حَدَّثَنَا أَحْمَدُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنِ الْبَرْقِيِّ عَنِ النَّضْرِ عَنْ يَحْيَى الْحَلَبِيِّ عَنْ عَبْدِ الْحَمِيدِ الطَّائِيِّ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ مُسْلِمٍ قَالَ قَالَ أَبُو جَعْفَرٍ ع‏ إِنَّ الْعِلْمَ يُتَوَارَثُ وَ لَا يَمُوتُ عَالِمٌ إِلَّا تَرَكَ مَنْ يَعْلَمُ مِثْلَ عِلْمِهِ أَوْ مَا شَاءَ اللَّهُ‏.


1. It is narrated to us by Ahmad Bin Muhammad, from Al Barqy, from Al Nazar, from Yahya Al Halby, from Abdul Hameed Al Taie, from Muhammad Bin Muslim who said, ‘Abu Ja’far (a.s.) said: ‘The knowledge is inherited, and no scholar (a.s.) passes away except he (a.s.) leaves behind one (a.s.) who knows similar to his (a.s.) knowledge, or whatever Allah so Desires’’.




حَدَّثَنَا أَحْمَدُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنِ الْأَهْوَازِيِّ عَنِ النَّضْرِ عَنْ يَحْيَى الْحَلَبِيِّ عَنْ بُرَيْدٍ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ مُسْلِمٍ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع قَالَ: إِنَّ عَلِيّاً ع كَانَ عَالِماً وَ إِنَّ الْعِلْمَ يُتَوَارَثُ وَ لَنْ يَهْلِكَ عَالِمٌ إِلَّا بَقِيَ مِنْ بَعْدِهِ مَنْ يَعْلَمُ مِثْلَ عِلْمِهِ أَوْ مَا شَاءَ اللَّهُ‏.


2. It is narrated to us by Ahmad Bin Muhammad, from Al Ahwazy, from Al Nazar, from Yahya Al Halby, from Bureyd, from Muhammad Bin Muslim, ‘From Abu Abdullah (a.s.) having said: ‘Ali (a.s.) was a scholar (a.s.), and that the knowledge is inherited, and a scholar (a.s.) will never be destroyed (pass away) except there would remain from after him (a.s.), one (a.s.) who knows similar to his (a.s.) knowledge, or whatever Allah so Desires’’.




عَبْدُ اللَّهِ بْنُ مُوسَى عَنِ الْخَشَّابِ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ سَالِمٍ عَنِ الْعَلَاءِ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ مُسْلِمٍ عَنْ أَبِي جَعْفَرٍ ع قَالَ: كَانَ عَلِيٌّ ع عَالِمَ هَذِهِ الْأُمَّةِ وَ الْعِلْمُ يُتَوَارَثُ وَ لَيْسَ يَهْلِكُ هَالِكٌ مِنْهُمْ حَتَّى يُؤْتَى مِنْ أَهْلِهِ مَنْ يَعْلَمُ مِثْلَ عِلْمِهِ‏.


3. It is narrated to us by Abdullah Bin Musa, from Al Khashab, from Muhammad Bin Salim, from Al A’ala, from Muhammad Bin Muslim, ‘From Abu Ja’far (a.s.) having said: ‘Ali (a.s.) was a scholar of this community, and the knowledge is inherited, and a dying one does not die from them (a.s.) until he (a.s.) gives one (a.s.) from his (a.s.) family, similar to his (a.s.) knowledge’’.




حَدَّثَنَا ابْنُ مَعْرُوفٍ عَنْ حَمَّادِ بْنِ عِيسَى عَنْ عُمَرَ بْنِ يَزِيدَ قَالَ قَالَ أَبُو جَعْفَرٍ ع‏ إِنَّ عَلِيّاً ع كَانَ عَالِمَ هَذِهِ الْأُمَّةِ وَ الْعِلْمُ يُتَوَارَثُ وَ لَا يَهْلِكُ أَحَدٌ مِنَّا إِلَّا تَرَكَ مِنْ أَهْلِهِ مَنْ يَعْلَمُ مِثْلَ عِلْمِهِ أَوْ مَا شَاءَ اللَّهُ‏.


4. (The book) ‘Basaair Al Darajaat’ – Ibn Marouf, from Hammad Bin Isa, from Umar Bin Yazeed who said, ‘Abu Ja’far (a.s.) said: ‘Ali (a.s.) was a scholar of this community, and the knowledge is inherited, and no one from us (a.s.) is destroyed (passes away) except he (a.s.) leaves behind one (a.s.) from his (a.s.) family who knows similar to his (a.s.) knowledge, or whatever Allah so Desires’’.
