92. Three Characteristics One Would Suffer before Death

Back to book

3-119 حدثنا محمد بن موسى بن المتوكل رضي الله عنه قال: حدثنا عبد الله بن جعفر الحميري، عن أحمد بن محمد بن خالد، عن الحسن بن محبوب، عن مالك بن عطية عن أبي عبيدة، عن أبي جعفر عليه السلام قال:في كتاب علي عليه السلام ثلاث خصال لا يموت صاحبهن أبدا حتى يرى وبالهن: البغي وقطيعة الرحم واليمين الكاذبة يبارز الله بها وإن أعجل الطاعة ثوابا لصلة الرحم، وإن القوم ليكونون فجارا فيتواصلون فتنمى أموالهم ويبرون فتزداد أعمارهم، وإن اليمين الكاذبة وقطيعة الرحم لتذران الديار بلاقع من أهلها ويثقلان الرحم، وإن تثقل الرحم انقطاع النسل


3-119 Muhammad ibn Musa ibn al-Mutevakil - may God be pleased with him - narrated that Abdullah ibn Ja’far al-Homayry quoted Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn Khalid, on the authority of Al-Hassan ibn Mahboob, on the authority of Malik ibn Atiye, on the authority of Abi Ubaydat that Abi Ja’far al-Baqir (MGB) said that it is recorded in Ali’s Book, “There are three characteristics which if one possesses he shall not die until he suffers from them: Oppression, cutting off ties with the relations of kin and falsely swearing by God which is a form of fighting with God. The best rewarded form of worshipping is having relations with one’s ties of kin. Some people get wealthier even though they are evildoers since they have relations with their ties of kin. Their kindness would increase their life-span. Falsely swearing by God and cutting off the relations of kin would destroy homes and would overburden the wombs which would cause an interruption in the continuation of generations.”
