حَدَّثَنَا ابْنُ مَعْرُوفٍ عَنْ حَمَّادٍ عَنْ حَرِيزٍ عَنْ أَبِي بَصِيرٍ عَنْ أَبِي جَعْفَرٍ ع قَالَ: سُئِلَ عَلِيٌّ ع عَنْ عِلْمِ النَّبِيِّ ص فَقَالَ عِلْمُ النَّبِيِّ عِلْمُ جَمِيعِ النَّبِيِّينَ وَ عِلْمُ مَا كَانَ وَ عِلْمُ مَا هُوَ كَائِنٌ إِلَى قِيَامِ السَّاعَةِ ثُمَّ قَالَ وَ الَّذِي نَفْسِي بِيَدِهِ إِنِّي لَأَعْلَمُ عِلْمَ النَّبِيِّ ص وَ عِلْمَ مَا كَانَ وَ عِلْمَ مَا هُوَ كَائِنٌ فِيمَا بَيْنِي وَ بَيْنَ قِيَامِ السَّاعَةِ.


1. It is narrated to us by Ibn Marouf, from Hammad, from Hareez, from Abu Baseer, ‘From Abu Ja’far (a.s.) having said: ‘Ali (a.s.) was asked about the knowledge of the Prophet (saww). He (a.s.) said: ‘Knowledge of the Prophet (saww) is the knowledge of the entirety of the Prophets (as) and knowledge of whatever has transpired, and knowledge of what will be happening up to the Establishment of the Hour’. Then he (a.s.) said: ‘By the One in Whose Hand is my (a.s.) soul! I (a.s.) am the most knowing with the knowledge of the Prophet (saww), and knowledge of what has happened, and knowledge of what will be happening in what is between me (a.s.) and Establishment of the Hour’’.




حَدَّثَنَا أَحْمَدُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنِ ابْنِ أَبِي نَجْرَانَ عَنْ يُونُسَ بْنِ يَعْقُوبَ عَنِ الْحَارِثِ بْنِ‏ الْمُغِيرَةِ عَنْ عَبْدِ الْأَعْلَى وَ عُبَيْدَةَ بْنِ بَشِيرٍ قَالَ قَالَ أَبُو عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع ابْتِدَاءً مِنْهُ‏ وَ اللَّهِ إِنِّي لَأَعْلَمُ مَا فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَ مَا فِي الْأَرْضِ وَ مَا فِي الْجَنَّةِ وَ مَا فِي النَّارِ وَ مَا كَانَ وَ مَا يَكُونُ إِلَى أَنْ تَقُومَ السَّاعَةُ ثُمَّ قَالَ أَعْلَمُهُ مِنْ كِتَابِ اللَّهِ أَنْظُرُ إِلَيْهِ هَكَذَا ثُمَّ بَسَطَ كَفَّيْهِ ثُمَّ قَالَ إِنَّ اللَّهَ يَقُولُ وَ أَنْزَلْنَا إِلَيْكَ الْكِتَابَ فِيهِ تِبْيَانُ كُلِّ شَيْ‏ءٍ.


2. It is narrated to us by Ahmad Bin Muhammad, from Ibn Abu Najran, from Yunus Bin Yaqoub, from Al Haris Bin Al Mugheira, from Abdul A’ala and Ubeyda Bin Bashir who said, ‘Abu Abdullah (a.s.) said initiating from himself (a.s.): ‘By Allah ! I (a.s.) am the most knowing with what is in the skies, and what is in the earth, and what is in the Paradise, and what is in the Fire, and what has happened, and what will be happening up to the Establishment of the Hour’. Then he (a.s.) said: ‘I (a.s.) know it from the Book of Allah . I (a.s.) look into it like this’, then he (a.s.) extended his (a.s.) palm, then said: ‘Allah is Saying: And We Revealed the Book unto you as a clarification of all things, [16:89]’’.




حَدَّثَنَا عَلِيُّ بْنُ إِسْمَاعِيلَ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ عَمْرٍو الزَّيَّاتِ عَنْ يُونُسَ عَنْ عَبْدِ الْأَعْلَى‏ بْنِ أَعْيَنَ قَالَ سَمِعْتُ أَبَا عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع يَقُولُ‏ إِنِّي لَأَعْلَمُ مَا فِي السَّمَاءِ وَ أَعْلَمُ مَا فِي الْأَرْضِ وَ أَعْلَمُ مَا فِي الْجَنَّةِ وَ أَعْلَمُ مَا فِي النَّارِ وَ أَعْلَمُ مَا كَانَ وَ أَعْلَمُ مَا يَكُونُ عَلِمْتُ ذَلِكَ مِنْ كِتَابِ اللَّهِ إِنَّ اللَّهَ تَعَالَى يَقُولُ فِيهِ تِبْيَانُ كُلِّ شَيْ‏ءٍ.


3. It is narrated to us by Ali Bin Ismail, from Muhammad Bin Amro Al Zayyat, from Yunus, from Abdul A’ala Bin Ayn who said, ‘I heard Abu Abdullah (a.s.) saying: ‘I (a.s.) know what is in the sky, and I (a.s.) know what is in the earth, and I (a.s.) know what is in the Paradise, and I (a.s.) know what is in the Fire, and I (a.s.) know of what has happened, and I (a.s.) know what will be happening. I (a.s.) know that from the Book of Allah . Surely, Allah the Exalted is Saying in it is a clarification of all things, [16:89]’’.




حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ عَبْدِ الْجَبَّارِ عَنْ مَنْصُورِ بْنِ يُونُسَ عَنْ حَمَّادٍ اللَّحَّامِ قَالَ قَالَ أَبُو عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع‏ نَحْنُ وَ اللَّهِ نَعْلَمُ مَا فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَ مَا فِي الْأَرْضِ وَ مَا فِي الْجَنَّةِ وَ مَا فِي النَّارِ وَ مَا بَيْنَ ذَلِكَ قَالَ فنبهت‏ [فَبُهِتُ‏] أَنْظُرُ إِلَيْهِ قَالَ فَقَالَ يَا حَمَّادُ إِنَّ ذَلِكَ مِنْ كِتَابِ اللَّهِ إِنَّ ذَلِكَ فِي كِتَابِ اللَّهِ‏ إِنَّ ذَلِكَ فِي كِتَابِ اللَّهِ‏ ثُمَّ تَلَا هَذِهِ الْآيَةَ وَ يَوْمَ نَبْعَثُ فِي كُلِّ أُمَّةٍ شَهِيداً عَلَيْهِمْ مِنْ أَنْفُسِهِمْ وَ جِئْنا بِكَ شَهِيداً عَلى‏ هؤُلاءِ وَ نَزَّلْنا عَلَيْكَ الْكِتابَ تِبْياناً لِكُلِّ شَيْ‏ءٍ وَ هُدىً وَ رَحْمَةً وَ بُشْرى‏ لِلْمُسْلِمِينَ‏ إِنَّهُ مِنْ كِتَابِ اللَّهِ فِيهِ تِبْيَانُ كُلِّ شَيْ‏ءٍ فِيهِ تِبْيَانُ كُلِّ شَيْ‏ءٍ.


4. It is narrated to us by Muhammad Bin Abdul Jabbar, from Mansour Bin Yunus, from Hammad Al Laham who said, ‘Abu Abdullah (a.s.) said: ‘By Allah ! We (a.s.) know what is in the skies and what is in the earth, and what is in the Paradise and what is in the Fire, and whatever is between that’. He (the narrator) said, ‘I was amazed. I looked (stared) at him (a.s.), so he (a.s.) said: ‘O Hammad! That is from the Book of Allah , that is in the Book of Allah , that is in the Book of Allah !’ Then he (a.s.) recited this Verse: And on the Day We will Send into every community a witness upon them from themselves, and We shall Come with you as a witness upon these (witnesses). And We Revealed the Book unto you as a clarification of all things, and Guidance and Mercy and glad tidings for the submitters [16:89]. It is from the Book of Allah wherein is a clarification of all things. In it is clarification of all things’’.




حَدَّثَنَا أَحْمَدُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ سِنَانٍ عَنْ يُونُسَ عَنِ الْحَارِثِ بْنِ الْمُغِيرَةِ وَ عِدَّةٍ مِنْ أَصْحَابِنَا فِيهِمْ عَبْدُ الْأَعْلَى وَ عُبَيْدَةُ بْنُ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ بِشْرٍ الْخَثْعَمِيُّ وَ عَبْدُ اللَّهِ بْنُ بَشِيرٍ سَمِعُوا أَبَا عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع يَقُولُ‏ إِنِّي لَأَعْلَمُ مَا فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَ أَعْلَمُ مَا فِي الْأَرَضِينَ وَ أَعْلَمُ مَا فِي الْجَنَّةِ وَ أَعْلَمُ مَا فِي النَّارِ وَ أَعْلَمُ مَا كَانَ وَ مَا يَكُونُ ثُمَّ مَكَثَ هُنَيْئَةً فَرَأَى أَنَّ ذَلِكَ كَبُرَ عَلَى مَنْ سَمِعَهُ فَقَالَ عَلِمْتُ مِنْ كِتَابِ اللَّهِ أَنَّ اللَّهَ يَقُولُ فِيهِ تِبْيَانُ كُلِّ شَيْ‏ءٍ.


5. It is narrated to us by Ahmad Bin Muhammad, from Muhammad Bin Sinan, from Yunus, from Al Haris Bin Al Mugheira, and a number of our companions, among them being Abdul A’ala and Ubeyda Bin Abdullah Bin Bishr Al Khas’amy, and Abdullah Bin Bashir, ‘They heard him (a.s.) saying: ‘I (a.s.) am the most knowing of what is in the skies, and the most knowing of what is in the earth(s), and the most knowing of what is in the Paradise, and the most knowing of what is in the Fire, and the most knowing of what has happened and what will be happening’. Then he (a.s.) waited for a while. He (a.s.) saw that, that was grievous upon the ones who heard him (a.s.), so he (a.s.) said: ‘I (a.s.) learnt from the Book of Allah . Allah is Saying in it is a clarification of all things, [16:89]’’.




حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ اللَّهِ بْنُ عَامِرٍ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ سِنَانٍ عَنْ يُونُسَ بْنِ يَعْقُوبَ عَنِ الْحَرْثِ بْنِ الْمُغِيرَةِ وَ عُبَيْدَةَ بْنِ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ بِشْرٍ الْخَثْعَمِيِّ سَمِعُوا أَبَا عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع يَقُولُ‏ إِنِّي لَأَعْلَمُ مَا فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ أَوْ مَا فِي الْأَرَضِينَ وَ أَعْلَمُ مَا فِي الْجَنَّةِ وَ أَعْلَمُ مَا فِي النَّارِ وَ أَعْلَمُ مَا كَانَ وَ مَا يَكُونُ ثُمَّ مَكَثَ هُنَيْئَةً فَرَأَى أَنَّ ذَلِكَ كَبُرَ عَلَى مَنْ سَمِعَهُ فَقَالَ لَهُ عَلِمْتُ ذَلِكَ مِنْ كِتَابِ اللَّهِ إِنَّ اللَّهَ يَقُولُ فِيهِ تِبْيَانُ كُلِّ شَيْ‏ءٍ.

Then he (a.s.) waited for a while, and he (a.s.) saw that, that was grievous upon the ones who heard him (a.s.), so he (a.s.) said to him: ‘I (a.s.) know that from the Book of Allah .
