ابْنُ مَحْبُوبٍ عَنْ أَبِي جَعْفَرٍ الْأَحْوَلِ عَنْ سَلَّامِ بْنِ الْمُسْتَنِيرِ عَنْ أَبِي جَعْفَرٍ (عليه السلام) قَالَ إِنَّ اللَّهَ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ خَلَقَ الْجَنَّةَ قَبْلَ أَنْ يَخْلُقَ النَّارَ وَ خَلَقَ الطَّاعَةَ قَبْلَ أَنْ يَخْلُقَ الْمَعْصِيَةَ وَ خَلَقَ الرَّحْمَةَ قَبْلَ الْغَضَبِ وَ خَلَقَ الْخَيْرَ قَبْلَ الشَّرِّ وَ خَلَقَ الْأَرْضَ قَبْلَ السَّمَاءِ وَ خَلَقَ الْحَيَاةَ قَبْلَ الْمَوْتِ وَ خَلَقَ الشَّمْسَ قَبْلَ الْقَمَرِ وَ خَلَقَ النُّورَ قَبْلَ الظُّلْمَةِ.


116. Ibn Mahboub, from Abu Ja’far Al-Howl, from Sallaam Bin Al-Mustaneer, who has narrated the following: Abu Ja’far (asws) said: ‘Allah (azwj) Created the Paradise before He (azwj) Created the Fire, and Created the obedience before He (azwj) Created the disobedience, and Created the Mercy before the Anger, and Created the good before the evil, and Created the earth before the sky, and Created the life before the death, and Created the sun before the moon, and Created the ‘النُّورَ’ (the Divine Light) before the darkness’.
