Hadith #1

حَدَّثَنِی مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْحَسَنِ قَالَ حَدَّثَنِی أَحْمَدُ بْنُ إِدْرِیسَ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ أَحْمَدَ عَنْ أَبِی عَبْدِ اللَّهِ عَنِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ عَلِیٍّ عَنْ أَبِی حَمْزَهَ عَنْ أَبِی بَصِیرٍ عَنْ أَبِی عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع قَالَ سَمِعْتُهُ یَقُولُ نِعْمَ الْمَسْجِدُ مَسْجِدُ الْکُوفَهِ صَلَّی فِیهِ أَلْفُ نَبِیٍّ وَ أَلْفُ وَصِیٍّ وَ مِنْهُ فارَ التَّنُّورُ وَ فِیهِ نُجِرَتِ السَّفِینَهُ مَیْمَنَتُهُ رِضْوَانُ اللَّهِ وَ وَسَطُهُ رَوْضَهٌ مِنْ رِیَاضِ الْجَنَّهِ وَ مَیْسَرَتُهُ مَکْرٌ. فَقُلْتُ لِأَبِی مَا الْمَعْنِیُّ بِقَوْلِهِ قَالَ یَعْنِی مَنَازِلَ الشَّیْطَانِ

1. Abu Baseer says that he heard Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.) saying, “Masjid-e-Kufa is a real mosque for one thousand prophets and one thousand Wasis have offered Salaat in this mosque. During the time of Nuh (a.s.), water started coming out from this place and his Ark was built over here only. Its right side possesses the pleasure of Allah. Its middle has a garden of Paradise and its left has Makr.” He asked, “What do you mean by Makr?” Imam (a.s.) replied, “It implies the buildings of Shaitaan.”
