Hadith #1

الْحُسَيْنُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ مُعَلَّى بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَنْ بِسْطَامَ بْنِ مُرَّةَ الْفَارِسِيِّ قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ الرَّحْمَنِ بْنُ يَزِيدَ الْفَارِسِيُّ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ مَعْرُوفٍ عَنْ صَالِحِ بْنِ رَزِينٍ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ( عليه السلام ) قَالَ قَالَ أَمِيرُ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ ( عليه السلام ) عَلَيْكُمْ بِالْهَرِيسَةِ فَإِنَّهَا تُنْشِطُ لِلْعِبَادَةِ أَرْبَعِينَ يَوْماً وَ هِيَ مِنَ الْمَائِدَةِ الَّتِي أُنْزِلَتْ عَلَى رَسُولِ اللَّهِ ( صلى الله عليه وآله ) .

1. Al-Husayn from Muhammad has narrated from Mu‘alla’ ibn Muhammad from Bistam ibn Murrah al-Farsiy who has said that narrated to us ‘Abd al-Rahman ibn Yazid al-Farsiy from Muhammad ibn Ma’ruf from Salih ibn Razin who has said the following: “Abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said that ’Amir al-Mu’minin has said, ‘You must eat al- Harisah (mashed grains and meat) because it energizes you for worshipping for forty days. It was of the items in the table-spread with food that was revealed to the Messenger of Allah, O Allah, grant compensation to Muhammad and his family worthy of their services to Your cause.’”
