حَدَّثَنَا أَحْمَدُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ إِسْمَاعِيلَ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ عُذَافِرٍ عَنْ أَبِي يَعْقُوبَ‏ الْأَحْوَلِ قَالَ: خَرَجْنَا مَعَ أَبِي بَصِيرٍ وَ نَحْنُ عِدَّةٌ فَدَخَلْنَا مَعَهُ عَلَى أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع فَقَالَ يَا أَبَا مُحَمَّدٍ إِنَّ عِلْمَ عَلِيِّ بْنِ أَبِي طَالِبٍ ع مِنْ عِلْمِ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ ص فَعُلِّمْنَاهُ نَحْنُ فِيمَا عُلِّمْنَاهُ فَاللَّهَ فَاعْبُدْ وَ إِيَّاهُ فَارْجُ‏.


1. It is narrated to us by Ahmad Bin Muhammad, from Muhammad Bin Ismail, from Muhammad Bin Uzafir, from Abu Yaqoub Al Ahowl who said, ‘We went out with Abu Baseer and we were a number. We entered with him to see Abu Abdullah (a.s.). He (a.s.) said: ‘O Abu Muhammad! Knowledge of Ali (a.s.) Bin Abu Talib (a.s.) is from knowledge of Rasool-Allah (saww). We (a.s.) know it regarding what he (saww) taught him (a.s.). Allah (azwj) is what I (a.s.) worship and to Him (azwj) I (a.s.) shall return’’.




حَدَّثَنَا أَحْمَدُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ عَلِيِّ بْنِ الْحَكَمِ عَنْ سَيْفِ بْنِ عَمِيرَةَ عَنْ أَبِي الصَّبَّاحِ قَالَ: وَ اللَّهِ لَقَدْ قَالَ لِي جَعْفَرُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ ع إِنَّ اللَّهَ عَلَّمَ نَبِيَّهُ التَّنْزِيلَ وَ التَّأْوِيلَ قَالَ فَعَلَّمَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ص عَلِيّاً قَالَ وَ عَلَّمَنَا وَ اللَّهِ ثُمَّ قَالَ مَا صَنَعْتُمْ مِنْ شَيْ‏ءٍ أَوْ حَلَفْتُمْ عَلَيْهِ مِنْ يَمِينٍ فَأَنْتُمْ مِنْهُ فِي سَعَةٍ.


2. It is narrated to us by Ahmad Bin Muhammad, from Ali Bin Al Hakam, from Sayf Bin Ameyra, from Abu Al Sabbah who said, ‘By Allah (azwj)! Ja’far (a.s.) Bin Muhammad (a.s.) had said to me: ‘Allah (azwj) Taught to His (azwj) Prophet (saww) the Revelation and the interpretation. Rasool-Allah (saww) taught Ali (a.s.), and he (a.s.) taught us (a.s.), by Allah (azwj)’. Then he (a.s.) said: ‘Whatever you do or swear upon of an oath, you are in a leeway from it’’.




حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ عَبْدِ الْحَمِيدِ عَنْ مَنْصُورِ بْنِ يُونُسَ عَنِ ابْنِ أُذَيْنَةَ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ مُسْلِمٍ قَالَ سَمِعْتُ أَبَا جَعْفَرٍ ع يَقُولُ‏ نَزَلَ جَبْرَئِيلُ ع عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ ص بِرُمَّانَتَيْنِ مِنَ الْجَنَّةِ فَلَقِيَهُ عَلِيٌّ ع فَقَالَ لَهُ مَا هَاتَانِ الرُّمَّانَتَانِ فِي يَدَيْكَ قَالَ أَمَّا هَذِهِ فَالنُّبُوَّةُ لَيْسَ لَكَ فِيهَا نَصِيبٌ وَ أَمَّا هَذِهِ فَالْعِلْمُ ثُمَّ فَلَقَهَا رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ص فَأَعْطَاهُ نِصْفَهَا وَ أَخَذَ نِصْفَهَا رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ص ثُمَّ قَالَ أَنْتَ شَرِيكِي فِيهِ وَ أَنَا شَرِيكُكَ فِيهِ قَالَ فَلَمْ يَعْلَمْ وَ اللَّهِ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ص حَرْفاً مِمَّا عَلَّمَهُ اللَّهُ إِلَّا عَلَّمَهُ عَلِيّاً ع ثُمَّ انْتَهَى ذَلِكَ الْعِلْمُ إِلَيْنَا ثُمَّ وَضَعَ يَدَهُ عَلَى صَدْرِهِ‏.


3. It is narrated to us by Muhammad Bin Abdul Hameed, from Mansour Bin Yunus, from Ibn Uzina, from Muhammad Bin Muslim who said, ‘I heard Abu Ja’far (a.s.) saying: ‘Jibraeel (as) descended unto Muhammad (saww) with two pomegranates from the Paradise. He (saww) met Ali (a.s.), and he (a.s.) said to him (saww): ‘What are these two pomegranates in your (saww) hand?’ He (saww) said: ‘As for this one, it is the Prophet-hood. There isn’t any share for you (a.s.) in it. And as for this one, it is the knowledge’. Then Rasool-Allah (saww) split it and gave him (a.s.) half of it, and Rasool-Allah (saww) took its half. Then he (saww) said: ‘You (a.s.) are my (saww) participant in it and I (saww) am your (a.s.) participant in it’. He (a.s.) said: ‘By Allah (azwj)! Rasool-Allah (saww) did not learn a single letter from what Allah (azwj) Taught him (saww), except he (saww) taught Ali (a.s.), then that knowledge ended up to us (a.s.)’. Then he (a.s.) placed his (a.s.) hand upon his (a.s.) chest’’.




حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ اللَّهِ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ مُعَمَّرِ بْنِ خَلَّادٍ عَنْ أَبِي الْحَسَنِ الرِّضَا ع قَالَ سَمِعْتُهُ يَقُولُ‏ إِنَّا أَهْلَ الْبَيْتِ‏ يَتَوَارَثُ أَصَاغِرُنَا عَنْ أَكَابِرِنَا الْقُذَّةَ بِالْقُذَّةِ.


4. It is narrated to us by Abdullah Bin Muhammad, from Moammar Bin Khallad, ‘Abu Al-Hassan Al-Ridha (a.s.), he (the narrator) said, ‘I heard him (a.s.) saying: ‘We (a.s.), People (a.s.) of the Household inherit each other, our (a.s.) young ones (a.s.) from our (a.s.) elders (a.s.), the arrow with the arrow (equal)’’.
