أبي - رحمه الله - قال: حدثنا سعد بن عبد الله، عن أحمد بن محمد، عن أبيه، عن حماد بن عيسى، عن أبان بن عثمان، عمن أخبره، قال: قلت لأبي جعفر عليه السلام: لم سمي الحج؟ قال: الحج الفلاح، يقال: حج فلان أي أفلح.

1. My father, may Allah grant him mercy, said: We were told by Sa’d bin Abdullah, from Ahmad bin Muhammed, from his father, from Hammad bin Isa, from Aban bin Uthman, from the one who informed him, that he said: I said to Abu Ja’far, peace be upon him: Why was it named a pilgrimage? He said: Pilgrimage is success. It is said: Such-a-person performed the pilgrimage, meaning that he achieved success.
