3-105 حدثنا محمد بن علي ماجيلويه رضي الله عنه قال: حدثني عمي محمد ابن أبي القاسم، عن أحمد بن أبي عبد الله، عن أبيه، عن هارون بن الجهم، عن المفضل ابن صالح، عن سعد بن طريف، عن أبي جعفر عليه السلام قال: الظلم الثلاثة: ظلميغفره الله عز وجل، وظلم لا يغفره، وظلم لا يدعه، فأما الظلم الذي لا يغفره فالشرك بالله عز وجل وأما الظلم الذي يغفره الله فظلم الرجل نفسه فيما بينه وبين الله عز وجل، وأما الظلم الذي لا يدعه فالمداينة بين العباد


3-105 Muhammad ibn Ali Majiluyih - may God be pleased with him - narrated that his uncle Muhammad ibn Abil-Qasim quoted on the authority of Ahmad ibn Aba Abdullah, on the authority of his father, on the authority of Harun ibn al-Jahm, on the authority of Al-Mufaz’zal ibn Salih, on the authority of Sa’ed ibn Tarif, on the authority of Abi Ja’far Muhammad ibn Ali al-Baqir (MGB), “There are three forms of oppression: ones that God the Honorable the Exalted would forgive, ones that God theHonorable the Exalted would not forgive, and ones that God the Honorable the Exalted would not overlook. The form of oppression which God the Honorable the Exalted would not forgive is associating partners with God the Honorable the Exalted. The form of oppression which God the Honorable the Exalted would forgive is the oppression that one has done to himself which is related to what goes on between a person and God the Honorable the Exalted. The form of oppression which God the Honorable the Exalted would not overlook is related to oppressing other people.”
