حَدَّثَنَا الْحَسَنُ بْنُ عَلِيِّ بْنِ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ عَنِ ابْنِ فَضَّالٍ‏ عَنْ دَاوُدَ بْنِ أَبِي يَزِيدَ عَنْ بَعْضِ أَصْحَابِنَا عَنْ عُمَرَ بْنِ حَنْظَلَةَ قَالَ: قُلْتُ لِأَبِي جَعْفَرٍ ع إِنِّي أَظُنُّ أَنَّ لِي عِنْدَكَ مَنْزَلَةً قَالَ أَجَلْ قَالَ قُلْتُ فَإِنَّ لِي إِلَيْكَ حَاجَةً قَالَ وَ مَا هِيَ قُلْتُ تُعَلِّمُنِي الِاسْمَ الْأَعْظَمَ قَالَ وَ تُطِيقُهُ قُلْتُ نَعَمْ قَالَ فَادْخُلِ الْبَيْتَ قَالَ فَدَخَلَ الْبَيْتَ فَوَضَعَ أَبُو جَعْفَرٍ ع يَدَهُ عَلَى الْأَرْضِ فَأَظْلَمَ الْبَيْتُ فَأُرْعِدَتْ فَرَائِصُ عُمَرَ فَقَالَ مَا تَقُولُ أُعَلِّمُكَ فَقَالَ لَا قَالَ فَرَفَعَ يَدَهُ فَرَجَعَ الْبَيْتُ كَمَا كَانَ‏.


1. It is narrated to us by Al Hassan Bin Ali Bin Abdullah, from Ibn Fazzal, from Dawood Bin Abu Yazeed, from one of our companions, from Umar Bin Hanzala who said, ‘I said to Abu Ja’far (a.s.), ‘I think that there is a status for me in your (a.s.) presence’. He (a.s.) said: ‘Yes’. I said, ‘There is a need for me to you (a.s.)’. He (a.s.) said: ‘And what is it’. I said, ‘Teach me the Magnificent Name’. He (a.s.) said: ‘And you cannot tolerate it’. I said, ‘Yes (I will)’. He (a.s.) said: ‘Enter the room’. He (a.s.) (also) entered the room, and Abu Ja’far (a.s.) placed his (a.s.) hand upon the ground, and the room darkened, and the limbs of Umar trembled. He (a.s.) said: ‘What are you saying, shall I (a.s.) teach you?’ He said, ‘No’. He (a.s.) raised his (a.s.) hand, and the room returned to what is was’’.




حَدَّثَنَا أَحْمَدُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ عَلِيِّ بْنِ الْحَكَمِ عَنْ شُعَيْبٍ الْعَقَرْقُوفِيِّ عَنْ أَبِي بَصِيرٍ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع قَالَ: كَانَ سُلَيْمَانُ عِنْدَهُ اسْمُ اللَّهِ الْأَكْبَرُ الَّذِي إِذَا سَأَلَهُ‏ بِهِ أَعْطَى وَ إِذَا دَعَا بِهِ أَجَابَ وَ لَوْ كَانَ الْيَوْمَ لَاحْتَاجَ إِلَيْنَا.


2. It is narrated to us by Ahmad Bin Muhammad, from Ali Bin Al Hakam, from Shuayn al Aqarquqy, from Abu Baseer, ‘From Abu Abdullah (a.s.) having said: ‘Suleyman (as), with him (as) was the Greatest Name of Allah which, whenever he (as) asked by it, was Granted, and whenever he (as) supplicated by it, was Answered, and if he (as) had existed today, he (as) would have been needy to us (a.s.)’’.




حَدَّثَنَا الْحُسَيْنُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ عَامِرٍ عَنْ مُعَلَّى بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ عَنْ عَلِيِّ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ النَّوْفَلِيِّ عَنْ أَبِي الْحَسَنِ الْعَسْكَرِيِّ ع قَالَ سَمِعْتُهُ يَقُولُ‏ اسْمُ اللَّهِ الْأَعْظَمُ ثَلَاثَةٌ وَ سَبْعُونَ حَرْفاً وَ إِنَّمَا كَانَ عِنْدَ آصَفَ مِنْهُ حَرْفٌ وَاحِدٌ فَتَكَلَّمَ فَانْخَرَقَتْ لَهُ الْأَرْضُ فِيمَا بَيْنَهُ وَ بَيْنَ سَبَإٍ فَتَنَاوَلَ عَرْشَ بِلْقِيسَ حَتَّى صَيَّرَهُ إِلَى سُلَيْمَانَ ثُمَّ انْبَسَطَتِ الْأَرْضُ فِي أَقَلَّ مِنْ طَرْفَةِ عَيْنٍ وَ عِنْدَنَا مِنْهُ اثْنَانِ وَ سَبْعُونَ حَرْفاً وَ حَرْفٌ عِنْدَ اللَّهِ اسْتَأْثَرَ بِهِ فِي عِلْمِ الْغَيْبِ.


3. It is narrated to us by Al Husayn Bin Muhammad Bin Aamir, from Mu‘alla Bin Muhammad, from Ahmad Bin Muhammad Bin Abdullah, from Ali Bin Muhammad Al Nowfaly, ‘From Abu Muhammad Al-Askari (a.s.), he (the narrator) said, ‘I heard him (a.s.) saying: ‘The Magnificent Name of Allah is of seventy-three letters, and rather there was one letter from it with Asif (as). He spoke and the ground submerged for him in what was between him and (city of) Saba, and he grabbed the Throne of Bilquis until he brought it to Suleyman (as). Then the ground spread out in less than the blink of an eye; And with us (a.s.) there are seventy-two letters, and one letter is with Allah , He Chose it regarding knowledge of the unseen’’.
