In the sky there are seventy types of Angels. If the people of the earth, all of them were to be united upon them to count on type of them, they would not be able to count them, and they are making it a Religion with our (a.s.) Wilayah’’.




وَ رَوَى عَلِيُّ بْنُ إِسْمَاعِيلَ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ الْفُضَيْلِ عَنْ أَبِي الصَّبَّاحِ عَنْ أَبِي جَعْفَرٍ ع‏ بِمِثْلِ ذَلِكَ.

In the sky there are seventy types of Angels. It the people of the earth were to gather upon counting the number of types of them, they would not be able to count them, and they are making it a Religion with our (a.s.) Wilayah’’.




حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْحُسَيْنِ عَنْ إِبْرَاهِيمَ بْنِ أَبِي الْبِلَادِ عَنْ سَدِيرٍ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع قَالَ: إِنَّ أَمْرَكُمْ هَذَا عُرِضَ عَلَى الْمَلَائِكَةِ فَلَمْ يُقِرَّ بِهِ إِلَّا الْمُقَرَّبُونَ وَ عُرِضَ عَلَى الْأَنْبِيَاءِ فَلَمْ يُقِرَّ بِهِ إِلَّا الْمُرْسَلُونَ وَ عُرِضَ عَلَى الْمُؤْمِنِينَ فَلَمْ يُقِرَّ بِهِ إِلَّا الْمُمْتَحَنُونَ‏.

Do you see that the ones Chosen for our (a.s.) matter (Wilayah), from the Angels were the ones of Proximity, and from the Prophets (as) were the Messengers (as), and from the Momineen were the Examined ones?’’




حَدَّثَنَا أَحْمَدُ بْنُ مُوسَى عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ أَحْمَدَ مَوْلَى حَرْبٍ عَنْ أَبِي جَعْفَرٍ الْحَمَّامِيِّ الْكُوفِيِّ عَنِ الْأَزْهَرِ الْبِطِّيخِيِّ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع قَالَ: إِنَّ اللَّهَ عَرَضَ وَلَايَةَ أَمِيرِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ ع فَقَبِلَهَا الْمَلَائِكَةُ وَ أَبَاهَا مَلَكٌ يُقَالُ لَهُ فُطْرُسُ فَكَسَرَ اللَّهُ جَنَاحَهُ فَلَمَّا وُلِدَ الْحُسَيْنُ بْنُ عَلِيٍّ ع بَعَثَ اللَّهُ جَبْرَئِيلَ فِي سَبْعِينَ أَلْفَ مَلَكٍ إِلَى مُحَمَّدٍ ص يُهَنِّئُهُمْ بِوِلَادَتِهِ فَمَرَّ بِفُطْرُسَ فَقَالَ لَهُ فُطْرُسُ يَا جَبْرَئِيلُ إِلَى أَيْنَ تَذْهَبُ قَالَ بَعَثَنِيَ اللَّهُ إِلَى مُحَمَّدٍ ص أُهَنِّئُهُمْ‏ بِمَوْلُودٍ وُلِدَ فِي هَذِهِ اللَّيْلَةِ فَقَالَ لَهُ فُطْرُسُ احْمِلْنِي مَعَكَ وَ سَلْ مُحَمَّداً يَدْعُو لِي فَقَالَ لَهُ جَبْرَئِيلُ ارْكَبْ جَنَاحِي فَرَكِبَ جَنَاحَهُ فَأَتَى مُحَمَّداً فَدَخَلَ عَلَيْهِ وَ هَنَّأَهُ فَقَالَ لَهُ يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ إِنَّ فُطْرُسَ بَيْنِي وَ بَيْنَهُ أُخُوَّةٌ وَ سَأَلَنِي أَنْ أَسْأَلَكَ أَنْ تَدْعُوَ اللَّهَ لَهُ أَنْ يَرُدَّ عَلَيْهِ جَنَاحَهُ فَقَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ص لِفُطْرُسَ أَ تَفْعَلُ قَالَ نَعَمْ فَعَرَضَ عَلَيْهِ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ص وَلَايَةَ أَمِيرِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ ع فَقَبِلَهَا فَقَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ص شَأْنَكَ بِالْمَهْدِ فَتَمَسَّحْ بِهِ وَ تَمَرَّغْ فِيهِ قَالَ فَمَضَى فُطْرُسُ إِلَى مَهْدِ الْحُسَيْنِ بْنِ عَلِيٍّ ع وَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ص يَدْعُو لَهُ قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ص فَنَظَرْتُ إِلَى رِيشِهِ وَ إِنَّهُ لَيَطْلُعُ وَ يَجْرِي مِنْهُ الدَّمُ وَ يَطُولُ حَتَّى لَحِقَ بِجَنَاحِهِ الْآخَرِ وَ عُرِجَ مَعَ جَبْرَئِيلَ إِلَى السَّمَاءِ وَ صَارَ إِلَى مَوْضِعِهِ‏.


7. It is narrated to us by Ahmad Bin Musa, from Muhammad Bin Ahmad, a slave of Harb, from Abu Ja’far Al Hammamy Al Kufi, from Al Azhar Al Biteekhy, ‘From Abu Abdullah (a.s.) having said: ‘Allah (azwj) Presented the Wilayah of Amir Al-Momineen (a.s.). The Angels accepted it and an Angel called Futrus refused it, so Allah (azwj) Broke his wings. When Al-Husayn (a.s.) Bin Ali (a.s.) was born, Allah (azwj) Sent Jibraeel (as) among seventy thousand Angels to Muhammad (saww) to congratulate him (saww) of his (a.s.) birth. (On his way) he (as) passed by Futrus. Futrus said to him (as), ‘O Jibraeel (as)! Where are you (as) going?’ He (as) said: ‘Allah (azwj) has Sent me (as) to Muhammad (saww) to congratulate them (him (saww)) of the birth of a son (a.s.) during this night’. Futrus said to him (as), ‘Carry me with you (as) and ask Muhammad (saww) to supplicate for me’. Jibraeel (as) said to him: ‘Ride on my wing’. He rode his (as) wing and came to Muhammad (saww). He (as) entered to see him (saww) and congratulated him (saww) and said to him (saww): ‘O Rasool-Allah (saww)! Futrus, there is brotherhood between me (as) and him, and he asked me (as) to ask you (saww) to supplicate to Allah (azwj) for him, for Him (azwj) to return his wings to him’. Rasool-Allah (saww) said to Futrus: ‘Will you do it?’ He said, ‘Yes’. Rasool-Allah (saww) presented to him the Wilayah of Amir Al-Momineen (a.s.), and he accepted it. Rasool-Allah (saww) said: ‘Your concern is with the cradle (of Al-Husayn (a.s.)). Wipe with it and wallow in it’. He (a.s.) said: ‘Futrus went to the cradle of Al-Husayn (a.s.) Bin Ali (a.s.) and Rasool-Allah (saww) supplicated for him’. He (a.s.) said: ‘Rasool-Allah (saww) said: ‘I (saww) looked at his feather and it emerged and the blood flowed from it, and it prolonged until it adhered to his other wing, and he ascended along with Jibraeel (as) to the sky and came to his place’’.




حَدَّثَنَا أَحْمَدُ بْنُ عُمَرَ عَنْ عُمَرَ بْنِ عَبْدِ الْعَزِيزِ عَنِ الْخَيْبَرِيِّ عَنِ ابْنِ ظَبْيَانَ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع قَالَ سَمِعْنَا يَقُولُ‏ مَا حَاوَرَتْ‏ مَلَائِكَةُ اللَّهِ تَبَارَكَ وَ تَعَالَى فِي دُنُوِّهَا مِنْهُ إِلَّا بِالَّذِي أَنْتُمْ عَلَيْهِ وَ إِنَّ الْمَلَائِكَةَ لَيَصِفُونَ مَا تَصِفُونَ وَ يَطْلُبُونَ مَا تَطْلُبُونَ وَ إِنَّ مِنَ الْمَلَائِكَةِ مَلَائِكَةً يَقُولُونَ إِنَّ قَوْلَنَا فِي آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ الَّذِي جَعَلْتَهُمْ عَلَيْهِ‏.


8. It is narrated to us by Ahmad Bin Umar, from Umar Bin Abdul Aziz, from Al Khaybari, from Ibn Zabyan, ‘From Abu Abdullah (a.s.), he (the narrator) said, ‘We heard him (a.s.) saying: ‘The Angels of Allah (azwj) Blessed and Exalted did not attain the Proximity from Him (azwj) except by that which you (Shias) are upon, and that the Angels are describing what you are describing, and are seeking what you are seeking, and that from the Angels there are Angels saying, ‘Our word regarding the Progeny (a.s.) of Muhammad (saww) is that which you (Shias) are made to be upon’’.




حَدَّثَنَا عَلِيُّ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنِ الْقَاسِمِ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ سُلَيْمَانَ بْنِ دَاوُدَ عَنْ حَمَّادِ بْنِ عِيسَى‏ قَالَ: سَأَلَ رَجُلٌ أَبَا عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع فَقَالَ الْمَلَائِكَةُ أَكْثَرُ أَوْ بَنُو آدَمَ فَقَالَ وَ الَّذِي نَفْسِي بِيَدِهِ لَمَلَائِكَةُ اللَّهِ فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ أَكْثَرُ مِنْ عَدَدِ التُّرَابِ وَ مَا فِي السَّمَاءِ مَوْضِعُ قَدَمٍ إِلَّا وَ فِيهِ مَلَكٌ يُقَدِّسُ لَهُ‏ وَ يُسَبِّحُ وَ لَا فِي الْأَرْضِ شَجَرَةٌ وَ لَا مِثْلُ غَرْزَةٍ إِلَّا وَ فِيهَا مَلَكٌ مُوَكَّلٌ بِهَا يَأْتِي اللَّهَ كُلَّ يَوْمٍ بِعَمَلِهَا وَ اللَّهُ أَعْلَمُ بِهَا وَ مَا مِنْهُمْ أَحَدٌ إِلَّا وَ يَتَقَرَّبُ إِلَى اللَّهِ فِي كُلِّ يَوْمٍ بِوَلَايَتِنَا أَهْلَ الْبَيْتِ وَ يَسْتَغْفِرُ لِمُحَبِّينَا وَ يَلْعَنُ أَعْدَاءَنَا وَ يَسْأَلُ اللَّهَ أَنْ يُرْسِلَ عَلَيْهِمْ‏ مِنَ الْعَذَابِ إِرْسَالًا.


9. It is narrated to us by Ali Bin Muhammad, from Al Qasim Bin Muhammad, from Suleyman Bin Dawood, from Hammad Bin Isa who said, ‘A man asked Abu Abdullah (a.s.) saying, ‘Are the Angels more numerous or the children of Adam (as)?’ He (a.s.) said: ‘By the One (azwj) in Whose Hand is my (a.s.) soul! The Angels of Allah (azwj) in the skies are more numerous than the number of (grains of) dust, and there is no place for a foot in the sky except and in it is an Angel extolling Holiness to Him (azwj), and Glorifying. And in the earth, there is neither any tree, nor like a stick, except and in it is an Angel allocated with it, coming to Allah (azwj) every day with its knowledge, and Allah (azwj) is more Knowing with it, and there is no one from them except and he draws nearer to Allah (azwj) during every day by our (a.s.) Wilayah, People (a.s.) of the Household, and he seeks Forgiveness for ones who love us (a.s.), and curses our (a.s.) enemies, and asks Allah (azwj) to Send upon them the Punishments with a (constant) Sending’’.
