عِدَّةٌ مِنْ أَصْحَابِنَا عَنْ سَهْلِ بْنِ زِيَادٍ عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ أَبِي نَصْرٍ عَنْ ثَعْلَبَةَ بْنِ مَيْمُونٍ عَنْ بَدْرِ بْنِ الْخَلِيلِ الْأَزْدِيِّ قَالَ كُنْتُ جَالِساً عِنْدَ أَبِي جَعْفَرٍ (عليه السلام) فَقَالَ آيَتَانِ تَكُونَانِ قَبْلَ قِيَامِ الْقَائِمِ (عليه السلام) لَمْ تَكُونَا مُنْذُ هَبَطَ آدَمُ إِلَى الْأَرْضِ تَنْكَسِفُ الشَّمْسُ فِي النِّصْفِ مِنْ شَهْرِ رَمَضَانَ وَ الْقَمَرُ فِي آخِرِهِ فَقَالَ رَجُلٌ يَا ابْنَ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ تَنْكَسِفُ الشَّمْسُ فِي آخِرِ الشَّهْرِ وَ الْقَمَرُ فِي النِّصْفِ فَقَالَ أَبُو جَعْفَرٍ (عليه السلام) إِنِّي أَعْلَمُ مَا تَقُولُ وَ لَكِنَّهُمَا آيَتَانِ لَمْ تَكُونَا مُنْذُ هَبَطَ آدَمُ (عليه السلام).


258. A number of our companions, from Sahl Bin Ziyad, from Ahmad Bin Muhammad Bin Abu Nasr, from Sa’albat Bin Maymoun, from Badr Bin Al-Khaleel Al-Azdy who said: I was seated in the presence of Abu Ja’far (a.s.), so he (a.s.) said: ‘Two Signs would occur before the rising of Al-Qaim (a.s.) which have never occurred since the descent of Adam (as) to the earth – A solar eclipse in the middle of the Month of Ramadhan, and the lunar (eclipse) at the end of it’. So a man said, ‘O son (a.s.) of the Rasool! The sun gets eclipsed at the end of the month, and the moon in the middle of it’. So Abu Ja’far (a.s.) said: ‘I (a.s.) am more knowing of what you say, but these two Signs have never occurred since the descent of Adam (as)’.
