Maʿānī al-ʾAkhbār > The meaning of the Stoned
Hadith #1

حدثنا محمد بن أحمد الشيباني - رضي الله عنه - قال: حدثنا محمد بن أبي عبد الله الكوفي. قال: حدثنا سهل بن زياد، عن عبد العظيم بن عبد الله الحسني، قال: سمعت أبا الحسن علي بن محمد العسكري عليهم السلام يقول: معنى الرجيم أنه مرجوم باللعن، مطرود من مواضع الخير، لا يذكره مؤمن إلا لعنه، وأن في علم الله السابق أنه إذا خرج القائم عليه السلام لا يبقى مؤمن في زمانه إلا رجمه بالحجارة كما كان قبل ذلك مرجوما باللعن.

1. We were told by Muhammed bin Ahmad al-Shaybani, may Allah be pleased with him, that he said: We were told by Muhammed bin Abi Abdillah al-Kufi, that he said: We were told by Sahl bin Ziyad, from Abdul-Adhim bin Abdullah al-Hasani, that he said: I heard Abu’l-Hasan, Ali bin Muhammed al-Askari, peace be upon him, say: The meaning of the Stoned is that he is Stoned with Curses, expelled from the places of goodness, not remembered by a believer except that he curses him, and that there is in the Knowledge of Allah that precedes events that when the Riser, peace be upon him, comes out, there will not remain a believer in his age except that he will stone him with stones, like how he was, before that, stoned with curses.
