Hadith #1

7-52 حدثنا أحمد بن الحسن القطان قال: حدثنا أحمد بن يحيى بن زكريا القطان قال: حدثنا بكر بن عبد الله بن حبيب قال: حدثني محمدبن عبد الله قال: حدثني علي بن الحكم، عن أبان بن عثمان، عن محمد بن الفضيل الرزقي، عن أبي عبد الله، عن أبيه، عن جده عليهم السلام قال: للنار سبعة أبواب: باب يدخل منه فرعون وهامان وقارون، وباب يدخل منه المشركون والكفار ممن لم يؤمن بالله طرفة عين، وباب يدخل منه بنو أمية هو لهم خاصة، لا يزاحمهم فيه أحد، وهو باب لظى، هو باب سقر، وهو باب الهاوية تهوى بهم سبعين خريفا وكلما هوى بهم سبعين خريفا فاربهم فورة قذف بهم في أعلاها سبعين خريفا ثم تهوي بهم كذلك سبعين خريقا، فلا يزالون هكذا أبدا خالدين مخلدين، وباب يدخل منه مبغضونا ومحاربونا وخاذلونا وأنه لاعظم الابواب وأشد ها حراقال محمد بن الفضيل الرزقي: فقلت لابي عبد الله عليه السلام: الباب الذي ذكرت عن أبيك عن جدك عليهما السلام أنه يدخل منه بنو امية يدخله من مات منهم على الشرك أو من أدرك منهم الاسلام؟ فقال: لا أم لك، ألم تسمعه يقول: وباب يدخل منه المشركون والكفار فهذا الباب يدخل فيه كل مشرك وكل كافر لا يؤمن بيوم الحساب وهذا الباب الآخر يدخل منه بنو امية لانه هولابي سفيان ومعاوية وآل مروان خاصة يدخلون من ذلك الباب فتحطمهم النار حطما لا تسمع لهم فيها واعية، ولا يحيون فيها ولايموتون

7-52 Ahmad ibn al-Hassan al-Qat’tan narrated that Ahmad ibn Yahya ibn Zakariya al-Qat’tan quoted Bakr ibn Abdullah ibn Habib, on the authority of Muhammad ibn Abdullah, on the authority of Ali ibn al-Hikam, on the authority of Aban ibn Uthman, on the authority of Muhammad ibn al-Fazeel al-Rizqi, on the authority of Aba Abdullah as-Sadiq (MGB), on the authority of his father (MGB), on the authority of his grandfather (MGB), “There are seven gates for Hell. One gate is for Pharaoh, Haman and Qarun (Korah) to enter. The second gate is for the polytheists and the atheists to enter Hell who did not believe in God even for the twinkling of an eye. The third gate is especially for the Umayyad clan to enter. No one else will be there. That is the blazing gate. It is the burning gate. It is the swallowing gate which takes them into a depth of seventy Kharives each of which equals eighty years. It pulls them down into the depth of Hell. Once in the depth of Hell there shall be a big smoldering in Hell and they will be thrown back the same distance. This will be repeated continuously and they shall abide therein forever. The fourth gate is especially for our enemies; those who fought with us and those who refused to help us. This gate is the greatest of all and it is the most aflame.”Muhammad ibn al-Fazeel al-Rizqi added, “I told Aba Abdullah as-Sadiq (MGB), ‘Is the gate which you quoted your father on the authority of your grandfather as saying that the Umayyads shall enter meant for those who died as atheists or does it also include those of the Umayyads who accepted Islam?’ The Imam (MGB) replied, ‘O may you lose your mother! Did you not hear that there is an especial gate for the atheists and the polytheists to enter! This gate is for every atheist and polytheist who doesn’t believe in the Resurrection Day and the Reckoning of Deeds. However, there is an especial gate for the Umayyad clan to enter. That gate belongs to Abu Sufyan, Muawiyah and the household of Marvan. They shall enter Hell from that gate and they shall be tortured by its fire such that they cannot breathe. In fact, they are neither dead nor alive there.”
