6. Reward for the one who adopts the Sunnah of justice

Back to book

عنه، عن ابن محبوب، عن اسماعيل الجعفري، قال: سمعت أبا جعفر عليه السلام يقول: من استن بسنة عدل فاتبع، كان له أجر من عمل بها من غير أن ينقص من أجورهم شئ، ومن استن بسنة جور فاتبع، كان له مثل وزر من عمل به من غير أن ينقص من أوزارهم شئ.


1. From him, from Ibn Mahboub, from Ismail Al Ja’fary who said, ‘I heard Abu Ja’far (asws) saying: ‘The one who adopts the Sunnah of justice and follows it, would have for himself the Recompense of the one who acted upon it, without there being any deficiency of anything; and the one who adopts the Sunnah of oppression and follows it, he would have for himself the Recompense the like of the burden of the one who acted upon it, without there being any deficiency of anything of their burdens’.
