351- منها ما أخبرني به الحسين بن عبيد الله عن أبي عبد الله الحسين بن علي بن سفيان البزوفري رحمه الله قال: حدثني الشيخ أبو القاسم الحسين بن روح رضي الله عنه قال: اختلف أصحابنا في التفويض وغيره، فمضيت إلى أبي طاهر بن بلال في أيام استقامته فعرفته الخلاف، فقال: أخرني. فأخرته أياما فعدت إليه فأخرج إلي حديثا بإسناده إلى أبي عبد الله عليه السلام قال: إذا أراد الله أمراً عرضه على رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم ثم أمير المؤمنين عليه السلام وسائر الأئمة واحدا بعد واحد إلى أن ينتهي إلى صاحب الزمان عليه السلام، ثم يخرج إلى الدنيا. وإذ أراد الملائكة أن يرفعوا إلى الله عز وجل عملا عرض على صاحب الزمان عليه السلام ثم يخرج على واحد بعد واحد إلى أن يعرض على رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم،ثم يعرض على الله عز وجل. فما نزل من الله فعلى أيديهم وما عرج إلى الله فعلى أيديهم،وما استغنوا عن الله عز وجل طرفة عين.

H 351 - Narrated to me Husain bin Ubaidullah from Abu Abdullah Husain bin Ali bin Sufyan Bazufari that he said: Narrated to me Shaykh Abul Qasim Husain bin Rauh that: Our scholars had differences especially with regard to the matter of predestination etc. Before Abu Tahir Bilal became deviated, I went to him once and conveyed to him information about the differences. He said: Give me sometime. I gave him sometimes and after that I visited him again. He showed me a tradition from Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s) that the Imam had said: Whenever Allah, the Mighty and the High decides a matter, it is transferred to the Messenger of Allah (s) and after him it is transferred to Amirul Momineen (a.s) and after him to every Imam one after another till it reaches upto the Master of the age (a.s) and after that it is revealed to the world. And when angels want to take an issue to the presence of Almighty Allah; first they entrust it to the Master of the Age (a.s) and then it is presented to each in succession till it reaches the Messenger of Allah (s) who presents it to Almighty Allah. On the basis of this all that is issued from Almighty Allah is issued through the Holy Imams (a.s) and all the deeds that go upto Almighty Allah go up through the Holy Imams (a.s) and the Messenger of Allah (s) and his Ahle Bayt (a.s) are not at all even for the blink of an eye needless of Allah, the Mighty and the High. [On the contrary, they are mediums of divine grace for the people by the permission of Allah].
