أَبُو عَلِيٍّ الْأَشْعَرِيُّ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ عَبْدِ الْجَبَّارِ عَنْ صَفْوَانَ بْنِ يَحْيَى عَنِ ابْنِ مُسْكَانَ عَنْ أَبِي بَصِيرٍ عَنْ أَحَدِهِمَا (عليهما السلام) قَالَ سَأَلْتُهُ عَنْ قَوْلِ اللَّهِ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ وَ مَنْ أَظْلَمُ مِمَّنِ افْتَرى عَلَى اللَّهِ كَذِباً أَوْ قالَ أُوحِيَ إِلَيَّ وَ لَمْ يُوحَ إِلَيْهِ شَيْ‏ءٌ قَالَ نَزَلَتْ فِي ابْنِ أَبِي سَرْحٍ الَّذِي كَانَ عُثْمَانُ اسْتَعْمَلَهُ عَلَى مِصْرَ وَ هُوَ مِمَّنْ كَانَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ (صلى الله عليه وآله) يَوْمَ فَتْحِ مَكَّةَ هَدَرَ دَمَهُ وَ كَانَ يَكْتُبُ لِرَسُولِ اللَّهِ (صلى الله عليه وآله) فَإِذَا أَنْزَلَ اللَّهُ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ أَنَّ اللَّهَ عَزِيزٌ حَكِيمٌ كَتَبَ إِنَّ اللَّهَ عَلِيمٌ حَكِيمٌ فَيَقُولُ لَهُ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ (صلى الله عليه وآله) دَعْهَا فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ عَلِيمٌ حَكِيمٌ وَ كَانَ ابْنُ أَبِي سَرْحٍ يَقُولُ لِلْمُنَافِقِينَ إِنِّي لَأَقُولُ مِنْ نَفْسِي مِثْلَ مَا يَجِي‏ءُ بِهِ فَمَا يُغَيِّرُ عَلَيَّ فَأَنْزَلَ اللَّهُ تَبَارَكَ وَ تَعَالَى فِيهِ الَّذِي أَنْزَلَ.


242. Abu Ali Al-Ashary, from Muhammad Bin Abdul Jabbaar, from Safwaan Bin Yahya, from Ibn Muskaan, from Abu Baseer, who has narrated the following: One of the Imams (a.s.) said when he (a.s.) was asked about the Statement of Allah (azwj) Mighty and Majestic: “[6:93] And who is more unjust than he who forges a lie against Allah, or says: It has been revealed to me; while nothing has been revealed to him”. He (a.s.) said: ‘It was Revealed regarding Ibn Abu Sarh who was the office bearer of Usman over Egypt, and he was from the ones who were with the Rasool Allah (saww) on the Day of the conquest over Mecca whose blood was spared. And he used to write to the Rasool Allah (saww). So if Allah (azwj) Mighty and Majestic Revealed that: “Surely Allah (azwj) is Most Mighty, Most Wise”. He would write, ‘Surely Allah (azwj) is Most Aware, Most Wise’. So the Rasool Allah (saww) said to him: ‘Leave it, although Allah (azwj) is surely Most Aware, Most Wise’. So Ibn Abu Sarh used to say to the hypocrites, ‘I am saying from myself similar to what he (saww) has come up with, so he (saww) does not let me alter it’. So Allah (azwj) Blessed and High Revealed regarding him what He (azwj) Revealed’.
