Al-Kāfi - Volume 6 > The Celery
Hadith #2

عَنْهُ عَنْ نُوحِ بْنِ شُعَيْبٍ النَّيْسَابُورِيِّ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ عَلِيِّ بْنِ يَقْطِينٍ فِيمَا أَعْلَمُ عَنْ نَادِرٍ الْخَادِمِ قَالَ ذَكَرَ أَبُو الْحَسَنِ ( عليه السلام ) الْكَرَفْسَ فَقَالَ أَنْتُمْ تَشْتَهُونَهُ وَ لَيْسَ مِنْ دَابَّةٍ إِلَّا وَ هِيَ تَحْتَكُّ بِهِ .

2. It is narrated from the narrator of the previous Hadith Nuh ibn Shu’ayb al-Naysaburiy from Muhammad ibn al-Hassan ibn Ali Yaqtin as I know from Nadir al-Khadim who has said the following: “Abu al-Hassan, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, once mentioned celery and said, ‘You desire to eat celery and there is no living thing that does not rub against it.’” (It can be for or against it depending on if, they rub for cure or to leave poison).
