عنه، عن أبيه البرقي، عن ابن فضال، عن ابن بكير، عن أبي عبد الله عليه - السلام، قال: كانت لرسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله ناقة لا تسبق، فسابق أعرابي بناقته فسبقتها فاكتأب لذلك المسلمون، فقال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله: انها ترفعت فحق على الله أن لا يرتفع شئ الا وضعه الله.


1. From him, from his father Al Barqy, from Ibn Fazaal, from Ibn Bakeyyr, (It has been narrated) from Abu Abdullah (a.s.) having said: ‘There was a she-camel for Rasool-Allah (azwj) which (was not allowed to be) preceded. A Bedouin preceded it with his she-camel, so that made the Muslims to be gloomy. So Rasool-Allah (saww) said: ‘But rather it was higher, so it is a right upon Allah (azwj) that nothing would be higher than it except that Allah (azwj) would Put it down’.




عنه، عن أبيه البرقي، باسناده، رفعه، إلى أبي عبد الله عليه السلام، قال: ان المتكبرين يجعلون في صور الذر، فيطأهم الناس حتى يفرغوا من الحساب. وفي رواية معاوية بن عمار، عن أبي عبد الله عليه السلام، قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله: ان في السماء ملكين موكلين بالعباد، فمن تكبر وتجبر وضعاه.


2. From him, from his father Al Barqy, by his chain, Abu Abdullah (a.s.) having said: ‘The arrogant ones would be Made to be in an image of the particle. The people would be treading upon them until they are free from the Reckoning’. And in a report of Muawiya Bin Amaar, (It has been narrated) from Abu Abdullah (a.s.) having said: ‘Rasool-Allah (saww) said: ‘In the sky there are two Angels been Allocated with the servants. So the one who is arrogant and tyrannous, (they) invert him (his Eman)’.




عنه، رفعه، عن ابن بكير، عن أبي عبد الله عليه السلام، قال: ان في جهنم واديا يقال له سقر، للمتكبرين، شكا إلى الله شدة حره وسأله أن تينفس، فأذن له فأحرق جهنم. وفي رواية ميسر، عن أبي جعفر عليه السلام، قال: ان في جهنم جبلا يقال له صعود، وان في صعود لواديا يقال له سقر، وان لفى قعر سقر لجبا يقال له هبهب، كلما كشف غطاء ذلك الجب ضج أهل النار من حره وذلك منازل الجبارين.


3. From him, raising it, from Ibn Bakeyr, (It has been narrated) from Abu Abdullah (a.s.) having said: ‘There is a valley in Hell called Saqar, for the arrogant ones. It complained to Allah (azwj) of the intensity of its own self and asked His (azwj) permission to exhale. So it was Permitted, and Hell was inflamed’. And in a report of Maysar, from Abu Ja’far (a.s.) having said: ‘In Hell there is a mountain calle Saoud, and in Saoud there is a valley called Saqar, and at the bottom of Saqar there is a pit called Habhab. Every time the lid of that pit is uncovered, the inhabitants of the Fire raise a racket due to its heat. And that is the house of the arrogant ones’.
