20-2 حدثنا أبي رضي الله عنه قال: حدثنا سعد بن عبد الله، عن أحمد بن أبي عبد الله البرقي قال: حدثني محمد بن عبد الله بن مهران قال: حدثني علي بن الحسين ابن عبيدالله اليشكري قال: حدثني محمد بن المثنى الحضرمي، عن عثمان بن زيد، عن جابر بن يزيد، عن أبي جعفر عليه السلام قال: للمؤمن على الله عز وجل عشرون خصلة يفي له بها، على الله تبارك وتعالى أن لا يفتنه ولا يضله، وله على الله أن لا يعريه ولا يجوعه، وله على الله أن لا يشمت به عدوه، وله على الله أن لا يخذله ويعزله،وله على الله أن لا يهتك ستره، وله على الله أن لا يميته غرقا ولا حرقا، وله على الله أن لا يقع على شيء ولا يقع عليه شيء، وله على الله أن يقيه مكر الماكرين، وله على الله أن يعيذه من سطوات الجبارين، وله على الله أن يجعله معنا في الدنيا والآخرة، وله على الله أن لا يسلط عليه من الادواء ما يشين خلقته، وله على الله أن يعيذه من البرص والجذام وله على الله أن لا يميته على كبيرة، وله على الله أن لا ينسيه مقامه في المعاصي حتى يحدث توبة، وله على الله أن لا يحجب عنه معرفته بحجته، وله على الله أن لا يعـزز في قـلبه الباطل، وله على اللهأن يحشره يوم القيامة ونوره يسعى بين يديه، وله على الله أن يوفقه لكل خير، وله على الله أن لا يسلط عليه عدوه فيذله، وله على الله أن يختم له بالامن والايمان ويجعله معنا في الرفيق الاعلى. هذه شرائط الله عز وجل للمؤمنين
