish except His (azwj) Religion. We (a.s.) are the Face which He (azwj) can be access to from it. We (a.s.) will not cease to be among servants of Allah (azwj) for as long as for Allah (azwj) there is a ‘Rawiya’ for them’. I said, ‘What is the ‘Rawiya’, may I be sacrificed for you (a.s.)?’ He (a.s.) said: ‘Need. When there does not happen to be any need for Him (azwj) regarding them, He (azwj) will Raise us to Him (azwj) and Do with us (a.s.) what He (azwj) Loves’’.




حَدَّثَنَا أَحْمَدُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنِ الْحُسَيْنِ بْنِ سَعِيدٍ عَنْ عَلِيِّ بْنِ حَدِيدٍ عَنْ عَلِيِّ بْنِ أَبِي الْمُغِيرَةِ عَنْ أَبِي سَلَّامٍ النَّحَّاسِ عَنْ سَوْرَةَ بْنِ كُلَيْبٍ قَالَ سَمِعْتُ أَبَا جَعْفَرٍ ع يَقُولُ‏ نَحْنُ الْمَثَانِي الَّذِي أَعْطَاهُ اللَّهُ‏ نَبِيَّنَا ص وَ نَحْنُ وَجْهُ اللَّهِ فِي الْأَرْضِ نَتَقَلَّبُ بَيْنَ‏ أَظْهُرِكُمْ عَرَفَنَا مَنْ عَرَفَنَا وَ جَهِلَنَا مَنْ جَهِلَنَا فَمَنْ جَهِلَنَا فَأَمَامَهُ الْيَقِينُ.


4. It is narrated to us by Ahmad Bin Muhammad, from Al Husayn Bin Saeed, from Ali Bin Hadeed, from Ali Bin Abu Al Mugheira, from Abu Sallam Al Nahhas, from Sowrat Bin Kuleyb who said, ‘I heard Abu Ja’far (a.s.) saying: ‘We (a.s.) are the double which Allah (azwj) Gave His (azwj) Prophet (saww), and we (a.s.) are the Face of Allah (azwj) in the earth. We (a.s.) turn around between your midst. He recognises us (a.s.), one who recognises us (a.s.), and he is ignorant of us (a.s.) one who is ignorant of us (a.s.). So, the one who is ignorant of us (a.s.), in front of him is the certainty’’(of their destruction).




حَدَّثَنَا أَحْمَدُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنِ الْحُسَيْنِ بْنِ سَعِيدٍ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ إِسْمَاعِيلَ عَنْ مَنْصُورٍ عَنْ أَبِي حَمْزَةَ عَنْ أَبِي جَعْفَرٍ ع قَالَ: قُلْتُ لَهُ جُعِلْتُ فِدَاكَ أَخْبِرْنِي عَنْ قَوْلِ اللَّهِ تَعَالَى‏ كُلُّ شَيْ‏ءٍ هالِكٌ إِلَّا وَجْهَهُ‏ قَالَ يَا فُلَانُ يَهْلِكُ كُلُّ شَيْ‏ءٍ وَ يَبْقَى الْوَجْهُ اللَّهُ أَعْظَمُ مِنْ أَنْ يُوصَفَ وَ لَكِنْ مَعْنَاهَا كُلُّ شَيْ‏ءٍ هَالِكٌ إِلَّا دِينَهُ وَ نَحْنُ الْوَجْهُ الَّذِي يُؤْتَى اللَّهُ مِنْهُ.


5. It is narrated to us by Ahmad Bin Muhammad, from Al Husayn Bin Saeed, from Muhammad Bin Ismail, from Mabnsour, from Abu Hamza, ‘From Abu Ja’far (a.s.), he (the narrator) said, ‘I said to him (a.s.), ‘May I be sacrificed for you (a.s.)! Inform me about the Words of Allah (azwj) the Exalted: All things will perish except for His Face [28:88]’. He (a.s.) said: ‘O so and so! All things to perish and the Face remains, Allah (azwj) Greater than to be described, but its meaning is, all thing will perish except His (azwj) Religion, and we (a.s.) are the Face which Allah (azwj) can be accessed from it’’.




حَدَّثَنَا أَحْمَدُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنِ الْحُسَيْنِ عَنْ فَضَالَةَ عَنِ الْبَطَائِنِيِّ عَنِ ابْنِ عَمِيرَةَ عَنْ أَبِي بَصِيرٍ عَنِ الْحَارِثِ بْنِ الْمُغِيرَةِ قَالَ: كُنَّا عِنْدَ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع فَسَأَلَهُ رَجُلٌ عَنْ قَوْلِ اللَّهِ تَبَارَكَ وَ تَعَالَى‏ كُلُّ شَيْ‏ءٍ هالِكٌ إِلَّا وَجْهَهُ‏ فَقَالَ مَا يَقُولُونَ قُلْتُ يَقُولُونَ هَلَكَ كُلُّ شَيْ‏ءٍ إِلَّا وَجْهَهُ فَقَالَ سُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ لَقَدْ قَالُوا عَظِيماً إِنَّمَا عَنَى كُلَّ شَيْ‏ءٍ هَالِكٌ إِلَّا وَجْهَهُ الَّذِي يُؤْتَى مِنْهُ وَ نَحْنُ وَجْهُهُ الَّذِي يُؤْتَى مِنْهُ‏.
