1- عَلِيُّ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ صَالِحِ بْنِ أَبِي حَمَّادٍ عَنْ هَارُونَ بْنِ مُسْلِمٍ عَنْ بُرَيْدِ بْنِ مُعَاوِيَةَ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللهِ (عَلَيْهِ السَّلام) قَالَ أَتَى النَّبِيَّ (صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِه) رَجُلٌ فَقَالَ يَا رَسُولَ اللهِ إِنِّي أَحْمِلُ أَعْظَمَ مَا يَحْمِلُ الرِّجَالُ فَهَلْ يَصْلُحُ لِي أَنْ آتِيَ بَعْضَ مَا لِي مِنَ الْبَهَائِمِ نَاقَةً أَوْ حِمَارَةً فَإِنَّ النِّسَاءَ لا يَقْوَيْنَ عَلَى مَا عِنْدِي فَقَالَ رَسُولُ اللهِ (صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِه) إِنَّ اللهَ تَبَارَكَ وَتَعَالَى لَمْ يَخْلُقْكَ حَتَّى خَلَقَ لَكَ مَا يَحْتَمِلُكَ مِنْ شَكْلِكَ فَانْصَرَفَ الرَّجُلُ وَلَمْ يَلْبَثْ أَنْ عَادَ إِلَى رَسُولِ اللهِ (صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِه) فَقَالَ لَهُ مِثْلَ مَقَالَتِهِ فِي أَوَّلِ مَرَّةٍ فَقَالَ لَهُ رَسُولُ اللهِ (صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِه) فَأَيْنَ أَنْتَ مِنَ السَّوْدَاءِ العَنَطْنَطَةِ قَالَ فَانْصَرَفَ الرَّجُلُ فَلَمْ يَلْبَثْ أَنْ عَادَ فَقَالَ يَا رَسُولَ اللهِ أَشْهَدُ أَنَّكَ رَسُولُ اللهِ حَقّاً إِنِّي طَلَبْتُ مَا أَمَرْتَنِي بِهِ فَوَقَعْتُ عَلَى شَكْلِي مِمَّا يَحْتَمِلُنِي وَقَدْ أَقْنَعَنِي ذَلِكَ.


1. Ali ibn Muhammad has narrated from Salih ibn abu Hammad from Harun ibn Muslim from Burayd ibn Mu‘awiyah who has said the following: “Abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said that once a man came to the Holy Prophet, O Allah, grant compensation to Muhammad and his family worthy of their services to Your cause, and said, ‘O Messenger of Allah, I carry the largest thing that man carry, if I can make use of the animals that I own, like a donkey or she-camel, because women cannot bear what I have.’ The Messenger of Allah said, ‘Allah has not created your thing without creating what can match your kind.’ The man went and very shortly came back to the Messenger of Allah and repeated what he had said before. The Messenger of Allah, O Allah, grant compensation to Muhammad and his family worthy of their services to Your cause, said, ‘Why do you not find the black woman with a tall neck and healthy body?’ He went and very shortly came back and said, ‘I testify that you are the Messenger of Allah in all truth. I searched for what you commanded me to do and found her to be of my kind and match and I am satisfied.’”
