From him, from his father, from Fazalat Bin Ayoub, from Aban Al Ahmar, from Hamza Bin Al Tayaar, Abu Abdullah (a.s.) has said: ‘There is nothing in which there is a constriction or a relaxation from what Allah (azwj) has either Commanded or Forbidden from, except that therein is a Trial and an Ordainment from Allah (azwj)’.

2. From him, from Ibn Fazaal, from Abdul A’la Bin Ayn, Abu Abdullah (a.s.) has said: ‘There isn’t for the servant any constriction or a relaxation from what Allah (azwj) has Commanded with or Forbidden from, except that therein is a Trial from Allah (azwj)’.




عنه، عن أبيه، عن يونس بن عبد الرحمن، عن حمزة بن محمد الطيار، عن أبي عبد الله (ع) قال: ما من قبض ولا بسط إلا ولله فيه مشية وفضل وابتلاء.

عنه، عن ابن فضال، عن مفضل بن صالح، عن محمد بن علي الحلبي، عن أبي عبد الله (ع) في قول الله عزوجل: " وقد كانوا يدعون إلى السجود وهم سالمون " قال: وهم يستطيعون الاخذ لما أمروا به والترك لما نهوا عنه ولذلك ابتلوا، وقال: ليس في العبد قبض ولا بسط مما أمر الله به أو نهى عنه إلا ومن الله فيه ابتلاء وقضاء.


4. From him, from Ibn Fazaal, from Mufazzal Bin Salih, from Muhammad Bin Ali Al Halby, (It has been narrated) from Abu Abdullah (a.s.) regarding the Words of Allah (azwj) Mighty and Majestic [68:43] Their looks cast down, abasement shall overtake them; and they were called upon to make obeisance (bow) indeed while yet they were safe. The Imam (a.s.) said: ‘And they had the abilities to take to what they had been Commanded for, and leave what they had been Forbidden from, and due to that they were Tested’. And the Imam (a.s.) said: ‘There is neither a constraint nor a relaxation regarding the servant, from what Allah (azwj) has Commanded for or Prohibited from, except that therein is a Trial and an Ordainment from Allah (azwj)’.
