32. Death of the foreigner

Back to book

- عنه، عن أحمد بن محمد بن عيسى، عن أحمد بن يوسف بن عقيل، عمن رواه، عن أبى عبد الله (ع) قال: إن الغريب إذا حضره الموت التفت يمنة ويسرة فلم ير أحدا رفع رأسه فيقول الله عزوجل: إلى من تلتفت؟ - إلى من هو خير لك منى؟ - وعزتي وجلالى لان اطلقت عقدتك لاصيرنك إلى طاعتي، ولان قبضتك لاصيرنك إلى كرامتي.

1. From him, from Ahmad Bin Muhammad Bin Isa, from Ahmad Bin Yusuf Bin Aqeel, from the one who reported it, Abu Abdullah (a.s.) has said: ‘If death approaches the foreigner, he turns towards the left and right, so he does not see anyone, raises his head, so Allah Mighty and Majestic Says: ‘Towards whom are you turning to? To the one who is better for you than Me ? By My Honour and My Majesty, because you let go of your Covenant you did not come to My obedience, and if I has Captured you (your soul), you would not have come to My Benevolence’.

عنه، عن ابن محبوب، عن الوابشى، عن أبى محمد، عن أبى عبد الله (ع) قال: ما من مؤمن يموت في أرض غربة يغيب عنه فيها بواكيه إلا بكته بقاع الارض التى كان يعبد الله عليها، وبكته أبوابها، وبكته أبواب السماء التى كان يصعد فيها عمله، وبكى الملكان الموكلان به.

2. From him, from Ibn Mahboub, from Al Wabishy, from Abu Muhammad, Abu Abdullah (a.s.) has said: ‘There is no Believer who dies in a foreign land being lost in it, except that the land upon which he used to Pray would weep over him, and it’s gates would weep over him, and the gates of the sky through which his deeds used to ascend would weep over him, and the two Angels allocated to him would weep over him’.
