حدثنا أبي رضي الله عنه قال: حدثنا سعد بن عبد الله عن أحمد بن أبي عبد الله البرقي عن أبيه عن أحمد بن النضر الخزاز عن عمرو بن شمر عن جابر بن يزيد الجعفي عن أبي جعفر عليه السلام قال: اوحى الله تعالى إلى رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله اني شكرت لجعفر بن أبي طالب اربع خصال، فدعاه النبي صلى الله عليه وآله فاخبره، فقال: لولا ان الله تبارك وتعالى اخبرك ما اخبرتك، وما شربت خمرا قط، لاني علمت اني ان شربتها زال عقلي، وما كذبت قط، لان الكذب ينقص المروة، وما زنيت قط لانى خفت اني إذا عملت عمل بي، وما عبدت صنما قط لاني علمت انه لا يضر ولا ينفع، قال: فضرب النبي صلى الله عليه وآله على عاتقه وقال: حق الله تعالى أن يجعل لك جناحين تطير بهما مع الملائكة في الجنة.

1. My father said, Sa’d Bin Abdullah narrated to us, from Ahmad Bin Abu Abdullah Al Barqy, from his father, from Ahmad Bin Al Nazar Al Khazaz, from Amro Bin Shimr, from Jabir Bin Yazeed Al Ju’fy, (It has been narrated) from Abu Ja’far (asws) having said: ‘Allah (azwj) the High Revealed unto Rasool-Allah (saww): “I (azwj) am Grateful to Ja’far (asws) Bin Abu Talib (asws) for four characteristics of his”. So the Prophet (saww) called him (as) over, and informed him (as). So he (as) said: ‘Had Allah (azwj) Blessed and High not Informed you (saww), I (as) would not have informed you (saww) and I (as) have not drunk the wine at all, for I (as) knew that if I (as) were to drink it, my (as) intellect would decline; and I (as) have not lied at all, because the lie decreases the alertness; and I (as) have not committed adultery at all, because I (as) feared that if I (as) were to do it, I (as) would be done with; and I (as) have not worshipped the idols at all, because I (as) knew that they neither cause harm, nor benefit’. He (asws) said: ‘So the Prophet (saww) struck him (as) upon his (as) shoulder, and said: ‘It is right (deservedly so) that Allah (azwj) the High has Made for you (as), two wings by which you (saww) would be flying along with the Angels in the Paradise’.
