عنه، عن أبيه، عن القاسم بن محمد، عن أبي حمزة، عن أبي جعفر عليه السلام، قال: إذا كان يوم القيامة جمع الله الاولين والآخرين فينادي مناد: من كانت له عند رسول الله يد فليقم، فيقوم عنق من الناس، فيقول: ما كانت ايديكم عند رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله؟ - فيقولون: كنا نصل أهل بيته من بعده، فيقال لهم: اذهبوا فطوفوا في الناس، فمن كانت له عندكم يد فخذ وابيده فادخلوه في الجنة. وقال أبو عبد الله عليه السلام: من وصلنا وصل رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله، ومن وصل رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله فقد وصل الله تبارك وتعالى.


1. From him, from his father, from Al Qasim Bin Muhammad, from Abu Hamza, (It has been narrated) from Abu Ja’far (a.s.) having said: ‘When it will be the Day of Judgement, Allah (azwj) would Gather the former ones and the later ones, so a Caller would Call out: ‘The one who had a hand (favour) upon Rasool-Allah (saww), so he should stand up’. So there would stand up a group from the people. So (the Caller) would be saying: ‘What were your hands (favours) upon Rasool-Allah (saww)?’ So they would be saying: ‘We used to invoke Salawaat upon the People (a.s.) of his (saww) Household from after him (saww)’. So it would be said to them: ‘Go and circle among the people, so the one who had a hand (favour) upon you, so take him by the hand and enter him into the Paradise’. And Abu Abdullah (a.s.) said: ‘The one who maintains (good) relations with us (a.s.), maintains relations with Rasool-Allah (saww); and the one who maintains relations with Rasool-Allah (saww) so he has maintained relations with Allah (azwj) Blessed and High’.
