It was narrated to us by Moḥammed bin ʿAlī bin al-Ḥussain bin Mūsa bin Bābawayh al-Qummi, al-Faqih, the compiler of this book رضي الله عنه who said – it was narrated to me by my father رحمه الله, who said – it was narrated to me from Saʿd bin ʿAbd Allāh, who said – it was narrated to me by Aḥmed bin Hilāl, from Aḥmed bin Ṣāliḥ, from ʿĪsa bin ʿAbd Allāh – who is from the sons of ʿUmar bin ʿAlī – from his father, from Abī Saʿīd Al-Khidhri:

From the Prophet صلى الله عليه وآله who said: “Allāh, His Majesty be Exalted, said to Mūsa bin ʿImrān عليه السلام: “Oh Mūsa, had the skies and their inhabitants with me and the seven earths are in a scale-pan and [the phrase] ‘There is no god but Allāh’ is in a scale-pan, it (the scale) will be inclined (i.e. tilt) towards [the phrase] ‘There is no god but Allāh.'””

حدثنا محمد بن علي بن الحسين بن موسى بن بابويه القمي الفقيه مصنف هذا الكتاب (رض): قال حدثني أبي (ره) قال حدثني سعد بن عبد الله قال حدثني أحمد بن هلال عن أحمد بن صالح عن عيسى بن عبد الله – من ولد عمر بن علي – عن أبيه عن أبي سعيد الخدري عن النبي صلى الله عليه وآله قال: قال الله جل جلاله لموسى بن عمران يا موسى لو أن السماوات وعامريهن عندي والأرضين السبع في كفة ولا إله إلا الله في كفة مالت بهن لا إله إلا الله
