مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ يَحْيَى عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنِ ابْنِ مَحْبُوبٍ عَنِ الْعَلَاءِ بْنِ رَزِينٍ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ مُسْلِمٍ وَ الْحَجَّالِ عَنِ الْعَلَاءِ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ مُسْلِمٍ قَالَ قَالَ لِي أَبُو جَعْفَرٍ (عليه السلام) كَانَ كُلُّ شَيْ‏ءٍ مَاءً وَ كَانَ عَرْشُهُ عَلَى الْمَاءِ فَأَمَرَ اللَّهُ عَزَّ ذِكْرُهُ الْمَاءَ فَاضْطَرَمَ نَاراً ثُمَّ أَمَرَ النَّارَ فَخَمَدَتْ فَارْتَفَعَ مِنْ خُمُودِهَا دُخَانٌ فَخَلَقَ اللَّهُ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ السَّمَاوَاتِ مِنْ ذَلِكَ الدُّخَانِ وَ خَلَقَ اللَّهُ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ الْأَرْضَ مِنَ الرَّمَادِ ثُمَّ اخْتَصَمَ الْمَاءُ وَ النَّارُ وَ الرِّيحُ فَقَالَ الْمَاءُ أَنَا جُنْدُ اللَّهِ الْأَكْبَرُ وَ قَالَتِ النَّارُ أَنَا جُنْدُ اللَّهِ الْأَكْبَرُ وَ قَالَتِ الرِّيحُ أَنَا جُنْدُ اللَّهِ الْأَكْبَرُ فَأَوْحَى اللَّهُ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ إِلَى الرِّيحِ أَنْتِ جُنْدِيِّ الْأَكْبَر.


142. Muhammad Bin Yahya, from Ahmad Bin Muhammad, from Ibn Mahboun from Al-A’ala Bin Razeyn, from Muhammad Bin Muslim and Al-Hajjaal from Al-A’ala, from Muhammad Bin Muslim who said: ‘Abu Ja’far (a.s.) said to me: ‘Everything used to be water, and His (azwj) Throne was upon the water. So Allah (azwj) Commanded the water so the fire was ignited. Then He (azwj) Commanded the fire, so it was extinguished and from its smoldering a smoke arose. So Allah (azwj) Mighty and Majestic Created the Heavens from that smoke, and Allah (azwj) Mighty and Majestic Created the earth from the ashes. Then the water, and the fire, and the wind contended. So the water said, ‘I am the great army of Allah (azwj)’, and the fire said, ‘I am the great army of Allah (azwj), and the wind said, ‘I am the great army of Allah (azwj)’. So Allah (azwj) Mighty and Majestic Revealed unto the wind: “You are My (azwj) Great army’.
