40. Souls of the Believers

Back to book

عنه، عن أبيه، عن حمزة بن عبد الله، عن جميل بن دراج، قال: قال أبو عبد الله عليه السلام: إن المؤمنين إذا أخذوا مضاجعهم أصعد الله بأرواحهم إليه، فمن قضى له عليه الموت جعله في رياض الجنة في كنوز رحمته ونور عزته، وان لم يقدر عليه الموت بعث بها مع أمنائه من الملائكة إلى الابدان التي هي فيها.


1. From him, from his father, from Hamza Bin Abdullah (asws) from Jameel Bin Daraaj who said, ‘Abu Abdullah (asws) said: ‘When the Believers take to their beds, Allah (azwj) Causes their souls to ascend to Him (azwj). So the one for whom the death has been Ordained, Makes his to be in a Garden of the Paradise, among the treasures of His (azwj) Mercy, and Light of His (azwj) Honour. And if the death is not Ordained for them, they are Sent with the trustworthy Angels to the bodies which they had been from’.




عنه، عن ابن فضال، عن حماد بن عثمان، عن أبي بصير، عن أبي عبد الله عليه السلام قال: ذكر الارواح أرواح المؤمنين فقال: يلتقون، قلت: يلتقون؟ - فقال: يتساءلون ويتعارفون حتى إذا رأيته قلت: فلان.


2. From him, from Ibn Fazaal, from Hamaad Bin Usman, from Abu Baseer, (It has been narrated) from Abu Abdullah (asws), said, ‘There was a mention of souls, the souls of the Believers, so he (asws) said: ‘They are meeting (each other)’. I said, ‘Meeting?’ So he (asws) said: ‘They are asking around, and recognising, to the extent when they see it, say, ‘So and so’.




عنه، عن الحسن بن محبوب، عن ابراهيم بن اسحاق الجازي قال: قلت لابي عبد الله عليه السلام: أين أرواح المؤمنين؟ - فقال: أرواح المؤمنين في حجرات في الجنة، يأكلون من طعامها ويشربون من شرابها ويتزاورون فيها ويقولون: " ربنا أقم لنا الساعة لتنجز لنا ما وعدتنا "، قال: قلت: فأين أرواح الكفار؟ - فقال: في حجرات في النار، يأكلون من طعامها ويشربون من شرابها ويتزاورون فيها ويقولون: " ربنا لا تقم لنا الساعة لتنجز لنا ما وعدتنا ".


3. From him, from Al Hassan Bin Mahboob, from Ibrahim Bin Is’haq Al Jaazy who said, ‘I said to Abu Abdullah (asws), ‘Where are the souls of the Believers?’ So he (asws) said: ‘The souls of the Believers are in chambers in the Paradise, eating from its food, and drinking from its drinks, and they are visiting (each other) therein and saying, ‘Our Lord (azwj)! Establish the Hour for us, so that it can be accomplished for us what has been Promised to us’. I said, ‘So where are the souls of the disbelievers?’ So he (asws) said: ‘In chambers in the Fire, eating from its food, and drinking from its drinks, and visiting (each other) therein, and saying, ‘Our Lord (azwj)! Do not Establish the Hour for us, so that it may be accomplished what has been Promised to us’.
