عنه، عن محمد بن عبد الحميد، عن عبد الله بن جندب، عن بعض رجاله، عن أبي عبد الله عليه السلام، قال: إذا كان الرجل من شأنه الحج في كل سنة ثم تخلف سنة فلم يخرج قالت الملائكة الذين هم على الارض للذين هم على الجبال: لقد فقدنا صوت فلان، فيقولون: اطلبوه، فيطلبونه فلا يصيبونه فيقولون: " اللهم ان كان حبسه دين فأده عنه أو مرض فاشفه أو فقر فأغنهم أو حبس ففرج عنهم أو فعل بهم فافعل بهم " والناس يدعون لانفسهم وهم يدعون لمن تخلف.

1. From him, from Muhammad Bin Abdul Hameed, from Abdullah Bin Jundab, from one of his men, (It has been narrated) from Abu Abdullah (asws) having said: ‘If there was a man who performs Hajj every year and then fails a year, so he does not come out for it, the Angels who are upon the earth say to those who are upon the mountain: ‘The voice of so and so is lost from us’. So they would say: ‘Seek him’. So they seek him, and they do not find him, so they say: ‘Our Allah (azwj)! If debt has withheld him, so Fulfil his debt, or if he is sick, so Cure him, or (affected by) poverty so Enrich him, or if imprisoned, then have him Released, or Do with them what they have done with him’. And the people are supplicating for themselves, and they (the Angels) are supplicating for the one who could not make it’.
