Allah, most Majestic, most Glorious, sent him revelation that said, ‘This is your own act. It was you who prayed against them.’ Nuh said, ‘My Lord, I ask You to forgive me and I turn to You (for kindness).’ Allah, most Majestic, most Glorious, sent him revelation to eat black grapes.’”

I then asked a man among them, ‘Who are these people?’ He replied, ‘They are Ja‘far ibn Muhammad, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, and ‘Abd Allah ibn al-Hassan who are summoned by al-Mansur.’ Afterward I asked about them and it was said that they are in al-Hirah.’ The next morning I went to offer them greeting of peace. When I was there, I saw baskets before them with fresh dates given to them as gift from al-Kufah. The baskets were opened before them. Ja‘far ibn Muhammad, ‘Alayhim al-Salam, extended his hand and ate, then said to me, ‘Eat.’ He (the Imam) then said to ‘Abd Allah ibn al-Hassan, ‘O abu Muhammad, what do you say about these fine fresh dates?’ Ja‘far ibn Muhammad, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, then turned to me and said, ‘O people of al-Kufah, you have been given preference over other people in matters of food by three things: Your fish, al-Bunaniy, your grapes, this al- Raziqiy and your fresh dates, this al-Mushan.’”
