حدثنا محمد بن الحسن رحمه الله قال: حدثنا محمد بن الحسن الصفار قال: حدثنا أحمد بن محمد بن خالد قال: حدثنا علي بن الحكم عن عبد الله بن جندب عن سفيان بن سمط قال: قال أبو عبد الله عليه السلام: إذا أراد الله تعالى بعبد خيرا فاذنب ذتبا تبعه بنقمة ويذكره الاستغفار، وإذا أراد الله تعالى بعبد شرا فاذنب ذنبا تبعه بنعمة لينسيه الاستغفار، ويتمادى به وهو قول الله تعالى (سنستدرجهم من حيث لا يعلمون) بالنعم عند المعاصي.


1. Muhammad Bin Al Hassan narrated to us, from Muhammad Bin Al Hassan Al Saffar, from Ahmad Bin Muhammad Bin Khalid, from Ali Bin Al Hakam, from Abdullah Bin Jundab, from Sufyan Bin Samt who said, ‘Abu Abdullah (a.s.) said: ‘Whenever Allah (azwj) Intends good with a servant, so (when he) commits a sin, follows it with resentment, and he remember the seeking of the Forgiveness. And whenever Allah (azwj) the High Intends evil with a servant, so (when he) commits a sin, follows it with a Bounty to Make him forget the seeking of the Forgiveness, and he keeps indulging in it. And these are the Words of Allah (azwj) the High [7:182] We Let them be enticed by degrees from whence they know not with the Bounties during disobedience’.
