حدثنا احمد بن هارون الفامى رضى الله عنه قال: حدثنا محمد بن عبد الله ابن جعفر الحميرى قال: حدثنى ابى عن هارون بن مسلم عن مسعدة بن صدقة، عن الصادق جعفر بن محمد، عن ابيه عن آبائه عليهم السلام ان رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله قال: ان الله عز وجل إذا رأى اهل قرية قد اسرفوا في المعاصي وفيها ثلاث نفر من المؤمنين ناداهم جل جلاله وتقدست اسماؤه يا أهل معصيتى لولا فيكم من المؤمنين المتحابين بجلالي العامرين بصلاتهم ارضى ومساجدي والمستغفرين بالاسحار خوفا منى لانزلت بكم عذابي ثم لا ابالي.

Had there not been among you the Believers who are admirers of My (azwj) Majesty, utilising My (azwj) earth and My (azwj) Masjids for their Prayers, and seeking Forgiveness with the wakefulness in fear from Me (azwj), I (azwj) would have Sent down My (azwj) Punishment, then I (azwj) would not Care!”
