Back to book

حدثنا محمد بن موسى بن المتوكل قال: حدثنا عبد الله بن جعفر عن أحمد بن محمد، عن الحسن بن محبوب، عن ابى ولاد، وابن سنان جميعا، عن أبى عبد الله عليه السلام قال: ينبغى لاولياء الميت ان يؤذنوا اخوان الميت بموته فيشهدون جنازته ويصلون عليه فيكسب لهم الاجر ويكسب لميته الاستغفار ويكسب هو الاجر فيهم وفيما اكتسبه لميته من الاستغفار.


1. Muhammad Bin Musa Bin Al Mutawakkal narrated to us, from Abdullah Bin Ja’far, from Ahmad Bin Muhammad, from Al Hassan Bin Mahboub, from Abu Walaad, and Ibn Sinan together, Abu Abdullah (asws) has said: ‘It is befitting for the guardians of the dead (person) to announce it among the brethren of the dead (person) of his death, so they would be witnessing his funeral and be Praying over him. Thus, they would be attaining the Recompense for themselves and attaining the Forgiveness for the dead (person), and he (the announcer) would attain the Recompense among them and with regards to what Forgiveness has been attained by the dead (person)’.
