1. It is narrated to us by Ali Bin Abdul Rahman, from Al Hassan Bin Al Husayn Al Luluie, from Muhammad Bin Sinan, from Ismail Bin Jabir, from Abdul Kareem Bin Umar, from Abdul Hameed Bin Al Daylam, ‘From Abu Abdullah (a.s.) having said: ‘Allah (azwj) Blessed and Exalted Revealed to Rasool-Allah (saww): “Your (saww) Prophet-hood has expired and your (saww) days are completed, so make the Greatest Name, and the inheritance of knowledge, and traces of the knowledge of Prophet-hood (Ahadeeth) to be with Ali (a.s.) Bin Abu Talib (a.s.), for I (azwj) do not Leave the earth except and there would be a scholar (a.s.) for Me (azwj) by whom My (azwj) obedience would be recognised, and My (azwj) Wilayah would be recognised, being a Divine Authority between the expiry of the Prophet (as) up to the emergence of the other Prophet (as)!” So, Rasool-Allah (saww) bequeathed the Greatest Name, and the inheritance of the knowledge, and traces of the knowledge of Prophet-hood (Ahadeeth), to Ali (a.s.) Bin Abu Talib (a.s.)’’.




حَدَّثَنَا بَعْضُ أَصْحَابِنَا عَنِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ الْحُسَيْنِ اللُّؤْلُؤِيِّ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ الْفُضَيْلِ عَنْ أَبِي حَمْزَةَ الثُّمَالِيِّ عَنْ أَبِي جَعْفَرٍ ع قَالَ: لَمَّا قَضَى رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ص نُبُوَّتَهُ وَ اسْتُكْمِلَتْ أَيَّامُهُ أَوْحَى اللَّهُ إِلَيْهِ يَا مُحَمَّدُ ص قَدْ قَضَيْتَ نُبُوَّتَكَ وَ اسْتَكْمَلْتَ أَيَّامَكَ فَاجْعَلِ الْعِلْمَ الَّذِي عِنْدَكَ وَ الْآثَارَ وَ الِاسْمَ الْأَكْبَرَ وَ مِيرَاثَ الْعِلْمِ وَ آثَارَ النُّبُوَّةِ فِي أَهْلِ بَيْتِكَ عِنْدَ عَلِيِّ بْنِ أَبِي طَالِبٍ ع فَإِنِّي لَمْ أَقْطَعْ عِلْمَ النُّبُوَّةِ مِنَ الْعَقِبِ مِنْ ذُرِّيَّتِكَ كَمَا لَمْ أَقْطَعْهَا مِنْ بُيُوتَاتِ الْأَنْبِيَاءِ الَّذِينَ كَانُوا بَيْنَكَ وَ بَيْنَ أَبِيكَ آدَمَ صَلَوَاتُ اللَّهِ عَلَيْهِ وَ عَلَيْهِمْ أَجْمَعِينَ.


2. It is narrated to us by one of our companions, from Al Hassan Bin Al Husayn Al Luluie, from Muhammad Bin Al Fuzeyl, from Abu Hamza Al Sumali, ‘From Abu Ja’far (a.s.) having said: ‘When the Prophet-hood of Rasool-Allah (saww) had expired, and his (saww) days were completed, Allah (azwj) Revealed to him (saww): “O Muhammad (saww)! Your (saww) Prophet-hood has expired, and your (saww) days are completed, so make the knowledge which is with you (a.s.), and the traces (Ahadeeth), and the Greatest Name, and the inheritance of knowledge, and the effects of the Prophet-hood to be in People (a.s.) of your (saww) Household to be with Ali (a.s.) Bin Abu Talib (a.s.). I (azwj) will not Cut-off the knowledge of Prophet-hood from the posterity from your (saww) offspring just as I (azwj) did not Cut it off from the households of the Prophets (as), those who were between you (saww) and your (saww) father (as) Adam (as)!” May the Salawaat of Allah (azwj) be upon them (as) all’’.

4. It is narrated to us by Muhammad Bin Isa, from Muhammad Bin Sinan, from Ismail Bin Jabir, from Abdul Kareem Bin Amro, from Abdul Hameed Bin Abu Al Daylam, From Abu Abdullah (a.s.) having said: ‘Musa (as) bequeathed to Yoshua Bin Noon (as), and Yoshua Bin Noon (as) bequeathed to a son (as) of Haroun (as) and did not bequeath to a son of Musa (as) because Allah (azwj) Gave him (as) the choice. He (as) could choose one he (as) so desired from the ones he (as) so desired, and Musa (as) gave the glad tidings of the Messiah to Yoshua Bin Noon (as). When Allah (azwj) Sent the Messiah (as), he (as) said to them: ‘Rasool-Allah (saww) will be coming from after me (as) whose name is Ahmad (saww), being from the sons of Ismail (as). He (saww) will ratify me (as) and ratify you all, and it flowed between the disciples in the preservers. And rather, Allah (azwj) Named them as the ‘preservers’, because they preserved the Greatest Name, and it is the Book by which are known all thing which had happened with the Prophets (as). Allah (azwj) the Exalted is Saying: We had Sent Our Rasools with the clear proofs, and We sent down the Book and the Scale with them, [57:25]. The Book is the Greatest Name, and rather it is recognised from what the is called knowledge of the Torah, and the Evangel, and the Furqan (Quran). So, what was written by Noah (as), and what were the Book of Salih (as), and Shuayb (as), and Ibrahim (as), and Allah (azwj) has Informed: Surely this is in the former Parchments [87:18] The Parchments of Ibrahim and Musa [87:19]. So, where are the Parchments of Ibrahim (as)? As for the Parchments of Ibrahim, it is the Greatest Name, and the Parchments of Musa (a.s.) is the Greatest Name. So, the bequest did not cease to be bequeathed by a scholar (as) to a scholar (as) until it was handed to Muhammad (saww). Then Jibraeel (as) came to him (saww) and said to him (saww): “You (saww) have spent your (saww) Prophet-hood, and completed your (saww) days, so make the Greatest Name, and the inheritance of knowledge, and the effects of Prophet-hood to be with Ali (a.s.). I (azwj) do not leave the earth except and there would be a scholar (as) in it for Me (azwj), My (azwj) obedience would be recognised by him (as), and My (azwj) Wilayah would be recognised by him (as), and he (as) would happen to be a Divine Authority for the ones to be born between the expiry of a Prophet (as) up to the emergence of another. Thus, Transfer the Greatest Name, and the inheritance of knowledge, and the traces of knowledge of Prophet-hood (Ahadeeth) to Ali (a.s.) Bin Abu Talib (a.s.)”’.
