Back to book

أَحْمَدُ بْنُ مُوسَى عَنْ جَعْفَرِ بْنِ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ مَالِكٍ الْكُوفِيِّ عَنْ يُوسُفَ الْأَبْزَارِيِّ عَنِ الْمُفَضَّلِ قَالَ: قَالَ لِي أَبُو عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع ذَاتَ يَوْمٍ وَ كَانَ لَا يُكَنِّينِي قَبْلَ ذَلِكَ يَا أَبَا عَبْدِ اللَّهِ فَقُلْتُ لَبَّيْكَ جُعِلْتُ فِدَاكَ قَالَ إِنَّ لَنَا فِي كُلِّ لَيْلَةِ جُمُعَةٍ سُرُوراً قُلْتُ زَادَكَ اللَّهُ وَ مَا ذَاكَ قَالَ إِنَّهُ إِذَا كَانَ لَيْلَةُ الْجُمُعَةِ وَافَى رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ص الْعَرْشَ وَ وَافَى الْأَئِمَّةُ مَعَهُ وَ وَافَيْنَا مَعَهُمْ فَلَا تُرَدُّ أَرْوَاحُنَا إِلَى أَبْدَانِنَا إِلَّا بِعِلْمٍ مُسْتَفَادٍ وَ لَوْ لَا ذَلِكَ لَنَفِدَ مَا عِنْدَنَا.


1. Ahmad Bin Musa, from Ja’far Bin Muhammad Bin Malik Al Kufy, from Yusuf Al Abzary, from Al Mufazzal who said, ‘Abu Abdullah (a.s.) said to me one day, and he (a.s.) had not teknonymed me before that: ‘O Abu Abdullah!’ I said, ‘May I be sacrificed for you (a.s.)!’ He (a.s.) said: ‘For us (a.s.), during every night of Friday, there is cheerfulness’. I said, ‘May Allah Increase for you (a.s.)! And what is that?’ He (a.s.) said: ‘Whenever it is the night of Friday, Rasool-Allah (saww) comes to the Throne and the (deceased) Imams (a.s.) arrive with him (saww), and we (a.s.) (living Imams (a.s.)) arrive with them (a.s.). Our (a.s.) souls do not return to our (a.s.) bodies except with beneficial knowledge, and had it not been for that, it would deplete what is with us (a.s.)’’.

2. It is narrated to us by Al Husayn Bin Muhammad, from Ahmad Bin Muhammad, from Al Hassan Bin Al Abbas Bin Jareesh, ‘For us (a.s.) during the night of Friday there is a splendour from the splendours’. I said, ‘May I be sacrificed for you (a.s.)! Which splendour?’ He (a.s.) said: ‘It is Permitted for the Angels and the Prophets (as) and the deceased successors (as), and the souls of the (living) successors (a.s.), and the successor (a.s.) who is between your midst. It ascends to the sky and they (a.s.) are performing Tawaaf of the Throne of their (a.s.) Lord , seven circuits, and they (a.s.) are saying: ‘Glorious, Holy, Lord of the Angels and the Spirit!’, until when they (a.s.) are free (from it), they (a.s.) pray two Cycles Salat behind every Column, then they (a.s.) disperse. The Angels disperse with whatever Allah Places in them of the intense striving in glorification of what they saw, and Increases in their striving and their fear, similar to it. And the Prophets (as) and the successors (as) and the souls of the living disperse with their (as) wonders intensified, and are joyful with intense happiness for themselves, and the successor (a.s.) and the successors (a.s.) having been inspired with inspirations from the knowledge, like knowledge of the immense proportions. There isn’t anything suppressed of more intense joy from them (a.s.). By Allah ! For this, I (a.s.) am mightier as a fortress in the Presence of Allah than such and such are with you’. He (a.s.) said: ‘O Mahbour! By Allah ! Allah does not Inspire the acknowledgment with what you see except the righteous’. I said, ‘By Allah ! I do not have a lot of righteousness with me’. He (a.s.) said: ‘Do not lie upon Allah , for Allah has (already) Named you as righteous Saying: so they are those upon whom Allah has Bestowed Favours from the Prophets and the Truthful and the Martyrs and the Righteous; [4:69] – meaning those who believe in us (a.s.) and in Amir Al-Momineen (a.s.), and His Angels, and His Prophets (as), and the entirety of His Divine Authorities upon him, and upon Muhammad (saww) and his (saww) Progeny, the goodly, the pure, the Chosen, the righteous, be the greetings’’.




حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ أَحْمَدَ عَنْ عَلِيِّ بْنِ سُلَيْمَانَ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ جُمْهُورٍ عَمَّنْ رَفَعَهُ إِلَى أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع قَالَ: قَالَ إِنَّ لَنَا فِي كُلِّ لَيْلَةِ جُمُعَةٍ وَفْدَةً إِلَى رَبِّنَا فَلَا نَنْزِلُ إِلَّا بِعِلْمٍ مُسْتَطْرَفٍ‏.


3. It is narrated us by Muhammad Bin Ahmad, from Ali Bin Suleyman, from Muhammad Bin Jamhour, from the one who raised it to, ‘Abu Abdullah (a.s.) having said: ‘For us (a.s.), during every Friday night, a delegation to our (a.s.) Lord , so we (a.s.) do not descend except with exquisite knowledge’’




حَدَّثَنَا الْحَسَنُ بْنُ عَلِيِّ بْنِ مُعَاوِيَةَ عَنْ مُوسَى بْنِ سَعْدَانَ عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ أَبِي أَيُّوبَ عَنْ شَرِيكِ بْنِ مُلَيْحٍ وَ حَدَّثَنِي الْخَضِرُ بْنُ عِيسَى عَنِ الْكَاهِلِيِّ عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ أَبِي أَيُّوبَ عَنْ شَرِيكِ بْنِ مُلَيْحٍ عَنْ أَبِي يَحْيَى الصَّنْعَانِيِّ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع قَالَ: قَالَ يَا أَبَا يَحْيَى لَنَا فِي لَيَالِي الْجُمُعَةِ لَشَأْنٌ مِنَ الشَّأْنِ قَالَ فَقُلْتُ لَهُ جُعِلْتُ فِدَاكَ وَ مَا ذَلِكَ الشَّأْنُ قَالَ يُؤْذَنُ لِأَرْوَاحِ الْأَنْبِيَاءِ الْمَوْتَى وَ أَرْوَاحِ الْأَوْصِيَاءِ الْمَوْتَى وَ رُوحِ الْوَصِيِّ الَّذِي بَيْنَ ظَهْرَانَيْكُمْ يُعْرَجُ بِهَا إِلَى السَّمَاءِ حَتَّى تُوَافِيَ عَرْشَ رَبِّهَا فَتَطُوفُ بِهَا أُسْبُوعاً وَ تُصَلِّي عِنْدَ كُلِّ قَائِمَةٍ مِنْ قَوَائِمِ الْعَرْشِ رَكْعَتَيْنِ ثُمَّ تُرَدُّ إِلَى الْأَبْدَانِ الَّتِي كَانَتْ فِيهَا فَتُصْبِحُ الْأَنْبِيَاءُ وَ الْأَوْصِيَاءُ قَدْ مُلِئُوا وَ أُعْطُوا سُرُوراً وَ يُصْبِحُ الْوَصِيُّ الَّذِي بَيْنَ ظَهْرَانَيْكُمْ فَقَدْ زِيدَ فِي‏ عِلْمِهِ مِثْلُ جَمِّ الْغَفِيرِ.


4. It is narrated to us by Al Hassan Bin Ali Bin Muawiya, from Musa Bin Sa’dan, from Abdullah Bin Abu Ayoub, from Shareek Bin Mulayh, and it is narrated to me by Al Khizr Bin Isa, from Al Kahily, from Abdullah Bin Abu Ayoub, from Shareek Bin Mulayh, from Abu Yahya Al San’any who said, ‘Abu Abdullah (a.s.) said: ‘O Abu Yahya! For us (a.s.), during the nights of Fridays, there is a splendour from the splendours’. He (the narrator) said, ‘I said to him (a.s.), ‘May I be sacrificed for you (a.s.)! And what is that splendour?’ He (a.s.) said: ‘Permission is Given to the souls of the deceased Prophets (as), and souls of the deceased successors (as), and soul of the successor (a.s.) who is between your midst. They (as) are ascended to the sky until they arrive at the Throne of their (as) Lord , and they (as) perform Tawaaf of it, seven circuits, and pray Salat at every Pillar from the Pillars of the Throne, two Cycles. Then these return to the bodies in which they (as) were. So, the Prophets (as) and the successor (as) become filled up and are Given cheerfulness, and the successor (a.s.), the one (a.s.) who is in your midst becomes increased in his (a.s.) knowledge like the immense proportions’’.




حَدَّثَنَا سَلَمَةُ عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنِ الْحُسَيْنِ الْمِنْقَرِيِّ عَنْ يُونُسَ بْنِ أَبِي الْفَضْلِ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع قَالَ: مَا مِنْ لَيْلَةِ جُمُعَةٍ إِلَّا وَ لِأَوْلِيَاءِ اللَّهِ فِيهَا سُرُورٌ قُلْتُ كَيْفَ ذَاكَ جُعِلْتُ فِدَاكَ قَالَ إِذَا كَانَتْ لَيْلَةُ الْجُمُعَةِ وَافَى رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ص الْعَرْشَ وَ وَافَيْتُ مَعَهُ فَمَا أَرْجِعُ إِلَّا بِعِلْمٍ مُسْتَفَادٍ وَ لَوْ لَا ذَلِكَ لَنَفِدَ مَا عِنْدَنَا.


5. It is narrated to us by Salama, from Abdullah Bin Muhammad, from Al Husayn Al Minqary, from Yunus Bin Abu Al Fazl, ‘From Abu Abdullah (a.s.) having said: ‘There is none from a night of Friday (Thursday evening), except and the friends of Allah are in joy during it’. I said, ‘How is that so? May I be sacrificed for you (a.s.)’. He (a.s.) said: ‘Whenever it is the night of Friday (Thursday evening), Rasool-Allah (saww) arrives to the Throne, and I (a.s.) arrive with him (saww). So, I (a.s.) do not return except with beneficial knowledge, and had it not been for that, whatever is with us (a.s.) would deplete’’.




حَدَّثَنَا أَحْمَدُ بْنُ إِسْحَاقَ عَنِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ عَبَّاسِ بْنِ حَرِيشٍ عَنْ أَبِي جَعْفَرٍ ع قَالَ قَالَ أَبُو عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع‏ وَ اللَّهِ إِنَّ أَرْوَاحَنَا وَ أَرْوَاحَ النَّبِيِّينَ لَتُوَافي الْعَرْشَ لَيْلَةَ كُلِّ جُمُعَةٍ فَمَا تُرَدُّ فِي أَبْدَانِنَا إِلَّا بِجَمِّ الْغَفِيرِ مِنَ الْعِلْمِ.


6. It is narrated to us by Ahmad Bin Is’haq, from Al Hassan Bin Abbas Bin Hareysh, ‘From Abu Ja’far (a.s.) having said: ‘Abu Abdullah (a.s.) said: ‘By Allah ! Our (a.s.) souls and souls of the Prophets (as) arrive at the Throne on the night of every Friday, and we (a.s.) do not return to our (a.s.) bodies except with immense proportions from the knowledge’’.




حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ إِسْحَاقَ بْنِ سَعْدٍ عَنِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ عَبَّاسِ بْنِ جَرِيشٍ عَنْ أَبِي جَعْفَرٍ ع قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ص‏ إِنَّ أَرْوَاحَنَا وَ أَرْوَاحَ النَّبِيِّينَ تُوَافِي الْعَرْشَ كُلَّ لَيْلَةِ جُمُعَةٍ فَتُصْبِحُ الْأَوْصِيَاءُ وَ قَدْ زِيدَ فِي عِلْمِهِمْ مِثْلُ جَمِّ الْغَفِيرِ مِنَ الْعِلْمِ‏.


7. It is narrated to us by Muhammad Bin Is’haq Bin Sa’ad, from Al Hassan Bin Abbas Bin Jareesh, ‘From Abu Ja’far (a.s.) having said: ‘Rasool-Allah (saww) said: ‘Our (a.s.) souls and souls of the Prophets (as) arrive at the Throne every night of Friday, so the successors (a.s.) become such and they (a.s.) have been increased in their (a.s.) knowledge like of immense proportions from the knowledge’’.
