Maʿānī al-ʾAkhbār > The meaning of Three Sanctities
Hadith #1

حدثنا أبي - رضي الله عنه - قال: حدثنا عبد الله بن جعفر الحميري، قال: حدثني محمد بن عيسى بن عبيد اليقطيني، قال: حدثني يونس بن عبد الرحمن، عن عبد الله ابن سنان عن الصادق جعفر بن محمد عليهما السلام أنه قال: إن لله عز وجل حرمات ثلاث ليس مثلهن شئ: كتابه وهو حكمته ونوره، وبيته الذي جعله قبلة للناس لا يقبل من أحد توجها إلى غيره، وعترة نبيكم صلى الله عليه وآله.

1. We were told by my father, may Allah be pleased with him, that he said: We were told by Abdullah bin Ja’far al-Himyari, that he said: I was told by Muhammed bin Isa bin Ubaid al-Yaqteeni, that he said: I was told by Yunus bin Abdul-Rahman, from Abdullah ibn Sinan, from al-Sadiq, Ja’far bin Muhammed, peace be upon them both, that he said: Indeed, for Allah, Exalted and Glorious is He, are three sanctities which there is nothing like: His Book, which is His Wisdom and Light; His House that He made a destination for the people, by which He accepts no orientation from anyone except (that it is performed) towards it; and the Family of your Prophet, Allah’s blessings be upon him and his Family.
