عَلِيُّ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ وَ عِدَّةٌ مِنْ أَصْحَابِنَا عَنْ سَهْلِ بْنِ زِيَادٍ جَمِيعاً عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ عِيسَى عَنْ يُونُسَ عَنْ أَبِي الصَّبَّاحِ الْكِنَانِيِّ عَنِ الْأَصْبَغِ بْنِ نُبَاتَةَ قَالَ قَالَ أَمِيرُ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ (عليه السلام) إِنَّ لِلشَّمْسِ ثَلَاثَمِائَةٍ وَ سِتِّينَ بُرْجاً كُلُّ بُرْجٍ مِنْهَا مِثْلُ جَزِيرَةٍ مِنْ جَزَائِرِ الْعَرَبِ فَتَنْزِلُ كُلَّ يَوْمٍ عَلَى بُرْجٍ مِنْهَا فَإِذَا غَابَتِ انْتَهَتْ إِلَى حَدِّ بُطْنَانِ الْعَرْشِ فَلَمْ تَزَلْ سَاجِدَةً إِلَى الْغَدِ ثُمَّ تُرَدُّ إِلَى مَوْضِعِ مَطْلَعِهَا وَ مَعَهَا مَلَكَانِ يَهْتِفَانِ مَعَهَا وَ إِنَّ وَجْهَهَا لِأَهْلِ السَّمَاءِ وَ قَفَاهَا لِأَهْلِ الْأَرْضِ وَ لَوْ كَانَ وَجْهُهَا لِأَهْلِ الْأَرْضِ لَاحْتَرَقَتِ الْأَرْضُ وَ مَنْ عَلَيْهَا مِنْ شِدَّةِ حَرِّهَا وَ مَعْنَى سُجُودِهَا مَا قَالَ سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى أَ لَمْ تَرَ أَنَّ اللَّهَ يَسْجُدُ لَهُ مَنْ فِي السَّماواتِ وَ مَنْ فِي الْأَرْضِ وَ الشَّمْسُ وَ الْقَمَرُ وَ النُّجُومُ وَ الْجِبالُ وَ الشَّجَرُ وَ الدَّوَابُّ وَ كَثِيرٌ مِنَ النَّاسِ.


148. Ali Bin Ibrahim, and a number of our companions, from Sahl Bin ziyad altogether, from Muhammad Bin Isa, from Yunus, from Abu Al-Sabbah Al-Kanany, from Al-Asbagh Bin Nabata who said: Amir-ul-Momineen (a.s.) said: ‘For the sun there are three hundred constellations. Each of the constellations from these is like an island from the islands of Arabia. So it descends upon a constellation from these each day. So when it disappears, it ends up to the limits beneath the Throne. It does not stop prostrating until the next day. Then it returns to the place of its rising, and with it are two Angels who hail with it and turn its face towards the people of the sky reversing it from the people of the earth. And had it faced the people of the earth, it would have burnt down the earth and the ones upon it due to the intensity of its heat. And the meaning of its prostration is what the Glorious and the High has Said: “[22:18] Do you not see that to Allah bow down in worship all things that are in the heavens and on earth, the sun, the moon, the stars; the hills, the trees, the animals; and a great number among mankind?”
