حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْحُسَيْنِ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ سِنَانٍ عَنْ عَمَّارِ بْنِ مَرْوَانَ عَنِ الْمُنَخَّلِ عَنْ جَابِرٍ عَنْ أَبِي جَعْفَرٍ ع أَنَّهُ قَالَ: مَا يَسْتَطِيعُ أَحَدٌ أَنْ يَدَّعِيَ أَنَّهُ جَمَعَ الْقُرْآنَ كُلَّهُ ظَاهِرَهُ وَ بَاطِنَهُ غَيْرُ الْأَوْصِيَاءِ.


1. It is narrated to us by Muhammad Bin Al Husayn, from Muhammad Bin Sinan, from Ammar Bin Marwan, from Al Munakhal, from Jabir, ‘From Abu Ja’far (a.s.) having said: ‘There is no one capable of claiming that he collected the Quran, all of it, its apparent and its esoteric, apart from the successors (a.s.)’’.




حَدَّثَنَا أَحْمَدُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ مَحْبُوبٍ عَنْ عَمْرِو بْنِ أَبِي الْمِقْدَامِ عَنْ جَابِرٍ قَالَ سَمِعْتُ أَبَا جَعْفَرٍ ع يَقُولُ‏ مَا مِنْ أَحَدٍ مِنَ النَّاسِ يَقُولُ إِنَّهُ جَمَعَ الْقُرْآنَ كُلَّهُ كَمَا أَنْزَلَ اللَّهُ إِلَّا كَذَّابٌ وَ مَا جَمَعَهُ وَ مَا حَفِظَهُ كَمَا أَنْزَلَ اللَّهُ إِلَّا عَلِيُّ بْنُ أَبِي طَالِبٍ وَ الْأَئِمَّةُ مِنْ بَعْدِهِ.


2. It is narrated to us by Ahmad Bin Muhammad, from Al Hassan Bin Mahboub, from Amro bin Abu Al Miqdam, from Jabir who said, ‘I heard Abu Ja’far (a.s.) saying: ‘There is on one from the people who can say he collected the Quran, all of it, just as Allah Revealed, except a liar, and no one collected it and preserved it just as Allah Revealed except Ali (a.s.) Bin Abu Talib (a.s.) and the Imams (a.s.) from after him (a.s.)’’.

3. It is narrated to us by Muhammad Bin Al-Husayn, from Abdul Rahman Bin Abu Najran, from Hashim, from Salim Bin Abu Salma who said, ‘A man recited unto Abu Abdullah (a.s.), and I was listening, phrases from the Quran, not upon what the people were reciting it. Abu Abdullah (a.s.) said: ‘Shh! Shh! Refrain from this Quran. Recite it just as the people are reciting until Al-Qaim (a.s.) rises. So, when he (a.s.) does rise, he (a.s.) will recite the Book of Allah upon its limits, and he (a.s.) will bring out the Parchment which Ali (a.s.) had written it’. And he (a.s.) said: ‘Ali (a.s.) had brought it out to the people when he (saww) was free from it, and had written it. He (a.s.) said to them: ‘This is the Book of Allah just as Allah had Revealed unto Muhammad (saww), and I (a.s.) have collected it between the two Tablets’. They said, ‘There is a comprehensive Parchment with us wherein is the Quran. There is no need for us regarding it’. He (a.s.) said: ‘But, by Allah ! You will not be seeing it after this day of yours, ever!’ But rather, Ali (a.s.) was informing you all with it when he (a.s.) had collected it, for you to be reading it’’.




حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْحُسَيْنِ عَنِ النَّضْرِ بْنِ شُعَيْبٍ عَنْ عَبْدِ الْغَفَّارِ قَالَ: سَأَلَ رَجُلٌ أَبَا جَعْفَرٍ ع فَقَالَ أَبُو جَعْفَرٍ مَا يَسْتَطِيعُ أَحَدٌ يَقُولَ جَمَعَ الْقُرْآنَ كُلَّهُ‏ غَيْرُ الْأَوْصِيَاءِ.

حَدَّثَنَا أَحْمَدُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنِ ابْنِ سِنَانٍ عَنْ مُرَازِمٍ وَ مُوسَى بْنِ بُكَيْرٍ قَالا سَمِعْنَا أَبَا عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع يَقُولُ‏ إِنَّا أَهْلَ الْبَيْتِ لَمْ يَزَلِ اللَّهُ يَبْعَثُ فِينَا مَنْ يَعْلَمُ كِتَابَهُ مِنْ أَوَّلِهِ إِلَى آخِرِهِ.


6. It is narrated to us by Ahmad Bin Muhammad, from Ibn Sinan, from Murazim and Musa Bin Bukeyr who said, ‘We heard Abu Abdullah (a.s.) saying: ‘We (a.s.), People (a.s.) of the Household, Allah did not cease to be Sending among us one (a.s.) who knows His Book, from its beginning to its end’’.




حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ عِيسَى عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ الْمُؤْمِنِ عَنْ عَبْدِ الْأَعْلَى مَوْلَى آلِ سَامٍ قَالَ سَمِعْتُ أَبَا عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع يَقُولُ‏ وَ اللَّهِ إِنِّي لَأَعْلَمُ كِتَابَ اللَّهِ مِنْ أَوَّلِهِ إِلَى آخِرِهِ كَأَنَّهُ فِي كَفِّي فِيهِ خَبَرُ السَّمَاءِ وَ خَبَرُ الْأَرْضِ وَ خَبَرُ مَا يَكُونُ وَ خَبَرُ مَا هُوَ كَائِنٌ قَالَ اللَّهُ فِيهِ تِبْيَانُ كُلِّ شَيْ‏ءٍ.

I (a.s.) am more knowing of the Book of Allah , from its beginning to its end, as if it is in the palm of my (a.s.) hand; it is news of the sky and news of the earth, and news of what has happened and news of what would be happening. Allah Said, in it is a clarification of all things, [16:89]’’.
