Back to book

2-29 حدثنا أبي، ومحمد بن الحسن رضي الله عنهما قالا: حدثنا سعد بن عبد الله،عن القاسم بن محمد الاصبهاني، عن سليمان بن داود المنقري، عن حفص بن غياث النخعي قال: قال أبوعبد الله عليه السلام: لا خير في الدنيا إلا لاحد رجلين: رجل يزداد في كل يوم إحسانا، ورجل يتدارك ذنبه بالتوبة، وأنى له بالتوبة، والله لو سجد حتى ينقطع عنقه ما قبل الله منه إلا بولايتنا أهل البيت


2-29 (The compiler of the book narrated) that his father and Muhammad ibn al-Hassan - may God be pleased with them - narrated that Sa’ed ibn Abdullahquoted on the authority of Al-Qasim ibn Muhammad al-Isbahany, on the authority of Suleiman ibn Davood al-Minqari, on the authority of Hafs ibn Qiyath al-Nakha’ee that Abu Abdullah as-Sadiq (MGB) said, “There is no good in this world except for two men: a man who does more good deeds every day, and a man who compensates for his sins through repentance. When will he be able to repent? I swear by God that God would not accept his repentance even if he prostrates to God to the extent that his neck falls off, unless by his friendship with us - the members of the Holy Household.”
