1 - قال: أخبرني أبو الحسن أحمد بن محمد بن الحسن بن الوليد قال: حدثني أبي، عن محمد بن الحسن الصفار، عن أحمد بن محمد بن عيسى، عن الحسن ابن محبوب، عن أبي أيوب الخزاز، عن أبي حمزة الثمالي رحمه الله عن أبي جعفر الباقر محمد بن علي عليهما السلام قال: سمعته يقول: أربع من كن فيه كمل إسلامه، وأعين على إيمانه، ومحصت عنه ذنوبه، ولقي ربه وهو عنه راض ولو كان فيما بين قرنه إلى قدمه ذنوب حطها الله عنه، وهي: الوفاء بما يجعل لله على نفسه ، وصدق اللسان مع الناس، والحياء مما يقبح عند الله وعند الناس ، وحسن الخلق من الأهل والناس. وأربع من كن فيه من المؤمنين أسكنه الله في أعلى عليين، في غرف فوق غرف، في محل الشرف كل الشرف: من آوى اليتيم ونظر له فكان له أبا [رحيما]، ومن رحم الضعيف وأعانه وكفاه، ومن أنفق على والديه ورفق بهما وبرهما ولم يحزنهما، ومن لم يخرق بمملوكه، وأعانه على ما يكلفه، ولم يستسعه فيما لا يطيق.

1. He said: Abul Hasan Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn al-Hasan ibn al-Walid reported to me from his father, from Muhammad ibn al-Hasan al-Saffar, from Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn Isa, from al-Hasan ibn Mahboob; from Abu Ayyub al-Khazzar, from Abu Hamza al-Thumali - may Allah bless him with mercy, who heard: Abu Ja’far al-Baqir Muhammad ibn ‘Ali, peace be upon him, say: "Whoever has four traits in him, his Islam is complete, his faith is entrenched and he is purified from his sins; and he will meet his Lord, having earned His pleasure, even if he were immersed in sins from head to toe. They are: Fulfilling what one adopts as divine obligation upon oneself; being truthful with the people; to be ashamed of acts which are ugly and evil in the eyes of Allah and the people; to adopt the best morality and behaviour with the family and the people. And among the believers, whoever has four traits, Allah will grant him abode with the highest of the high ones, in a chamber above the chambers and at a place of highest honour. They are: One who gives shelter to an orphan, treating him or her like a kind father; one who is kind to the weak (or old), helping and sufficiently providing; one who maintains his parents, being friendly and kind to them, never causing them any grief; and one who is not awkward with his servants and dependents, being helpful to them in what he assigns to them, never imposing a burden upon them greater than they can bear."
