1ـ عَلِيُّ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ مَحْبُوبٍ عَنِ ابْنِ سِنَانٍ قَالَ سَأَلْتُ أَبَا عَبْدِ الله (عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم) عَنْ قَوْلِ الله عَزَّ وَجَلَّ إِنَّ أَوَّلَ بَيْتٍ وُضِعَ لِلنَّاسِ لَلَّذِي بِبَكَّةَ مُبارَكاً وَهُدىً لِلْعالَمِينَ فِيهِ آياتٌ بَيِّناتٌ مَا هَذِهِ الآيَاتُ الْبَيِّنَاتُ قَالَ مَقَامُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ حَيْثُ قَامَ عَلَى الْحَجَرِ فَأَثَّرَتْ فِيهِ قَدَمَاهُ وَالْحَجَرُ الأَسْوَدُ وَمَنْزِلُ إِسْمَاعِيلَ ع.


1. Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from al-Hassan ibn Mahbub from ibn Sinan who has said the following: “I once asked abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, about the words of Allah, the Most Majestic, the Most Glorious, ‘The first ever house built for people is that which is in Bakkah, the blessed and a guide for the worlds. In it there are signs which are very clear.’ (3:96-97) I asked, ‘What are these signs which are very clear?’ He (the Imam) said, ‘One of them is the site where Ibrahim stood on the rock. His foot left a clear mark of it. Another sign is the Black Stone, and yet one more sign is the house of Isma‘il.’”

2ـ مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ يَحْيَى عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنِ ابْنِ فَضَّالٍ عَنِ ابْنِ بُكَيْرٍ عَنْ زُرَارَةَ قَالَ قُلْتُ لأَبِي جَعْفَرٍ (عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم) قَدْ أَدْرَكْتَ الْحُسَيْنَ (عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم) قَالَ نَعَمْ أَذْكُرُ وَأَنَا مَعَهُ فِي الْمَسْجِدِ الْحَرَامِ وَقَدْ دَخَلَ فِيهِ السَّيْلُ وَالنَّاسُ يَقُومُونَ عَلَى الْمَقَامِ يَخْرُجُ الْخَارِجُ يَقُولُ قَدْ ذَهَبَ بِهِ السَّيْلُ وَيَخْرُجُ مِنْهُ الْخَارِجُ فَيَقُولُ هُوَ مَكَانَهُ قَالَ فَقَالَ لِي يَا فُلانُ مَا صَنَعَ هَؤُلاءِ فَقُلْتُ أَصْلَحَكَ الله يَخَافُونَ أَنْ يَكُونَ السَّيْلُ قَدْ ذَهَبَ بِالْمَقَامِ فَقَالَ نَادِ أَنَّ الله تَعَالَى قَدْ جَعَلَهُ عَلَماً لَمْ يَكُنْ لِيَذْهَبَ بِهِ فَاسْتَقِرُّوا وَكَانَ مَوْضِعُ الْمَقَامِ الَّذِي وَضَعَهُ إِبْرَاهِيمُ (عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم) عِنْدَ جِدَارِ الْبَيْتِ فَلَمْ يَزَلْ هُنَاكَ حَتَّى حَوَّلَهُ أَهْلُ الْجَاهِلِيَّةِ إِلَى الْمَكَانِ الَّذِي هُوَ فِيهِ الْيَوْمَ فَلَمَّا فَتَحَ النَّبِيُّ (صلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِه) مَكَّةَ رَدَّهُ إِلَى الْمَوْضِعِ الَّذِي وَضَعَهُ إِبْرَاهِيمُ (عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم) فَلَمْ يَزَلْ هُنَاكَ إِلَى أَنْ وَلِيَ عُمَرُ بْنُ الْخَطَّابِ فَسَأَلَ النَّاسَ مَنْ مِنْكُمْ يَعْرِفُ الْمَكَانَ الَّذِي كَانَ فِيهِ الْمَقَامُ فَقَالَ رَجُلٌ أَنَا قَدْ كُنْتُ أَخَذْتُ مِقْدَارَهُ بِنِسْعٍ فَهُوَ عِنْدِي فَقَالَ ائْتِنِي بِهِ فَأَتَاهُ بِهِ فَقَاسَهُ ثُمَّ رَدَّهُ إِلَى ذَلِكَ الْمَكَانِ.


2. Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad, from ibn Faddal from ibn Bukayr from Zurarah who has said the following: “I once asked abu Ja‘far, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, ‘Did you meet al-Husayn, ‘Alayhi al-Salam ?’ He (the Imam) replied, ‘Yes, I remember when I was with him in the Sacred Masjid while the flood had entered it. People stood on the station of Ibrahim and those coming out said, “The flood has moved the station away,” and others when coming out said, “The station is in place.’” He (the Imam) said that he (al-Husayn) asked me, “O so and so, what do they say?” I replied, “I pray to Allah to keep you well. They are afraid and say, ‘The flood may have taken away the ‘station’” He (Imam al-Husayn) said, “Announce this, ‘Whatever Allah, most High, has made a banner (a light house), He does not take it away. So you must calm down.’” The place of the station as Ibrahim had designated was near the wall of the House, and it remained there until people of the time of ignorance moved it to the place where it is today. When the Holy Prophet liberated Makkah, he returned it to its original place where Ibrahim had placed it. It remained there until ‘Umar ibn al-Khattab took charge. He asked people, “Who among you knows the place of the station where it was before?” A man said, “I know it. I had taken its measurement on a belt and I have kept it with me.” He (‘Umar) said, “Bring it for me.” He brought it to him and he measured it, and then returned it to that place.’”
