مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ يَحْيَى عَنْ سَلَمَةَ بْنِ الْخَطَّابِ وَ عِدَّةٌ مِنْ أَصْحَابِنَا عَنْ سَهْلِ بْنِ زِيَادٍ جَمِيعاً عَنْ عَلِيِّ بْنِ حَسَّانَ عَنْ عَلِيِّ بْنِ عَطِيَّةَ الزَّيَّاتِ عَنْ مُعَلَّى بْنِ خُنَيْسٍ قَالَ سَأَلْتُ أَبَا عَبْدِ اللَّهِ (عليه السلام) عَنِ النُّجُومِ أَ حَقٌّ هِيَ فَقَالَ نَعَمْ إِنَّ اللَّهَ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ بَعَثَ الْمُشْتَرِيَ إِلَى الْأَرْضِ فِي صُورَةِ رَجُلٍ فَأَخَذَ رَجُلًا مِنَ الْعَجَمِ فَعَلَّمَهُ النُّجُومَ حَتَّى ظَنَّ أَنَّهُ قَدْ بَلَغَ ثُمَّ قَالَ لَهُ انْظُرْ أَيْنَ الْمُشْتَرِي فَقَالَ مَا أَرَاهُ فِي الْفَلَكِ وَ مَا أَدْرِي أَيْنَ هُوَ قَالَ فَنَحَّاهُ وَ أَخَذَ بِيَدِ رَجُلٍ مِنَ الْهِنْدِ فَعَلَّمَهُ حَتَّى ظَنَّ أَنَّهُ قَدْ بَلَغَ وَ قَالَ انْظُرْ إِلَى الْمُشْتَرِي أَيْنَ هُوَ فَقَالَ إِنَّ حِسَابِي لَيَدُلُّ عَلَى أَنَّكَ أَنْتَ الْمُشْتَرِي قَالَ وَ شَهَقَ شَهْقَةً فَمَاتَ وَ وَرِثَ عِلْمَهُ أَهْلُهُ فَالْعِلْمُ هُنَاكَ.


507. Muhammad Bin Yahya, from Salmat Bin Al-Khataab and a number of our companions, from Sahl Bin Ziyad together, from Ali Bin Hassaan, from Ali Bin Atiyya Al-Zayyaat, from Moala Bin Khuneys who said: I asked Abu Abdullah (asws) about the stars (astrology), is it true?’ So he (asws) said; ‘Yes. Allah (azwj) Sent Jupiter to the earth in the image of a man. So he took a man from the non-Arabs and taught him the stars (Astrology) until he thought that he understood it. Then he said to him, ‘Look around. Where is the Jupiter?’ So he said, ‘I cannot see it in the sky and I do not know where it is’. He (asws) said; ‘He left him and grabbed the hand of a man from India. So he taught him until he thought he had understood it, and said, ‘Look at Jupiter, where is it?’ So he said, ‘My calculation evidences to me that you are the Jupiter’. He (asws) said: ‘He gasped a cry and died, and his people inherited his knowledge, so the knowledge is over there (in India)’.
