Maʿānī al-ʾAkhbār > The meaning of Tuba
Hadith #1

حدثنا المظفر بن جعفر بن المظفر العلوي - رضي الله عنه - قال: حدثنا جعفر بن محمد بن مسعود، عن أبيه محمد بن مسعود العياشي، عن جعفر بن أحمد عن العمركي البوفكي، عن الحسن بن علي بن فضال، عن مروان بن مسلم، عن أبي بصير قال: قال الصادق عليه السلام طوبى لمن تمسك بأمرنا في غيبة قائمنا فلم يزغ قلبه بعد الهداية. فقلت له: جعلت فداك وما طوبى؟ قال: شجرة في الجنة أصلها في دار علي بن أبي طالب عليه السلام وليس مؤمن إلا وفي داره غصن من أغصانها، وذلك قول الله عز وجل: " طوبى لهم وحسن مآب ".

1. We were told by Mudaffar bin Ja’far bin Mudaffar al-Alawi, may Allah be pleased with him, that he said: We were told by Ja’far bin Muhammed bin Mas’ud, from his father, Muhammed bin Mas’ud al-‘Ayyashi, from Ja’far bin Ahmad, from al-‘Amraki al-Bufaki, from Hasan bin Ali bin Faddal, from Marwan bin Muslim, from Abu Baseer, that he said: Al-Sadiq, peace be upon him, said: Tuba is for the one who adheres to our matters during the occultation of the one of us who Rises, by which his heart does not deviate after guidance. Then I said to him: May I be sacrificed for you, and what is Tuba? He said: A tree in Paradise whose origin is in the house of Ali bin Abi Talib, peace be upon him, and there is no believer except that in his house is a branch from its branches, and that is the saying of Allah, Exalted and Glorious is He: «Tuba is for them and a good place of return.» (13:29)
