Back to book

4-16 حدثنا أبوأحمد الحسن بن عبد الله العسكري قال: حدثنا أبوالقاسم بدر بن الهيثم القاضي قال: حدثنا علي بن منذر الكوفي قال: حدثنا محمد بن الفضيل عن أبي الصباح قال: قال جعفر بن محمد عليهما السلام: من اعطي أربعا لم يحرم أربعا من اعطي الدعاء لم يحرم الاجابة، ومن اعطي الاستغفار لم يحرم المغفرة، ومن اعطي الشكر لم يحرم الزيادة، ومن اعطي الصبر لم يحرم الاجر


4-16 Abu Ahmad al-Hassan ibn Abdullah al-Askari narrated that Abul Qasim Badr ibn al-Haysam al-Qazi quoted Ali ibn Monzar al-Kufy, on the authority of Muhammad ibn al-Fuzayl, on the authority of Abil Sabah that Ja’far ibn Muhammad as-Sadiq (MGB) said, “Whoever is granted four things would not get disappointed with four other things. Whoever is granted the opportunity to supplicate would not be disappointed with its being answered. Whoever is granted the opportunity to ask for God’s forgiveness would not be disappointed with being forgiven. Whoever is granted the opportunity to be grateful would not be disappointed with an increase in his blessings. Whoever is granted the opportunity to persevere would not be disappointed with its reward.”




4-17 حدثنا أحمد بن زياد بن جعفر الهمداني رضي الله عنه قال: حدثنا علي ابن إبراهيم بن هاشم، عن أبيه، عن محمد بن أبي عمير، عن عائذ الاحمسي، عن أبي عبد الله عليه السلام قال: أربعة اوتوا سمع الخلائق: النبي صلى الله عليه وآله وحور العين والجنة والنار، فما من عبد يصلي على النبي صلى الله عليه وآله ويسلم عليه إلا بلغه ذلك وسمعه وما من أحد قال: اللهم زوجني من الحور العين إلا سمعنه وقلن يا ربنا إن فلانا قد خطبنا إليك فزوجنا منه، وما من أحد يقول: اللهم ادخلني الجنة إلا قالت الجنة: اللهم أسكنه في، وما من أحد يستجير بالله من النار إلا قالت النار: يا رب أجره مني


4-17 Ahmad ibn Zyad ibn Ja’far al-Hamedany - may God be pleased with him - narrated that Ali ibn Ibrahim ibn Hashim quoted his father, on the authority of Muhammad ibn Abi Umayr, on the authority of A’ez al-Ahmasi that Aba Abdullah as-Sadiq (MGB) said, “There are four who hear everyone: The Prophet (MGB), the green-eyed Houries , Paradise, and the Fire. In fact, the Prophet (MGB) hears the prayers of whoever sends blessings upon the Prophet Muhammad (MGB), and takes his prayers up to God. When anyone asks God to be married to green-eyed Houries, they will say, ‘O Lord! Please grant your servant what he asks for and marry us to him.’ When anyone asks God to take him into Paradise, Paradise would say, ‘O Lord! Please grant to your servant what he has asked Thou for and let him reside in Paradise.’ When anyone asks God for protection from the Fire, the Fire would say, ‘O Lord! Protect your servant from me.’”
