69. The reason due to which there happens to be vigour (spirit) in the Believers and there does not happen to be in their adversaries

أبى رحمه الله قال: حدثنا سعد بن عبد الله، عن يعقوب بن يزيد عن محمد بن أبى عمير، عن ابن أذينة، عن أبى عبد الله عليه السلام قال: كنا عنده فذكرنا رجلا من أصحابنا فقلنا فيه حدة، فقال: من علامة المؤمن أن يكون فيه حدة، قال فقلنا له: ان عامة أصحابنا فيهم حدة، فقال: ان الله تبارك وتعالى في وقت ما ذر أهم أمر أصحاب اليمين وأنتم هم ان يدخلوا النار، فدخلوها فأصابهم وهج، فالحدة من ذلك الوهج وأمر أصحاب الشمال وهم مخالفوهم ان يدخلوا النار فلم يفعلوا، فمن ثم لهم سمت ولهم وقار.

1. My father said, ‘Sa’ad Bin Abdullah narrated to us, from Yaqoub Bin Yazeed, from Muhammad Bin Abu Umeyr, from Ibn Azina, Abu Abdullah (a.s.), said, ‘I was in his (a.s.) presence, so we mentioned a man from our companions, so we said there is vigour in him. So he (a.s.) said: ‘It is from the sings of the Believer that there happens to be vigour in him’. So we said to him (a.s.), ‘Generally, there is vigour in our companions’. So he (a.s.) said: ‘Allah (azwj) Blessed and High, during the time when they were particles, Commanded the companions of the Right, and you are they, that they should enter the Fire. So they entered it, so they were affected by the glow. Thus, the vigour is from the radiance of that glow. And He (azwj) Commanded the companions of the Left, and they are their adversaries, that they should enter the Fire, but they did not do it. So, from then on there is coolness in them and grandeur in them’.
