سَهْلُ بْنُ زِيَادٍ عَنْ عَلِيِّ بْنِ حَسَّانَ عَنْ عَلِيِّ بْنِ أَبِي النَّوَارِ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ مُسْلِمٍ قَالَ قُلْتُ لِأَبِي جَعْفَرٍ (عليه السلام) جُعِلْتُ فِدَاكَ لِأَيِّ شَيْ‏ءٍ صَارَتِ الشَّمْسُ أَشَدَّ حَرَارَةً مِنَ الْقَمَرِ فَقَالَ إِنَّ اللَّهَ خَلَقَ الشَّمْسَ مِنْ نُورِ النَّارِ وَ صَفْوِ الْمَاءِ طَبَقاً مِنْ هَذَا وَ طَبَقاً مِنْ هَذَا حَتَّى إِذَا كَانَتْ سَبْعَةَ أَطْبَاقٍ أَلْبَسَهَا لِبَاساً مِنْ نَارٍ فَمِنْ ثَمَّ صَارَتْ أَشَدَّ حَرَارَةً مِنَ الْقَمَرِ قُلْتُ جُعِلْتُ فِدَاكَ وَ الْقَمَرُ قَالَ إِنَّ اللَّهِ تَعَالَى ذِكْرُهُ خَلَقَ الْقَمَرَ مِنْ ضَوْءِ نُورِ النَّارِ وَ صَفْوِ الْمَاءِ طَبَقاً مِنْ هَذَا وَ طَبَقاً مِنْ هَذَا حَتَّى إِذَا كَانَتْ سَبْعَةَ أَطْبَاقٍ أَلْبَسَهَا لِبَاساً مِنْ مَاءٍ فَمِنْ ثَمَّ صَارَ الْقَمَرُ أَبْرَدَ مِنَ الشَّمْسِ.


333. Sahl Bin Ziyad, from Ali Bin Hassaan, from Ali Bin Abu Al-Nawaar, from Muhammad Bin Muslim who said: I said to Abu Ja’far (a.s.), ‘May I be sacrificed for you (a.s.). Which is that thing which makes the sun to be hotter than the moon?’ So he (a.s.) said: ‘Allah (azwj) Created the sun from the light of the fire and clearness of the water, a layer from this and a layer from this until there were seven layers, then clothed it with a clothing from the fire. Then it became hotter than the moon’. I said, ‘May I be sacrificed for you, and the moon?’ He (a.s.) said: ‘Allah (azwj) Created the moon from the illumination of the light of the fire and clearness of the water, a layer from this and a layer from this until there were seven layers, then clothed it in a clothing of water, so the moon became colder than the sun’.
