عنه، قال: حدثنى داود بن سليمان القطان، قال: حدثنى أحمد بن زياد اليماني، عن اسرائيل، عن جابر، عن أبي جعفر عليه السلام، قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله: لقنوا موتاكم " لا اله الا الله " فأنها انس للمؤمن من حين يمزق قبره، قال: قال لي جبرئيل (ع): يا محمد، لو تراهم حين يخرجون من قبورهم ينفضون التراب عن رؤسهم، هذا يقول: لا اله الا الله والحمد لله يبيض وجهه، وهذا يقول: يا حسرتاه على ما فرطت في جنب الله. وفي رواية فضيل بن عثمان عمن رفعه قال: قال أبو عبد الله عليه السلام: من شهد " أن لا اله الا الله " عند موته دخل الجنة قال النبي صلى الله عليه وآله: لقنوا موتاكم " لا اله الا الله " فانها تهدم الخطايا، قال كيف من قالها في حياته؟ - قال: هي أهدم وأهدم.


1. From him, from Dawood Bin Suleyman Al Qataan, from Ahmad Bin Ziyad Al Yamai, from Israil, from Jabir, (It has been narrated) from Abu Ja’far (asws) having said: ‘Rasool-Allah (saww) said: ‘Educate your dying ones to say, ‘There is no god except for Allah (azwj)’, for it would be a friend for the Believers when he is alone in his grave’. Jibraeel (as) said to me (saww): ‘O Muhammad (saww)! If only you (saww) could see them coming out from their graves and they are shaking the dust from their heads. This one would be saying, ‘There is no god except for Allah (azwj), and the Praise is for Allah (azwj)’, and his face would be whitened; and this one would be saying, ‘[39:56] O regret, for what I wasted regarding the Side of Allah (جنب الله i.e., Ali (asws))’. And in a report of Fazeyl Bin Usman, from the one who raised it, said, ‘Abu Abdullah (asws) said: ‘The one who testifies that ‘there is no god except for Allah (azwj)’ at the time of his death would enter the Paradise. The Prophet (saww) said: ‘Educate your dying ones to say that, ‘there is no god except for Allah (azwj)’, for it would demolish your sins’. He (the narrator) said, ‘How is it for the one who says it during his lifetime?’ He (asws) said: ‘It pulls down and destroys (the sins)’.
