مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ يَحْيَى عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنِ ابْنِ فَضَّالٍ عَنْ أَبِي إِسْمَاعِيلَ الصَّيْقَلِ عَنْ أَبِي يَحْيَى الرَّازِيِّ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ( عليه السلام ) قَالَ إِذَا وُلِدَ لَكُمُ الْمَوْلُودُ أَيَّ شَيْ‏ءٍ تَصْنَعُونَ بِهِ قُلْتُ لَا أَدْرِي مَا نَصْنَعُ بِهِ قَالَ خُذْ عَدَسَةَ جَاوَشِيرَ فَدُفْهُ بِمَاءٍ ثُمَّ قَطِّرْ فِي أَنْفِهِ فِي الْمَنْخِرِ الْأَيْمَنِ قَطْرَتَيْنِ وَ فِي الْأَيْسَرِ قَطْرَةً وَاحِدَةً وَ أَذِّنْ فِي أُذُنِهِ الْيُمْنَى وَ أَقِمْ فِي الْيُسْرَى تَفْعَلُ بِهِ ذَلِكَ قَبْلَ أَنْ تُقْطَعَ سُرَّتُهُ فَإِنَّهُ لَا يَفْزَعُ أَبَداً وَ لَا تُصِيبُهُ أُمُّ الصِّبْيَانِ .


1. Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from ibn Faddal from abu ’Isma‘il al-Sayqal from abu Yahya al- Raziy who has said the following: “Abu ‘ Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, once asked, ‘When a child is born what do you do for the child?’ I replied, ‘I do not know what we should do.’ He (the Imam) said, ‘Take Jawshir [Persian Arabicized word for cow milk] of the size of a lentil and warm it up with water then drop it in the nostrils of the child; two drops in the right and one drop in the left; say Adhan in the right ear and Iqamah in the left ear. You should do it before cutting off the umbilical cord. This protects the child against shock and seizure.’”
