1ـ عِدَّةٌ مِنْ أَصْحَابِنَا عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ أَبِي دَاوُدَ عَنْ عَبْدِ الله بْنِ أَبَانٍ قَالَ دَخَلْنَا عَلَى أَبِي عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيْهِ الْسَّلام) فَسَأَلَنَا أَ فِيكُمْ أَحَدٌ عِنْدَهُ عِلْمُ عَمِّي زَيْدِ بْنِ عَلِيٍّ فَقَالَ رَجُلٌ مِنَ الْقَوْمِ أَنَا عِنْدِي عِلْمٌ مِنْ عِلْمِ عَمِّكَ كُنَّا عِنْدَهُ ذَاتَ لَيْلَةٍ فِي دَارِ مُعَاوِيَةَ بْنِ إِسْحَاقَ الأنْصَارِيِّ إِذْ قَالَ انْطَلِقُوا بِنَا نُصَلِّي فِي مَسْجِدِ السَّهْلَةِ فَقَالَ أَبُو عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيْهِ الْسَّلام) وَفَعَلَ فَقَالَ لاَ جَاءَهُ أَمْرٌ فَشَغَلَهُ عَنِ الذَّهَابِ فَقَالَ أَمَا وَالله لَوْ أَعَاذَ الله بِهِ حَوْلاً لأَعَاذَهُ أَ مَا عَلِمْتَ أَنَّهُ مَوْضِعُ بَيْتِ إِدْرِيسَ النَّبِيِّ (عَلَيْهِ الْسَّلام) وَالَّذِي كَانَ يَخِيطُ فِيهِ وَمِنْهُ سَارَ إِبْرَاهِيمُ (عَلَيْهِ الْسَّلام) إِلَى الْيَمَنِ بِالْعَمَالِقَةِ وَمِنْهُ سَارَ دَاوُدُ إِلَى جَالُوتَ وَإِنَّ فِيهِ لَصَخْرَةً خَضْرَاءَ فِيهَا مِثَالُ كُلِّ نَبِيٍّ وَمِنْ تَحْتِ تِلْكَ الصَّخْرَةِ أُخِذَتْ طِينَةُ كُلِّ نَبِيٍّ وَإِنَّهُ لَمُنَاخُ الرَّاكِبِ قِيلَ وَمَنِ الرَّاكِبُ قَالَ الْخَضِرُ (عَلَيْهِ الْسَّلام).


1. A number of our people have narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from Ahmad ibn abu Dawud from ‘Abd Allah ibn Aban who has said the following: “Once, we visited abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, and he asked us, ‘Does anyone of you have anything of the knowledge of my uncle, Zayd ibn Ali?’ A man from the group said, ‘I have something of the knowledge of your uncle. Once, we were in the presence of Imam one night in the house of Mu‘awiyah ibn Ishaq al-Ansariy when he said, “Allow us to visit al-Sahlah Masjid to perform Salah (prayer).’” Abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, then asked, ‘Did he do so?’ He (the man) replied, ‘Something came up that prevented him from visiting al-Sahlah Masjid.’ The Imam then said, ‘By Allah, had he sought refuge with Allah therein for a year he would have given him such refuge. You should take notice that it is the house of prophet Idris. Therein he did his sewing works. From this place Ibrahim started his journey to Yemen, where al-‘Amaliqah people has settled down. Dawud began his move against Jalut (Goliath) from this place. In it, there is the green stone on which every prophet’s picture exists. From under this stone the clay of every prophet was taken and it is the place where the rider disembarks for rest.’ It was asked, ‘Who is the rider?’ The Imam replied, ‘He is al- Khadir.’”

2ـ مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ يَحْيَى عَنْ عَلِيِّ بْنِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ عَلِيٍّ عَنْ عُثْمَانَ عَنْ صَالِحِ بْنِ أَبِي الأسْوَدِ قَالَ قَالَ أَبُو عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيْهِ الْسَّلام) وَذَكَرَ مَسْجِدَ السَّهْلَةِ فَقَالَ أَمَا إِنَّهُ مَنْزِلُ صَاحِبِنَا إِذَا قَامَ بِأَهْلِهِ.


2. Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from Ali ibn al-Hassan ibn Ali from ‘Uthman from Salih ibn abu al-Aswad who has said the following: “Abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, when al-Sahlah Masjid was mentioned, said, ‘It is the dwelling of our companion when he rises (with Divine Authority).”’

3ـ عَنْهُ عَنْ عَمْرِو بْنِ عُثْمَانَ عَنْ حُسَيْنِ بْنِ بَكْرٍ عَنْ عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَنِ بْنِ سَعِيدٍ الْخَزَّازِ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيْهِ الْسَّلام) قَالَ قَالَ بِالْكُوفَةِ مَسْجِدٌ يُقَالُ لَهُ مَسْجِدُ السَّهْلَةِ لَوْ أَنَّ عَمِّي زَيْداً أَتَاهُ فَصَلَّى فِيهِ وَاسْتَجَارَ الله لأَجَارَهُ عِشْرِينَ سَنَةً فِيهِ مُنَاخُ الرَّاكِبِ وَبَيْتُ إِدْرِيسَ النَّبِيِّ (عَلَيْهِ الْسَّلام) وَمَا أَتَاهُ مَكْرُوبٌ قَطُّ فَصَلَّى فِيهِ بَيْنَ الْعِشَاءَيْنِ وَدَعَا الله إِلاَّ فَرَّجَ الله كُرْبَتَهُ. وَرُوِيَ أَنَّ مَسْجِدَ السَّهْلَةِ حَدُّهُ إِلَى الرَّوْحَاءِ.


3. It is a narration from him (narrator of previous Hadith) by ‘Amr ibn ‘Uthman from Hassan ibn Bakr from ‘Abd al-Rahman ibn Sa‘id al-Khazzaz who has said the following: “Abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said that in al-Kufah there is a Masjid called al-Sahlah Masjid. ‘Had my uncle, Zayd, visited it to perform Salah (prayer) and asked Allah to grant him refuge, He would have granted him refuge for twenty years. In it is the place where the rider disembarks for rest and the house of prophet Idris. There has never been anyone suffering hardships who visited this, performed two Rak‘at Salah (prayer) between the two Salah (prayer) after sunset and appealed to Allah for help whose wishes Allah did not make to come true and remove his hardships.’” “It is narrated that the limits of al-Sahlah Masjid extend up to al-Rawha.”
