4ـ عِدَّةٌ مِنْ أَصْحَابِنَا عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ خَالِدٍ عَنْ يَحْيَى بْنِ إِبْرَاهِيمَ بْنِ أَبِي الْبِلادِ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنْ عَلِيِّ بْنِ الْمُغِيرَةِ عَنْ أَبِي الْحَسَنِ (عَلَيهِ السَّلام) قَالَ قُلْتُ لَهُ إِنَّ أَبِي سَأَلَ جَدَّكَ عَنْ خَتْمِ الْقُرْآنِ فِي كُلِّ لَيْلَةٍ فَقَالَ لَهُ جَدُّكَ كُلَّ لَيْلَةٍ فَقَالَ لَهُ فِي شَهْرِ رَمَضَانَ فَقَالَ لَهُ جَدُّكَ فِي شَهْرِ رَمَضَانَ فَقَالَ لَهُ أَبِي نَعَمْ مَا اسْتَطَعْتُ فَكَانَ أَبِي يَخْتِمُهُ أَرْبَعِينَ خَتْمَةً فِي شَهْرِ رَمَضَانَ ثُمَّ خَتَمْتُهُ بَعْدَ أَبِي فَرُبَّمَا زِدْتُ وَرُبَّمَا نَقَصْتُ عَلَى قَدْرِ فَرَاغِي وَشُغُلِي وَنَشَاطِي وَكَسَلِي فَإِذَا كَانَ فِي يَوْمِ الْفِطْرِ جَعَلْتُ لِرَسُولِ الله (صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وآلِه) خَتْمَةً وَلِعَلِيٍّ (عَلَيهِ السَّلام) أُخْرَى وَلِفَاطِمَةَ (عليها السلام) أُخْرَى ثُمَّ لِلأئِمَّةِ (عَلَيهِم السَّلام) حَتَّى انْتَهَيْتُ إِلَيْكَ فَصَيَّرْتُ لَكَ وَاحِدَةً مُنْذُ صِرْتُ فِي هَذَا الْحَالِ فَأَيُّ شَيْ‏ءٍ لِي بِذَلِكَ قَالَ لَكَ بِذَلِكَ أَنْ تَكُونَ مَعَهُمْ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ قُلْتُ الله أَكْبَرُ فَلِي بِذَلِكَ قَالَ نَعَمْ ثَلاثَ مَرَّاتٍ.


4. A number of our people have narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn Khalid from Yahya ibn Ibrahim ibn abu al-Balad from his father from Ali ibn al- Mughirah who has said the following: “Once I asked abu al-Hassan (a.s.) ‘My father once asked your grandfather about reading all of the Holy Quran in one night.’ ‘(Do you mean it to happen) every night?’ Your grandfather inquired. ‘Yes, in the month of Ramadan.’ My father replied. Your grandfather asked him, ‘In the month of Ramadan?’ My father said, ‘Yes, in the month of Ramadan if I could. ’ My father would read the Holy Quran forty times in the whole month of Ramadan. After my father I would read the Holy Quran sometimes more and sometimes less than he did, as I would get a chance within my work, activities and laziness. On ’id day (after the month of Ramadan) I would assign the reward for reading the Holy Quran once for the Holy prophet, one for Imam Ali, one for Al-Sayyidah Fatimah and one for each Imam until yourself and I assigned the reward for reciting the Holy Quran once for you from the time I am doing this. Will there be anything for me in this? The Imam said, ‘On the Day of Judgment, you will be with them.’ ‘Allah is greater than can be described, this much for me!’ I exclaimed. The Imam (a.s.) said three times, ‘Yes.’”
