1- عِدَّةٌ مِنْ أَصْحَابِنَا عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ إِسْمَاعِيلَ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ عُذَافِرٍ عَنْ إِسْحَاقَ بْنِ عَمَّارٍ عَنْ عَبْدِ الأعْلَى مَوْلَى آلِ سَامٍ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللهِ (عَلَيْهِ السَّلام) قَالَ لَمَّا نَزَلَتْ هَذِهِ الآيَةُ يا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا قُوا أَنْفُسَكُمْ وَأَهْلِيكُمْ ناراً جَلَسَ رَجُلٌ مِنَ الْمُسْلِمِينَ يَبْكِي وَقَالَ أَنَا عَجَزْتُ عَنْ نَفْسِي كُلِّفْتُ أَهْلِي فَقَالَ رَسُولُ اللهِ (صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِه) حَسْبُكَ أَنْ تَأْمُرَهُمْ بِمَا تَأْمُرُ بِهِ نَفْسَكَ وَتَنْهَاهُمْ عَمَّا تَنْهَى عَنْهُ نَفْسَكَ.

1. A number of our people have narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from Muhammad ‘Isma’il from Muhammad ibn ‘Adhafir from Ishaq ibn ‘Ammar from ‘Abd al-‘A’la’, Mawla ale Sam who has said the following: “Abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said that when the following verse of the Holy Quran was revealed: ‘O believers save yourselves and your family from a fire. . . (66:6) one man from the Muslims sat straight and began to weep, saying, ‘I have failed in saving myself and now I am commanded to save my family also.’ The Messenger of Allah, O Allah, grant compensation to Muhammad and his family worthy of their services to Your cause, said, ‘It is enough for you to ask them to do good as you ask yourself and prohibit them from committing sins as you prohibit yourself.’”
