[1/252] غيبة الطوسي: جماعة، عن جعفر بن محمد بن قولويه وأبي غالب الزراري وغيرهما، عن محمد بن يعقوب الكليني، عن إسحاق بن يعقوب قال: سألت محمد بن عثمان العمري رحمه الله أن يوصل لي كتابا قد سألت فيه عن مسائل أشكلت علي، فورد التوقيع بخط مولانا صاحب الزمان عليه السلام: أما ما سألت عنه أرشدك الله وثبتك من أمر المنكرين لي من أهل بيتنا وبني عمنا، فاعلم أنه ليس بين الله عزوجل وبين أحد قرابة، من أنكرني فليس مني وسبيله سبيل ابن نوح، وأما سبيل عمي جعفر وولده، فسبيل إخوة يوسف عليه السلام وأما الفقاع فشربه حرام ولا بأس بالشلماب وأما أموالكم فما نقبلها إلا لتطهروا فمن شاء فليصل، ومن شاء فليقطع فما آتانا الله خير مما آتاكم. وأما ظهور الفرج فانه إلى الله وكذب الوقاتون. وأما قول من زعم أن الحسين عليه السلام لم يقتل، فكفر وتكذيب وضلال. وأما الحوادث الواقعة فارجعوا فيها إلى رواة حديثنا فانهم حجتي عليكم وأنا حجة الله عليكم … وأما محمد بن علي بن مهزيار الأهوازي فسيصلح الله قلبه، ويزيل عنه شكه …


1. [1/252] Ghayba of al-Tusi: A large number from Ja’far b. Muhammad b. Qulawayh and Abi Ghalib al-Zurari and others from Muhammad b. Ya’qub al-Kulayni from Ishaq b. Ya’qub who said: I asked Muhammad b. Uthman al-Amri رحمه الله to relay my letter in which I had asked questions that had troubled me. A Tawqi came out in the handwriting of the Master of the Age عليه السلام: As for what you have asked about – may Allah guide you and make you firm – regarding those who reject me from among our family members and the sons of our uncle then know that there is no relation between Allah Mighty and Majestic and anyone else. Whoever rejects me then he is not from me and his similitude is like the similitude of the son of Noah. As for the similitude of my paternal uncle Ja’far and his sons then it is like the brothers of Joseph عليه السلام. As for beer then drinking it is forbidden but there is no harm in drinking rye-drink. As for your wealth then we do not accept it except that you become purified, so whoever wishes let him send it and whoever wishes let him withhold it, for what has been given to us by Allah is better than what has been given to you. As for the appearance of the relief then it is up to Allah and the predictors [who put a time to it] have lied! As for the belief of the one who claims that al-Husayn عليه السلام was not killed then it is disbelief, falsehood and misguidance. As for the events which arise then return in them to the narrators of our Hadith for they are my proof over you and I am the proof of Allah over you … As for Muhammad b. Ali b. Mahziyar al-Ahwazi then Allah will rectify his heart and will remove his doubt from him …
