عَلِيُّ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنِ ابْنِ مَحْبُوبٍ عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ سِنَانٍ عَنْ مَعْرُوفِ بْنِ خَرَّبُوذَ عَنِ الْحَكَمِ بْنِ الْمُسْتَوْرِدِ عَنْ عَلِيِّ بْنِ الْحُسَيْنِ ( عليه السلام ) قَالَ إِنَّ مِنَ الْأَقْوَاتِ الَّتِي قَدَّرَهَا اللَّهُ لِلنَّاسِ مِمَّا يَحْتَاجُونَ إِلَيْهِ الْبَحْرَ الَّذِي خَلَقَهُ اللَّهُ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ بَيْنَ السَّمَاءِ وَ الْأَرْضِ قَالَ وَ إِنَّ اللَّهَ قَدْ قَدَّرَ فِيهَا مَجَارِيَ الشَّمْسِ وَ الْقَمَرِ وَ النُّجُومِ وَ الْكَوَاكِبِ وَ قَدَّرَ ذَلِكَ كُلَّهُ عَلَى الْفَلَكِ ثُمَّ وَكَّلَ بِالْفَلَكِ مَلَكاً وَ مَعَهُ سَبْعُونَ أَلْفَ مَلَكٍ فَهُمْ يُدِيرُونَ الْفَلَكَ فَإِذَا أَدَارُوهُ دَارَتِ الشَّمْسُ وَ الْقَمَرُ وَ النُّجُومُ وَ الْكَوَاكِبُ مَعَهُ فَنَزَلَتْ فِي مَنَازِلِهَا الَّتِي قَدَّرَهَا اللَّهُ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ فِيهَا لِيَوْمِهَا وَ لَيْلَتِهَا فَإِذَا كَثُرَتْ ذُنُوبُ الْعِبَادِ وَ أَرَادَ اللَّهُ تَبَارَكَ وَ تَعَالَى أَنْ يَسْتَعْتِبَهُمْ بِآيَةٍ مِنْ آيَاتِهِ أَمَرَ الْمَلَكَ الْمُوَكَّلَ بِالْفَلَكِ أَنْ يُزِيلَ الْفَلَكَ الَّذِي عَلَيْهِ مَجَارِي الشَّمْسِ وَ الْقَمَرِ وَ النُّجُومِ وَ الْكَوَاكِبِ فَيَأْمُرُ الْمَلَكُ أُولَئِكَ السَّبْعِينَ أَلْفَ مَلَكٍ أَنْ يُزِيلُوهُ عَنْ مَجَارِيهِ قَالَ فَيُزِيلُونَهُ فَتَصِيرُ الشَّمْسُ فِي ذَلِكَ الْبَحْرِ الَّذِي يَجْرِي فِي الْفَلَكِ قَالَ فَيَطْمِسُ ضَوْؤُهَا وَ يَتَغَيَّرُ لَوْنُهَا فَإِذَا أَرَادَ اللَّهُ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ أَنْ يُعَظِّمَ الْآيَةَ طَمَسَتِ الشَّمْسُ فِي الْبَحْرِ عَلَى مَا يُحِبُّ اللَّهُ أَنْ يُخَوِّفَ خَلْقَهُ بِالْآيَةِ قَالَ وَ ذَلِكَ عِنْدَ انْكِسَافِ الشَّمْسِ قَالَ وَ كَذَلِكَ يَفْعَلُ بِالْقَمَرِ قَالَ فَإِذَا أَرَادَ اللَّهُ أَنْ يُجَلِّيَهَا أَوْ يَرُدَّهَا إِلَى مَجْرَاهَا أَمَرَ الْمَلَكَ الْمُوَكَّلَ بِالْفَلَكِ أَنْ يَرُدَّ الْفَلَكَ إِلَى مَجْرَاهُ فَيَرُدُّ الْفَلَكَ فَتَرْجِعُ الشَّمْسُ إِلَى مَجْرَاهَا قَالَ فَتَخْرُجُ مِنَ الْمَاءِ وَ هِيَ كَدِرَةٌ قَالَ وَ الْقَمَرُ مِثْلُ ذَلِكَ قَالَ ثُمَّ قَالَ عَلِيُّ بْنُ الْحُسَيْنِ ( عليه السلام ) أَمَا إِنَّهُ لَا يَفْزَعُ لَهُمَا وَ لَا يَرْهَبُ بِهَاتَيْنِ الْآيَتَيْنِ إِلَّا مَنْ كَانَ مِنْ شِيعَتِنَا فَإِذَا كَانَ كَذَلِكَ فَافْزَعُوا إِلَى اللَّهِ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ ثُمَّ ارْجِعُوا إِلَيْهِ .


41. Ali Bin Ibrahim, from his father, from Ibn Mahboub, from Abdullah Bin Sinan, from Ma’rouf Bin Kharabouz, from Al-Hakam Bin Mustawrid, who has said: Ali Bin Al-Husayn (asws) said: ‘From among the sustenance are those which Allah (azwj) has Measured out for the people from what their needs are to Him (azwj). The sea (atmosphere) is the one which Allah (azwj) Mighty and Majestic has Created to be between the sky and the earth’. He (asws) said: ‘And Allah (azwj) has Determined in these the flow of the sun and the moon, and the stars, and the planets, and has Determined all of that upon the orbit. Then for every orbit is an Angel with whom there are seventy thousand Angels. So they turn the circle of the orbit. So it is upon their turning that the sun, and the moon, and the stars, and the planets turn along with them. So they descend in their station which Allah (azwj) Mighty and Majestic has Determined for them. Therein are their days and their nights. So when the sins of the servants become numerous and Allah (azwj) Blessed and High Intends to Reproach them with a Sign from His (azwj) Signs, He (azwj) Orders the Angel in charge of the orbit to remove the orbit upon which the sun and the moon, and the stars, and the planets flow upon. So that Angel orders the seventy thousand Angels (which are under him) to remove these from their flows’. He (asws) said: ‘So they remove it and the sun becomes in that sea (atmosphere) in which flows in the orbit’. He (asws) said: ‘So its light gets obliterated and its colour changes. So if Allah (azwj) Mighty and Majestic Intends to maximise the Sign, He (azwj) Obliterates the sun in the sea (atmosphere) upon what Allah (azwj) Loves that His (azwj) creatures should fear His (azwj) Signs’. He (asws) said: ‘And that is during the eclipse of the sun’. He (asws) said: ‘And that is similar to what He (azwj) Does with the moon’. He (asws) said: ‘So if Allah (azwj) Intends to End it or Return it back to normal, He (azwj) Orders the Angel in charge of the orbit that he should return the orbit back to its normality. So he returns the orbit and the sun goes back to its normality’. He (asws) said: ‘So he takes it out from the water (fluid) and it is brownish (dim)’. He (asws) said: ‘And the (matter of) the moon is similar to that’. He (the narrator) said, ‘Then Ali (asws) Bin Al-Husayn (asws) said: ‘But rather, no one is scared of these two nor is anyone intimidated by these two Signs except the one who was from our (asws) Shiites. So if (these Signs) have happened, so be scared to Allah (azwj) Mighty and Majestic, then return (Repent) to Him (azwj)’.
