حَدَّثَنَا أَيُّوبُ بْنُ نُوحٍ عَنْ صَفْوَانَ بْنِ يَحْيَى عَنْ شُعَيْبٍ عَنْ ضُرَيْسٍ عَنْ أَبِي‏ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع قَالَ سَمِعْتُهُ يَقُولُ‏ إِنَّمَا الْعِلْمُ مَا حَدَثَ بِاللَّيْلِ وَ النَّهَارِ يَوْمٌ بِيَوْمٍ وَ سَاعَةٌ بِسَاعَةٍ.


1. It is narrated to us by Ayoub Bin Nuh, from Safwan Bin Yahya, from Shuayb, from Zureysh, ‘From Abu Abdullah (a.s.), he (the narrator) said, ‘I heard him (a.s.) saying: ‘But rather, the knowledge is what occurs by the night and day, day by day, and moment by moment’’.




حَدَّثَنَا أَحْمَدُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ عَلِيِّ بْنِ النُّعْمَانِ عَنِ ابْنِ مُسْكَانَ عَنْ ضُرَيْسٍ قَالَ: كُنْتُ مَعَ أَبِي بَصِيرٍ عِنْدَ أَبِي جَعْفَرٍ ع فَقَالَ لَهُ أَبُو بَصِيرٍ بِمَا يَعْلَمُ عَالِمُكُمْ جُعِلْتُ فِدَاكَ قَالَ يَا أَبَا مُحَمَّدٍ إِنَّ عَالِمَنَا لَا يَعْلَمُ الْغَيْبَ وَ لَوْ وَكَلَ اللَّهُ عَالِمَنَا إِلَى نَفْسِهِ كَانَ كَبَعْضِكُمْ وَ لَكِنْ يَحْدُثُ إِلَيْهِ سَاعَةً بَعْدَ سَاعَةٍ.


2. It is narrated to us by Ahmad Bin Muhammad, from Ali Bin Al Numan, from Ibn Muskan, from Zureys who said, ‘I was with Abu Baseer in the presence of Abu Ja’far (a.s.). Abu Baseer said to him (a.s.), ‘By what does your (a.s.) scholar (a.s.) knows? May I be sacrificed for you (a.s.)!’ He (a.s.) said: ‘O Abu Muhammad! Our (a.s.) scholar (a.s.) does not know the unseen, and if Allah (azwj) were to Allocate our (a.s.) scholar (a.s.) to himself (a.s.), he (a.s.) would be like one of you, but He (azwj) Narrates to him (a.s.), moment after moment’’.




حَدَّثَنَا أَحْمَدُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنِ الْأَهْوَازِيِّ عَنْ بَعْضِ أَصْحَابِنَا عَنْ أَبِي بَصِيرٍ قَالَ: قُلْتُ لِأَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع جُعِلْتُ فِدَاكَ أَيُّ شَيْ‏ءٍ هُوَ الْعِلْمُ عِنْدَكُمْ قَالَ مَا يَحْدُثُ‏ بِاللَّيْلِ وَ النَّهَارِ الْأَمْرُ بَعْدَ الْأَمْرِ وَ الشَّيْ‏ءُ بَعْدَ الشَّيْ‏ءِ إِلَى يَوْمِ الْقِيَامَةِ.


3. It is narrated to us by Ahmad Bin Muhammad, from Al Ahwazy, from one of our companions, from Abu Baseer who said, ‘I said to Abu Abdullah (a.s.), ‘May I be sacrificed for you (a.s.)! Which thing is the knowledge with you (a.s.)?’ He (a.s.) said: ‘What occurs by the night and day, the matter after the matter, and the thing after the thing, up to the Day of Qiyamah’’.




حَدَّثَنَا أَحْمَدُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنِ ابْنِ سِنَانٍ عَنِ ابْنِ مُسْكَانَ عَنْ أَبِي بَصِيرٍ قَالَ سَمِعْتُهُ يَقُولُ‏ إِنَّ عِنْدَنَا الصُّحُفَ الْأَوْلَى صُحُفَ إِبْرَاهِيمَ وَ مُوسَى فَقَالَ لَهُ ضُرَيْسٌ أَ لَيْسَتْ هِيَ الْأَلْوَاحَ فَقَالَ بَلَى قَالَ ضُرَيْسٌ إِنَّ هَذَا لَهُوَ الْعِلْمُ فَقَالَ لَيْسَ هَذَا الْعِلْمَ إِنَّمَا هَذِهِ الْأَثَرَةُ إِنَّ الْعِلْمَ مَا يَحْدُثُ بِاللَّيْلِ وَ النَّهَارِ يوم [يَوْماً] بِيَوْمٍ وَ سَاعَةً بِسَاعَةٍ.

Zureys said, ‘Aren’t these the Tablets?’ He (a.s.) said: ‘Yes’. Zureys said, ‘Surely this, it is the knowledge!’ He (a.s.) said: ‘This isn’t the knowledge. But rather, these are the traces. The knowledge is what occurs by the night and day, day by day, moment by moment’’.




حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ اللَّهِ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ الْوَلِيدِ أَوْ عَمَّنْ رَوَاهُ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ الْوَلِيدِ عَنْ يُونُسَ بْنِ يَعْقُوبَ عَنْ مَنْصُورِ بْنِ حَازِمٍ قَالَ سَمِعْتُ أَبَا عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع يَقُولُ‏ إِنَّ عِنْدَنَا صَحِيفَةً فِيهِ أَرْشُ الْخَدْشِ قَالَ قُلْتُ هَذَا هُوَ الْعِلْمُ قَالَ إِنَّ هَذَا لَيْسَ بِالْعِلْمِ إِنَّمَا هُوَ أَثَرَةٌ إِنَّمَا الْعِلْمُ الَّذِي يَحْدُثُ فِي كُلِّ يَوْمٍ وَ لَيْلَةٍ عَنْ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ ص وَ عَنْ عَلِيِّ بْنِ أَبِي طَالِبٍ ع‏.
