حَدَّثَنَا إِبْرَاهِيمُ بْنُ هَاشِمٍ عَنِ ابْنِ فَضَّالٍ عَنِ ابْنِ جَمِيلَةَ عَنِ ابْنِ شُعَيْبٍ الْحَدَّادِ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ص‏ أَنَا أَوَّلُ قَادِمٍ عَلَى اللَّهِ ثُمَّ يَقْدَمُ عَلَيَّ كِتَابُ اللَّهِ ثُمَّ يَقْدَمُ عَلَيَّ أَهْلُ بَيْتِي ثُمَّ يَقْدَمُ عَلَيَّ أُمَّتِي فَيَقِفُونَ فَيَسْأَلُهُمْ مَا فعلتهم [فَعَلْتُمْ‏] فِي كِتَابِي وَ أَهْلِ بَيْتِ نَبِيِّكُمْ.


1. It is narrated to us by Ibrahim Bin Hashim, from Ibn Fazzal, from Ibn Jameela, from Ibn Shuayb Al Haddad, ‘From Abu Abdullah (a.s.) having said: ‘Rasool-Allah (saww) said: ‘I (saww) would be the first to arrive to Allah , then the Book of Allah would arrive to me (saww), then People (a.s.) of my (saww) Household would arrive to me (saww), then my (saww) community would arrive to me (saww). They would be taken and He would Question them: ‘What did you do regarding My Nook and People (a.s.) the Household of your Prophet (saww)’’.

2. It is narrated to us by Muhammad Bin Isa, and Yaqoun Bin Yazeed and others from Ibn Mahboub, from Is’haq Bin Ghalib, ‘From Abu Abdullah (a.s.) having said: ‘Rasool-Allah (saww) passed away and left behind in his (saww) community the Book of Allah and his (saww) successor Ali (a.s.) Bin Abu Talib (a.s.), Emir of the Momineen, and Imam of the pious, and the strong Rope of Allah , and the Firmest Handhold which has no cracks to it, and the emphasised Pact. Each one testifies for its companion with the ratification. The Imam (a.s.) speaks on behalf of Allah Mighty and Majestic in the Book with whatever Allah has Obligated in it upon the servants, from the obedience to Allah , and obedience of the Imam (a.s.) and his (a.s.) Wilayah and Obligation of his (a.s.) rights Allah Mighty and Majestic Showed, from the completion of His Religion and manifestation of His Command, and the Argumentation by His Divine Authority, and the illumination by His Light in the mines of His elite people and Chosen people of His best ones. So Allah Clarified by the Imams (a.s.) of guidance from the People (a.s.) of the Household of our Prophet (saww), about His Religion, and Delivered by them (a.s.) about the way of His Manifesto and Opened by them (a.s.) the hidden springs of His Knowledge. So, from the ones from the community of Muhammad (saww) who recognises the Obligation of the rights of his Imam (a.s.) would find the taste of sweetness of his Eman and would know the superiority of elegance of his Islam, because Allah Nominated the Imam (a.s.) as a flag for His creatures and Made him (a.s.) a Divine Authority upon the people of His world. Allah Crowned him (a.s.) the crown of dignity, and Overwhelmed him (a.s.) from the Noor of the Subduer extending by a means to the sky. Neither can its resource be terminated nor can what is in the Presence of Allah Blessed and Exalted be attained except by an aspect of the means of his (a.s.) way, nor will Allah Accept the deeds except by one having recognised him (a.s.). He is a knower of whatever is referred to him (a.s.) from confusion (from) the Revelation, and the blindness (from) the Sunnahs, and the doubts of the Fitna (discord), and Allah would not happen to Let stray a people after having Guided them until He Clarifies to then what they should be guarding against, [9:115], and it would become the far-reaching Proof from Allah upon the servants’’.




حَدَّثَنَا عَلِيُّ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنِ الْقَاسِمِ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ سُلَيْمَانَ بْنِ دَاوُدَ عَنْ يَحْيَى بْنِ أُدَيْمٍ‏ عَنْ شَرِيكٍ عَنْ جَابِرٍ قَالَ قَالَ أَبُو جَعْفَرٍ ع‏ دَعَا رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ص‏ أَصْحَابَهُ بِمِنًى فَقَالَ يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ إِنِّي تَارِكٌ فِيكُمُ الثَّقَلَيْنِ أَمَا إِنْ تَمَسَّكْتُمْ بِهِمَا لَنْ تَضِلُّوا كِتَابَ اللَّهِ وَ عِتْرَتِي أَهْلَ بَيْتِي فَإِنَّهُمَا لَنْ يَفْتَرِقَا حَتَّى يَرِدَا عَلَيَّ الْحَوْضَ ثُمَّ قَالَ أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ إِنِّي تَارِكٌ فِيكُمْ حُرُمَاتِ اللَّهِ كِتَابَ اللَّهِ وَ عِتْرَتِي وَ الْكَعْبَةَ الْبَيْتَ الْحَرَامِ ثُمَّ قَالَ أَبُو جَعْفَرٍ ع أَمَّا كِتَابَ اللَّهِ فَحَرَّفُوا وَ أَمَّا الْكَعْبَةَ فَهَدَمُوا وَ أَمَّا الْعِتْرَةَ فَقَتَلُوا وَ كُلَّ وَدَائِعِ اللَّهِ فَقَدْ تَبَّرُوا.


3. It is narrated to us by Ali Bin Muhammad, from Al Qasim Bin Muhammad, from Suleyman Bin Dawood, from Yahya Bin Udeym, from Shareek, from Jabir who said, ‘Abu Ja’far (a.s.) said: ‘Rasool-Allah (saww) called his (saww) companions at Mina and said: ‘O you people! I (saww) am leaving behind among you all the two weighty things, if you were to adhere with these two, you will never stray – Book of Allah and my (saww) family, People (a.s.) of my (saww) Household, for these two will never separate until they return to me (saww) at the Fountain’. Then he (saww) said: ‘I (saww) am leaving behind among you all Sanctities of Allah – Book of Allah and my (saww) family and the Kabah the Sacred House’. Then Abu Ja’far (a.s.) said: ‘As for the Book of Allah , so they altered (it), and as for the Kabah, so they demolished (it), and as for the family (a.s.), for they killed (them (a.s.)), and every entrustment of Allah , they have broken (and destroyed)’’.

4. It is narrated to us by Muhammad Bin Al Husayn, from Ja’far Bin Bashir, from Zareeh Bin Yazeed, ‘From Abu Abdullah (a.s.) having said: ‘Rasool-Allah (saww) said: ‘I (saww) am leaving behind among you all the two weighty things – Book of Allah and People (a.s.) of my (saww) Household’. So we (a.s.) are the People (a.s.) of his (saww) Household’’.




حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْحُسَيْنِ عَنِ النَّضْرِ بْنِ شُعَيْبٍ عَنِ الْقَلَانِسِيِ‏ عَنْ رَجُلٍ عَنْ أَبِي جَعْفَرٍ عَنْ جَابِرِ بْنِ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ الْأَنْصَارِيِّ قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ص‏ يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ إِنِّي تَارِكٌ فِيكُمُ الثَّقَلَيْنِ الثَّقَلَ الْأَكْبَرَ وَ الثَّقَلَ الْأَصْغَرَ إِنْ تَمَسَّكْتُمْ بِهِمَا لَا تَضِلُّوا وَ لَا تَبَدَّلُوا وَ إِنِّي سَأَلْتُ اللَّطِيفَ الْخَبِيرَ أَنْ لَا يَتَفَرَّقَا حَتَّى يَرِدَا عَلَيَّ الْحَوْضَ فَأُعْطِيتُ ذَلِكَ قَالُوا وَ مَا الثَّقَلُ الْأَكْبَرُ وَ مَا الثَّقَلُ الْأَصْغَرُ قَالَ الثَّقَلُ الْأَكْبَرُ كِتَابُ اللَّهِ سَبَبٌ طَرَفُهُ بِيَدِ اللَّهِ وَ سَبَبٌ طَرَفُهُ بِأَيْدِيكُمْ وَ الثَّقَلُ الْأَصْغَرُ عِتْرَتِي وَ أَهْلُ بَيْتِي‏.


5. It is narrated to us by Muhammad Bin Al Husayn, from Al Nazr Bin Shueyb, from Al Qalanisy, from a man, ‘From Abu Ja’far (a.s.), from Jabir Bin Abdullah Al-Ansari who said, ‘Rasool-Allah (saww) said: ‘O you people! I (saww) am leaving behind among you all the two weighty things – the bigger weighty thing and the smaller weighty thing. If you were to adhere with these two, you will neither stray nor alter; and I (saww) did ask the Subtle, the Informed that these two should not separate until they return to me (saww) at the Fountain, and He Granted that’. They said, ‘And what is the bigger weighty things and what is the smaller weighty thing?’ He (saww) said: ‘The bigger weighty things is the Book of Allah , a means of its end is in the Hand of Allah , and a means of its end it in your hands; and the smaller weighty thing is my (saww) family and People (a.s.) of my (saww) Household’’.




حَدَّثَنَا إِبْرَاهِيمُ بْنُ هَاشِمٍ عَنْ يَحْيَى بْنِ أَبِي عِمْرَانَ عَنْ يُونُسَ عَنْ هِشَامِ بْنِ الْحَكَمِ عَنْ سَعْدٍ الْإِسْكَافِ قَالَ: سَأَلْتُ أَبَا جَعْفَرٍ ع عَنْ قَوْلِ النَّبِيِّ ص إِنِّي تَارِكٌ فِيكُمُ الثَّقَلَيْنِ فَتَمَسَّكُوا بِهِمَا فَإِنَّهُمَا لَنْ يَفْتَرِقَا حَتَّى يَرِدَا عَلَيَّ الْحَوْضَ قَالَ فَقَالَ أَبُو جَعْفَرٍ ع لَا يَزَالُ كِتَابُ اللَّهِ وَ الدَّلِيلُ مِنَّا يَدُلُّ عَلَيْهِ‏ حَتَّى يَرِدَا عَلَيَّ الْحَوْضَ‏.


6. It is narrated to us by Ibrahim Bin Hashim, from Yahya Bin Abu Imran, from Yunus, from Hisham Bin Al Hakam, from Sa’ad Al Iskaf who said, ‘I asked Abu Ja’far (a.s.) about the words of the Prophet (saww): ‘I (saww) am leaving behind among you all the two weighty things, so adhere with these two, for they will never separate until they return to me at the Fountain’. He (the narrator) said, ‘Abu Ja’far (a.s.) said: ‘The Book of Allah and the evidence from us (a.s.) will not cease to point to it until they both return to me (a.s.) at the Fountain’’.
