Back to book

2-32 حدثنا أبي رضي الله عنه قال: حدثنا محمد بن يحيـى العطـار، عن محمد بنأحمد، عن يعقوب بن يزيد باسناده رفعه إلى أبي جعفر عليه السلام أنه قال: الامر بالمعروف والنهي عن المنكر خلقان من خلق الله عز وجل، فمن نصرهما أعزه الله ومن خذلهما خذله الله عز وجل


2-32 (The compiler of the book narrated) that his father - may God be pleased with him - narrated that Muhammad ibn Yahya al-Attar quoted on the authority of Muhammad ibn Ahmad, on the authority of Yaqoob ibn Yazid who linked it up to Abu Jaf’far Al-Baqir (MGB) saying, “Enjoining todo good and admonishing against evil are two of the creatures of the Exalted the Honorable God. God will honor whoever helps them, and God will abandon whoever abandons them.”
