حُمَيْدُ بْنُ زِيَادٍ عَنِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ الْكِنْدِيِّ عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ الْحَسَنِ الْمِيثَمِيِّ عَنْ أَبَانِ بْنِ عُثْمَانَ عَنْ رَجُلٍ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ (عليه السلام) قَالَ كَانَ عَلَى عَهْدِ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ (صلى الله عليه وآله) رَجُلٌ يُقَالُ لَهُ ذُو النَّمِرَةِ وَ كَانَ مِنْ أَقْبَحِ النَّاسِ وَ إِنَّمَا سُمِّيَ ذُو النَّمِرَةِ مِنْ قُبْحِهِ فَأَتَى النَّبِيَّ (صلى الله عليه وآله) فَقَالَ يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ أَخْبِرْنِي مَا فَرَضَ اللَّهُ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ عَلَيَّ فَقَالَ لَهُ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ (صلى الله عليه وآله) فَرَضَ اللَّهُ عَلَيْكَ سَبْعَةَ عَشَرَ رَكْعَةً فِي الْيَوْمِ وَ اللَّيْلَةِ وَ صَوْمَ شَهْرِ رَمَضَانَ إِذَا أَدْرَكْتَهُ وَ الْحَجَّ إِذَا اسْتَطَعْتَ إِلَيْهِ سَبِيلًا وَ الزَّكَاةَ وَ فَسَّرَهَا لَهُ فَقَالَ وَ الَّذِي بَعَثَكَ بِالْحَقِّ نَبِيّاً مَا أَزِيدُ رَبِّي عَلَى مَا فَرَضَ عَلَيَّ شَيْئاً فَقَالَ لَهُ النَّبِيُّ (صلى الله عليه وآله) وَ لِمَ يَا ذَا النَّمِرَةِ فَقَالَ كَمَا خَلَقَنِي قَبِيحاً قَالَ فَهَبَطَ جَبْرَئِيلُ (عليه السلام) عَلَى النَّبِيِّ (صلى الله عليه وآله) فَقَالَ يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ إِنَّ رَبَّكَ يَأْمُرُكَ أَنْ تُبَلِّغَ ذَا النَّمِرَةِ عَنْهُ السَّلَامَ وَ تَقُولَ لَهُ يَقُولُ لَكَ رَبُّكَ تَبَارَكَ وَ تَعَالَى أَ مَا تَرْضَى أَنْ أَحْشُرَكَ عَلَى جَمَالِ جَبْرَئِيلَ (عليه السلام) يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ فَقَالَ لَهُ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ (صلى الله عليه وآله) يَا ذَا النَّمِرَةِ هَذَا جَبْرَئِيلُ يَأْمُرُنِي أَنْ أُبَلِّغَكَ السَّلَامَ وَ يَقُولُ لَكَ رَبُّكَ أَ مَا تَرْضَى أَنْ أَحْشُرَكَ عَلَى جَمَالِ جَبْرَئِيلَ فَقَالَ ذُو النَّمِرَةِ فَإِنِّي قَدْ رَضِيتُ يَا رَبِّ فَوَ عِزَّتِكَ لَأَزِيدَنَّكَ حَتَّى تَرْضَى.


531. Humeyd Bin Ziyad, from Al-Hassan Bin Muhammad Al-Kindy, from Ahmad Bin Al-Hassan Al-Maysami, from Aban Bin Usman, from a man, who has reported the following: Abu Abdullah (a.s.) has said: ‘There was a man during the era of the Rasool Allah (saww) called Zu Al-Namrat, and he was from the ugliest of the people and that is why he was named Al-Zu Al-Namrat (Animal face) due to his ugliness. So he came to the Prophet (saww) and said, ‘O Rasool Allah (saww), inform me of what Allah (azwj) Mighty and Majestic has Made to be obligatory upon me’. So the Rasool Allah (saww) said to him: ‘Allah (azwj) has Made it an obligation upon you to Pray seventeen cycles during the day and the night, and Fasts of the Month of Ramadhan when you are of realisation (adult), and the Pilgrimage when you have the (financial) capability for it, and the Zakat’, and detailed these for him. So he said, ‘By the One Who (azwj) Sent you with the Truth as a Prophet (saww), I shall not increase anything upon what has been Obligated upon me’. So the Rasool Allah (saww) said; ‘And why, O Zu Al-Namrat?’ He said, ‘For He (azwj) has Created me as ugly’. He (a.s.) said: ‘So Jibraeel (as) descended upon the Prophet (saww) and said: ‘O Rasool Allah (saww)! Your (saww) Lord (azwj) Commands you (saww) that you (saww) should convey Greetings to Zu Al-Namrat and say to him: ‘Your Lord (azwj), Blessed and High has Said to you: “Would it not make you happy to be resurrected upon the beauty of Jibraeel (as) on the Day of Judgement?’ So the Rasool Allah (saww) said to him: ‘O Zu Al-Namrat! This here is Jibraeel (as) Commanding me (as) that I (saww) should convey Greetings to you and that your Lord (azwj) has said: “Would it not make you happy to be resurrected upon the beauty of Jibraeel?’ So Zu Al-Namrat said, ‘I have thus become happy, O Lord (azwj). By Your (azwj) Honour, I shall increase (my worship) for You (azwj) until You (azwj) are Pleased’.
