Abstract:   (893 Views)

Many narrations have been reported in the writings of the Shiites and Sunnis on the beginning and motivations of creation by Allah. In some of these narrations the motivation of creation is defined as the Messenger of Allah, peace be upon him and his household. One of these narrations is a statement of such a fame which has been quoted in different Islamic sciences and countless exegetic, jurisprudential, theological, mystical and literary writings, that is, “Were it not for you I would have not created the spheres.” Despite all these writings and reports, this statement was not told by the Messenger of Allah, peace be upon him and his household. Nevertheless, there are many narrations with the same content and sometimes with the same words reported in Shii and Sunni hadith sources, which may lead us to think this statement is repeated in Islamic writings to transmit a concept and a meaning. Moreover, it is clear that fabrication in making this hadith is out of question and those who have thought this is a fabricated hadith are mistaken.
