أَبَانٌ عَنْ عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَنِ بْنِ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ قَالَ سَمِعْتُ أَبَا عَبْدِ اللَّهِ (عليه السلام) يَقُولُ خَرَجَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ (صلى الله عليه وآله) مِنْ حُجْرَتِهِ وَ مَرْوَانُ وَ أَبُوهُ يَسْتَمِعَانِ إِلَى حَدِيثِهِ فَقَالَ لَهُ الْوَزَغُ ابْنُ الْوَزَغِ قَالَ أَبُو عَبْدِ اللَّهِ (عليه السلام) فَمِنْ يَوْمِئِذٍ يَرَوْنَ أَنَّ الْوَزَغَ يَسْمَعُ الْحَدِيثَ.

324. Abaan, from Abdul Rahmaan Bin Abu Abdullah who said: I heard Abu Abdullah (a.s.) saying: ‘The Rasool Allah (saww) came out of his (saww) chamber, and Marwaan and his father were both trying to listen to his (saww) narration. So he (saww) said for him: ‘The lizard, son of a lizard!’ Abu Abdullah (a.s.) said: ‘From that time they are reporting that the lizard listens to the narrations’.
