عَنْهُ عَنْ عَلِيِّ بْنِ الْحَسَنِ التَّيْمِيِّ عَنْ سُلَيْمَانَ بْنِ عَبَّادٍ عَنْ عِيسَى بْنِ أَبِي الْوَرْدِ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ قَيْسٍ عَنْ أَبِي جَعْفَرٍ ( عليه السلام ) أَنَّ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ شَكَوْا إِلَى مُوسَى ( عليه السلام ) مَا يَلْقَوْنَ مِنَ الْبَيَاضِ فَشَكَا ذَلِكَ إِلَى اللَّهِ سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى فَأَوْحَى اللَّهُ إِلَيْهِ أَنْ مُرْهُمْ بِأَكْلِ لَحْمِ الْبَقَرِ بِالسِّلْقِ .

3. It is narrated from the narrator of the previous Hadith from Ali ibn al-Hassan al-Tamimiy from Sulayman ibn ‘Abbad from ‘Isa ibn abu al-Ward from Muhammad ibn Qays who has said the following: “Abu Ja‘far, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said that banu Israel complained before Musa, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, because of whiteness (albinism ) they experienced and he complained about it before Allah, most Blessed, most High. Allah sent him revelation that said, ‘Command them to eat cow meat with beets.’”
