حَدَّثَنَا أَحْمَدُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنِ الْحُسَيْنِ بْنِ سَعِيدٍ عَنِ الْحُسَيْنِ بْنِ‏ عَلِيٍّ عَنْ كَرَّامِ بْنِ كَرَّامٍ عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ طَلْحَةَ قَالَ: سَأَلْتُ أَبَا عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع عَنِ الْوَزَغِ فَقَالَ هُوَ رِجْسٌ وَ هُوَ مَسْخٌ وَ إِذَا قَتَلْتَهُ فَاغْتَسِلْ ثُمَّ قَالَ إِنَّ أَبِي كَانَ قَاعِداً فِي الْحِجْرِ وَ مَعَهُ رَجُلٌ يُحَدِّثُهُ فَإِذَا وَزَغٌ يُوَلْوِلُ بِلِسَانِهِ فَقَالَ أَبِي لِلرَّجُلِ أَ تَدْرِي مَا يَقُولُ هَذَا الْوَزَغُ فَقَالَ الرَّجُلُ لَا عِلْمَ لِي بِمَا يَقُولُ قَالَ فَإِنَّهُ يَقُولُ وَ اللَّهِ لَئِنْ ذَكَرْتَ عُثْمَانَ لَأَسُبَّنَّ عَلِيّاً ع أَبَداً حَتَّى تَقُومَ‏ مِنْ هَاهُنَا.


1. It is narrated to us by Ahmad Bin Muhammad, from Al Husayn Bin Saeed, from Al Husayn Bin Ali, from Karram Bin Karram, from Abdullah Bin Talha who said, ‘I asked Abu Abdullah (a.s.) about the lizard. He (a.s.) said: ‘It is unclean, and it is morphed, and when you kill it, so wash’. Then he (a.s.) said: ‘My (a.s.) father (a.s.) was seated in the room and with him (a.s.) was a man, he (a.s.) was narrating to him, when a lizard ululated by its tongue. My (a.s.) father (a.s.) said to the man: ‘Do you know what this lizard is saying?’ The man said, ‘There is no knowledge for me of what it is saying’. He (a.s.) said: ‘It is saying, ‘By Allah (azwj)! If you were to mention Usman, I will revile Ali (a.s.) for ever until the one who is over here arises (to go away)’’.




حَدَّثَنَا الْحَجَّالُ عَنِ اللُّؤْلُؤِيِّ عَنِ ابْنِ سِنَانٍ‏ عَنْ فُضَيْلٍ الْأَعْوَرِ عَنْ بَعْضِ أَصْحَابِنَا قَالَ: كَانَ رَجُلٌ عِنْدَ أَبِي جَعْفَرٍ ع مِنْ هَذِهِ الْعِصَابَةِ يُحَادِثُهُ فِي شَيْ‏ءٍ مِنْ ذِكْرِ عُثْمَانَ فَإِذَا وَزَغٌ قَدْ قَرْقَرَ مِنْ فَوْقِ الْحَائِطِ فَقَالَ أَبُو جَعْفَرٍ ع أَ تَدْرِي مَا يَقُولُ‏ قُلْتُ لَا قَالَ يَقُولُ لَتَكُفَّنَّ عَنْ ذِكْرِ عُثْمَانَ أَوْ لَأَسُبَّنَّ عَلِيّاً.


2. It is narrated to us by Al Hajjal, from Al luluie, from Ibn Sinan, from Fuzeyl Al Awr, from one of our companions who said, ‘There was a man from this group in the presence of Abu Ja’far (a.s.) discussing with him (a.s.) regarding something from the mention of Usman, and there was a lizard which had uttered from above the wall. Abu Ja’far (a.s.) said: ‘Do you know what it is saying?’ I said, ‘No’. He (a.s.) said: ‘It is saying, ‘Either you refrain from mentioning Usman or I (a.s.) will revile Ali (a.s.)’’.
