34. The reason due to which the Prophets (as) and the Believers are Indulged in Trials

Back to book

حدثنا أبي رضى الله عنه قال: حدثنا علي بن الحسين السعد آبادي، عن احمد بن أبى عبد الله البرقى، عن الحسن بن محبوب، عن سماعة بن مهران، عن أبى عبد الله " ع " قال: ان في كتاب علي عليه السلام ان اشد الناس بلاء النبيون ثم الوصيون ثم الامثل فالامثل، وإنما يبتلي المؤمن على قدر اعماله الحسنة فمن صح دينه وصح عمله اشتد بلائه وذلك ان الله عزوجل لم يجعل الدنيا ثوابا لمؤمن ولا عقوبة لكافر، ومن سخف دينه وضعف عمله قل بلائه، والبلاء اسرع إلى المؤمن المتقى من المطر إلى قرار الارض.


1. My father narrated to us, from Ali Bin Al Husayn Al Sa’ad Abady, from Ahmad Bin Abu Abdullah Al Barqy, from Al Hassan Bin Mahboub, from Sama’at Bin Mahran, Abu Abdullah (a.s.) has said: ‘It was in the Book of Ali (a.s.) that the most intense of the affliction are upon the Prophets (as), then the successors (as), then in accordance to excellence. But rather, the believer gets Tested in accordance with his good deeds. So the one whose religion is correct, and his deeds are correct, would be most intensely Tested, and that is that Allah (azwj) Mighty and Majestic did not Make the world are a Reward for the Believer, nor as a Punishment for the disbeliever. And the one who’s Religion is absurd, and his deeds are weak, his afflictions would be little. And the afflictions come easier to the pious Believer than the rain does to the slope of the earth’.




حدثنا محمد بن موسى بن المتوكل رضى الله عنه قال: حدثنا عبد الله ابن جعفر الحميري، عن أحمد بن محمد بن خالد، عن أبى عبد الله الجامورانى عن الحسن بن أبى حمزة، عن أبيه، عن أبى عبد الله " ع " قال: لو أن مؤمنا كان في قلة جبل لبعث الله عز وجل إليه من يؤذيه ليأجره على ذلك.


2. Muhammad Bin Musa Bin Al Mutawakkil narrated to us, from Abdullah Ibn Ja’far Al Humeyri, from Ahmad Bin Muhammad Bin Khalid, from Abu Abdullah Al Jamourany, from Al Hassan Bin Abu Hamza, from his father, Abu Abdullah (a.s.) has said: ‘Even if the Believer was on top of a mountain, Allah (azwj) Mighty and Majestic would Send a man to him who would hurt him, in order (for Allah (azwj)) to Recompense him upon that’.




حدثنا حمزة بن محمد بن احمد العلوي رضي الله عنه قال: أخبرنا احمد بن محمد الكوفي قال: حدثنا عبيدالله بن حمدون قال: حدثنا الحسين بن نصير قال حدثنا خالد، عن حصين،: عن يحيى بن عبد الله بن الحسن، عن أبيه، عن علي بن الحسين، عن أبيه عليهما السلام قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله مازلت أنا ومن كان قبلي من النبيين والمؤمنين مبتلين بمن يؤذينا، ولو كان المؤمن على رأس جبل لقيض الله عز وجل له من يؤذيه ليأجره على ذلك.


3. Hamza Bin Muhammad Bin Ahmad Al Alawy narrated to us, from Ahmad Bin Muhammad Al Kufy, from Ubeydullah Bin Hamdoun, from Al Husayn Bin Naseyr, from Khalid, from Haseyn, from Yahya Bin Abdullah Bin Al Hassan, from his father, (It has been narrated) from Ali (a.s.) Bin Al-Husayn (a.s.), from his (a.s.) father (a.s.) having said: ‘Rasool-Allah (saww) said: ‘Neither I (saww), nor the ones who were before me (saww), from the Prophets (as) and the Believers, have ever ceased to be Tested with the ones who harmed us. Even if the Believer were to be upon the top of a mountain, it is destined that Allah (azwj) Mighty and Majestic would Send to him one who would harm him, so that He (azwj) would Recompense him upon that’. (وقال) أمير المؤمنين " ع ": مازلت مظلوما منذ ولدتني أمي حتى ان كان عقيل ليصيبه رمد فيقول لا تذروني حتى تذروا عليا، فيذروني وما بى من رمد. And Amir Al-Momineen (a.s.) said: ‘I (a.s.) have never cease to be oppressed since my (a.s.) mother (as) was blessed with me (a.s.), to the extent that if Aqeel had sore eyes so he said, ‘Do not sprinkle me (into my eyes) until you sprinkle Ali (a.s.), so they would sprinkle (eye powder) into my (a.s.) (eyes) although I (a.s.) was not with sore eyes’.
