Back to book

عِدَّةٌ مِنْ أَصْحَابِنَا عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ عِيسَى أَوْ غَيْرِهِ عَنْ قُتَيْبَةَ بْنِ مِهْرَانَ عَنْ حَمَّادِ بْنِ زَكَرِيَّا عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ( عليه السلام ) قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ( صلى الله عليه وآله ) عَلَيْكُمْ بِالْكَرَفْسِ فَإِنَّهُ طَعَامُ إِلْيَاسَ وَ الْيَسَعِ وَ يُوشَعَ بْنِ نُونٍ.


1. A number of our people have narrated from Ahmad ibn abu ‘Abd Allah from Muhammad ibn ‘Isa or others from Qutaybah ibn Mehran from Hammad ibn Zakariya who has said the following: “Abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said that the Messenger of Allah, O Allah, grant compensation to Muhammad and his family worthy of their services to Your cause, has said, ‘You must eat celery because it is the food of Elias, al-Yasa‘ and Usha‘ ibn Nun (names of Israelite prophets).”’

عَنْهُ عَنْ نُوحِ بْنِ شُعَيْبٍ النَّيْسَابُورِيِّ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ عَلِيِّ بْنِ يَقْطِينٍ فِيمَا أَعْلَمُ عَنْ نَادِرٍ الْخَادِمِ قَالَ ذَكَرَ أَبُو الْحَسَنِ ( عليه السلام ) الْكَرَفْسَ فَقَالَ أَنْتُمْ تَشْتَهُونَهُ وَ لَيْسَ مِنْ دَابَّةٍ إِلَّا وَ هِيَ تَحْتَكُّ بِهِ .


2. It is narrated from the narrator of the previous Hadith Nuh ibn Shu’ayb al-Naysaburiy from Muhammad ibn al-Hassan ibn Ali Yaqtin as I know from Nadir al-Khadim who has said the following: “Abu al-Hassan, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, once mentioned celery and said, ‘You desire to eat celery and there is no living thing that does not rub against it.’” (It can be for or against it depending on if, they rub for cure or to leave poison).
