Back to chapter

3-268 قال أبوعبد الله عليه السلام جرت في صفوان بن امية الجمحي ثلاث من السنن: استعار منه رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله سبعين درعا حطمية فقال: أغصبا يا محمد؟ قال: بل عارية مؤداةفقال: يا رسول الله أقبل هجرتي، فقال النبي صلى الله عليه وآله: "لا هجرة بعد الفتح". وكان راقدا في مسجد رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله وتحت رأسه رداءه فخرج يبول فجاء وقد سرق رداؤه، فقال: من ذهب بردائي، وخرج في طلبه فوجده في يد رجل فرفعه إلى النبي صلى الله عليه وآله، فقال: اقطعوا يده، فقال: أتقطع يده من أجل ردائي يا رسول الله؟ فأنا أهبه له، فقال: ألا كان هذا قبل أن تأتيني به، فقطعت يده

3-268 Abu Abdullah as-Sadiq (MGB) said, “There are three Prophetic traditions which were ascribed to the Umayyad Safvan ibn la-Jahmi. He made seventy shields with fire. The Prophet (MGB) wanted to borrow them from him (MGB). Safvan asked, ‘O Muhammad! Are you going to take them from me by force?’ The Prophet (MGB) replied, ‘No. I will borrow them from you and I will return them to you later.’He asked, ‘O Prophet of God! Will you return them to me before my migration (from Mecca to Medina)?’ The Prophet (MGB) replied, ‘There will be no migration after victory.’ Safvan was sleeping in the Prophet’s Mosque with his cloak under his head. He went to the toilet. Upon his return he noticed that someone had stolen his cloak. He yelled, ‘Someone stole my cloak!’ and ran out of the mosque to find the thief. He saw it in the hands of a man outside the mosque. He brought that man to the Prophet (MGB). The Prophet (MGB) ordered that man’s hand to be cut off. Safvan said, ‘O Prophet of God! If his hand will be cut off because of my cloak, I will donate it to him.’ The Prophet (MGB) said, ‘No. His hand would not have been cut off if you had forgiven him before bringing him to me, and before my issuing the decree to cut off his hand.’”
