عنه، قال: حدثنى يحيى بن أبي بكر، عن بعض أصحابه، قال: قال أبو عبد الله عليه السلام: إذا قال العبد: " ما شاء الله، لا حول ولا قوة الا بالله. " قال الله: ملائكتي استسلم عبدى، أعينوه، أدركوه، اقضوا حاجته. وفي رواية قال: قال أبو عبد الله عليه السلام: من قال " ما شاء الله " الف مرة في دفعة واحدة رزق الحج من عامه، فان لم يرزق أخر الله حتى يرزقه.

1. From him, from Yahya Bin Abu Bakr, from one of his companions who said, ‘Abu Abdullah (a.s.) said: ‘When the servant says, ‘Whatever Allah (azwj) so Desires, there is no Power or Strength except with Allah (azwj)’, Allah (azwj) Says: “My (azwj) Angels! My (azwj) servant has submitted, help him, be aware of him, fulfil his need”. And in a report, ‘Abu Abdullah (a.s.) said: ‘The one who says, ‘Whatever Allah (azwj) so Desires’, a thousand times in one session, would receive the gift of going to Hajj during that year. So if he does not, then Allah (azwj) would have Delayed it until He (azwj) does eventually Endow him for it’.
