Back to book

أبو عبد الله البرقي، عن عثمان بن عيسى، عن سالم، عن أبي عبد الله عليه السلام قال: ان أشد الناس عذابا يوم القيامة رجل أقر نطفته في رحم تحرم عليه.


1. Abu Abdullah Al Barqy, from Usman Bin Isa, from Saalim, (It has been narrated) from Abu Abdullah (asws) having said: ‘The most difficult of Punishment on the Day of Judgement would be upon a man who settled his seed in a womb which was Forbidden to him’.




عنه، عن ابن فضال، عن عبد الله بن بكير قال: قلت لابي جعفر عليه السلام في قول رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله " إذا زنى الرجل فارقه روح الايمان. " قال: قوله عزوجل " وأيدهم بروح منه. " ذلك الذي يفارقهم.


2. From him, from Ibn Fazaal, from Abdullah Bin Bakeyr who said, ‘I said to Abu Ja’far (asws) regarding the words of Rasool-Allah (saww): ‘When the man commits adultery, the spirit of faith separates from him’. He (asws) said: ‘The Words of the Mighty and Majestic [58:22] and He has Supported them with a Spirit from Him’. That is which separates from him’.




عنه، عن محمد بن علي، عن ابن فضال، عن عبد الله بن ميمون القداح، عن أبي عبد الله عليه السلام، عن أبيه، قال: للزاني ست خصال، ثلاث في الدنيا وثلاث في الآخرة أما التي في الدنيا فانه يذهب بنور الوجه، ويورث الفقر، ويعجل الفناء، وأما التى في الآخرة فسخط الرب، وسوء الحساب، والخلود في النار.


3. From him, from Muhammad Bin Ali, from Ibn fazaal, from Abdullah Bin Maymoun Al Qadah, (It has been narrated) from Abu Abdullah (asws) from his (asws) father (asws) having said: ‘The adulterer has six characteristics three in the world and three in the Hereafter. As for those which are in the world - so the light goes away from his face, and he inherits the poverty, and hastens to the destruction. And as for those which are in the Hereafter so it is the Anger of the Lord (azwj), and the evil Reckoning, and the eternal abiding in the Fire’.




عنه، عن محمد بن علي، عن ابن فضال، عن ابن القداح، عن أبي عبد الله عليه السلام، قال: قال يعقوب عليه السلام لابنه: يا بني، لا تزن فلو أن الطير زنى لتناثر ريشه.


4. From him, from Muhammad Bin Ali, from Ibn Fazaal, from Ibn Al Qadah, (It has been narrated) from Abu Abdullah (asws) having said: ‘Yaqoub (as) said to his (as) son (as): ‘O my (as) son (as)! Do not commit adultery, for even if the bird commits adultery, its wings would be scattered (shed as a punishment)’.




عنه، عن ابن أبي عمير، عن معاوية بن عمار، عن صباح بن سيابة، قال: كنت عند أبي عبد الله عليه السلام فقيل له: يزنى الزانى وهو مؤمن؟ - قال: إذا كان على بطنها سلب الايمان منه، فإذا قام رد عليه، قال: فانه إذا أراد أن يعود؟ - قال: ما أكثر ما يهم أن يعود ثم لا يعود. وفي رواية أبي عبيدة، عن أبي جعفر عليه السلام، قال: وجدنا في كتاب علي عليه السلام، قال: قال رسول الله (صلى الله عليه وآله) إذا كثر الزنا كثر موت الفجأة


5. From him, from Ibn Abu Umeyr, from Muawiya Bin Amaar, from Sabah Bin Sayabat who said, ‘I was in the presence of Abu Abdullah (asws), so it was said to him (asws), ‘The adulterer commits adultery and he is a Believer?’ He (asws) said: ‘When he was in the middle of it, the ‘Eman’ (faith) is Confiscated from him. So when he stands, it is returned back to him’. He said, ‘So if he intends to return (to committing adultery)?’ He (asws) said: ‘He gets concerned many a time if he wishes to return, then it (the faith) does not return’. And in a report of Abu Ubeyda, from Abu Ja’far (asws) having said: ‘We (asws) found in the Book of Ali (asws) that: ‘Rasool-Allah (saww) said: ‘When the adultery is rife, the sudden death would increase’.




عنه، عن علي بن عبد الله، عن شريف بن سابق، عن الفضل بن أبي قرة، عن أبي عبد الله عليه السلام، قال: لما أقام العالم الجدار أوحى الله إلى موسى عليه السلام، اني مجازى الابناء بسعي الآباء ان خير فخير وان شر فشر، لا تزنوا فتزني نسائكم ومن وطئ فراش امرئ مسلم وطئ فراشه " كما تدين تدان. " وفي رواية أبي حمزة، عن أبي جعفر عليه السلام، قال: أوحى الله إلى موسى بن عمران: " لا تزن فأحجب عنك نور وجهى، وتغلق أبواب السماوات دون دعائك ".


6. From him, from Ali Bin Abdullah, from Shareef Bin Saabiq, from Al Fazal Bin Abu Qarat, (It has been narrated) from Abu Abdullah (asws) having said: ‘When the scholar (Prophet Khizr (as)) erected the wall, Allah (azwj) Revealed unto Musa (as): “I (azwj) shall Recompense the children with the efforts of their forefathers if good so good, and if evil, so evil. Do not commit adultery, for your women will commit adultery. And the one who had intercourse on the bed of a Muslim person, intercourse would be upon his own bed. Whatever you do would be done to you’. And in a report of Abu Hamza, (It has been narrated) from Abu Ja’far (asws) having said: ‘Allah (azwj) Revealed unto Musa Bin Imran (as): “Do not commit adultery, for I (azwj) shall Veil from you the Light of My (azwj) Face, and Lock the doors of the sky, blocking your (as) supplications’.




عنه، عن البرقي، عن ابن فضال، عن ابن بكير، عن زرارة، عن عبد الملك بن أعين، قال: سمعت أبا جعفر عليه السلام يقول: إذا زنى الرجل أدخل الشيطان ذكره فعملا جميعا فكانت النطفة واحدة فخلق منها ويكون شرك شيطان.


7. From him, from Al Barqy, from Ibn Fazaal, from Ibn Bakeyr, from Zarara, from Abdul Malik Bin Ayn who said, ‘I heard Abu Ja’far (asws) saying: ‘When the man commits adultery, the Satan (la) includes himself (la) in his manhood. So they perform the deed together as if it was a single seed, so the creature from it would become an associate of Satan (la)’.




عنه، عن يحيى بن المغيرة، عن حفص، قال: قال زيد بن علي: قال أمير - المؤمنين عليه السلام: إذا كان يوم القيامة أهب الله ريحا منتنة يتأذى بها أهل الجمع حتى إذا همت أن تمسك بأنفاس الناس ناداهم مناد: هل تدرون ما هذه الريح التي قد آذتكم؟ - فيقولون: لا، وقد آذتنا وبلغت منا كل المبلغ، (قال): فيقال هذه ريح فروج الزناة الذين لقوا الله بالزنا ثم لم يتوبوا، فالعنوهم لعنهم الله، قال: فلا يبقى في الموقف أحد الا قال: " اللهم العن الزناة ".


8. From him, from Yahya Bin Al Mugheira, from Hafs, (It has been narrated) from Zayd son of Ali (asws) who said, ‘Amir-ul-Momineen (asws) said: ‘When it will be the Day of Judgement, Allah (azwj) would Grant such a rotten wind by which the all of the people gathered would be harmed by it to the extent that they would think about holding their breath. A Caller would Call out to them: ‘Do you all know what this wind is, which is harming you?’ So they would be saying, ‘No, and it has harmed all that it has reached to’. So he would say: ‘This is a wind from the discharge area of the adulterers who met Allah (azwj) without having repented, therefore curse them with the Curse of Allah (azwj)’. So there would not remain anyone in the pausing station except that he would say, ‘Our Allah (azwj)! Curse the adulterers’.
