أَبِی ره قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا سَعْدُ بْنُ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا إِبْرَاهِیمُ بْنُ هَاشِمٍ عَنِ الْقَاسِمِ بْنِ یَحْیَی عَنْ جَدِّهِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ رَاشِدٍ عَنْ أَبِی عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع قَالَ: قُلْتُ جُعِلْتُ فِدَاکَ لِلْمُسْلِمِینَ عِیدٌ غَیْرُ الْعِیدَیْنِ قَالَ نَعَمْ یَا حَسَنُ أَعْظَمُهُمَا وَ أَشْرَفُهُمَا قَالَ قُلْتُ لَهُ وَ أَیُّ یَوْمٍ هُوَ قَالَ یَوْمٌ نُصِبَ أَمِیرُ الْمُؤْمِنِینَ ع عَلَماً عَلَی النَّاسِ قُلْتُ جُعِلْتُ فِدَاکَ وَ أَیُّ یَوْمٍ هُوَ قَالَ إِنَّ الْأَیَّامَ تَدُورُ وَ هُوَ یَوْمُ ثَمَانِیَهَ عَشَرَ مِنْ ذِی الْحِجَّهِ قَالَ قُلْتُ جُعِلْتُ فِدَاکَ وَ مَا یَنْبَغِی لَنَا أَنْ نَصْنَعَ فِیهِ قَالَ تَصُومُهُ یَا حَسَنُ وَ تُکْثِرُ الصَّلَاهَ فِیهِ عَلَی مُحَمَّدٍ وَ أَهْلِ بَیْتِهِ وَ تَتَبَرَّأُ إِلَی اللَّهِ مِمَّنْ ظَلَمَهُمْ وَ جَحَدَ حَقَّهُمْ فَإِنَّ الْأَنْبِیَاءَ ع کَانَتْ تَأْمُرُ الْأَوْصِیَاءَ بِالْیَوْمِ الَّذِی کَانَ یُقَامُ فِیهِ الْوَصِیُّ أَنْ یُتَّخَذَ عِیداً قَالَ قُلْتُ مَا لِمَنْ صَامَهُ مِنَّا قَالَ صِیَامُ سِتِّینَ شَهْراً وَ لَا تَدَعْ صِیَامَ یَوْمِ سَبْعَهٍ وَ عِشْرِینَ مِنْ رَجَبٍ فَإِنَّهُ هُوَ الْیَوْمُ الَّذِی أُنْزِلَتْ فِیهِ النُّبُوَّهُ عَلَی مُحَمَّدٍ ص وَ ثَوَابُهُ مِثْلُ سِتِّینَ شَهْراً لَکُمْ.


1. My father (rah) said: it was narrated to us by Sa’d b. Abdillah who said it was narrated to us by Ibrahim b. Hashim from al-Qasim b. Yahya from his grandfather al-Hassan b. Rashid from Abi Abdillah (a.s.) who said: “Observe fast on this day and recite Durood on Muhammad (s.a.w.s.) and his progeny in excess. Also keep away from those people who troubled them and denied their rights. Prophets used to order to observe the day of appointment of their successor as Eid.” He asked, “What is the reward of a person fasting on this day?” Imam (a.s.) replied, “He would get the reward of fasting for sixty months. Similarly don’t leave the fast on 27th Rajab for the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) was appointed as prophet on this day and its reward is also equal to the fasts of sixty months.”




حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْحَسَنِ قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْحَسَنِ الصَّفَّارُ قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ عِیسَی عَنْ عَلِیِّ بْنِ سُلَیْمَانَ بْنِ یُوسُفَ الْبَزَّازِ عَنِ الْقَاسِمِ بْنِ یَحْیَی عَنْ جَدِّهِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ رَاشِدٍ قَالَ: قِیلَ لِأَبِی عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع لِلْمُؤْمِنِینَ مِنَ الْأَعْیَادِ غَیْرُ الْعِیدَیْنِ وَ الْجُمُعَهِ قَالَ نَعَمْ لَهُمْ مَا هُوَ أَعْظَمُ مِنْ هَذَا یَوْمٌ أُقِیمَ أَمِیرُ الْمُؤْمِنِینَ ع فَعَقَدَ لَهُ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ص الْوَلَایَهَ فِی أَعْنَاقِ الرِّجَالِ وَ النِّسَاءِ- بِغَدِیرِ خُمٍّ فَقُلْتُ وَ أَیُّ یَوْمٍ ذَاکَ قَالَ الْأَیَّامُ تَخْتَلِفُ ثُمَّ قَالَ یَوْمُ ثَمَانِیَهَ عَشَرَ مِنْ ذِی الْحِجَّهِ قَالَ ثُمَّ قَالَ وَ الْعَمَلُ فِیهِ یَعْدِلُ الْعَمَلَ فِی ثَمَانِینَ شَهْراً وَ یَنْبَغِی أَنْ یُکْثَرَ فِیهِ ذِکْرُ اللَّهِ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ وَ الصَّلَاهُ عَلَی النَّبِیِّ ص وَ یُوَسِّعَ الرَّجُلُ فِیهِ عَلَی عِیَالِهِ.


2. It was narrated to us by Muhammad b. al-Hassan who said it was narrated to us by Muhammad b. al-Hassan al-Saffar who said it was narrated to us by Muhammad b. Isa from Ali b. Sulayman b. Yusif al-Bazaz from al-Qasim b. Yahya from his grandfather al-Hassan b. Rashid who said: The narrator asked Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.), “Is there any other Eid for Muslims except the two Eids and Friday?” Imam (a.s.) replied, “Yes, here is an Eid greater than them; the day when Amirul Momineen (a.s.) was appointed as caliph and the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) had made his love compulsory on believing men and women at Ghadeer-e- Khum. A good deed performed on this day is equal to the deeds of eighty months. Muslims should remember Allah in excess on this day and recite Durood and Salaam on the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) many times and give more for the expenses of his family members.”




حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْحَسَنِ قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ أَبِی الْقَاسِمِ قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ عَلِیٍّ الْکُوفِیُّ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ سِنَانٍ عَنِ الْمُفَضَّلِ بْنِ عُمَرَ عَنْ أَبِی عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع قَالَ: صَوْمُ یَوْمِ غَدِیرِ خُمٍّ کَفَّارَهُ سِتِّینَ سَنَهً.


3. It was narrated to us by Muhammad b. al-Hassan who said it was narrated to us by Muhammad b. Abi al-Qasim who said it was narrated to us by Muhammad b. Ali al-Kufi from Muhammad b.
