The ruling of the Imam by the Quran, the Torah, the Injil and the Zabur for their people


محمد بن يحيى العطار قال حدثنا محمد بن الحسن الصفار عن احمد بن محمد بن عيسى عن يعقوب بن يزيد عن ابن ابى عمير عن ابراهيم بن عبد الحميد عن ابى حمزة الثمالى عن ابى عبد الله ع قال قال على ع لو ثنيت لى وسادة لحكمت بين اهل القرآن بالقرآن حتى يزهر إلى الله ولحكمت بين اهل التورية بالتورية حتى يزهر إلى الله ولحكمت بين اهل الأنجيل بالانجيل حتى يزهر إلى الله ولحكمت بين اهل الزبور بالزبور حتى يزهر إلى الله ولولا آية في كتاب الله لانبأتكم بما يكون حتى تقوم الساعة.


1 – Muhammad b. Yahya al-`Attar from Muhammad b. al-Hasan as-Saffar from Ahmad b. Muhammad b. `Isa from Ya`qub b. Yazid from Ibn Abi `Umayr from Ibrahim b. `Abd al-Hamid from Abu Hamza ath-Thumali from Abu `Abdillah عليه السلام.  He said: `Ali عليه السلام said: Were a pillow to be folded for me I would judge between the people of the Quran by the Quran until it would shine (yazhar) unto Allah, and I would judge between the people of the Torah by the Torah until it would shine unto Allah, and I would judge between the people of the Injil by the Injil until it would shine unto Allah, and I would judge between the people of the Zabur by the Zabur until it would shine unto Allah.  And were it not for an aya in the book of Allah I would inform you of whatever will be until the Hour rises.


سلمة بن الخطاب عن عبد الله بن محمد عن عبد الله بن قاسم عن عمرو بن ابى المقدام يرفعه إلى امير المؤمنين عليه السلام قال لو ثنيت لى وسادة لحكمت بين اهل القرآن بالقران حتى يظهر إلى الله ولحكمت بين اهل التورية بالتورية حتى يظهر إلى الله ولحكمت بين اهل الانجيل بالانجيل حتى يزهر إلى الله ولحكمت بين اهل الزبور بالزبور حتى يزهر إلى الله ولولا اية في كتاب الله لانبأتكم بما يكون حتى تقوم الساعة.
