أَبِی ره قَالَ حَدَّثَنِی أَحْمَدُ بْنُ إِدْرِیسَ قَالَ حَدَّثَنِی مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ أَحْمَدَ قَالَ حَدَّثَنِی إِسْحَاقُ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِیمَ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ عَلِیٍّ عَنْ یَعْقُوبَ بْنِ یَزِیدَ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ سَعِیدٍ عَنْ عَبْدِ الْمُؤْمِنِ الْأَنْصَارِیِّ قَالَ سَمِعْتُ أَبَا عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع یَقُولُ مَا افْتَقَرَتْ کَفٌّ تَخَتَّمَتْ بِالْفَیْرُوزَجِ.


1. It is narrated that Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.) said, “The hand having a turquoise ring will never be needy.”




وَ بِهَذَا الْإِسْنَادِ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ أَحْمَدَ قَالَ حَدَّثَنِی أَبُو یَعْقُوبَ یُوسُفُ بْنُ السُّخْتِ عَنِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ سَهْلٍ الْبَصْرِیِّ عَنْ عَلِیِّ بْنِ مَهْزِیَارَ قَالَ: دَخَلْتُ عَلَی أَبِی الْحَسَنِ مُوسَی بْنِ جَعْفَرٍ ع فَرَأَیْتُ فِی یَدِهِ خَاتَماً فَصُّهُ فَیْرُوزَجٌ نَقْشُهُ لِلَّهِ الْمُلْکُ فَأَدَمْتُ النَّظَرَ إِلَیْهِ فَقَالَ مَا لَکَ تَنْظُرُ فِیهِ هَذَا حَجَرٌ أَهْدَاهُ جَبْرَئِیلُ لِرَسُولِ اللَّهِ ص مِنَ الْجَنَّهِ فَوَهَبَهُ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ص لِعَلِیٍّ ع أَ تَدْرِی مَا اسْمُهُ قَالَ قُلْتُ فَیْرُوزَجٌ قَالَ هَذَا اسْمُهُ بِالْفَارِسِیَّهِ أَ تَعْرِفُ اسْمَهُ بِالْعَرَبِیَّهِ قَالَ قُلْتُ لَا قَالَ هُوَ الظَّفَرُ.


2. The narrator went to visit Imam Musa Kazim (a.s.) and saw a turquoise ring in his hand inscribed with: Allaahul Malik. He went on seeing that ring continuously. Imam (a.s.) asked, “Why are you looking at this stone like this? Jibraeel had brought this stone for the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) from Paradise as a gift. It was given to Ali (a.s.) by him. Do you know what its name is?” He replied, “It is turquoise.” Imam said, “That is the Persian name. Do you know its name in Arabic?” “No,” he replied. Imam said, “It is Zafar.”
