Back to book

عنه، عن محمد بن علي، عن صفوان بن يحيى، عن عاصم بن حميد، عن أبي عبيدة، عن أبي جعفر عليه السلام، قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله: ألا، لا يعجبنك رحب الذراعين بالدم، ان له عند الله قاتلا لا يموت.


1. From him, from Muhammad Bin Ali, from Safwan Bin Yahya, from Aasim Bin Hameed, from Abu Ubeyda, (It has been narrated) from Abu Ja’far (asws) having said: ‘Rasool-Allah (saww) said: ‘Indeed! Do not be surprised at the arms welcoming with the blood. For it, in the Presence of Allah (azwj) is a murderer (who is punished severely) but does not die’.




عنه، عن محمد بن حسان، عن محمد بن جعفر، عن أبيه، انه وجد لرسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله صحيفة معلقة في سيفه ان أعتى الناس على الله، القاتل غير قاتله، والضارب غير ضاربه، ومن آوى محدثا فعليه لعنة الله والملائكة والناس أجمعين، لا يقبل الله منه صرفا ولا عدلا.


2. From him, from Muhammad Bin Hisaan, (It has been narrated) from Muhammad Bin Ja’far (asws), from his (asws) father (asws) who found a parchment of Rasool-Allah (saww) attached to his (saww) sword which said: ‘The people would come against Allah (azwj), the killer without having killed, and the striker (of the sword) without having struck it, and one who harbours a moderniser (innovator), so upon him is the Curse of Allah (azwj), and the Angels, and all the people together. Allah (azwj) will not Accept from him, neither the changing nor the justice’.




عنه، عن محمد بن علي، عن محمد بن أسلم الجبلي، عن عبد الرحمن بن أسلم، عن أبيه، عن أبي جعفر عليه السلام، قال: من قتل مؤمنا متعمدا أثبت الله على قاتله جميع الذنوب وبرأ المقتول منها وذلك قول الله تبارك وتعالى " اني أريد أن تبوء باثمى واثمك فتكون من أصحاب النار ". وفي رواية سليمان بن خالد، قال: سمعت أبا عبد الله عليه السلام يقول: أوحى الله عزوجل إلى موسى بن عمران عليه السلام " يا موسى قل للملا من بني اسرائيل: اياكم وقتل النفس الحرام بغير حق، فمن قتل منكم نفسا في الدنيا قتله الله في النار مائة ألف قتلة مثل قتلة صاحبه ".


3. From him, from Muhammad Bin Ali, from Muhammad Bin Aslam Al Jabaly, from Abdul Rahman in Aslam, from his father, (It has been narrated) from Abu Ja’far (asws) having said: ‘The one who kills a Believer deliberately, Allah (azwj) would Affirm upon his heart all the sins of the killed and free him from it. And these are the Words of Allah (azwj) Blessed and High [5:29] I wish that you should bear the sin committed against me and your own sin, and so you would be of the inmates of the Fire’. And in a report of Suleyman Bin Khalid who said, ‘I heard Abu Abdullah (asws) saying: ‘Allah (azwj) Mighty and Majestic Revealed unto Musa (as) Bin Imran (as): “O Musa (as)! Say to the crowd of the Children of Israel: ‘Beware of killing a soul without right (unjustly). So the one who kills a soul in the world, from among you, Allah (azwj) would Kill him a hundred thousand times in the Fire, similar to the killing of his companion’.




عنه، عن محمد بن علي، عن المفضل بن صالح، عن جابر بن يزيد، عن أبي جعفر عليه السلام، قال: أول ما يحكم الله فيه يوم القيامة الدماء، فيوقف ابني آدم فيفصل بينهما، ثم الذين يلونهما من أصحاب الدماء حتى لا يبقى منهم أحد، ثم الناس بعد ذلك، فيأتي المقتول قاتلة فيشخب دمه في وجهه فيقول: هذا قتلني، فيقول: أنت قتلته؟ فلا يستطيع أن يكتم الله حديثا.


4. From him, from Muhammad Bin Ali, from Al Mufazzal Bin Salih, from Jabir Bin Yazeed, (It has been narrated) from Abu Ja’far (asws) having said: ‘The first of what Allah (azwj) would Judge on the Day of Judgement is the blood. So the two sons of Adam (as) would pause and it would be Decided between them. Then the ones who were in the colours (similar situation) to these two, until there does not remain any one from them, then the (rest of the) people after that. So the killed one would come to the killer, and shed his blood in his face and would be saying, ‘This is the one who killed me’. So they would be saying to him: ‘You killed him?’ So he would not be able to conceal the narrative from Allah (azwj)’.
