حَدَّثَنَا الْحَسَنُ بْنُ عَلِيِّ بْنِ النُّعْمَانِ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنْ بَكْرِ بْنِ كَرِبٍ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع قَالَ: إِنَّ اللَّهَ أَخَذَ الْمِيثَاقَ مِيثَاقَ شِيعَتِنَا مِنْ صُلْبِ آدَمَ فَنَعْرِفُ خِيَارَكُمْ مِنْ شِرَارِكُمْ‏.


1. It is narrated to us by Al Hassan Bin Ali Bin Al Numan, from his father, from Bakr Bin Karb, ‘From Abu Abdullah (a.s.) having said: ‘Allah (azwj) Took the Covenant, Covenant of our (a.s.) Shias from the Sulb (ribs) of Adam (as). Thus we (a.s.) recognise their good ones from their evil ones’’.




حَدَّثَنَا بِهَذَا الْإِسْنَادِ عَنْ جَابِرٍ عَنْ أَبِي جَعْفَرٍ ع قَالَ: إِنَّ اللَّهَ أَخَذَ مِيثَاقَ شِيعَتِنَا مِنْ صُلْبِ آدَمَ فَنَعْرِفُ‏ بِذَلِكَ حُبَّ الْمُحِبِّ وَ إِنْ أَظْهَرَ خِلَافَ ذَلِكَ بِلِسَانِهِ وَ نَعْرِفُ بُغْضَ الْمُبْغِضِ وَ إِنْ أَظْهَرَ حُبَّنَا أَهْلَ الْبَيْتِ‏.


2. It is narrated to us by this chain, from Jabir, ‘From Abu Ja’far (a.s.) having said: ‘Allah (azwj) Took the Covenant of our (a.s.) Shias from the Sulb (ribs) of Adam (as). Thus we (a.s.) recognise due to that, love of the lover and even if he were to display opposition by his tongue, and we (a.s.) recognise the hatred of the hater and even if he displays our (a.s.) love, People (a.s.) of the Household’.




’ وَ حَدَّثَنَا أَحْمَدُ بْنُ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ فَضَّالٍ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنِ ابْنِ بُكَيْرٍ عَنْ زُرَارَةَ قَالَ: كُنْتُ أَنَا وَ عَبْدُ الْوَاحِدِ بْنُ الْمُخْتَارِ وَ سَعْدُ بْنُ لُقْمَانَ‏ وَ مَعَهُمَا عُمَرُ بْنُ شَجَرَةَ الْكِنْدِيُّ عِنْدَ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع فَقَالَ أَبُو عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع مَنْ هَذَا فَقَالا لَهُ عُمَرُ بْنُ شَجَرَةَ وَ أَثْنَيْنَا عَلَيْهِ وَ ذَكَرْنَا مِنْ حَالِهِ وَ وَرَعِهِ وَ حُبِّهِ لِإِخْوَانِهِ وَ بَذْلِهِ وَ صَنِيعِهِ إِلَيْهِمْ فَقَالَ لَهُمَا أَبُو عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع مَا أَرَى لَكُمَا عِلْماً بِالنَّاسِ إِنِّي لَأَكْتَفِي مِنَ الرَّجُلِ بِاللَّحْظَةِ إِنَّ ذَا مِنْ أَخْبَثِ النَّاسِ أَوْ مِنْ شَرِّ النَّاسِ قَالَ فَكَانَ عُمَرُ بَعْدَ مَا نَزَعَ عَنْ مُحَرَّمِ‏ اللَّهِ رَكِبَهُ‏.


3. And it is narrated to us by Ahmad Bin Al Hassan Bin Fazzal, from his father, from Ibn Bukeyr, from Zurara who said, ‘I and Abdul Wahid Bin Al-Mukhtar and Sa’ad Bin Luqman, and with them was Umar Bin Shajara Al-Kindy in the presence of Abu Abdullah (a.s.). Abu Abdullah (a.s.) said: ‘Who is this?’ Umar Bin Shajara told him (a.s.), and praised upon him, and we mentioned from his state, and his devoutness, and his love for his brethren, and his spending, and his kind acts to them. Abu Abdullah (a.s.) said to both of them: ‘I (a.s.) do not see any knowledge for you of the people. I (a.s.) suffice with the one moment with the men, whether he is from the wicked ones of the people or from the evil people’. He (the narrator) said, ‘Umar was such afterwards that there was no Prohibition of Allah (azwj) except he indulged in it’’.




حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْحُسَيْنِ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ هِلَالٍ عَنْ عُقْبَةَ قَالَ: كُنْتُ أَنَا وَ الْمُعَلَّى بْنُ خُنَيْسٍ عِنْدَ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع فَقَالَ أَبُو عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع مَا جَلَسَ مَجْلِسَكَ أَحَدٌ إِلَّا عَرَفْتُهُ‏.


4. It is narrated to us by Muhammad Bin Al Husayn, from Muhammad Bin Abdullah Bin HIlal, from Uqba who said, ‘I and Al-Mu‘alla Bin Khunays were in the presence of Abu Abdullah (a.s.), and Abu Abdullah (a.s.) said: ‘No one sits in your gathering except I (a.s.) recognise him’’.
