2 - قال: أخبرني أبو الحسن علي بن الحسن المراغي قال: حدثنا أبو القاسم الحسن بن علي بن الحسن الكوفي قال: حدثنا جعفر بن محمد بن مروان قال: حدثنا أبي قال: حدثنا أحمد بن عيسى قال: حدثنا محمد بن جعفر بن محمد ابن علي، عن أبيه عليهم السلام قال: فقد رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم رجلا من أصحابه، ثم رآه بعد ذلك، فقال [له]: ما أبطأ بك عنا ؟ فقال: السقم والفقر يا رسول الله، فقال له النبي صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم: ألا أعلمك دعوات تدعو بهن فيذهب الله عنك السقم و ينفي عنك الفقر؟ قال له: بلى بأبي أنت وأمي يا رسول الله، فقال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم: قل: " لا حول ولا قوة إلا بالله، توكلت على الحي الذي لا يموت، الحمد لله الذي لم يتخذ ولدا، ولم يكن له شريك في الملك، ولم يكن له ولي من الذل، وكبره تكبيرا ".


2. He said: Abul Hasan ‘Ali ibn al-Khalid al-Maraghi reported to me from Abul Qasim al-Hasan ibn ‘Ali ibn al-Hasan al-Kufi, who reported from Ja’far ibn Muhammad ibn Marwan, who reported from his father, who reported from Ahmed ibn Isa, who reported from Muhammad ibn Ja’far ibn Muhammad ibn ‘Ali, from his father, peace be upon them all, that: The Prophet, peace be upon him and his progeny, once missed one of his companions for a time and then, when he saw him again, he asked: "What has kept you from us so long?’ He said: "O Prophet of Allah, illness and poverty prevented me." The Prophet, peace be upon him and his progeny, said: "May I not teach you prayers which you would recite so that Allah may keep illness and poverty away from you?" He said: "Yes, may my parents be your ransom, O messenger of Allah." The Prophet, peace be upon him and his progeny, said: Say: "There is no might nor power except that by Allah. I entrust all my affairs unto the One Who lives for ever and never dies; All Praise be to Allah, Who begets no son, and Who has taken no partners in His Dominion, nor has He any protector. So magnify Him in the most Glorious way."
