42. The Successful and the Cursed

Back to book

عنه، عن أبيه، عن صفوان بن يحيى، عن منصور بن حازم، عن أبي عبد الله (ع) قال: إن الله خلق السعادة والشقاء قبل أن يخلق خلقه، فمن خلقه الله سعيدا لم يبغضه الله أبدا، وإن عمل شرا أبغض عمله ولم يبغضه، وإن كان شقيا لم يحبه الله أبدا، وإن عمل صالحا أحب الله عمله وأبغضه لما يصيره إليه، فإذا أحب الله شيئا لم يبغضه أبدا، وإذا أبغض الله شيئا لم يحبه أبدا.


1. From him, from his father, from Safwan Bin Yahya, from Mansour Bin Haazim, Abu Abdullah (asws) has said: ‘Allah (azwj) Created the happiness and the misery before He (azwj) Created His (azwj) creatures. So the one whom Allah (azwj) Created as successful, Allah (azwj) would not Hate him, ever. And if he were to do an evil deed, He (azwj) would Hate his deeds, and would not Hate him. And if he was a cursed one, Allah (azwj) would not Love him ever. And if he worked a righteous deed, Allah (azwj) would Love his deed, and Hate him for what he had come to it. So when Allah (azwj) Loves a thing, He (azwj) does not Hate it, ever. And if Allah (azwj) Hates a thing, He (azwj) does not Love it, ever’.




عنه، عن أبيه، عن النضر بن سويد، عن الحلبي، عن عبد الله بن مسكان، عن منصور بن حازم، قال قلت لابي عبد الله (ع): أيحب الله العبد ثم يبغضه؟ - أو يبغضه ثم يحبه؟ - فقال: ما تزال تأتيني بشئ، فقلت: هذا دينى وبه أخاصم الناس، فان نهيتني عنه تركته، ثم قلت له: هل أبغض الله محمدا صلى الله عليه وآله على حال من الحالات؟ - فقال: لو أبغضه على حال من الحالات لما الطف له حتى أخرجه من حال إلى حال، فجعله نبيا، فقلت: ألم تجبني منذ سينن عن الشقاء والسعادة، إنهما كانا من قبل أن يخلق الله الخلق؟ - قال: بلى، وأنا الساعة أقوله، قلت: فأخبرني عن السعيد، هل أبغضه الله على حال من الحالات؟ - فقال: لو أبغضه الله على حال من الحالات لما ألطف له حتى يخرجه من حال إلى حال، فيجعله سعيدا، قلت: فأخبرني عن الشقي، هل أحبه الله على حال من الحالات؟ - فقال: لو أحبه الله في حال من الحالات ما تركه شقيا، ولاستنقذه من الشقاء إلى السعادة، قلت: فهل يبغض الله الله العبد ثم يحبه؟ - أو يحبه ثم يبغضه؟ - فقال: لا.


2. From him, from his father, from Al Nazar Bin Suweyd, from Al Halby, from Abdullah Bin Muskan, from Mansour Bin Hazim who said, ‘I said to Abu Abdullah (asws), ‘Does Allah (azwj) love the servant, then Hates him?’ So he (asws) said: ‘You never cease to come to me (asws) with something’. So I said, ‘This is my Religion, and by it I dispute with the people. So if you (asws) are forbidding me from it, I shall leave it’. Then I said to him (asws), ‘Did Allah (azwj) Detest Muhammad (saww) upon a (any) situation from the situations?’ So the Imam (asws) said: ‘If He (azwj) had Detested him (saww) upon a situation from the situations, why did He (azwj) Turn to him (saww) and Took him (saww) from one situation to another, so Made him (saww) a Prophet (saww)?’ So I said, ‘You (asws) did not answer me for years about the curesed and the successful. Were these two from before He (azwj) Created the creatures?’ The Imam (asws) said: ‘Yes, and I (asws) am saying it at this time’. I said, ‘So inform me about the successful one. Does Allah (azwj) Hate him upon a (any) situation from the situations?’ So the Imam (asws) said: ‘If Allah (azwj) Hated him upon a situation from the situations, why did He (azwj) Turn to him until He (azwj) Took him out from a situation to (another) situation, so Made him successful?’. I said, ‘So, inform me abou the cursed one. Does Allah (azwj) Love him upon a (any) situation from the situations?’ So the Imam (asws) said: ‘If Allah (azwj) Loved him in a situation from the situations, Allah (azwj) would not have Left him as a cursed one, and would have Recovered him from the misery to the success’. I said, ‘So, does Allah (azwj) Hate the servant, then Loves him? Or Loves him, then Hates him?’ So the Imam (asws) said: ‘No!’




عنه، عن الوشاء، عن مثنى الحناط، عن أبي بصير، قال: سمعت أبا عبد الله (ع) يقول: إن الله خلق خلقه، فخلق خلقا لحبنا، لو أن أحدا خرج من هذا الرأى لرده الله وإن رغم أنفه، وخلق قوما لبغضنا، فلا يحبوننا أبدا.


3. From him, from Al Washa, from Masny Al Hanaat, from Abu Baseer who said, ‘I heard Abu Abdullah (asws) saying: ‘Allah (azwj) Created His (azwj) creatures, so He (azwj) Created a people to love us (asws). Even if one of them were to come out from this view, Allah (azwj) would Return him even reluctantly, by his nose. And He (azwj) Created a people to hate us (asws), so they would never love us (asws), ever!’




عنه، عن ابن فضال، عن مثنى، عن أبي بصير، عن أبي عبد الله (ع) قال: إن - الله خلق قوما لحبنا، وخلق قوما لبغضنا، فلو أن الذين خلقهم لحبنا خرجوا من هذا الامر إلى غيره لاعادهم الله إليه وإن رغمت آنافهم، وخلق الله قوما لبغضنا، فلا يحبوننا أبدا.


4. From him, from Ibn Fazaal, from Masny, from Abu Baseer, Abu Abdullah (asws) has said: ‘Allah (azwj) Created a people to love us (asws), and Created a people to hate us (asws). So if the ones who have been Created to love us were to exit from this matter to someone else, Allah (azwj) would Return them to it, even if (they are) reluctant (or to be pulled) by their noses. And Allah (azwj) Created a people to hate us (asws), so they would never love us (asws), ever!’




عنه، عن النضر بن سويد، عن يحيى بن عمران الحلبي، عن معلى أبي عثمان، عن علي بن حنظلة، عن أبي عبد الله (ع) قال: إختصم رجلان بالمدينة، قدري ورجل من أهل مكة فجعلا أبا عبد الله (ع) بينهما فأتياه فذكرا كلامهما، فقال: إن شئتما أخبرتكما بقول رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله؟ - فقالا: قد شئنا، فقال: قام رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله فصعد المنبر، فحمد الله وأثنى عليه ثم قال: كتاب كتبه الله بيمينه، وكلتا يديه يمين، فيه أسماء أهل الجنة بأسمائهم وأسماء آبائهم وعشائرهم، مجمل عليهم لا يزيد فيهم رجلا ولا ينقص منهم أحدا أبدا، وكتاب كتبه الله، فيه أسماء أهل النار بأسمائهم وأسماء آبائهم وعشائرهم، مجمل عليهم لا يزيد فيهمم رجلا ولا ينقص منهم رجلا، وقد يسلك بالسعيد في طريق الاشقياء ثم يقول الناس كأنه منهم ما أشبهه بهم! بل هو منهم، ثم تداركه السعادة، وقد يسلك بالشقي طريق السعداء حتى يقول الناس: ما أشبهه بهم! بل هو منهم، ثم يتداركه الشقاء، من كتبه الله سعيدا ولو لم يبق من الدنيا شئ إلا فواق ناقة ختم الله له بالسعادة.


5. From him, from Al Nazar Bin Suweyd, from Yahya Bin Imran Al Halby, from Moala Abu Usman, from Ali Bin Hanzala, Abu Abdullah (asws) has said: ‘Two men disputed, at Al-Medina, a Qadiriyya and a man from the people of Makkah. So they both made Abu Abdullah (asws) to be in between the two of them. So they came to him (asws), and they both mentioned their speeches. So he (asws) said: ‘If you both so desire, I shall inform both of you with a speech of Rasool-Allah (saww)?’ So they both said, ‘We so desire it’. So he (asws) said: ‘Rasool-Allah (saww) stood up and ascended the Pulpit. So he (saww) Praised Allah (azwj) and Extolled Him (azwj), then said: ‘Allah (azwj) Wrote a Book by His (azwj) Right Hand, and both of His (azwj) Hands are Right. In it are the names of the inhabitants of the Paradise, by their narmes, and the names of their fathers, and their families, the whole of them. There will not increase among them a single man, nor reduce from them anyone, ever! And a Book Written By Allah (azwj), in which are the name of the inhabitants of the Fire, by their names and the names of their fathers, and their families, the whole of them. There will not increase among them a single man nor reduce from a single man. And the cursed ones may travel upon the way with the successful ones, then the people would be saying, ‘It is as if he is from them, how he resembles them!’ But he is from them. Then you will see the successful one, and he has travelled with the cursed one upon his way, until the people would be saying, ‘How he resembles them!’ But he is from them. Then Bestowed misery upon him, the one for whom Allah (azwj) has Ordained salvation. And even if there were not to remain from the world anything except for the hiccups of the camel, Allah (azwj) would Seal the deliverance for it’.
