مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ يَحْيَى عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ عَلِيِّ بْنِ الْحَكَمِ وَ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ عَلِيِّ بْنِ فَضَّالٍ عَنْ يُونُسَ بْنِ يَعْقُوبَ قَالَ قَالَ أَبُو عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ( عليه السلام ) مَا يَأْتِينَا مِنْ نَاحِيَتِكُمْ شَيْ‏ءٌ أَحَبُّ إِلَيَّ مِنَ الْأَرُزِّ وَ الْبَنَفْسَجِ إِنِّي اشْتَكَيْتُ وَجَعِي ذَلِكَ الشَّدِيدَ فَأُلْهِمْتُ أَكْلَ الْأَرُزِّ فَأَمَرْتُ بِهِ فَغُسِلَ وَ جُفِّفَ ثُمَّ قُلِيَ وَ طُحِنَ فَجُعِلَ لِي مِنْهُ سَفُوفٌ بِزَيْتٍ وَ طَبِيخٌ أَتَحَسَّاهُ فَأَذْهَبَ اللَّهُ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ عَنِّي بِذَلِكَ الْوَجَعَ.


1. Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from Ali ibn al-Hakam from and al-Hassan ibn Ali ibn Faddal from Yunus ibn Ya’qub who has said the following: “Abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said, ’From your area no other thing comes more desirable to me than rice and viola. I had intense pain and I was inspired to eat rice. I ordered to wash it, dry it, and pick up to grind it, then in a powder form with oil and a mixture, I drank it. Allah, most Majestic, most Glorious, removed with it that pain.”’

عَلِيُّ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنْ إِسْمَاعِيلَ بْنِ مَرَّارٍ وَ غَيْرِهِ عَنْ يُونُسَ عَنْ هِشَامِ بْنِ الْحَكَمِ عَنْ زُرَارَةَ قَالَ رَأَيْتُ دَايَةَ أَبِي الْحَسَنِ مُوسَى ( عليه السلام ) تُلْقِمُهُ الْأَرُزَّ وَ تَضْرِبُهُ عَلَيْهِ فَغَمَّنِي مَا رَأَيْتُهُ فَدَخَلْتُ عَلَى أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ( عليه السلام ) فَقَالَ لِي أَحْسَبُكَ غَمَّكَ مَا رَأَيْتَ مِنْ دَايَةِ أَبِي الْحَسَنِ مُوسَى قُلْتُ لَهُ نَعَمْ جُعِلْتُ فِدَاكَفَقَالَ لِي نِعْمَ الطَّعَامُ الْأَرُزُّ يُوَسِّعُ الْأَمْعَاءَ وَ يَقْطَعُ الْبَوَاسِيرَ وَ إِنَّا لَنَغْبِطُ أَهْلَ الْعِرَاقِ بِأَكْلِهِمُ الْأَرُزَّ وَ الْبُسْرَ فَإِنَّهُمَا يُوَسِّعَانِ الْأَمْعَاءَ وَ يَقْطَعَانِ الْبَوَاسِيرَ .


2. Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from ’Isma’il ibn Marrar and others from Yunus from Hisham ibn al-Hakam from Zurarah who has said the following: “I once saw the nurse of abu al-Hassan, Musa, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, feed him rice with morsels and threw it on him. It made me upset and I went to see abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, who said to me, ‘I think what you have seen from the nurse of abu al-Hassan, Musa, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has made you upset.’ I replied, ‘Yes, I pray to Allah to keep my soul in service for your cause.’ He (the Imam) said, ‘Yes, food from rice expands the intestine and cuts down hemorrhoids. We deem people of Iraq as fortunate for their eating rice and fresh dates because they expand the intestine and cut down hemorrhoids.’”

3. A number of our people have narrated from Ahmad ibn abu ‘Abd Allah from abu Sulayman al-Hadhddha’ from Muhammad ibn al- Fayd who has said the following: “I once was with abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, that a man came to him (the Imam) and said, ‘My daughter has become weak and she is pregnant.’ He (the Imam) said, ‘What prevents you from feeding her rice with fat? Take four pieces of stone or five and place them near the fire. Cook the rice in a pot until it is cooked. Take the fresh fat of a kidney. When rice is cooked then place the fat in a pot with the stones, then cover it with another pot and stir it fairly well. Fix the pots so that no steam comes out. When the fat melts; then place it in the rice, then she can eat it (ingest it).”’
