Back to book

3-84 حدثنا أبي رضي الله عنه قال: حدثنا سعد بن عبد الله قال: حدثني أحمد ابن محمد بن عيسى، عن العباس بن معروف، عن أبي همام إسماعيل بن همام عن محمد ابن سعيد بن غزوان، عن السكوني، عن أبي عبد الله جعفر بن محمد، عن أبيه، عن آبائه عن علي عليهما السلام عن النبي صلى الله عليه وآله: قال: تكلم النار يوم القيامة ثلاثا أميرا وقاريا وذاثروة من المال، فتقول للامير: يا من وهب الله له سلطانا فلم يعدل، فتزدرده كما يزدرد الطير حب السمسم وتقول للقارئ: يا من تزين للناس وبارز الله بالمعاصي فتزدرده. وتقول للغني: يا من وهب الله له دنيا كثيرة واسعة فيضا وسأله الفقير اليسير قرضا فأبى إلا بخلا فتزدرده


3-84 (The compiler of the book narrated) that his father - may God be pleased with him - narrated that Sa’ed ibn Abdullah quoted Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn Isa, on the authority of Al-Abbas ibn Ma’ruf, on the authority of Abi Himmam - Isma’il ibn Himam, on the authority of Muhammad ibn Sa’id ibn Qazvan, on the authority of Al-Sakoony, on the authority of Aba Abdullah Ja’far ibn Muhammad as-Sadiq (MGB), on the authority of his father (MGB), on the authority of his forefathers (MGB), on the authority of Ali (MGB) that the Prophet (MGB) said, “The Fire shall speak to three people on the Resurrection Day: rulers, knowledgeable ones and the wealthy. The Fire shall tell the ruler, ‘O ye to whom God granted power but you did not act justly!’ Then it will devour him just as a bird devours a sesame seed. The Fire will tell the knowledgeable one, ‘O ye who were proud of yourself near the people and disobeyed God!’ It will devour him also. The Fire will tell the wealthy, ‘O ye to whom God granted a lot of wealth in the world but were greedy and did not even grant a small loan to those who were in need asking you for small loans.’ It will devour him also.”
