أَبُو عَلِيٍّ الْأَشْعَرِيُّ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ عَبْدِ الْجَبَّارِ عَنْ صَفْوَانَ عَنْ يَعْقُوبَ بْنِ شُعَيْبٍ قَالَ قَالَ لِي أَبُو عَبْدِ اللَّهِ (عليه السلام) مَنْ أَشَدُّ النَّاسِ عَلَيْكُمْ قَالَ قُلْتُ جُعِلْتُ فِدَاكَ كُلٌّ قَالَ أَ تَدْرِي مِمَّ ذَاكَ يَا يَعْقُوبُ قَالَ قُلْتُ لَا أَدْرِي جُعِلْتُ فِدَاكَ قَالَ إِنَّ إِبْلِيسَ دَعَاهُمْ فَأَجَابُوهُ وَ أَمَرَهُمْ فَأَطَاعُوهُ وَ دَعَاكُمْ فَلَمْ تُجِيبُوهُ وَ أَمَرَكُمْ فَلَمْ تُطِيعُوهُ فَأَغْرَى بِكُمُ النَّاسَ.


105. Abu Ali Al-Ashary, from Muhammad Bin Abdul Jabbaar, from Safwaan, from Yaqoub Bin Shuayb who said: Abu Abdullah (a.s.) said to me: ‘Who is the harshest of the people against you?’ I said, ‘May I be sacrificed for you (a.s.), all of them are’. He (a.s.) said: ‘Do you know why that is so, O Yaqoub?’ I said, ‘I do not know, may I be sacrificed for you (a.s.)’. He (a.s.) said: ‘It is Iblees (la) who called them, so they answered him (la), and ordered them, so they obeyed him (la), and he (la) called you, so you did not answer him (la), and he (la) ordered you, so you did not obey him (la), so he (la) beckons (instigates) the people against you’.
