6-9 حدثنا أبي رضي الله عنه قال: حدثنا سعد بن عبد الله قال: حدثنا محمد بن عيسى بن عبيد عن محمد بن شعيب الصيرفي، عن الهيثم أبي كهمس، عن أبي عبـدالله عليه السلام قال: خصال ينتفع بها المؤمن بعد موته: ولد صالح يستغفر له، ومصحف يقرأ فيه، وقليب يحفره، وغرس يغرسه، وصدقة ماء يجريه، وسنة حسنة يؤخذ بها بعده


6-9 (The compiler of the book narrated) that his father - may God be pleased with him - narrated that Sa’ed ibn Abdullah quoted Muhammad ibn Isa ibn Ubayd, on the authority of Muhammad ibn Shoayb al-Sayrafi, on the authority of Al-Haysam Abi Kahmas that Aba Abdullah as-Sadiq (MGB)said, “Six things will benefit a believer after his death: 1. A child who seeks God for his parent’s forgiveness; 2. A book which he has left behind; 3. A tree which he has planted; 4. A water well which he has dug up; 5. Charity which he has established; and 6. A good tradition from him which is acted on after him.”
