I cannot begin to figure out the following narration.

حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ اَلْحَسَنِ بْنِ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ اَلْوَلِيدِ رَضِيَ اَللَّهُ عَنْهُ قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ اَلْحَسَنِ اَلصَّفَّارُ قَالَ حَدَّثَنِي أَحْمَدُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ عِيسَى عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ إِسْمَاعِيلَ عَنِ اَلْحَسَنِ بْنِ ظَرِيفٍ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اَلرَّحْمَنِ عَنْ مُعَاوِيَةَ بْنِ عَمَّارٍ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اَللَّهِ عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَمُ قَالَ:

اَلْآبَاءُ ثَلاَثَةٌ آدَمُ وَلَدَ مُؤْمِناً وَ اَلْجَانُّ وَلَدَ مُؤْمِناً وَ كَافِراً وَ إِبْلِيسُ وَلَدَ كَافِراً وَ لَيْسَ فِيهِمْ نِتَاجٌ إِنَّمَا يَبِيضُ وَ يُفْرِخُ وَ وُلْدُهُ ذُكُورٌ لَيْسَ فِيهِمْ إِنَاثٌ .


Three (types) of fathers (Adam, Jinns, and Iblees) that lays eggs and reproduce only males? 

Could someone please explain this narration? 

It's in the book Al-Khisaal (v. 1 , p. 152)

Thank you!

Imam Sadiq (عليه السلام) said: Fathers are of three types: Adam who gives birth to  a believer child and a Jinn (Jaan) who gives birth to  believer and an infidel children , and the devil who gives birth to infidel children who  there is no childbirth among them, lays only eggs. His children are all male and there is no female among them.

it means all children of Iblees are infidels which he only lays eggs which his children are only male .


He has laid eggs and hatched them in their bosoms. He creeps and crawls in their laps. He sees through their eyes, and speaks with their tongues.


They1 have made Satan the master of their affairs, and he has taken them as partners. He has laid eggs and hatched them in their bosoms. He creeps and crawls in their laps. He sees through their eyes, and speaks with their tongues. In this way he has led them to sinfulness and adorned for them foul things like the action of one whom Satan has made partner in his domain and speaks untruth through his tongue.



اتَّخَذُوا الشَّيْطَانَ لاِمْرِهِمْ مِلاَكاً، وَاتَّخَذَهُمْ لَهُ أَشْرَاكاً، فَبَاضَ وَفَرَّخَ في صُدُورِهِمْ، وَدَبَّ وَدَرَجَ في حُجُورِهِمْ، فَنَظَرَ بِأَعْيُنِهِمْ، وَنَطَقَ بِأَلسِنَتِهِمْ، فَرَكِبَ بِهِمُ الزَّلَلَ، وَزَيَّنَ لَهُمُ الخَطَلَ، فِعْلَ مَنْ قَدْ شَرِكَهُ الشَّيْطَانُ في سُلْطَانِهِ، وَنَطَقَ بِالبَاطِلِ عَلى لِسَانِهِ!


فَبَاضَ وَفَرَّخَ

It lays eggs and brings chickens, it is an allusion to the complete establishment of the devil in their breasts, because the bird lays eggs only in its lair and nest.




وَدَبَّ وَدَرَجَ

Little by little, he grew up in their arms (as a child grows up in his mother's arms).
