عَنْهُ عَنْ أَبَانٍ عَنْ زُرَارَةَ عَنْ أَبِي جَعْفَرٍ (عليه السلام) قَالَ كَانَ إِبْلِيسُ يَوْمَ بَدْرٍ يُقَلِّلُ الْمُسْلِمِينَ فِي أَعْيُنِ الْكُفَّارِ وَ يُكَثِّرُ الْكُفَّارَ فِي أَعْيُنِ الْمُسْلِمِينَ فَشَدَّ عَلَيْهِ جَبْرَئِيلُ (عليه السلام) بِالسَّيْفِ فَهَرَبَ مِنْهُ وَ هُوَ يَقُولُ يَا جَبْرَئِيلُ إِنِّي مُؤَجَّلٌ إِنِّي مُؤَجَّلٌ حَتَّى وَقَعَ فِي الْبَحْرِ قَالَ زُرَارَةُ فَقُلْتُ لِأَبِي جَعْفَرٍ (عليه السلام) لِأَيِّ شَيْ‏ءٍ كَانَ يَخَافُ وَ هُوَ مُؤَجَّلٌ قَالَ يَقْطَعُ بَعْضَ أَطْرَافِهِ.


419. From him, from Abaan, from Zurara, who has narrated the following: Abu Ja’far (a.s.) having said: ‘On the Day of Badr, Iblees (la) used to belittle the Muslims in the eyes of the infidels, and magnify the infidels in the eyes of the Muslims. So Jibrael (as) pulled the sword against him (la) and he (la) fled from him (as) and he (la) was saying, ‘O Jibraeel (as), I (la) have been Granted a term, I (la) have been Granted a term’, until he (la) ended up in the sea’. Zurara (the narrator) said, ‘So I said to Abu Ja’far (a.s.), ‘What was it that he (la) was afraid of since he (la) had been Granted a specific term?’ He (a.s.) said: ‘Some parts of his (la) sides to be cut off’.
